It was ok. Nothing really special. Really more catered for the wine tasting. Lunch grilled chicken breast was good. The veggies were good. The other positive is that it has a good view!

The food and wine pairing is excellent and represents good value for money insofar as "Food and Wine Pairing" menu's go. One also has the opportunity to order the items from the a la carte menu as an alternative option.
