This restaurant is in the middle of the vineyards- you feel as if you are part of the farm. The food is really good and the service friendly. Recommended.

We visit this restaurant often, at least twice a month. Their food and wines are well priced and we love their chicken schnitzel. Never been disappointed. The staff are super friendly. Keep up the good service!

We were a group of business friends who spent the best part of the afternoon at Cafe Ruby. The food was beautifully presented and delicious.

I've become a regular at Cafe Ruby for breakfast, their early bird breakfast is my absolute favorite, different and delicious. Also love that they only serve free range eggs and the restaurant is located on a beautiful farm. I prefer their breakfasts over lunch and highly recommend it for a family or friends outing.

Refused to take reservation. Makes it impossible to visit with elderly people without knowing you will get a table. We were shown the door, not even offered the opportunity to wait for 1st available table. Borderline rude!

Beautiful wine tasting, spending time with friends, breakfast, cheese platter and great service venue. The restaurant does not offer a lot of options, but ALL the options are lovely. Service friendly and great. There is plenty space for little people and a chicken and dogs. Worth a try.

It was our first time trying Cafe Ruby, and we were pleasantly surprised! We had the poached eggs and french toast; both were absolutely delicious! They have a cosy and beautifully decorated indoor area for those cold winter mornings as well as a lovely outdoor area for the sunny days.
