A real surprise. Walked in for a meal after grape grazing and stumbled on the outside pizza ovens and casual seating. The main menu looks fabulous but the pizza's were excellent. Lots of locals chatting in this relaxed friendly spot. Definitely worth while on a Friday night again.

The restaurant was one of several highlighted on my visit to the Information Centre and a brief look at the menu convinced me to visit. There was a good choice of entrees, but my eye was drawn to the twice cooked pork and scallop dish, with apple and a berry coulis. My two favourites meats in one dish. Yes, "I'll... More

We went to this restaurant on spec as we were papering only one night in the area and were very pleasantly surprised. Service friendly if a little slow. My entree of oysters was well presented and very fresh. The seafood risotto was wonderful. I ordered the entree size as a main and there was more than enough. My husband said... More

Went for dinner one night during 2014 Coonawarra weekend festival, local accommodation contact recommended it. Fairly busy Sat night, menu had lots of choices with local goods prominent. Wines by the glass & bottle obviously good selection of local Coonawarra. Waitress was a fill-in on her first night covering an absentee, she did a good job. Would go here again... More

We had superb meals at this restaurant. We were so impressed with what we had the first night we went back again another night. Extensive menu, great food and wine. Very friendly and attentive service. Obviously a very popular restaurant in the town judging by the number of people dining there.

From the oysters to the dersert, there was not a complaint from any of th four of us. An impressive wine list, naturally extolling the virtue... More

We had a super meal here of perfectly cooked, succulent steaks with great service and a really good price. The wine by the glass was delicious and great value. The ambiance is a little barn-like, but we had no problems with noise. Highly recommended.
