What an absolutely fantastic venue! One of our group had heard a great review, but the experience blew any expectations out of the water.

Right from making the booking when we were asked about dietary needs (one of the group had some) through to the warm reception on arrival, we were very impressed.

The day only got better.

The wine selection was broad enough to cater to the group, but the food, oh the food! Making my mouth water again thinking about it.

The entree was delicious (how you get pork that sticky defies belief), and the main was to die for. Dessert scored a consistent hat trick (and the cheeky post dessert tidbit was gorgeous).

Word of warning: you will want more bread. You will, just accept it.
Don't.
Do.
It.

You will need the room for the VERY generous serves. the staff were very nice to roll us to our car.... thanks for that.

Do your tastebuds a favour and get to the shed.

Still drooling....

Great food, excellent service, good outlook and relaxed atmosphere. We enjoyed a lovely afternoon sitting outside overlooking the lime orchard and vineyard. A great way to celebrate our anniversary.

We walked to the restaurant from our accommodation at Karawatha Cottages. A good way to work up an appetite! The atmosphere was so relaxing, gazing across their vineyards on a warm summer evening being served creative local dishes by knowledgeable and super friendly staff.
