“Very good bar”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 27, 2012

Very good for a drink in a good atmosphere. Only downside is the drinks are very very pricey. But probably the best small dedicated bar in the vineyards.

“Great looking place, poor service”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 6, 2012

The place looks great and the menu extensive, but the staff were rude when we questioned why our order was incomplete. Not going back

“Looks good, seems good then you realise it's just an expensive pub”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2011

I think they think they are a restaurant but I quickly realised they weren't. I would describe the food as share plates (but not tapas)
I liked the ambiance, wine was great, food was even pretty good - so what was wrong with it? I think seeing the tempus two staff all sitting around and the casual nature of the bar staff, they weren't very educated on the wines or the food it just left you feeling like you were in a pub that had nice decor being served by the local teenagers that lived around the corner.

“i love their service!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 11, 2011

the waitstaff who served us is not only good looking but he has the best waitstaff demeanor. He explained every order we picked, from the serving size, contents and economic value. He also gave the best wine suggestions to match our meal. Over-all he did a good job despite the fried chicken ain't that superb...
