“Fabulous Food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 26, 2013

Wow! I was impressed. The squid was seriously melt-in-the-mouth - the tenderest squid I've ever eaten with a fabulous salad of garden fresh herbs with chili and kaffir lime - delicious. The absolute bomb for me was the Oxtail Ravioli - amazing! We had a party of 8 who all equally enjoyed their starters and mains. Well done chef! Seriously good food.

“very nice food for a reasonable price”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2013

The hunter valley is full of good restaurants and great wines but most of them are terribly expensive. Emma's is one of the few that offers really nice food, very nice location, friendly service and all for a very reasonable price. We enjoyed the lunch we had and will be coming back.

The garden is so amazing. Tasty fresh food, especially the Moroccan chicken. Friendly staff.
Negative: limited lunch menu and a bit pricey.

“If you want to eat in Lovedale, eat here !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 28, 2013

This was the most enjoyable lunches we have had in a long time. Starting with the phone manner when we booked at the last minute to the greeting by the owner, Freidy when we arrived we were seated outside on a great day and offered drinks, bread and pleasant conversation.
The Hungerian goulasch was superb as was the spinach and cheese tart and all rounded off with a good coffee.
Thanks Freidy, we'll be back.

“Amazing steak and friendly sevice”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 31, 2013

We had a lunch there our last day in the Hunter Valley and it was delicious. This steak was quality, fresh and whole meal was prepared with imagination. In addition, in summer you can enjoy their beautiful garden and the silent of a countryside.
