“Amazing dinner and spectacular view.”
Reviewed April 19, 2013

I went here to celebrate my boyfriend´s birthday and it was awesome. We got there around 8:30 pm and leave past 11pm, we just didn't want to leave. The place is really nice all wooden details and decorated with flowers and candles, very romantic. The view is amazing, even that day that has been raining all afternoon. Great service as well, we couldn't have chosen a better place to celebrate. Prices are fair, and the food is really good. I almost never order dessert, because I'm full after main course, but this time we did ask and share it, no regrets at all :)

“Delicious food and wine, romantic ambience.”
Reviewed February 15, 2013

My husband took me here for my birthday, and I thought it was a beautiful place. We went for dinner, so I couldn't see it in the light of day, but there was lots of outside seating on a roofed balcony overlooking the valley, with plants everywhere. A peaceful, almost magical environment. We sat indoors, close to the chimney with a fire burning in it.

I had one of the best wines I've ever had there, called Newen Pinor Noir from Patagonia. I thought the food was delicious too. And it was an added bonus knowing that the vegetables were mostly sourced from their own farm!

I would love to go back and visit again for brunch, and spend the day on the property, which seems lovely.

Oh yes, and the service was spot on. I really liked the waitress. She was nice and attentive, but genuine and not overbearing.

“excellent!”
Reviewed November 19, 2012

love the scenery and atmosphere of this place. we had two appetizers and shared an entree -- it was all very good. they also have good cocktails :) Not only did we eat dinner here but ate breakfast as well (since we were staying on the property overnight). breakfast was fabulous too -- the view is even better during the day and our breakfast tasted great. Highly recommend this place!
