We visited Tatler Tapas for lunch and could not fault it. The tapas plates are a little larger than regular tapas so we ordered 5 dishes between 4 adults and it was plenty. The restaurant has a lovely leafy outlook over a pond and paddocks and you can sit inside or outside. Every dish was absolutely delicious and the service... More

An outstanding surprise! We had the stuffed Zucchini Flowers, The Salmon & Crab Pate, the Cutlets and a Rocket & Wallnut Salad. The food was superb and the table service was equally appreciated. Highly recommended & we can't wait to go back and try more on the menu!

Never have I ever experienced what I experienced at Tatler Tapas. An elderly lady chef yelled at me because I asked the waiter to take my drink away because a fly had flown into it. The chef literally walked out of the kitchen and and said "We're in the country, I cant be making new drinks every time a fly... More

Today I ate some of the most exquisitely prepared and cooked seafood. I ate the best scallops I've ever had. Also was served the most amazing warm large mushroom with feta - what a taste sensation If you are in the Hunter Valley, Tatler is a must.

Went for lunch at TATLER in Lovedale for the first time, 'I LOVE IT!'. Love the atmosphere at the restaurant. We had garlic chilli prawns and Chorizo sausage rolls with homemade tomato chutney. I put some photos on my IG already;-) Not only they looked awesome, but also they were very yummy, the latter dish is highly recommended. Staff are... More

We were that impressed, we also booked for dinner. Once again, we weren't disappointed. Everything so tasty & portion sizes were big! Great value for money. Don't think many people know about brunch... More

Ate here for a lazy Saturday lunch. Food was great, atmosphere and service was also great. Were a couple of large family gatherings with kids running around outside - it was a perfect venue for a get together.

Took my partner out to Tatler's for dinner. Met at the door straight away with such a warm welcome, seated in a restaurant that looked and felt amazing. Drinks brought straight out, both absolutely amazing and served perfectly. We had the Gnocchi, Feta Mushrooms, Cheriso Sausage Rolls, Tomato Meatballs & Lamb Souvlaki.. All I can say about every dish is... More

We came to tatler last minute, you would usually need to book but luckily we got a table. The wines at the celler door were very nice. We enjoyed a beautiful lunch whilst sitting outside in the sun. The waiter welcomed us with a smile and was very helpful. Each meal we ordered was really nice mixed in with the... More
