We had a very nice lunch with all our family. The setting is very nice with views across the vineyard. The wine was delicious and the food excellent. A very good location for a lunch and the celebration of a special occasion.

This place!! Out in the middle of nowhere. Stunning scenery, amazing food! I had a lovely gamey soup type thing, with mash, lovely! Had a good chill out here I remember. Just took it all in... the mountains! Brilliant.

Lovely experience, great food and setting. Quite pricey for the meals, but would come back again. Not a place for young children !

I feel I should contradict the previous reviewer who was unhappy with the coffee and thus nearly stopped my visit. But we needed coffee and experienced excellent service and top quality coffee.
