The food was amazing, open late which catered to our needs, the service excellent and a really good atmosphere with live music. Will make this a regular on our HV trips.

We were driving around the valley looking for wineries and found this campus, with several cars parked. I'm so glad we drove in and tried this restaurant. Outdoor setting is lovely, with a great view and nice cool breeze. Food is a bit pricey, entrees are around 15 to 25$, mains are from 35 to 55$. But it's so delicate... More

The ambience, wine and food was delectable - especially the pigs ear fries and beef cheek croquettes. Highly recommend the whole barramundi also. And as great as the venue and food is, the biggest delight of the night was the staff. They were professional, friendly, welcoming and knowledgable. The pace of the courses was perfectly timed and the whole evening... More

I got told that booking dinner in the Hunter was incredibly hard. Well we went and had lunch 2 doors down. My friend suggested Goldfish - so she walked in and made a booking for 7 at 6. All done - Great! We all thought - not that hard at all! We arrived at 6:10pm and sat down. The service... More

We had our work Christmas party with 30 people at the Goldfish Restaurant Polkolbin. To begin with we were squashed in like sardines with half of the table against the wall unable to freely move from their seats and one of our guests was squashed in front of a loud speaker so she had to stand up every time someone...

Our group of 6 visited Goldfish for lunch during a day of tastings. We were greeted by a very friendly waitress and seated under a gazebo covered in vines with a beautiful view of vines and hills. Our next waitress was not as pleasant and seemed quite disinterested. $98 for 2 jugs, (8 glasses) of Pimms is outrageous. The pizzas... More

"Who's next?, I don't care!" I waited and waited at the bar with no service. The bar staff were more interested in each other than the customer.

Lovely food and atmosphere with friends. We had lots of wine! The food was really nice we had pizzas and tapas and thoroughly enjoyed it. My friend forgot her handbag (and didn't notice until the next day) and the staff put it away for her, it was dark and we were outside, a lovely view, so that was really nice... More

Great cocktails and service was good. We went up to the bar and there was no wait and were greeted by 2 bartenders. Cocktails were a bit pricey but not unreasonable. Dim lighting and decor was great.

Had an early dinner here before going over to the Xmas lights. In note of this to our waiter we thought service may have been a bit quicker, but seemed to be slower. Other than that food was pretty good. Really enjoyed most of it from entree to dessert. Apple mint juice mocktail was sickly sweet and not anything like... More
