Enzo warmly welcomes you to our charming sandstone restaurant. . . As the story goes, 'enzo' have been established since 1996, yes one of the original cafes in wine country pokolbin! When there were dirt roads 'n stuff! We are historically known for our alfresco dining and 7 days trade throughout our years! And now proud to extend that with introducing Friday and Saturday dinners - that's how much we love what we do! Over the years this once upon a time homestead, home to the Irelands, has expanded and evolved and become home to enzo. Original fittings of the kitchen areas and fireplace still remain untouched. Hand cut sandstone, laid by hand, and the hardwood beams from the wharf of sydney harbour, create the lived-in feel that people return for. We welcome you to our home of dining, celebrating and good times, and ask you to continue to share with us. Enjoy!

Firstly, they serve Campos. Which means you can't go wrong for coffee here. Turns out everything else is equally good: food, drinks, service, and not bad on price either.

Lucky enough for us, it was a sunny, crisp winter morning for our visit. On arrival, we were told they didn't have a table free for another 45mins, but when we said we'd sit and read the paper while we waited, a table was then available immediately. Delighted to get a table, we basked in the sun, read the papers... More

Consistently the best coffee I've found in the Hunter. Every time we visit Pokolbin we go here for breakfast, and for afternoon antipasto platters. Bookings are a good idea for lunch on the weekends. Lovely old building with an open fire in winter. Lots of outdoor seating. Staff have been consistently friendly over the years. Highly recommended

For the price we paid we expected the food to taste so much better than it did. The food was borderline cold when it arrived and was quite average in comparison to what other places are serving in the hunter valley. We wont be back. Sorry guys for the poor review, but this was our experience.

Enzo's is lovely historical cafe style location, where the atmosphere immediately oozes. The cafe is booked solid each weekend, so booking your lunch or dinner is essential here. But we can understand why, as the food is beautiful and varied, for both lunch or dinner and you can either sit inside our outside which ever suits. You can also come... More

Quality has slipped from 3 years ago, menu is looking sad but gardens are well kept. Could improve overall.

Clearly there has been some type of change with management or staff. The quality of food has improved & the atmosphere has also changed... for the better! We thoroughly enjoyed our lunch & would recommend Enzo to anyone.

Definitely the tastiest prawn linguine in the country. Enough said. Is worth a 2 hour drive each way just to eat it.
