Fine dining but affordable! The food was wonderful and beautifully cooked! Great, attentive (but not too much) customer service! Lovely atmosphere! Will definitely return!

“Wow!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2014

Can't think of a bad thing to say about our experience at the Cellar. The restaurant was only half full on a Friday night, which was a surprise but most likely due to price and weather.

Had an Entrée of Buffalo Mozzarella Salad and my partner had the scallops. Both were exceptional. For main we had a special of Lamb to share, this was very tasty and well cooked however my partner isn't a large eater and I couldn't finish it all! For Dessert she had the Crème Brulee and I had the Parfait and again both were faultless.

The staff were great all night and continuously checking on our food and making sure we had enough drinks. We left very satisfied and although we spent a bit over $200 I felt it was well worth what we received.

“Great dinnner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2014

We had a really tasty meal at the Cellar. We all enjoyed some tasty little morsels to start with. For mains, the lambs liver was good, but not amazing, while the stuffed chicken was to die for. Nice wines and very filling - we didn't have room for dessert.

“Great place for a meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2014

As locals, the cellar is our go to place. If anybody comes to stay, we take them to the cellar for a meal as we are guaranteed great service and a great meal every time. We have never been disappointed and you won't be either. Enjoy!!!

“Average Food & Service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2014

On a recent wine tour of Hunter Valley, we had lunch here and I ordered the steak. It was a big disappointment as it was very tough; the restaurant was noisy; the Shiraz served at lunch was just ok, but the chocolate cake for dessert was very good. I found the wait staff brisk and evasive--maybe it was a very busy day for them as the restaurant was very croweded. In any case, next time I'll visit another restaurant.
