Food is superb... been here twice... starters and mains I cannot fault.
It is expensive but it is definitely value for money! Great view and setting, nice for intimate meals as well!

We dined at the restaurant on a sunny Sunday in August, with the table set a for a spectacular view of the vineyards.
We ordered the catch of the day - which was Yellowtail (very bland no real sauce or anything accompanying the dish apart from steamed veg) and pork belly (very nice).
Chenin Blanc was great for the warm day.
We had baked apple tart and Creme Brulee for dessert which which were delicious!
Service was a bit iffy.
Was a good meal overall, but have definitely had better...

We visited Guardian Peak Restaurant in July 2014 and were amazed by the amazing mountain and vinyard views. The service was good and the food amazing. The wines were even better! We bought a couple of the Guardian Peak cultivars and absolutely love the GP Merlot!

Not easy to book a table over 8 people even if they have to split it. A very small menu and most of the food not cooked very well. Dry burger, overcooked steak,
cold chips and Ravioli could not be eaten. Asked if we could bring a birthday cake we were informed that there would be a 370.00 cakeage charge that is a first for me. Best part of the meal was the great way the hostess Natalie handled the complaint . We were not the only table to complain and it is not our first time at this restaurant but might be our last as it was more or less the same problem on other visits. I feel that the restaurant survives on its grest views of the mountains not on it very average food.

We came for an end of year function and I was impressed with how nice it was. The views are absolutely amazing all around and the menu does have interesting dishes on it other than the old favourites. very professional service although the waitress was a bit rude at one stage.
