Goldfish restaurant spacious, toilet amenities clean, great subtle lighting throughout. Food unbelievable you must try the the Belelotto Leaves with Pork Belly pieces in plum sauce , and chilli alternative. Goldfish you must offer dessert's we would of stayed longer.

Meatballs melt in your mouth, service was professional, staff new their products and were friendly.

We didn't have cocktails this time as we had Tempust TWO WINES, but when everyone asked where we had been we said Goldfish did you have the cocktails and we said no. We are going to go back and definitely have a cocktail this time.

It was a big mistake to choose that place by look. First time an a Hunter Valley, hot busy long weekend we wanted to have a break and food. We were waiting an hour to have our food arrived one by one seafood plate (the most expensive) first, Choriso( overcooked and salty with no sigh of greens next to it) 20 min after , and fries 10 min after we finished everything. Our child was 30 min waiting his fries when we felt guilty eating at least our seafood with buttered whiting (horrible, standard chips would do much better). To be honest food was not as bad, nothing special as well, but that service and waiting and asking staff to chase our order... Horrible.....

Where do I begin?
Picked the restaurant from hunter valley booklet available at resort, great marketing. Failed to deliver upon going.
Restaurant was empty, they had limited wait/bar staff so service was poor.
We ordered a tiger beer, corona and hot chips - none of which were available (although all on the menu and order taken by waiter). Menu was not explained so we over ordered. Food came out too quickly, yet drinks (once we could finally get a drink that was available) was slow. The Waiter tipped the candle over on our table, and did not come back to clean up spilled wax. We asked to take away the left over food and was given Chinese takeaway containers, but no lids were available?? When we went to pay for bill (we had to go to bar to pay as the waiter had disappeared) we tried to mention the poor service to be met with an explanation for lack of inventory availability with issues at the kings cross site.... Very confusing and disappointing dining experience. Do NOT go here.

Very good for a drink in a good atmosphere. Only downside is the drinks are very very pricey. But probably the best small dedicated bar in the vineyards.
