Lunch Saturday - Great food was complemented by super friendly and helpful staff. Our party left feeling happy and impressed. Wine tasting is a must, helps you to decide what you will have with lunch. Everyone commented on the great flavors and presentation of their...mains. Recommend the long board if you cant decide. Pop to the kitchen servery to thank the chefs in person!More

Friendly service and staff, need to book in advance. Food cooked to perfection. In door and out door dinning. Can be loud but worth it.

A really nice drive out through the Moutere Hills to this winery restaurant. Indoor and outdoor dining - overlooking the vineyards. Beautiful food and attentive staff.

If you want something a little out of the ordinary give the long board a go. 5 delectable little morsels to whet your appetite. Apparently they change all the time so good for repeat diners. One of the waitresses was great had the specials down...pat and didnt read from a list plus could explain the wine pairing. It pays to book in the weekend and request an outside table or one by the window as the view over the vineyard is nice. It's a little way out but worth the drive.More

Group of 6. Three for the long board, 1 for the pork , 1 charred beef fillet and one duck breast. A side of curried cauliflower which was superb and fries. Four had desserts. Two bottles of Reserve Chardonnay and one Reserve Syrah. Food, wine...and service could not be faulted. Always great to have a destination you can recommend with confidence to friends and travellers.More

This spot is popular, with good reason. Good menu, nice wines...perfect recipe for passing a long lunchtime.

We had lunch here and even in the middle of the week the place was near full. If the weather allows, opt for a table outside. The views are great. We had the long board (five tapas portions) with a flight of wine (comes with...two white and one red) each. Although enjoyable, the price was steep for the quality of the food. Our neighbours' shared platter looked like a much better option.More
