we were looking forward to locally high rated stone farm house after manipulating the tricky drive up the mountain..building is beautiful..no AC but that doesn't matter with the two feet wide stone walls ..just enough breeze to be comfy...o.k. the best part is over...they hype their butchers table in the kitchen( you can go there to select your dinner if you are choosing from that part of the menu).the young lady showing it to us was pierced in several facial places , not so clean nails and did not know what the red meats were...i did select from the table..shrinp and scallops( three scallops, five shrimp) at our table i also chose to have the risotto with my meal..the fish were sooo salty, the carrots were large chunks really undercooked..other than warm, you could say they were raw..the risotto came luke warm and i had that taken back.
my husband had sweetbreads over mashed potatoes with what tasted like kale..maybe black cabbage? he said it was average and nothing special. will say,we tried pork belly for the first time and it was well crusted and very meaty, not having anything to compare it to i will say it was good..they were pushing small bottles of wine and since wee had the trip back down the mt. my husband opted for that..i had cava brut which is a fav. of mine...now all of this cost us over two hundred $..if the dinner had been good we would have been pleased but feel it is over priced for the food prep. and that they are relying on the past owners reputation...if you are really a foodie ,we advise you forget this one..but if you like beautiful archetecture.go by all means but skip the butcher table part of the menu.
