I have been to Bistro Molines with my partner many a times for lunch but never as a group and I must say, it's much more fun! Have always loved a this place for a romantic lunch date but it's also great for small groups and the service, view and food is spectacular as always. The menu changes seasonally so... More

Although it was exceptionally hot and the air conditioning in the restaurant was not great the food was undeniable delicious and the service was both helpful and very friendly. Since we went for lunch we decided to share a few entrees rather than have a main each. We had the leek pie with a basil hollandaise, the figs wrapped in... More

Old school service at its best. Country scenery looking over steep hilled vineyards and beautiful valleys. Food was outstanding and we have high standards. Something between modern and old fashioned heart and soul warming food but with that high end quality and produce. The wine list is seriously good and very generous prices. Some wines are less than half what... More

We had the coolest seats in the house on a VERY hot day. The food was wonderful and the service was ok. Well worth the trip.

Happened across this beautiful restaurant after a recommendation at the place we were staying. Don't be put off by the gravel road, you are going to enjoy this. Warm and friendly greeting, nice selection of daily specials and a full menu. French vibe, but not over done or pretentious at all. Mains were around $41, entree $14 to $18 Great... More

For me the best place to eat in the Hunter Valley. Great food, a friendly staff and fantastic country views. Booking is advisable.

Had a very special lunch here recently. This is the place to come for stunning views (so come for lunch), a gorgeous menu and great service. There is nothing to fault with this restaurant and we can't wait to visit here next time we are in the valley.

The staff are spot on with service and cater for your every need and never leave you waiting even if they are extremely busy. A tip for this restaurant is to make sure you book and ask for a table on the... More
