We hadn't visited this restaurant for over a year and wondered why. The service is excellent, the food is consistently good, the portions are generous, the presentation is appealing, the ambiance is warm. And carpet on the floors and soft hangings on the walls went well toward dampening the noise level you often get in other modern restaurants. We could... More

Eating here the first night we were in the Hunter Valley and we picked well. Make sure you book, the place was packed to the rafters which is the first good sign and with the food being the next best sign. Couldn't fault the food or the service, staff were great and keen to suggest menu options.

My husband and I ate here tonight. Both his trout and my chicken dishes were moist and flavoursome. The desserts too were colourful and tasty. Try the moscato; it's unusual and worth your while. We found it quite difficult to find in the dark...a larger, well lit sign would make things easier.

We wanted to enjoy one of our favourite local restaurants with friends visiting from Sydney. We thoroughly enjoyed 2 courses each. The meals were larger than I remembered from previous visits . My husband loved his duck dish. Friends had steak cooked as ordered and 2 of us had the veal dish which reminded me of a delicious home cooked... More

Had been keen to visit for a while and did on this trip. All round a delicious dinner. Friendly staff and nice location. Restaurant was full and had a good vibe. Make sure you book as it gets busy.

4 of us for dinner on our first night in the Hunter.....after driving up to an 80's style converted house with no appeal at all, entering with the squeals of young children, sitting at a pine colonial table and chairs hardly set us up of our 'special' night together. I started with the ravioli and although the quality was there,... More

Extensive and interestingly mouth watering menu makes your choice difficult. Thankfully we booked early as it was a busy weekend. As always the food was delicious

Easter Friday, dinner with friends, dinner started well, calamari entree was well prepared though possibly a little small for the price. Mains was duck, again tasty but small, wait staff were friendly, though service was extremely slow between courses, so much, that in the two hours we were there only time for 2 courses. The head waitress was on the... More

7 of us for Saturday lunch. Midday booking, so maybe half of tables filled with diners. Friendly chatty waitress. Chose venue because most extensive vegetarian / vegan menu in Hunter Valley. Nothing too much trouble for couple of fussy eaters. Recommended local wines, Pepper tree verdelho was lovely. Meals were quick to arrive. Most of us chose from vegetarian menu.... More
