Only had wine tasting here, but that was very personal and pleasant (and cheap!). Nice selection of wines, and good helpful conversation during.

We visited the restaurant and began with the wine tasting. 5 wines tasted for $5. We then went on to have a great lunch at the same time which was excellent. The restaurant itself was great in the winter sunshine. Recommend.

Dropped in for lunch and a taste of the wines. Two main courses, fish with gazpacho and mussels with prawns. the food was absolutely delicious as was the Italian mess. Difficult to improve on this. The wine was not bad! And a delightful waitress.
