Oliver sure knows how to look after guests, simply brilliant!

This was one of the best wine tasting experiences we had in McLaren Vale. Our host Oliver expertly guided us through their range of exceptional red wines, and his knowledge of viticulture on a global basis is impressive. His enthusiasm for their wines is catching and provided us with a very memorable experience.

From the moment we walked into the restaurant, we were impressed by the presence of Oliver, the Maître d and Sommelier. His professionalism was of an exceptionally high standard. His suggestions [for] wine and food were spot on.. Thanks Oliver and whoever hired Oliver..

We chose a Grenache Rose and the charming and very talented Maître d’ and Sommelier Oliver supplemented it with a couple of other perfect choices. Best dining experience for a while.

Hi Oliver,
May I take this opportunity to congratulate you on an excellent training session. Your knowledge and passion were evident and gratefully received by myself and the team. Well done.
I look forward to the next barista training session.

Oliver is the benchmark you want in any hospitality business. Oliver sets the bar for food and beverage service at a level that makes the outlet stand head and shoulders above the rest. He is tireless in his positive manner and impeccable etiquette in managing staff and dealing with customers alike. I learned many things from Oliver, I am still in awe as to how he eagerly encourages and facilitates people’s personal and business success in the industry.
