Beautiful view of the mountain as the sunset at 7pm. And really good food too. Ceviche was fabulous, the pork was done to perfection and the sweet potato purée was the perfect accomplishment.

We had a lovely dinner with family - the food was... More

Exciting food superbly presented and lovely flavours. More towards "fine dining" than cafe style - good for a special occasion. The wine list is interesting with many by the glass. Keith Tullock wines are featured - cellar door in the same building and worth doing a tasting beforehand. We sat outside under shady umbrellas overlooking the garden, the winery building... More

Beautiful venue in a stunning location. The ambiance in this venue is superb Not a extensive menu, but one that has been carefully crafted. Dishes did not disappoint and were beautifully presented. The wine list matches perfectly with the menu and the staff are able to talk knowledgeably about both. Hope to return soon.

Set in the Keith Tulloch Winery, this is a lovely restaurant with a fresh and innovative menu. We particularly enjoyed the smoked salmon starter and the market fish main. Service was friendly but seemed a little stretched on a busy sunny lunchtime. The wine list offered plenty of excellent choices.
