Fodor's Review

This is a good place to try wines that never make it to the mainland. The vineyard produces a small portfolio of whites and reds and serves them along with those of other tiny producers. Because bordeaux varieties predominate on the island, the food emphasis is on red meat; particular favorites are the rack of lamb and Black Angus eye filet. The front terrace is the best spot to take in the harbor views. Mudbrick is open for lunch and dinner daily, year-round, and many people like to arrive by helicopter. It's a popular spot for weddings so it pays to ring before heading there.

Poor food and wine. Overpriced and bad service. Avoid if you can and try Stonyridge or Passage Rock.

Perfect for Lunch

This was the perfect way to top off a tour of the island. The views are spectacular,the food is delicious, the wine list features local and other wines and the service could not have been more attentive. We will revisit this Paradise.
