Winery restaurants tend to attract two types: the best-behaviour special occasion crowd and the "we've just drunk our way around seven cellar doors" brigade. How to reconcile these strange bedfellows? By serving playful, visually-exciting and pristine food that's a pleasure to eat. An entrée of smoked duck ham with comforting spices is artfully plated with berries and dollops of almond cream, while a silky cylinder of ocean trout is enriched with spanner crab, nori and Thai basil. The staff are exceptionally warm, especially when you consider they likely have to deal with regular bucks' and hens' groups, but it's the sweet stuff that really wows you. The palate-cleansers, like a grape and golden raisin granita, are such joyful bursts of freshness that you could be fooled into thinking you don't need dessert. You're wrong. There'd be a riot if they ever nixed their signature Muse Coconut - a hedonistic take on a Bounty bar.
