First time there. The food was excellent! The service was exemplary and the view amazing. It was the first time I tried a fruit wine…Seduction…and I was very impressed. So impressed I bought a bottle. We will definitely go again. Thank you for an amazing experience.

L-O-V-E The Northern Estates Winery. Excellent service, food never disappoints, views are spectacular. Appreciated that the "background music" was "in the background, this time. Previous visit, that was an issue. If I have any less than glowing comments, it regards parking. The parking lot beside the restaurant is very small and the overflow parking is across a busy road that has a lot of traffic with no traffic lights or designated crossing area. I am hoping that is a work in progress.
