I booked this online before we arrived in Martinborough. Well worth thinking ahead. We enjoyed great service even though they were quite busy. I had the beetroot salad entree which was light and delicious followed by the duck. I love to eat duck when I’m out and tonight’s version didn’t disappoint. Perfectly cooked. The other half had the beef cheeks entree which was also delicious. He had the fillet steak to follow, also enjoyed. Highly recommend this place even if paying big city prices in a little village!

For such a small town one does not expect to have such a wonderful meal.
The staff were very friendly & welcoming, the service was prompt & presentation was beautiful.
But the best part was in the meal itself exceptional!!

This is a great spot to eat in Martinborough village. The food is delicious and the staff really helpful. I would recommend booking ahead as it is quite small and gets busy - well worth a visit - as is clear by the fact we keep coming back! The duck and the chocolate dessert are both wonderful in every way!

It was a busy night but the service was attentive and just excellent. The entrees were interesting especially the prawns. The mains were great and the duck went down well. The wine list was extensive, strongly local and very good recommendations.
In all an excellent relaxed evening.
