A great venue with knowledgeable staff. The platter was lovely with plenty of bread and a second pot of olive oil happily provided. The tapenade and other dips were great too. We had the tasting wines, the syrah is divine!

Visited with friends and had a shared platter which was excellent. I'm not a wine drinker but did take the opportunity to do some tasting. Friendly atmosphere and lovely venue. Worth a visit if you are in the area.

The wines are certainly worth a taste, and the experience enhanced by a very knowledgeable host. The luncheon plate was outstanding - varied, tasty and beautifully presented.

Hi Liz Unfortunately we are only open during the day, serving lunch platters to share. They work well for celebratory gatherings so if you decide to change your plans and come in the daytime, you can see the menu on our... More
