This was a difficult review to write. I really wanted to love this place after looking at the other reviews, and the food was indeed top-notch. But that was where it ended.
There were. So. Many. Flies. I mean literally 5-10 flies constantly hovering everywhere, getting in the food, getting in the wine glasses, landing on our heads and noses and hands and just about everything. We were told that it was because they came in when people opened the doors; we were new to the Granite Belt on that day, so we thought it was just a regional thing and nothing could be done about it. However, we later visited several other wineries and outdoor cafes around the area and did not encounter this issue in any of them, even when we were sitting outside. One fly here and there maybe, but not the constant assault that we received here.
This made it really, really difficult to enjoy our food, and it was a fairly pricey meal for the experience. We came fully intending to order dessert, but as soon as we were done with our mains we just wanted to leave.
I hope management is able to do something about the problem, because it's a pity the food is marred by not being able to enjoy it without your partner taking on the full-time job of swatting flies so you can finally eat in peace (true story). See less
