“A must for lunch each time we visit Nelson”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012 via mobile

Beautiful garden setting, great food, local wines and beer at good prices went with husband yesterday - he loves the chicken focaccia but have been with friends and family in the past - fun for my nephew too with rabbits and a great playground.

“Great food but shocking service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2012

I love the food at this beautiful resturant, but unfortunately the service my girlfriend and I had 3 weeks ago was downright rude. Not one but two waitresses made us feel like we shouldnt have been there. How sad for this business to have 2 rude grumpy waitresses that have no passion or are overworked. Service with a smile would be nice.

“Lovely relaxed setting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

We decided to stop for afternoon tea a quarter of an hour before closing time but were not made to feel rushed at all.It was a hot day and so we appreciated being able to sit outside in the garden under a large sun umbrella.The food here is always excellent as is the coffee, no good for the waistlines though!

“Great food and atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

I attended a weekend brunch with a group of 50 year olds. We had high expectations so we were very pleased that Grape Escape met them all. Lovely food and a great setting. Highly recommended by all of us!

“wine tasting break”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2012

Friendly service, fabulous food - lovely gardens and even a winery to ensure the wine tasting buds didn't languish too long.
The venison pie for lunch was absolutely superb and a large serving so despite the temptations of the dessert cabinet we didn't try.
