This is a beautiful, relaxed location. The pizzas are delicious. So is the wine. There's lots of space for the kids to run around in.

The only problem is slow service. It should not take 50 minutes to produce 4 pizzas and a bowl of chips. It was a busy time of year but it was the second time I have had very slow service therein two visits over two years. Be prepared to drink a lot while you wait.

Lovely setting. Knowledgable, sweet staff. Tasty, well presented lunch. Toasted bread was a little iffy with the liver pate, staff were quick to bring fresh bread. Fantastic wine tasting session, with all the pomp and circumstance we have come to expect from an expert....it wasn't over the top, it was just right! My sister and I shared a bottle of sparkling rose, fabulous! The guys had a glass of Chardonnay and Viognier, both delicious.

We were pleasantly surprised that the coffee here is amazing! And this comes from coffee lovers who are incredibly critical and hard to please, yet discerning coffee lovers.
