Best coffee and scones

We had another excellent experience at Tatlers this week. This wonderfull eating house is a short drive from the Pokolbin area and is well worth the drive as you are there in minutes. We arrived at 10am and had coffee and freshly baked scones with jam and cream. The coffee is the best we have had... read more

Nestled within the beautiful rolling hills and pastures of the Hunter, Tatler offers a perfect location to kick back and enjoy great wines and really interesting tapas creations whilst enjoying the serenity of the vista. I really enjoy good food and wine and a must have is the ambience a restaurant has to offer. This ticks all the boxes. Our... More

Lovely setting with great views, a warm and inviting dinning area with friendly service. The menu is small but all meals were prepared with great attention to detail. Very enjoyable experience.

With a view of the Tatler winery as a backdrop, the setting could not be more serene. Friendly staff have a smile on their dial, and make you feel at home. Not rushed at all, and all meals {which are fantastic by the way), are brought to you in a time efficient and ordered manner. Fantastic food, great wines, and... More

We had lunch with friends this week - 5 adults and 3 kids. The staff were very attentive and accommodating with the kids and the tapas were the best I've had! Also excellent value for money. We went to another restaurant for lunch today in the HV that served tapas and they simply did not compete. Tatler is definitely worth... More

Better than Barcelona - must visit restaurant with the best food, wine and the friendliest service. You should also taste the wines at the bar and be entertained by the manager.

Tatler Tapas Cafe is a wonderful eating house . This cafe has been consistently fantastic for many years. The food is delicious and the service is excellent...not to mention the good wines. The chef delivers the freshest food with great taste always. Its a favourite spot.

We were a party of six including two young children, visiting for the third time. There is always a good menu choice and the chilli garlic prawns were a real success. The serving of sourdough bread (with nice warm olives) could be a bit more generous and the chorizo sausage rolls perhaps need a little more improvement. However the "best... More
