My husband and I decided to travel up to the vineyards from Newcastle for our anniversary dinner. The restaurant was lovely. Service was friendly and of a great standard. The food was absolutely beautiful! So glad we ventured to the valley for a special dinner!

The food was amazing. I had the salmon and my husband had the steak. The flavours complemented each other to perfection and the meal sizes were just the correct amount. Desert was their Gelato and Apple Tortellini....delicious. Delicious food. Loved it
