Great food - amazing staff - with scenic views from the open deck restaurant. Highly recommended - the staff are really engaging without being intrusive!

Nice setting, reasonable priced and food was really good. The lamb was filling and awesome, chicken was ok. The haloumi was amazing and the squid was good. Wine was fantastic and the option to have matching wine a good idea. Delivered a great experience overall

My partner and I thoroughly enjoyed our experience at Ridgeview restaurant and winery. As a young couple, we began by completing some wine tasting and having a stroll through the beautiful vineyards - a perfect start. We then had lunch at the restaurant, which was a real treat.

Highly recommend this place when in the Hunter Valley. Delicious meal, lovely wine and great service. Particularly loved the Haloumi! We came at dinner but would come for lunch next time to make the most of the gorgeous views.

Enjoyed a wonderful lunch in beautiful location. The four course mezzo feast was exactly that a feast, each dish was beautifully prepared and delicious, the Grilled Haloumi with caramelised pears and pistachios alone was worth the trip. Will definitely be returning.

Stayed in one of the cottages, loved escaping the rat race and then felt very pampered whilst enjoying a delicious meal, served by the lovely Kelly and Lisa. Could not fault the service! Would highly recommend.
