Fantastic romantic getaway

My wife and I stayed at Ridgeview for 2 nights to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Don't be put off by the website - we'd previously decided against staying there purely due to the website being difficult to navigate, and not showing enough detail about the villas. We took a chance, and were... read more

It's out of the way but worth the trip. Great food, and plenty of it. And although the cellar door was closed we still got to taste a couple of extra wines not on the restaurant winelist, thanks to the operations manager who looked after us for the evening. And we also bought a couple of bottles to take home... More

Some friends and I just got back from a 4 day girls weekend in the Hunter Valley. We stayed here at the beautiful Ridge View and I have absolutely nothing but praise for this hidden gem! The estate is breathtaking, located in a quieter valley about 5-10minutes from all the main big wineries which was brilliant as we felt like... More

We had a fantastic mezze platter accompanied by a delicious meal with very personal service. As it was Friday we were the only people there which was great.

I recently had the chance to get back to Ridgeview for a few days. We arranged to have our close friends join us in sharing one of the two bedroom cottages. Well priced and very comfortable, each bedroom has its own bathroom. We arrived on Sunday afternoon for the long slow Cypriot lunch. I think there were about eleven different... More

The restaurant has a pleasant outlook and the service good enough. However we were not very pleased with the meal. Entree was OK , but the meat dishes were just so tough - it was hard to eat. Both the lamb ( 2" of toughness) and the pork were well below expectations. The desert afterwards was far too sweet. So... More

As a result did not buy anything however stopped off for dinner and had an awesome experience from attentive Brad who was engaging and explained the mezze menu . We drank several bottles of the sparkler wind which was fabulous . The favourite was the haloumi. We... More

What a serene spot. So quiet and relaxing. All staff are so welcoming especially Justin. If there is anything he doesn't know about Ridgeview's range of wines, it's not worth knowing! They were picking when we visited & we enjoyed viewing this process (the very hands on owners were right amongst it!). The restaurant is excellent. Will definitely return.

This would have to be becoming one of my favourite restaurants, as a local we have been out to RidgeView and have ordered from the breakfast, lunch and dinner menus. Every dish has been outstanding, full of flavour, generously sized and presented beautifully. Chef, Donna and the rest of the kitchen staff have put together a truly amazing food journey... More
