Tatlers is such a great location looking over the Brockenback Range, the service was spot on as were the flavours, we enjoyed mussels (my 11 year old's favorite dish ) meatballs, squid and the pork skewers were a hit, very tender. It's our second time here and we'll be back again

Once our food started arriving this is where it stopped. The food was average at best, with one of our ordered dishes not arriving at all. Other patrons when finished were advising... More

The Hunter region is known for offering a good standard of food options, this venue falls well short of the mark. Our lunch visit at Tatlers Tapas was disappointing. The menu reads well and offers what appears to be a good variety. That's where the good news stops. Our group ordered a number of Tapas selections, which we asked to... More

Very nice lunch. We were curious about the caramalised vinegar and sauces for sale. The chef bought out a sample plate we bought the brown sugar balsamic vinegar. My hubby loves the beer on tap. We enjoyed the Scallops, Salmon and crab rolade, stuffed mushrooms and Garlic prawns. Very nice meal and outlook.
