Fodor's Review

The dark-tiled floor and white tablecloths with sparkling cutlery and glassware put this classy dining area way above the usual winery restaurant. A wrought-iron door entrance, black leather chairs, and polished-brass ceiling fan add to the aura. From the prix fixe dinner menu, start with a glass of sauvignon and soup of the day, choose from the main course the fillet of Angus beef slow poached in olive oil followed by lemon bakewell tart served warm on lemon curd for dessert and end with petit fours. If you prefer casual outdoor dining for lunch try the patio with a view of the vineyards where tasting platters, salads, pizzas, and desserts are served. It all comes with impeccable and friendly service.
