We met friend for lunch and enjoyed the tranquil setting. The autumn menu has just been released & I enjoyed the fig & goats cheese salad. Of course the sparkling wine was excellent.

We enjoyed a delicious lunch here which included wine tasting. The setting of Cuvee Restaurant is lovely and the service was great throughout, the wines were served at the correct temperature and were delicious. We had a three course meal, all trying different dishes and everyone was convinced their dish was best!

We have at the spur of the moment decided to go there when our favourite wine farm restaurant was fully booked, it was absolutely excellent food with good service. My wife's fig salad was really exceptional, and so the risotto and Panga linefish. And the cappuccino one of the very best after a pleasant meal. Country style food at its... More

My girlfriend and I decided to do something special this year for Valentine's and so we booked at Cuvee for their Valentine's Dinner. Right from the making of the reservation through to paying the bill the service we received was excellent! We tried almost all of the options from the 3 course set meal options and there was not one... More

We were pleasantly surprised. We had a Saturday lunch with the family. Menu has pasta to red meat. Wine list is comprehensive and the staff is pleasant. Take a bottle of bubbles and go sit under the trees after your meal

On the Vine Hopper wine tour recommended by the driver (was he getting a backhander??) that this was the best place to have lunch so was looking forward to arriving. Didn't want much and didn't find the menu particularly inviting so chose the aubergine tart. When it came it was a slice of puff pastry heaped with salad, nuts and... More

I was delighted to discover their new Bistro Menu and that they no longer do Fine Dining at lunchtime! I had the salad with deepfried tofu which was simply one of the most delicious and different salads I have ever had. My friends had some of the other salads - all delicious! Well done Cuvee!! You are now my new... More
