    nice vibe, staff friendly but not overly attentive. Food over priced and arrived sporadically and just warm - was a strange but still pleasant dining experience. Wine (Sangiovese) was mmmmm.

    Super cool wine bar with a twist. The Sunday feed me meni is masterfully cooked by the resident chef on a wood fired stove in the back outdoor seating area. The food is smoky, fresh and delicious! It's great value at $50 and our new favourite thing to do for Sunday lunch.

    Great food, great wine, great vibe. Previously I’d only ever grabbed takeaway bottles but now I cannot recommend sitting out back for a bite enough. The Sunday set menu is amazing value. The smoker working our lunch really filled the courtyard with the type of warmth we’re all chasing on a late autumn afternoon.

    Choice of wines are good and having food to compliment is a good option although being smoked out by the roasting oven in the outdoor area was the only downside so indoors might be a better option next time

    The bbq menu is fantastic- the chef is brilliant. So simple yet so yum. Staff have a genuine interest in wine and are helpful. Excellent wine selection and “special pours”. Our local favourite. Our golden retriever loved it too 🤪

    It was our first visit so we didn’t know the layout. Being outside in the back section got rather noisy being undercover with two largish tables booked. Next time webwould want to be in the courtyard on a nice evening. Otherwise a very pleasant evening. Great selection of wines especially from South Australia where my two friends were from so they knew the wines and regions. We are also partial to French roses you have on your wine list. Thank you! Always great to find somewhere new. 🌸

    Came for Valentine’s Day, safe to say this year was a disappointment. Ordered Riesling and it tasted spoilt, got a Chardonnay to replace and they charge me and and just took my other wine away? Then ordered of the very limited menu, cheese (I’m vegetarian) and waiter didn’t understand what that meant and meat was all over the bread. Got 3 pickles and a few crackers. We also ordered the cured fish, waiter said how good it was and 20 minutes later came and said they actually didn’t have it tonight. All Up wine and 4 cheese platter cost $130 and we had $15 wines x 2? Not sure of the other reviews being so good but the staffs attitude and lack of service will see us going home hungry and wasted money. I did want it to be great but won’t be back and wouldn’t waste the time.
