A delicious platter! Lovely surroundings. Friendly staff.
The table so close to the vines you could almost touch the grapes!

The only positive aspect about this place, is the surrounding! the service was THE WORST I have ever experienced. The food quality was disappointing, and I just felt like shooting someone. after we sat and waited for 15 minutes, we asked the waitress to take or order. WHICH SHE DIDNT. after another ten minutes, we asked another one and she did take the order. 20 minutes later, the first waitress came around to check if we had managed to order.... YES BUT NOT THANKS TO YOU. it was just a big disappointment and actually a waste of time and money. You are much BETTER off elsewhere.

We visited two saturdays in a row and were impressed both times. The second being during Martinborough fair so it was busy but the live music and fantastic staff meant we really enjoyed our afternoon. The food was superb on both visits, try the lamb burgers they are amazing. We have three lively young children and they were able to go off adventuring. So all in all a great family cafe that we all really enjoyed. The wine is a pretty good reason to visit as well. We will be back.

We called in around 4 pm on a beautiful Saturday. The Cafe advertised as being open until "early evening". Only tapas and pizza were available. The pizza was lukewarm and bland.
On the plus side the staff were friendly and the setting superb.
We also found the sampling room manned by a great hostess who informed without appearing superior. Wines very acceptable. Room got quite crowded.

We went for lunch on a hot, sunny and busy Saturday afternoon. The staff were very helpful and friendly, and were quick to find us a table, despite being pretty full. There was a wait time of 40 minutes on the food, but our waitress made this clear at the beginning. We didn't mind as we were in no hurry, and more than happy to sit in the shade sipping nice wine from their vineyard (Margrain), and admire the picturesque view over the grapevines. Lovely. We ordered from the 'Specials' blackboard (prices around $17), and our meals were very nice.
