“Our second visit, even more impressed than the first time. We chose the 7 course pairing menu and enjoyed every bite. As it was a Saturday the restaurant was packed, but our waiter Warren had been attentive, well informed and delightfully entertaining! An enjoyable food and wine experience!” -coenirma (TripAdvisor)
“We were invited to join 12 of our friends for a wine pairing lunch. Friendly staff all round and a very knowledgeable server who not only knew the different wines, history of the relatively new estate and food pairing combinations, but she relayed everything in a very honest and humorous way. The food was delicious, by the way. We loved it so much and booked a table for my young niece and her husband for 2 days later. When the staff were informed that my niece was pregnant, we were immediately informed that it was no problem, as they have a Tea pairing as a substitute for her. This was served in the same manner as the wine pairing and information about each different tea was very interesting. What a wonderful idea and very inventive. I can highly recommend this amazing experience. Will certainly return in December 2018. Well done.” – Buks v (TripAdvisor)
