About the restaurant Margan Restaurant Hunter Valley

Go for Broke

Regular visitors to the Hunter know to make a beeline to Margan’s in Broke for great wines paired with great food. Margan Restaurant has quickly become a Hunter institution known for its commitment to ‘estate grown, estate made’ produce. They craft their menus around the seasonal harvest from the one-acre kitchen garden and orchard – they also have their own olive trees, free-range chickens for farm-fresh eggs, honey and lambs. At Margan, it’s all about minimising the carbon footprint so that the land remains viable for generations to come (they are proud to be the first Hunter Valley restaurant & winery certified for their environmental sustainability initiatives). And of course, the food and award-winning wines by Andrew Margan. In fact the restaurant is awash with awards including 5 Star Winery James Halliday Wine Companion 2009 – 2014, Sustainable Restaurant of the Year in the SMH Good Food Guide 2012, and the 14 Top Ten Regional NSW Restaurants in the Gourmet Traveller Guide in 2013 and 2014. The menu changes regularly but you might find such local delights as dry-aged pasture fed Wagyu with bone marrow, smoked potato and heirloom carrots (paired with a Margan Shiraz), Jerusalem artichoke with gruyere, Margan hen’s egg, pickled celery, walnut (try it with a pinot gris) or local squab with black pudding, onion, apple and yakon (recommended with a Margan White Label Barbera). And let’s not forget the to-die-for desserts which could feature a honeycomb parfait with Holy Goat mousse, pomegranate and Chai doughnuts.

Best dish: Seared venison with beetroot and gin, endive and horseradish

Absolutely amazing. Great service, lovely atmosphere and most importantly, amazing food. Every dish was perfectly balanced and well presented. The flavours were fresh and vibrant, and I loved that the produce was either from Margan itself, or somewhere local. For the entrees, we had the kingfish ceviche and the pork belly, crackling and carrot (both amazing). The mains has the most perfect quenelles of mashed potato! The bread and butter was also a winner. The desserts were also delicious, especially the signature Margan honey dessert, which was like a milk parfait with macadamias. The caramelised fig dessert also came with the most amazing burnt milk ice cream. I would definitely come back if I’m ever in the Hunter region!

Best meal in the hunter this trip! Service was fantastic from tasting wines through to lunch. The meal - sashimi, pork belly, chicken and beef cheeks was faultless. Probably the best beef cheeks I’ve ever had. Cannot wait to return.

I would have rated this place higher than 6/10 though was taken aback by the fact that when we chose the Tasting Menu, we couldn’t swap a dish with another on the a la carte because my wife wasn’t keen on the ingredients of one dish on the Tasting Menu. We were happy to pay extra for the swap but politely denied the flexibility.

Most enjoyable way to finish a weekend at the Hunter Valley. Food is first class and Abby was a delightful waitress. We have been coming for years and it never disappoints.

It was a little cold in the restaurant. The food was lovely but not quite as tasty as we were expecting.
We definitely enjoyed it though.

Beautiful food and wine, service great ..only one negative is one of my real pet peeves: flys inside and around the food/ dining area. Doors to outside left open obviously for service inside and outside but when I kill one fly on the window and four to five others buzzing around inside it annoys me...almost to the point of walking out. Please manage this better.

Our hostess was very knowledgeable on the menu and where / how the food came to be at our table, her personable nature made the meal even more special because of this. Wonderful place- highly recommendable.
