Description: 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).

New to Lovedale, we had yet to try this restaurant. We took our daughter and son-in-law on Saturday and had the best fish dish I have had since living up here. I realise how much we have missed out on. Brilliant service. Highly recommend for a special occasion.

Our small group was on a Hunter Valley Wine Tour and stopped here for a gourmet lunch. Several people ordered a pork dish which was very hearty and filling. I ordered the spinach salad served up with roasted sweet potatoes, chopped avocados, pine nuts and a vinagarette dressing. I loved it. All of our meals were accompanied by a glass of wine or beverage of your choosing.

This place was busy. Service was good and the food was thoroughly enjoyed.

Had a brilliant evening at Cellar Restaurant. We both had the 8hr cooked Lamb Shoulder which melted in your mouth amd washed down with a terrific Shiraz Voigner. Wait staff were very nice and service fantastic.

We were simply disappointed, the food was not tasty, the staff nice, not worth the effort and the price
