Bistro Molines

Overblown roses surrounding the property and spilling out of vases, a wisteria covered courtyard and a dining room with French provincial touches; what could be more romantic? Add the semi-private sunroom and wrap around verandas with new floor to ceiling concertina glass doors and it doesn’t get much better.Choose very European style long tables overlooking the vineyard for a sit down dinner for up to 90 guests, or cocktail style for 90-130 guests. Robert and his team can create the perfect menu for you while Sally Molines and wedding co-ordinator Tani Carr will make sure your wedding day is one you will never forget.
