A somewhat disappointing family lunch. Staff needs to be trained much better to justify the prices they charge. When we asked the waitress what seafood there was on the platter, she replied she could not answer due to the complicated Croatian names. When the platter...More

I recently went for lunch and found the service and food excellent. We were a group in a private room and had a buffet, just the right number of dishes to choose from. The food was delicious and cooked perfectly.

This 4th generation Croatian family winery is a jewel, with wines that would measure up anywhere. Excellent facilities, and access to grapes grown in several NZ areas, so wines offer an excellent sampling of the country. We particularly liked the savignon blanc.More
