Despite holidaying locally on a regular basis - we had only visited this restaurant once before.
We really enjoyed it the first time and I have been nagging my husband to take me back for lunch which we did. When we arrived we were the only people there despite it being a Saturday. However, this did not detract at all - we sat outside on the lovely terrace and looked at the fabulous scenery. The lady who served us, came across as more than just a waitress as she was very knowledgeable about the menu. She reassured us everything was organic and locally sourced. The organic Chardonnay was the best I have tasted in a long time, in an area where white wine is poor at best. She was very pleasant without being overbearing, we were given all the time in the world to eat and chat and every course was served with interesting details about the origins of the food, and how it was prepared.
When we came to pay, we commented on how nice the home made Cantucci biscuits were and we were given bag to take away.
Cost wise it was in the upper end of what we would pay for a lunch and certainly more expensive thatn other restaurants in the area, but we felt it was worth every penny.
