The venue has beautiful views and it is very nice to sit outside on a sunny day. The food however was very disappointing.

Beautiful surroundings, currently lots of blooming flowers and sunbirds. Restaurants overlooks lush green lawn and pond in front of face-brick cellars. Exquisite mountainous backdrop. Food average and pricey. Service okay. Kid friendly.

We had a lovely lunch! Perfect spot for a family lunch. Lots of fun for the kids including a sweet farm dog who probably isn't allowed but added to the charm. We ordered two versions of the Flammkuchen - tandoori chicken and chorizo - both delicious! Our son had the fish and chips - very small portion suited to smaller... More

The location is just gorgeous. We were taken to the restaurant, and had a lovely table. Throughout, the service was excellent and the food was great. We found it very noisy though, and this is not surprising as there were a lot of people and the floors and walls are hard. However, this was a cold ay in winter and... More

Had a last minute lunch at Bodega on a lovely Saturday afternoon. They were surprisingly quiet and we got a table in the sun on the terrace. Perfect for a chilly winter's day. Our server, Faye, was absolute wonderful. From explaining the Dornier Malbec 2014 wine in terms of colour and tasting notes, without a prompt, to being so confident... More

Went with a group from work at to celebrate a delivery. Excellent tapas and a log fire on a cold winters afternoon. What a great way to end the week. The food was very well prepared and a good variety which went excellently with the wine.

Thank Mark B
