We went for a celebration lunch with a big group of us, the staff were attentive, we had a little room just off the courtyard and the food was delicious. All the orders came together, great fir group dining, and all were good. Would definitely recommend it.

This place has now become our favourite restaurant of all time in McClaren Vale! Couldn't fault anything about it. Service, staff, food, wine, atmosphere was stunning.

This is a must if you like great food and very good wine list. Good value for money, in a beautiful setting. Book early as this is one of McLaren Flat / McLaren Vales better restaurants.

Went with a friend for lunch...was a little disappointed as it had been highly recommended. The servings are small and it very pricey for what it is. Lovely setting though...
