My husband and I are foodies and have eaten at many of the fine dining restaurants in the Hunter Valley and yesterday evening we enjoyed an excellent meal at Hunters Quarter. Food was very flavoursome, the service excellent and the view amazing. We really enjoyed the crab dumplings and the poached bug tail. The shared passionfruit soufflé we had was to die for. Nice selection of local wines at a reasonable price. Overall a wonderful experience and definately one of the best in the Hunter Valley..

Can we say it is always nice to hear from passionate food lovers and from your choice of menu, you selected some of our most popular dishes. Chef's dumplings are very well sought after amongst a lot of the local Vignerons (wine makers). We do change our menu seasonally, so we hope to see you again throughout the year.

If you're searching for a divine lunch place in the middle of a day of wine tasting, look no further. The views are spectacular and the lunch options are as well. Reasonably priced and well worth your time.

Food was excellent, all three courses (though I had to take my desert home). Staff were friendly & gave great service.
