Such a relaxing atmosphere out on the patio with the gorgeous view. Good menu options and everything looks/tastes great. Dips plate comes with 4 dips, bread and cut veges. Main portions were good and reasonably priced. Would be a great wedding venue too!

For lunch itself we shared a Charcuerie Platter and was just "ok" The Service was however amazing the girl who served us was very knowledgable and... More

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.

Went there for lunch. The food was great and so were the staff but they were far too slow with their service. We spent about two and a half hours for lunch with and entree main course and desert.... And that restricted the number to wineries we could visit after lunch. Book a table for sure and order everything at... More

Not on a main road, quiet, but some interesting main courses combined with a range of McLaren Vale wines. Easy patron access. Plenty of parking. Pleasant orchard views. Impossible to find anything to dislike.

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.

11 of us went for a 40th birthday Saturday lunch. The 2 girls (including the head waitress) who looked after our table were absolutely shocking. Not just disinterested....completely arrogant and rude. Everything was an inconvenience. Not a smile during the whole service. Waited 30 minutes before they bothered to ask anyone if they wanted a drink. Not once did they... More

This was our third visit and the consistent quality was evident again. Very good food, knowledgeable and friendly staff and beautiful setting. For the quality we think it is pretty good value. If you are a visitor to the region it should definitely be on your list as I reckon it's in the best two or three eateries in the... More
