I have now been to both the restaurant for dinner and tasting room for lunch. Enjoyed the lamb at dinner and the tart (pizza) at linch. Very good but frqankly for the price I was expecting more. The service was excellent. Very pleasant experience.

I suggest you contact BRABO. I do not have that answer to your question. I was just a guest. However, their food and service was AMAZING when I was there.
