This place was recommended to us and did not disappoint. First, the location is amazing, atop a cliff looking out across paddocks to the sea and the mainland. Quite spectacular. But the food was also wonderful. Special call to the seafood pizza which is normally...More

Visited just after opening time, terrific staff and terrific views from the deck. Great wines, pity we were too early for lunch, but we did leave with six bottles that we will enjoy soon.

Stopped in in the way back from the lighthouse. Not much for the kids, missed seeing the free wifi though! Enjoyed the wine tasting and were amused by the 3 ripples. The restaurant looked great, beautiful setting, would love to come back for a meal.More

Don’t miss this place for a nice long lunch in the sunshine. The kids can play in the play ground area and smash a few golf balls while you can sit and relax. 💕

What a great place overlooking the bay. No wonder they have receptions here as well. Oh and the wine tasting went down well too!

We couldn't ignore the wedding requests any longer and had built our function and event room last year for this purpose. Such a stunning back drop for a wedding....the perfect island escape. Glad the tastings went down well too! Cheers!

We were taken to Dudley Wines as a group for wine tasting and a dinner. The views from the veranda are looking out over the rolling hills and ocean. A great spot for a taste of the Dudley Wines. A very breezy location.

Insufferably rude and unhelpful people at this place. Walked out, vowing never to return. They need a crash course in hospitality, courtesy, and how NOT to treat people! Insulting beyond belief. Embarrassed for international visitors.
