Amazing conifers in this lovely garden even in winter. Climb to the top of the tower, the view is worth it.

Ate here today, had a Ruben and was a little disappointed that it came out in a roll smaller than my fist as the taste was excellent. Wife had a pizza which was perfectly sized for one. Nice atmosphere.

The views are lovely. Just a short drive around the gardens and you can see the local flora and fauna.
