We had a lovely time at Nitida and enjoyed a fantastic lunch at the Tables Restaurant with the enclosed playground. While we were sipping on our cocktails, the kids were running around and exploring the jungle gym. The food was delicious and they do have a kiddies menu on offer. After the lunch, we headed up the hill to the Wine Tasting Cellar to do a fun tasting of four different wines. We also spotted a kiddies tasting on the menu and obviously had to book it for our children. It was a colourful palate of different juices and lots of sweets! They absolutely loved it and enjoyed being a part of the tasting experience.
