“Tantalizing, relaxing, a wonderful experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013 via mobile

My partner and I went here for a beautiful romantic dinner for two. On arrival we were greeted by the friendly wait staff. We were made to feel important and extremely special like we were the only people there, yet the restaurant was full. We had the most amazing and creamy iced coffee we have ever had. Just the right amount of a coffee hit. Entrée arrived, bruschetta. I have had a lot of bruschetta in my time but this topped the lot. Fresh, exciting, not over powering and the flavours exploded in my mouth. Ridge-view chef has now made it hard for me to enjoy Bruschetta anywhere else! The mains for me was barramundi on chat potatoes. The barramundi fell apart in my mouth and was cooked to perfection. I didn't have room for desert but what I seen on the menu look very enticing and catered to every taste you could have. Presentation of the food was immaculate. The view was breath taking with a gentle breeze blowing softly over us as we ate our meal and talked. I will definitely be going to back and i think next time I will stay in the quiet and secluded villas. Its well worth the trip. You wont regret it. Its an asset to the Hunter Valley. Well done Ridgeview, to your location, atmosphere, beautiful staff and food well worth talking about.

“5 star...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013

Took my partner there for a romantic evening. Atmosphere was perfect, relaxed and the view stunning. Service was prompt but not overdone. Food was exceptional and presented beautifully. Could not fault this restaurant at all. A wonderful hunter experience.

“4 course lunch-excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013

we booked a 4 course lunch here as part of a wine tour for our family of 10.
The food was amazing,different and beautifully presented and good value.The service was great.Each course included matching wine which was plentiful-not the usual measured sip carefully poured for you.

“Lovely views friendly service great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2012

If you visit the cellar door first you will be greeted by Justin very friendly and full of helpful information
The restaurant is beautifully presented and a nice day you sit on the deck and enjoy the view of the vines
We have dined at Ridgeview twice and both times have been delighted with the quality of the food and the service
Highly recommend it , Also the fact that it is open all day Saturday & Sunday is very very handy
