The trendy spot right in the heart of The Hunter. Great atmosphere, chilled music and classy furnishings. An excellent cocktail list... perfect for when you've had enough of the wineries.

“Ruined the last night in the Hunter valley ”
Reviewed August 9, 2014 via mobile

My partner and I booked a table at this restaurant and when we got there we were placed at a table that was not obviously a table for food. It was tiny and the seating arrangements were very cramped,a horrible way to spend a romantic night. We asked to be moved outside to have a bit more room. They said they would give us a few minutes to choose a meal, we waited and waited and we ended up waiting 30 minutes. After watching the staff go to other tables around we were fed up and left, a horrible end to a good weekend

“Extensive cocktail list and good food”
Reviewed August 4, 2014

I went out for dinner here recently as part of a girls weekend away. I went out for dinner here recently as part of a girls weekend away. The cocktail list is fantastic and reasonably priced (starting at approx. $19 for a cocktail or $45 for a pitcher), and the food is the same – great selection of tapas, pizzas to share, mains and dessert. Reasonably priced and tasted great.

Big plus is the free shuttle minibus that runs to and from your hotel and the bar. Makes a night out much easier without the hassle of someone staying sober enough to drive.

I booked in advance after being told that it gets very busy, but they lost my booking and had to move us after incorrectly seating us at a table booked under the same name (but for more people!). Not an issue, but the table we were moved to wasn’t really set up for dinner (was tiny, and once you got two entrees and out drinks on there it was pretty cosy!)

I also found that because there were a few larger groups in that night, service was a bit slow with taking our drinks and food orders. Food didn’t take long to come out once we’d ordered, and as we were sharing a few dishes they did a good job juggling the timing so that we didn’t have all the food at once (given the size of our table). Would go back, but would probably re-confirm my booking on the day.

“The best cocktails EVER”
Reviewed July 26, 2014 via mobile

Even though the prices of the cocktails are soo expensive they are worth every cent. The food is also enjoyable. Relaxing atmosphere of the outdoors

“Gourmet pizza”
Reviewed July 25, 2014 via mobile

Not really being a pizza eater, I was astonished with the quality and variety of pizzas on offer at this restaurant,whilst with a group of friends who ordered for the table these were without doubt the finest I have ever tasted, I am a convert, the atmosphere was lovely and the staff attentive, and nicely decorated.
