Never disappointed by eating here. It happened to be a really lovely sunny day so we were able to sit outside again and that's always a plus in mid April. We both had steak and mine especially was cooked to perfection. I like to know the beast is dead and not running around my plate, and the chef got it exactly right - slightly pink, not raw and not chewy. Love this restaurant!

Only a quick visit to the winery. Got some nice tastes and purchased two bottles. Lovely views over the vineyards. Well worth a visit

The drive up the tree lined road to the winery is really something !

We arrived at the winery and restaurant with no lunch booking on a busy long weekend. We were told they were fully booked but come back in half an hour. We did and asked again and was told the table was ready. Wow !

I had the John Dory fish and husband had the beef fillet. Both dishes were perfectly done. We could barely finish our main course, the servings were more than adequate size.

Service was excellent, even though most of the serving staff look really young. Well done!

Definitely worth a visit again.

Absolutely brilliant. I've been going there for years and I'm probably biased but don't miss this one. A widely travelled guest from Europe a couple of years ago rated an evening there as one of the top ten restaurants he had visited in the world. The setting, the food and especially the wine is all to be savoured. Don't rush this one.

The grounds are beautiful and the entrance to the Mission is breathtaking. However, we were not greeted on arrival at the restaurant and the service staff were 'cool'. This 'coolness' reflected the interior atmosphere as well. The food was just OK but the poor service and unfriendliness of the staff was the disappointment. Would not recommend.
