It has become our tradition to head to the Winery every Christmas Eve. The atmosphere certainly did not change, with its lively friendly service and beautiful lush decor. You can check out our 2010 visit, here.
|Rose Wine Sangria; Strawberry & lemon wedges, Creme de Fraise (strawberry), Bianco Italian Vermouth & lemonade|
The sangria was bittersweet and delicious. It was highly appropriate for matching with the rose filled decor and garden party atmosphere.
Sangria is a wise choice when dining at the Winery, because it complements most meals and adds to the mood of the place.
|Hand cut chips|
I realised they changed the menu because last years fries were actually THIN. Being the queen of chips, i normally wolf down any chips but i do have a preference for thin crispy fries..which i missed.
|Prawn & Avocado boats w/ Thousand Island Dressing|
The mooshy texture of the avocado and squishy texture of the prawns, were strangely, quite harmonious. I thought the lettuce was TOO bitter and ruined it for me but everything else was tasty.
I was slightly disappointed in the service, because it took a good 15-20 mins after Alvina's dish for mine to come out, so I was completely ravenous and dug straight in, forgetting to take a photo! I ordered the spaghetti bolognese, which was pleasant but not outstanding. Again, the Winery is more appropriate for the atmosphere and drinks rather than actual meals.
Just beautiful, definitely suits any festive occasion and it was inspired by the garden from “Fantastic mr fox”.
|Double choc brownie w/ fairy floss and ice cream|
A nice finish to the meal, i enjoyed the soft fairy floss over the rich chocolate brownie.
We ordered this last year, and having had a good impression, decided to get it again. It was a good choice the second time also.
From a year back the area of Kings Cross did not change one bit and we shall return next christmas.
