The restuarant is situated in the middle of the vineyards with splendid views towards the mountains. Outdoor seating is available under shade. A wide variety of delicious choices from the buffet will ensure that we come back again.

Terrible service. Not welcoming at all. Don't waist your time going there. Know one seats you and you have to call for waiters attention non stop. We eventually fetched our own pizzas at the pizza oven. Manager was also rude!
