We enjoyed the beautiful food. The servings are small (fine dining) and the men in our group actually still felt hungry after a shared entree, main and a dessert each. I felt for the price, the main could've included a couple of extra sides and that would've helped. Everything tasted amazing though and it was so nice to enjoy the lovely view and try out the lovely Brancott wines. Staff were very friendly and accomodating. We will be back!

Six of us who are locals went for Sunday lunch and with mixed a response. The restaurant when busy is always so noisy with concrete floors and no sound deafening. ( A problem several wineries in the area suffer from). When out for a meal with friends it's nice to chat and not have to shout!
Mixed response for the meal. Two of us had the fish of the day which was very good. The Chicken Breast was full of cream cheese and rather disappointing, both men opted for the Fillet steak and both agreed the meat was excellent but a lonely steak with a pastry! tart filled with potato and apparently some veg and nothing else for $36 dollars was a joke. Come on guys, nothing better than a steak with some nice Frites and local veg, (asparagus going for a song locally at the moment) perhaps a nice green pepper sauce makes a meal. Not rocket science. Both men left hungry and disappointed and fed up with so called designer plates which seem masquerade as meals these days.
We like to go out for Sunday lunch but finding it so difficult to find somewhere locally that we come away having enjoyed the meal. Prices have gone up and standards down.

Delicious lunch overlooking the vineyards of this extensive estate. We sat outdoors and enjoyed the view, the meal and a sampling of their wines. Our charcuterie platter was a perfect "picnic" meal. Do call ahead for a reservation.
