The Beltree is a simple, small and intimate restaurant. You do feel a tad exposed in the tables located towards the middle of the room, so to try and get a table around the sides.
My husband and I ate there for an anniversary dinner, on a Friday evening.
On arrival (8:30pm late sitting) the entrance is well hidden and we accidentally came in a side door. Mind you it is winter and being cold they closed all the doors. There is a fireplace which gives a beautiful ambient feel to the room and keeps the room nice and warm with winter approaching.
We were served quickly by helpful waitresses and were given complimentary bread, olive oil, olives and balsamic which was tasty.
The mains are a good size and we ordered a gnocchi Ragu and a veal dish. Both were so delicious. For dessert we had the choc pudding with pistachio and anise ice cream and a vanilla and wild berry dessert (forgot the name). Both were decadent and satisfying. We ordered two glasses of a Kurrajong red Shiraz and it was a fantastic wine. So much so that I plan to seek the Kurrajong winery out, for my next trip in the Hunter.
All in all it was good. Nothing mind blowing, but just plain old good.
I would eat there again but since there is so much to choose from in the hunter, I won't be in a rush to return.
The prices were around $60 each for a main, dessert and wine.
