Great venue for our group function. Thank you very much
absolutely wonderful lunch, with lunching ladies who had never been before but promised to return
10/10 could not fault anything. Just awesome, I highly recommend it
We did a wine tasting next door at upper reach winery first delicious wines .Then lunch at cafe beautiful food ,service & setting
We had a tasting share plate and the food was absolutely divine! There was a lovely variety of tasty morsels on the platter and the portion size was good. It was so nice to have something other than the usual cold meats and cheeses that many other places have. We each had a very nice cocktail to drink. We did taste the wines and found quite a few that were to our liking. The cellar door prices are good, but the prices of the wine in the restaurant are more expensive. The ladies who served us in the restaurant were attentive but not intrusive. We had such a fabulous time that we are already planning to go back soon.
A very acceptable lunch in a lovely location. Service was kind and the right balance of prompt without being pushy. All our dishes - which we ate as share plates - were good. The pancetta salad, arancini, couscous salad with chicken. Portion of chicken was generous and properly cooked - tender and NoT overdone. The side of chips was disappointing in size, and in that they still seems undercooked and not hot, despite apparently being thrice cooked. This could so easily have been fixed. Whilst the 2 salads we had were both good, we found them a bit “samey” i.e. a lot of common elements. With just a little more easy effort they could have been more distinct and all the better for it. Overall a good effort and was close to being a higher rating. Well worth a try and I hope the staff can make those few small tweaks that’ll make it even better. Thanks.
Wonderful meal in a beautiful setting. We were on a tight time schedule as we needed to get to the airport for a flight. Called ahead and explained and pre-ordered. They ensured we didn’t have to wait long for our food so we didn’t need to rush through the meal. The Herbivore platter was a great hit. The Mediterranean platter was delicious, but serve was a little small for the price paid. Other than that, we had a lovely experience.
Unfortunately there was along wait for our meal, then when the fish came it was raw in the middle, the waitress took it back and they just chucked it back in the deep fryer, when she bought it back she said they were unable to give us a new piece of fish as this was the last one..... hmmmmmm, there was also no offer of reducing the bill or even an apology for a less than satisfactory main course. The meals were also a little on the small side for the prices charged. We had to ask the waitress for more drinks and also to even see a dessert menu....all in all quite a disappointing first time to this promising venue. :(
All our meat that was served was cold. Two shared platters were ordered and 1 beef steak. Whilst the food was good, the cold meat was slightly off putting. As we had two small children and 1 type 1 diabetic in the group, we were not in a position to send the food back and wait longer for this to be sorted. We also noticed that the one of the beers we ordered had actually expired. When we mentioned the cold food to the waitress, she checked with the chef and replied that 'yes the meat was supposed to be warm'. Nothing further was done.
We celebrated our 47th wedding anniversary together having lunch. The staff were very attentive. The food was first class, the steak was cooked to perfection. The atmosphere was excellent and the view was so beautiful and relaxing right down to the choice of background music. We look forward to returning with friends in the near future. Thank you Ann & George Dawson
