Fodor's Expert Review Mudbrick Vineyard and Restaurant
This is a good place to try wines that never make it to the mainland. The vineyard produces a small portfolio of whites and reds and serves them along with those of other tiny producers. Because Bordeaux varieties predominate on the island, the food emphasis is on red meat; particular favorites are the rack of lamb and Black Angus eye fillet. The front terrace is the best spot to take in the harbor views. Mudbrick is open for lunch and dinner daily, year-round, and many people like to arrive by helicopter. It's a popular spot for weddings so it pays to ring before heading there.
