After reading the other reviews we decided this was a must try. We started with some of the tapas. The salt and pepper calamari was amazing. My friends had never had calamari that was that fresh before; this is not your typical chewy calamari. We also had the shrimp, also a hit. We then had the blue cod fish and... More

Where to even begin - how about starting with the completely gobsmacking rude and racist treatment my partner and I received when trying to get seated here.

Picton extremely busy over Xmas period with lots of cruise ship passengers and visitors holidaying. Service was great with our eight given a table together. I had the avocado and bacon on toasted ciabatta which was really great. Even though they were extremely busy the meals and coffee's etc came quickly. Well done.

We had dinner at Cortado's after an all day winery tour. We had the dips followed by the seafood platter. It was absolutely amazing and the service was lovely.

We came for breakfast on a sunny Sunday morning. We were particularly impressed with the waitress we had who accommodated our requests (swapping out parts of the Cortado Breakfast for other items) and made sure to check she had everything right. The food was excellent and filled us up nicely in advance of our vineyard tour! Food was slightly slow... More
