Lovely place to have dinner

Wow! What an estate! This is so beautiful. And the restaurant is really good. We did not try the wine tasting over there but I'm sure it is equally good.

Had supper here with a friend. Food was average service a bit slow but a nice restaurant to go to with kids. Nice outside playing area for kids to run around. Pizza base nice and thin Italian style and interior or restaurant lovely. Quick easy lunch or supper.

They have a wide selection of coffees,... More
