From the impressive new walkway into the restaurant… and the personal welcome back from Oliver… we had another wonderful evening… Really pleasant service from Oliver… who as usual could share everything there was to know about the food and wine.

The food is coupled with a delightful setting… and the charm and expert service provided by Oliver… really add to the occasion. I should also mention the wines… expertly paired with the food.

Fantastic wine tasting experience at Sherrah Wines. The sommelier, Oliver, is very knowledgeable and accomodating of wine novices. We left the cellar door with a better understanding of winemaking and a case of some new bottles to try at home. Vielen Dank Oliver, bis zum nächsten mal!

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.

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.

Andy Lawson, Manager, The Boardwalk Bendigo – November 2014

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.
