“Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013

Newcastle hidden gem! Fantastic food. We held my 40th there. While the food is predominately 'meat eaters paradise' we had a vegetarian requirement. The Vegi dishes were as great as the normal menu. Fantastic service.

“A family experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

Having eaten here for Friday lunch a number of times as a couple and also with grandson we have always had a great experience.

This visit was with a family unit of six in total but we arrived later than usual at about 1.45pm. The service and atmosphere as always were great. The only drawback with the food was the meats tended to be overcooked with the beef very well done. Although we put this down to our late arrival it should not happen. By the way, the spiced potatoes are still to die for!

Next time we go, and we will, we'll be there at midday.

“Delightful food, exceptional service - bring your appetite!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2013

We have dined at this restaurant on a number of occasion and for good reason! The staff are always friendly, polite and very informative about the menu. Firstly, the menu is a feast of Brazilian Barbequed meats, called a Churrasco feast. There are nine courses to this feast, and each different cooked meat is presented to each person on BBQ sword. If you are lucky enough to be seated near the kitchen, you will be able to see the way the meat is cook. The meat is always cooked perfectly and tastes devine!!

Word of warning, though, pace yourself! Don't go all out on the tapas, bread or the potatoes. They all taste amazingly good, but you will be disappointed if you can't taste the amazing selection of meat that it bought to your plate. This is a great place for a social group, family reunion, as you take a couple of hours to really enjoy this menu.

The ambiance of the restaurant is lovely. Atmospheric and whether you are a couple or a group, you feel like you are the only ones in the restaurant.

Lastly, the staff are truly an asset to this restaurant. They explain each meat that is presented, and how it is cooked. The service is impeccable, just like the food.

We struggle to fit dessert in, but it just wouldn't be perfect without that final touch. This is dining at it's richest. Decadent and delightful. It's definitely for special occasions but I find myself looking for the next special occasion to go back! I would consider this one of the most unique dining experiences within the whole Hunter Valley/Newcastle region.

Fantastic Brazillian experience with the Churrasco menu at Figtree. The excellent food, wine and service made our 25th Wedding Anniversary an unforgettable night. I would highly recommend this venue.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2013

i am always critical about restaurant service and experience not to mention the food,
this restaurant gets 10/10 from me and have been on numerous occasions , we have been with friends and they have remarked how good it is and value is exceptional.
the atmosphere is good ,seats are comfortable and lots of space between tables .
the food is great , we usually get the set menue where they just keep bringing food out to the table .should go at least once .
