Nice lunch inside a wonderful venue with a great view of the wine vats and barrels which adds to the charm.

Great table service! Really great with kids suggesting to order their lunch first. I didn't know what to order and the waitress came back later to check on me, didn't feel rushed.

It was disappointing that they ran out of the pasta dish on the first day of the new menu, considering 4 of our guests were wanting to order it.

Sunday’s are enjoyable with the singer playing the guitar but he was hidden from view as we were seated behind a wide support and half on the walkway for a large party group. Seating arrangement could have been improved - we didn’t linger.i

I came for lunch with my parents and sister yesterday and I would never come back. It was a disappointing experience particularly as it was my sisters birthday and wanted the lunch to be a special experience. Firstly when l booked online I highlighted it was my sisters birthday. When we arrived yesterday, we waited to be seated for some time with no acknowledgement and then the restaurant host could not even acknowledge it was my sisters birthday. What is the point of providing comments when you make an initial booking?? We were told we had to wait 30min for food, we waited over 45 min, at which point 2 dishes came out and then 20 late the other 2 dishes we ordered arrived. These should have all come out together. Our drinks took 30 min to come out too. Given it was aweekend and there was an event on outside, the management team should have rostered additional waiting, bar and kitchen staff. The food was disappointing, nearly every dish is bulked up with focaccia! Definitely not value for money. The "pizzas" you serve should be called focaccia with tops, pizzas should have a thin and crisp base. Again a disappointing experience and waste of money.
