Visited on a lovely Saturday, sat outside. It was very busy, but the waiters were friendly and efficient. The pizza and salad was tasty and just the right size. Will visit again. Thank you.

Had a lovely meal here, food good, service also good. For wine tasting it was a much busier farm with lots of people and lots more to do such a chocolate, beer meat tasting etc so so that was great. Stunning setting with breathtaking views. Would I go back, yes!

We sat right on the edge of the outside restaurant area with magnificent views of the valley below and mountains beyond. Service was good and food and house wine good value for money. Would certainly like to visit again!

There are three restaurants, wine tasting, cured meats, chocolate and craft beer as well as Red Hot Glass and other curio shops all on site. Well maintained, well kep, beautiful setting and fairly well sign posted between attractions.

Chocolatery, coffee roasters, ice cream, burgers, pizza and more. Great stop for all and large grounds offer the opportunity to stretch your legs or devour your chocolate under a shady tree. The road leading there from the high way is tarred, so no need to worry.

Called off spec here, we loved it. Service was excellent, efficient, warm and friendly. The wine was delicious ( Fairview champagne - try it !!) The pizza was as good as any we've had in Italy.

My second visit to Spice Route and I must say a better experience second time round. The craft beer tasting is a must do and taste experience and certainly not to be missed. A lovely family, couples or friends venue to hang out. Go early to avoid congestion on the road, book your table, wear comfortable shoes, don your sunhat... More

Due to the popularity of the venue it is advisable to book so as to avoid disappointment. The outside benches under the trees are ideal for a summer meal. There is plenty to keep the kids (play park) and adults (gin tasting etc ;-) busy. The Flammkuchen are brilliant!
