The menu has lots to choose from, we love the calamari, it is a lovely relaxed way to do lunch looking over the vines. Leave room for dessert!

We have eaten here before, probably a few years ago. We had high expectations from our previous visit. Wasn't a busy night, only a two staff on at 7.15pm. Waited to be seated after a slight wait. Our waiter Arnie did a great job trying to accommodate our requests. The first few tapas dishes hit the mark. Oysters & seared... More

We were offered either bubbles or... More

This is a wonderful restaurant. The Australian style tapas is beautifully cooked and presented and the selection is great. Eating dinner as the light fades on the verandah looking out over the vineyard is delightful. Highly recommend this restaurant.

The location is amazing, we had lunch on the veranda, ordered the tapas tower ( cost $90. ) the taste is just average I don't think it's worth $90.00 . The service wasn't great , won't coming back again.

Fantastic location set in a working vineyard in the Hunter. The tapas was great and it surprised me that the restaurant was so quiet One criticism would be the hat the beef dish was not as tender as it could have been but everything else was worth revisiting in my view The verandah has fabulous views and I suspect lunch...

Sat on the verandah with friends visiting from the U.K., it was lovely with kangaroos to watch, it was a very beautiful setting. Food was good with huge servings, could not fit in dessert. Waitress very pleasant and helpful.

First time at the restaurant and was very pleased with the table booked which had a great view of the vineyard. Thanks to Lauren for arranging. She was lovely. The Malibu dessert was just amazing. Please try :)
