Went there will a group of 8. The food was fabulous! We all agreed on the Chefs Choice and it turned out to be a good decision. The scallop ceviche was beautifully prepared as was the duck and beef. we all loved the cucumber frozen ice served as a sorbet. The service was impeccable and the setting is beautiful.

Well this is really a beautiful restaurant with a setting which makes you feel you are in South France. Muff and Sam are great hosts, they even let us taste different local wines to choose the perfect match for our food! We chose the 4 course treat, which was great from the spectacular lobster broth, a great meat platter to... More

Don't be fooled by the description ' French influence'. The food is boring and poorly prepared. The steak was so tough that I sent it back only to be served a chicken dish of non descript flavours sitting in a pool of something like corn broth. My wife was served duck with a sweet sauce but the breast was very... More

I was there with a large group and we started outside with the scallops and other tasty finger foods. The main was a beef cooked very slow and low (sous vide) in a bag in water, the result was a nice medium rare piece of beef accompanied with assorted veges. Finished off with a cheese platter and a few wines... More

We've eaten here on a number of occasions and its always been very good. It's a lovely setting once inside and the blossoms were out on our visit. The staff are always friendly and welcoming. However, on this past visit we all felt that the food just wasn't as good as usual. I started off with scallops which we've always... More

Everything about this restaurant is very good or I might go as far as saying exceptional! The staff are very friendly and efficient, the atmosphere and outlook very good and our meal was one of the best we have ever had. The menu covers most tastes, with deserts that are fantastic. The wine list is comprehensive and very much supporting... More

This little gem is a pleasant place to visit. Set in the grape growing district the setting is perfect with beautiful gardens and even the toilet area has a nice indoor garden which is a first for me. The menu is appetising and interesting. We started with the pear breads with fresh beetroot dip and the bread was excellent. A... More

Beautiful venue. Excellent staff and service. Attentive but not obvious.The menu was well thought out and would please a broad range of people. The Chef has a great knowledge of balance of flavours. Excellent selection of local wines. Will return for special occasion. Went will friends to celebrate an event and we all left very happy.
