Always great. A beautiful setting and good food and service. Just outside the town - surrounded by orchards and mountains. Love it when the orange blossoms are out. Prefer to eat here than the bustle of the town. Perfect stay over as well.

A most enjoyable restaurant decorated with a successful mixture of antique furniture and modern paintings which were on sale.

Nicely off the main road, beautiful lane with purple tree at the end. Looks like a small farm, is cosy and a distinctive restaurant with lovely food (do eat the delicious carrot cake and 1 piece is surely enough for 2).

We visited as a stop on the wine tram. We arrived and walked around the grounds, which were beautiful. Once seated we were given the tasting menu, you can tick off which wines you'd like to taste. There were 4 of us. Despite having it...More

The dining setting is out of this world which is probably why the sub-par service gets noticed. For example, we ordered a nice bottle of rose and it was poured without a preview. My main plate was cleared while my friend was still enjoying his...More
