Our first visit & dining experience here & we all enjoyed it thoroughly. What a gorgeous setting. A small restaurant with a very picturesque outlook even from the bathrooms! The tables were a nice size with comfortable seats & not noisy @ all. The staff were all very friendly & attentive. We shared a platter of seafood meat cheese &... More

We were a table of 12 and were very disappointed in the service, the waitress couldn't tell us about the champagne and what was on the platters. They would have got so much more alcohol sales from us if they bothered to come out and serve us. Such a shame for a four and a half star service restaurant.

We had anticipated your review and were interested to see your comments. On the day we were prepared for your group of 12, as booked, however we had not anticipated that you would arrive on a bus with an esky in tow. Our concerns were raised further when one of your group immediately removed a stubby and consumed it before... More

Today we had the pleasure of eating at this amazing restaurant. To say to food was amazing would be an understatement. It was more than we expected taste wise from each course. The service was friendly and efficient. I couldn't fault anything except perhaps that I wish I could go back tomorrow and eat there again.

Had no expectations about our Saturday lunch. On reading the menu there were many choices that looked rather interesting to try. However, the girls, decided they wanted to try the degustation menu. Spectacular! Wonderful presentation and surprising ingredients that complimented the dish without over powering the whole. Selections included cold pork rillettes (my favourite) then roman gnocchi with blue cheese... More

Lunch with the BFF was perfect. Started with a lovely vegetarian tart/ roast vegetable option which was followed by the sous vide chicken main. Our initial intention was to stop there but we were tempted by the dessert menu and subsequently ordered the 'Oh Pear!' Dessert - what a show stopper! Do yourself a favour and try that! Accompanied by... More

Melbourne based colleague stayed on after his regular trip to Adelaide joined by wife, sister-in-law and her partner from Italy. We chose one of my favourites for a lunch on a stunning Sunday. As usual the staff were friendly and helpful as was the owner. There were a couple of disappointing aspects. My colleague's wife is vegetarian and they had... More

Lovely Sunday lunch with friends, beautiful setting and gardens, cleverly designed. Chef Ryan and the lovely waiting staff we couldn't fault. Tried the degustation menu ($65pp) which was 5 dishes including generous serves of scallops, duck, gnocchi, pork, a refreshing cucumber & granita sorbet (divine!) then desserts - including 3 full serves. Presentation and taste amazing, full marks and highly... More

We sat in the garden under the shade of a tree right next to the grape vines. Absolutely beautiful especially on such a nice sunny day and a gentle breeze. Could have been in Tuscany. The degustation menu was quite good value but some thought a little more on each plate would have been just the tick. All courses were... More

Devine, the food, wine, service is just awesome! Situated in Mclaren Vale amongst the Vines. How could you not be happy. I would recommend this place instantly to anyone wanting that little more.
