“Lovely”
Reviewed May 27, 2013

This restaurant is above the Calais Winery (run separately) which we stumbled on and both the wines and the food were very good. The staff recommended 5 tapas but 4 was plenty for us. If you but the wine downstairs you save about $20 for the same bottle if you purchase in the restaurant. Cost around $65 for two. Good value.

“Perfect setting for a nice lunch”
Reviewed May 26, 2013

We managed to get a table on a Friday lunchtime without making a booking. We were welcomed warmly by our server who explained the menu and tapas choices. We went for two tapas dishes and a tapas tower. The tapas tower was lovely and with the two extra dishes, it was more than enough food for all four of us. Only downside is that it's pretty expensive. Granted it is in the Hunter Valley but it was a pretty pricey lunch all in all. Also, it would be nice to have a few non-tapas options.

“Fantastic food, service and views”
Reviewed May 18, 2013

We had tapas for lunch. There was so much to choose from. We selected 6 different dishes and all were excellent. Menu is extensive, even has a menu for gluten free, lactose free, children, etc. Could not fault the service, all staff very friendly and ensured all our needs were met. Will definitely be back and bring the entire family!
