Ottimo per uno spuntino prima delle 17. Hanno anche un ristorante che pero non abbiamo provato ma ci hanno accolto con un piatto di formaggi e vini ottimiGreat for a snack before 17. They also have a restaurant but we didn't but we were greeted with a plate of cheeses and winesshow original
Wine was reasonably priced and delicious. Restaurant would make a nice fancy meal out. Tasting was $5 but included a souvenir crystal glass. Staff is friendly and knowledgeable, finding us a wine we enjoyed at our price point.
We had a very good lunch at The Mission in April and the service was thoughtful and efficient. We sat in the lovely garden . Very relaxing. I forgot my glasses and they were returned by post to me immediately by helpful staff.
Great location and fantastic food, staff are very good too. We were seated in the 'red room', which was a let down as its by far the most plain and boring room in the building. It didn't ruin the meal, but I would suggest requesting a better spot
Top notch service. We accidentally broke a glass the waitress handled the situation very professionally. Food was exceptional would highly recommend here for a great dinning experience!
Enjoyed a glass of wine with great company in a beautiful setting.
