Perfect location and outstanding foodIn the heart of Solvang shopping and tasting. The restaraunt's chef trained with Gordon Ramsy; my Wife is a foodie and she was floored. One of the best meals I've ever had, and the free breakfast was wonderful as well. If food and wine is what you seek, look no further.
