“A pleasant experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 24, 2013

Set in a vineyard with views of the glorious surrounding countryside regrettably somewhat limited by quite small windows, the food and service were very good. Suggested wines went well with the courses. Some dishes were a little contrived and "decorated" and the gelato dish was particularly disappointing in this context as one only very small scoop of a delicious gelato was overwhelmed by large portions of a strange chocolatey cake. Two scoops of gelato and less cake would have made a much more satisfying (and better value for the steep price) dish. It also seems greedy to charge extra for a tiny dish of vegetables or salad when the prices are so high. Overall, however, a pleasant dining experience which with some small changes could be memorable.

“Great food, great night”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2013

What more can I say...great service too!

We ordered a taxi home earlier than we needed it at their recommendation - good idea as it took a while to arrive.

“Savoured every bite!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 11, 2013

Such a cool country restaurant. Views outside were amazing, love the fact that it was a little way out of town on a vineyard.. Food was sensational. Got a bit of food envy when I tasted my hubby's entree dish of crab and avocado - however my goats curd was delicious. The duck for main was hands down the best duck I have ever had and hubby's lamb just melted in your mouth. Dessert my favourite...it was so amazing! Very creative with the rice pudding sorbet and the passionfruit and coffee one. It was the perfect end to the meal. The waitstaff were very helpful and lovely. Heaps of beautiful local wines to try - Will definitely come back.

“Great night”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 7, 2013

We had a fabulous night here. All 3 courses were delicious, Richard (who looked after us for the evening) was very friendly and knowledgeable and the suggested wines matched the meals perfectly. The chef did a great job of showcasing local produce.

“Excellent service, good food and lovely position.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 2, 2013

Visited December 2012. Met at the door and escorted to table. Our waitress was always quickly aware of next needs. Meals were prepared just right, excellent flavours and ample size. Dessert special for the night we were there was to die-for. Wines were very nice. An all round very pleasant evening.
