“Great food - Heavier food than I remember”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012

It is interesting to return to Amisfield. It had been too long since I last had a meal here. Love the Fume Blanc wine. A great new addition to the wine list. The food and service were really good though more casual than I remember on previous occasions. The food was outstanding though I have to admit I felt unpleasantly full rather than pleasantly replete on this occasion. Lots of starch and heavier cuts of meat, though the flavours were as usual sensational.

“Friend's 50th B-day Lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012

This place is amazing. We chose the option "Trust the Chef" and the food was delicious consisting of a 5-course lunch. All the dishes were extremely yummy and the Pinot Noir was also great. The whole atmosphere of the place was unique and we had a great time sitting outside. I would definitely recommend asking for the "Noble" Sticky dessert wine as it was one of the high lights of the meal.

We came for friday lunch and had a fantastic time! We had the 'trust the chef' menu which was brilliant and exceptional value for money. The staff were lovely and friendly and the restaurant itself is just a beautiful place to be. Excellent overall

“Fantastic food,wine, service & scenery”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012

We visited Amisfiled for a weekend lunch. Opted fot the "Trust the Chef" tasting menu with a glass of the winery's own Pinot noir.
It was a great experience on all fronts.

Only suggetion would be to avoid being seated at the rear of the restaurant near the kitchen. There was a constant procession of busy wait staff and a constant background of swinging doors to kitchen opening and closing. On the positive side one did get to sneak a peek at a variety of food leaving on route to diners!

A must try - highly recommended
