Kick back al fresco under the vine-covered pergola in our central courtyard.

Train your palate with expert guidance in our wine cellar with the in-house Sommelier. Tuck into simple, robust dishes prepared with fresh, local, seasonal ingredients in our trademark bistro. Select your favourite cigar from the humidor and enjoy a smoke under the stars.
