“Great food and excellent service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 23, 2014 via mobile

We held an after wedding brunch party for about 70 people at goldfish in January. The food was fantastic and the staff were amazing. Attention to detail was great, nothing was too much trouble and lots of our guests commented on the excellence of the food and the great service provided by the friendly and courteous staff. Compliments to the chef - everything tasted wonderful and was beautifully presented. Will definitely visit again.

“So good, we went twice.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 17, 2014

This restaurant is among an abundance of choices in "the hunter" but as luck would have it we stumbled upon it. The food choices were fresh and interesting. The first night we had a wild mushroom pizza with asparagus and added a avocado salad made of celery, snow pea vines, avocado, and onion in a fantastic dressing. I also had a scallop plate that had perfectly prepared scallops in a snow pea foam with ham chunks to go with the scallops.

The next day we had a lamb, rosemary, potato, and feta pizza with the avocado salad again.

The service wasn't the best the first trip but was outstanding the second trip. If you are in "the hunter" eat here.

“Good casual dining choice”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 17, 2014

We were in Hunter Valley on a Monday night and there is not much open on a Monday so we were pleased to come across Goldfish. It's in a nice complex overlooking the valley, with a very stylish interior and a relaxing terrace. It does some decent pub food - I had a perfectly cooked pork chop - and great value wine. Perfect for a quick and casual meal. I bet it has a really good atmosphere when it's busier. Well recommended.

“Great Gatsby style”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 14, 2014

Love this new bar. Decorated "Great Gatsby" style and I loved it. You can sit inside or outside and admire the beautiful view. Only issue is they had run out of three wines they had on the wine list, otherwise very nice place for a drink or two.

“Compliments to the chef. ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 9, 2014 via mobile

Came into Goldfish for a casual lunch with my friend. As usual, we were well looked after by Jennifer, she was very helpful, friendly and welcoming. Our cocktails, made by Jacob, were fantastic! Very tasty. The best part of our visit was definitely the food, we had the zucchini flowers and scallops to start, then to follow we had the beef carpaccio. Every dish was delicious, definitely no complaints. Chef Michal Blank is a terrific chef, I would recommend Goldfish to all my friends and family. Compliments to the chef!
