We had a birthday celebration lunch for 14 people and were able to select individual dishes, not a set menu. The staff were friendly and attentive although the service was a bit slow but that was good as we could relax and not rush. They...More

Although this restaurant was highly recommended we were very disappointed with the menu selection (which was relatively highly priced) as well as the rather officious approach of the staff who assign you one specific table and no other even though the place was almost empty....More

We had breakfast at this well known spot today. The eggs Benedict were just perfect. This continues to be a well managed place! Long may it continue.

Nice setting, the ambiguous comments on this site are most probably true. We got the wrong afternoon. Restaurant nice surrounding. Disappointing: no menu of the day. Main dish Sea Bass not well seasoned. And astonishing: quality of open wines is better even in Hussars Grill!...More

Enjoyed lunch under an umbrella on the verandah. Salad included colorful flowers. All the food was tasteful and the wine was good. Service was also good. Setting among the vineyards was delightful.

A quaint, rustic setting with a simple but excellent menu. The piano music, live, thru out the evening was a plus. We had various choices from beef, pork belly and sea bass. Every dish met or exceeded our expectation.
