I was very impressed with the breakfast which was included with our stay. We had previously stayed in the spring and found the continental breakfast limiting for someone who can't eat gluten. What a pleasant change - my smoked salmon eggs Benedict were divine. It included bacon (or sausage), toast and the best hash browns I have eaten. My husband's wild mushroom omelette was very good and was just a generous a serving as my eggs. We didn't have dinner at the restaurant this time but did very much enjoy our meal in the spring. I don't feel the restaurant deserves to be ranked so lowly.

6 of us in Picton for 4 days and our first dinner there terrible . First we had a reservation for 7:30 and since we were running a little late called to say we will be there but might be closer to 8. This was unacceptable to the lady who answered the phone citing it was very busy. We hustled along and got there at 7:35. And found only one other couple in the place. 2 sour servers made many heavy sighs as we asked about the menu. They were impatient and when asked where the lamb was from walked to the door of the kitchen and yelled at the chef for an answer. One had the sirloin, it was chewy and grisly, left most of it in chewed clumps on the plate which the server when clearing said nothing. One had the pasta and was bland and tepid in temperature. 2 had the fish special which was clearly under cooked as the skin would not come off. The most disappointing was the servers who had no smiles or sense of humor and clearly uninterested in making a gratuity.

My husband and I recently returned to the Picton area for a tour of vineyards and what we thought would be fine dining. Unfortunately, our memories of a beautiful stay at the Claramont and dinner at Clara's restaurant have now been tarnished forever. Truthfully, we will NEVER go to the restaurant again.

We arrived with a reservation and had a cheese plate and wine out on the deck while we waited for the restaurant to open. Because we were a bit early..the server told us he would "try" to have someone put a cheese plate together for us! Honestly, how difficult is it to put a few cheeses on a plate? Once in for dinner, it went from bad to worse. The appetizer were NON MEMORABLE, our lamb entre's which came highly recommended by our server were COLD, and over done! The server continued to pour our bottle of wine, filling our glasses when it was not appropriate(anyone who drinks or serves red wine should know that you don't fill them)...we soon realized that he was rushing us! There were people out on the deck who wanted to come in and obviously he wanted to seat them at our table...the quick filling of the wine glasses now all made sense! The food was WAY over-priced!! We don't mind paying for a great meal, but this was everything but! The meal and the service was terrible and certainly not worth the money. Unfortunately, this restaurant has gone down hill and I would not recommend to anyone that they go. A COMPLETE DISAPPOINTMENT.
I should however say, the woman working on reception that day (Tuesday, July 31st) was extremely pleasant and courteous. Unfortunately, her pleasant attitude just did not make up for the cold over-cooked food and the terrible service.
