I have been twice in the last few weeks. In fact it is a regular watering hole. The food is super and the ambience very pleasant but my only criticism is that both times recently I have been a with a large group to celebrate end of year. In other places the table has been decorated with festive cheer and a waitress to take our orders. Unfortunately having everybody going up to the counter to order food individually and join the rest of the queue didn't quite make for the party atmosphere, which resulted in everybody eating at different times.

Love this cafe - especially the food!! A wonderful selection displayed in the cabinet. Good coffee too!! When the weather is good, we look forward to sitting outdoors and seeing the lovely waterfall across the valley. Also dog friendly with plenty of parking. There is also a well stocked gift shop beside the cafe.

Have been twice for lunch in the last couple of months and each time have found the staff to be very pleasant and good service. The variety of food is very good, sometimes making it difficult to choose. Both times have throughly enjoyed my choices, especially the beetroot salad with pistachio, date and feta. It is really pleasant to browse the gallery which gives it a point of difference. The outdoor seating is great on a nice day and very pleasant outlook of the grounds. All in all a great place for a relaxing lunch. Will be back again.

We have been here twice in recent weeks and will make this a regular place to have lunch in the future. On both occasions the food was extremely tasty with well-proportioned sizes. Too often lunchtime fare looks good in the cabinet but is very bland.This was definitely not the case here. The waiting staff were friendly and efficient without being intrusive. There are a variety of areas to chose to sit both inside and out so if you want to dine without child-noise as we do, escape is possible.The price of the food is also very reasonable. Highly recommended.

Decided to visit this for a meal considering its ratings but was extremely disappointed to discover that it was just a small café with café food and beverages. A nice café but not for hungry diners like us. Service was self service and dining was rudimentary.
