The moment you enter the sleek, timber-floored bistro, Mary Jane, host and co-owner of this mountain gem, instantly makes you feel at home. You may be miles away from the hustle and bustle, but the clever menu easily holds its own with its big city cousins and is teeming with fresh seasonal produce. Pricing is set for two or three courses and bookings are essential. Before settling down to dine, you may like to accept the offer of a pre-dinner drink in the art gallery upstairs while you browse the artwork available for sale.
