This restaurant and the meal were both spectacular primarily as a result of the efforts of the team that cared for us. Each dish was delivered with pride, perfect presentation and an explanation. We went out for a quiet celebration and we could not have had a better evening of unrushed quality dining.

Pricey but each offering from cocktail to after dessert treat is innovative, surprising and tasty. Only caveat is the plant based menu is not actually vegan, they use dairy and honey.

After reading all the reviews I was very excited to dine here. Unfortunately we were all a bit disappointed. Out of the 5 courses, there was only one which was a standout (the main meat dish) and we all agreed it would have been nice if it was a slightly larger serve.


I found the mark up on the Hunter Valley wines we ordered to be ridiculous given we were in the region (we are talking around a 3 x mark up which I think is way too much).


For the cost, I would not recommend. It was good but not great and I have had much better meals elsewhere in the Hunter for a fraction of the price.

Fantastic and creative food. Great service and simply wonderful service. This is how fine dining should be done - with a smile. Staff so kindly helped me out because I had forgotten to bring candles to celebrate my father's birthday. They brought out a chocolate plate after dessert with four beautifully made chocolates with Happy Birthday written on a plate.


I'm most grateful that you made our time in the Hunter so very special. I will definitely be coming back.


Heartfelt thanks again!
