Came for lunch mid-week in a school holiday period. You park your car and there's a dark weird door which looks a little cold.. but then you walk up to it and it's like a secret James Bond door which automatically opens. Super cool. Had the lunch deal $38- pick of the small, medium, and large plate options which was... More

Setting lovely, view incredible over vineyard, lake and out to ocean. Restaurant interior equally as nice, food very good. Young waitress tried very hard and perhaps a little overwhelmed with business on the day. Perhaps some more support to the inexperienced staff might have been good. Overall a very nice dining experience.

Our booking was for an anniversary lunch and despite feeling unwell as I had migraine we decided to not cancel and hubby would enjoy a meal and I would enjoy the view (which was lovely... More

Sublime experience in an unbeatable atmosphere, the service, the sound, the view and the food could not be better, wonderful time in family. The food was really good but not spectacular, a bit easy. The building itself deserve a mention, fantastic architecture perfectly integrated in the landscape. The winery is fantastic.

We were guests at a friends wedding and it was a great venue. Wedding ceremony on the veranda with views over the vineyard and towards the bay. Inside the bistro and bar areas are pretty cool, funky and functional and pretty good staff!

The food is always good here, pricey but good. The wine tasting is lovely and gives you a little taste of things to come and things to order. Always enjoyed my visits here.
