Stunning food, wine and service. Nothing could be faulted. Anna our waitress in the main restaurant was superb and Matias in Alibi Brewery was a fabulous host.

Stunning meal in stunning surroundings. Small but extremely tasty and well executed menu accompanied by amazing wine. The pork belly was a real highlight as were the heavenly truffle fries. Go for lunch as the surrounding vineyards are such a pleasure to look out on. Only disappointment was not getting to meet 'Brix' the dog.

Tantalus is a beautiful venue to visit. The service was more than outstanding. The bubbles had such depth to it with a beautiful fruity aftertaste. The food was absolutely amazing with so many textures and flavours.

Hello, your adults food was outstanding and I couldn't fault it - however your children's meals were dreadful and not good value at all sorry. There was very little flexibility as well when we wanted to see if there were other options for children ie just pasta without the package meal etc. Sadly on this occasion Mudbrick the day before came to the party and were so flexible and accommodating for diners with children, that they outshone your restaurant. Flexibility is key from a service perspective (within reason of course)..... I think Tantalus should stick to adults only because you will let yourself down otherwise.....
