“Lunch break”
Reviewed 19 February 2012

Service and food are great and much better than you would expect in a museum or garden site. Great place to enjoy a good meal and get ready for spending more time enjoying the gardens.

“Super!!!”
Reviewed 13 February 2012

We did the gardens in the cool morning sun and tree canopy. Stopped at the restaurant about 11:00. It is fresh, clean, neat, great service, and a wonderful variety of food. Then off to the water show at noon....what a treat.
