The cappuccino was flat with no froth - bad start to the breakfast, though admittedly the complimentary canapé of muesli was an original touch. The breakfast was greasy and your ordinary fair, nothing to make a special trip for. The service was a little on the longer wait side but the views were nice. Overall, underwhelming.

The food here is fabulous, visited for breakfast and had the banana pancakes but couldn't eat them all.

Family meeting for breakfast- beautiful setting in a lovely restaurant looking out over the vineyards. We had two small boys with us, but this was no problem for staff. A number of high hairs were available and kids menus were presented to us. The food was freshly prepared and quite delicious. Staff were helpful, attentive and courteous ( one was a little condescending)

We had a good breakfast here, everything as expected but no 'extra' ... service or food. Small issue with the waiter not listening, but fine. Not however a must stop. If you go on the weekend it is packed and definitely book. The full restaurant is quite noisy.

Freezing cold, draughty inside, no staff came to attend to us once we were seated, no one to top up our water, no one came for ages to take any orders. One stingy bread roll was plonked onto our plates about 30 minutes in....then nothing, I mean nothing for about 40 minutes. This was a lunch for 30 people and it was not even that busy in the place. The lamb entree is 20% lamb, 80 globules of fat. The mains were atrocious: someone complained about their barramundi being cold inside: was not eaten. The linguini with a pumpkin sauce was an unappetising gluggy sauce that congealed on top of package noodles. My friend picked at it uninspired, left half on her plate. The main meal of lamb was a joke: one big RAW, bloody lump of lamb, inedible (I watched as people attempted to cut their pieces but no luck, they all left half on the plate. The undercooked meat sat heavily on a mess of half mushed beetroot. I guess it was supposed to be a purree but looked more like the blender had broken half way through and they served this half chopped up muck. Again, no one finished their meals. Waiters: please take a moment to look at the plates you collect at the meal's end: pause; reflect: if all the plates have the same, unfinished food left on the plates, it means one thing: INEDIBLE. Fire the chefs.
