The overall experience was amazing. We came at a very busy time hence the wait staff were really very busy. But the food, the ambience were top notch.

The entrees were great, but the beef main was lacking in flavour even after putting salt and pepper on it. The cheeseboard was great but the coffee was luke warm and bitter. Excellent Pinot Gris and sav and nice surroundings

Mainly great but the duck confit was tough - difficult to cut through and hard to chew. Very disappointing

We took friends today and had a super meal with a nice Syrah. The duck was a fantastic dish as too was the lamb rack that others had. A great venue for lunch.

Celebrated my partners birthday. She even got a glass of bubbly which was great. The food was delicious. The service was friendly. We relaxed on the beanbags under the trees after lunch. A special day for my special woman. She loved it.
