Called in for lunch with a group of friends. Had a great time. Food was really good, wine was excellent. Wait staff were really friendly. Was a great way to spend a cold and wet afternoon.

Many good resturants in the Hunter Valley, but none better for food and service. Intriguing tastes and favors highlight this resturant. Reasonable prices and impeccable service. We would come back again.

Our party of four adults had a fabulous evening meal here. We each had a main while only the two men in the group had room for dessert. The meal was impeccably presented and offered great value for money in an inviting environment.

Great choice on the menu and good choice of wines either by glass or bottle. The staff is very helpful and friendly and in the winter (if you wish) you can sit by the open central fire.

This ultra-popular restaurant (especially with locals who love a long lunch here) serves appetising Mediterranean meals in a relaxed, inviting space. It has a great outdoor courtyard, surrounded by wisteria, with tables shaded by large umbrellas and inside there’s a huge open fireplace in the centre of the room, surrounded by crisp, white-clothed tables and indoor gardens. Owner/chef Andy Wright offers a seasonal menu using the best Australian produce with regulars returning for popular á la carte dishes like pan-fried barramundi and eight-hour slow-braised Milly Hill lamb or the signature dish – whole suckling pig roast (48 hours’ notice required).
