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!

Lovely meal with affordable prices

Had a lovely meal with a girlfriend yesterday. Menu was quite affordable for being in the vineyards. Was quite a hot day and was very busy, so we had to sit outside under the umbrellas but it wasn't to bad. Would definitely go back.

That was the look at the top of my coffee before I had a sip-a way to remember that the Hunter isn't only about the wine!

My wife and I have brunched at Enzos on a few occasions and enjoyed it each time. Set in a cluster of buildings Enzos offers both internal and external seating with the latter under umbrellas looking out onto a grassed central 'courtyard'. The food was good as was the service and the prices reasonable. Worth a visit.

We have always adored the food here. The pasta and risotto are gorgeous. And the cottage dining room is charming. Especially in winter. But the wait staff are very hit and miss. They seem to go through a lot of different staff. Been hundreds of times and mostly had good service. But on the last visit, the waitress was so... More

Great breakfast menu with large portions. Good quality coffee. Only downside was we waited over an hour for our breakfast from ordering. We weren't in a rush and we enjoyed our breakfast but not good if you don't have plenty of time.

The food was good but unfortunately the customer service and staff were lacking. It was quite uncomfortable to be amongst what seemed to be very sour attitude from certain members of the waitstaff towards lower levels. The stress from these workers sadly filtered directly to our table I suggest to management to sort out the team as it is not... More

We had be recommended Cafe Enzo because we wanted a good coffee. We were not disappointed. The coffee was perfect and the cheese/ham platter was well presented and very tasty. The service was well balanced and it's in a beautiful environment

We arrived Saturday 9am to find Cafe Enzo was fully booked, not surprisingly as it is a delightful garden setting, a rustic looking building with stone walls and quirky touches of interest to delight everyone - including a small croquet lawn to amuse the little ones. So we booked for early Sunday morning and were delighted the weather was perfect... More

Our 2nd visit to Enzo's and our lunch was every bit as wonderful as the first time. The girls were lovely and enjoyed the relaxing atmosphere. We commented that it was the best meal we have had in a while. Recommend the lamb and crispy potatoes.

I stopped in for breakfast at about 10.15 this morning. I was greeted straight away at the door, invited to sit where I liked and a menu and some water was brought over promptly. I ordered the 'Enzo Benedict' with a side of mushrooms and a piccolo. The piccolo was simply divine. It tasted rich and was complimented with beautiful... More
