Booking from the uk was easy and we had the balcony seat we requested with the beautiful view. We had the tasting menu with wine including a glass of sparkly to start with. Excellent value and service. A Sunday lunch to remember.

It is not surprising that the bulk of our clientele are people who have been here before as well as their friends and colleagues who have recommended it. As you dine, you and your guests will enjoy an unbelievable vista of the softly sweeping vineyards and rolling hills of Devon Valley - so reminiscent of their English counterpart - and the pastel-coloured mountains behind them. It is an incomparable view that will help create a pleasurable and utterly memorable experience.

She is one of the most experienced chefs in the country and has been voted Chef of the Year for her sublime dishes.
