“Excellent food & service in the Hunter Valley”
Reviewed March 23, 2014

We were a group of 4 enjoying a chance to try out this restaurant. After some pre-lunch wine-tasting in the room downstairs we walked upstairs for lunch. The outside balcony (which has clear plastic curtains for wind and rain protection if needed) was perfect to enjoy the estate views. The staff serving us were attentive and knowledgeable about the menu and choices available. One of our group is lactose and gluten intolerant, and a suitable choice for meals could still be made. I will add that a lot of the entrees and mains were labelled as gluten free on the menu. To maximise our taste experiences we shared 4 different entrees and mains between us, and all were delicious. For mains, the Toothfish with Prawns, and the Pork Belly were especially good according to our group, and the Nigella Lamb, and Mushrooms with Gnochi were also impressive. As mentioned by other reviewers, the Panna Cotta with Pineapple for dessert was a delicious way to end the meal. A big thanks to Kerri our waitress for making our experience more enjoyable with her help and advice, and to the kitchen staff we didn't get to meet, but we thoroughly enjoyed their creations.

We had the 5 course degustation with matching wines. Couldn't fault it! Every course was amazing and the chef even accomodatted a friend who has dietary requirements. Wine was matched perfectly, setting was gorgeous and service was professional and attentive. Highly recommended!! A must if visiting the hunter valley!

“Absolutely Magnificent!”
Reviewed March 22, 2014 via mobile

We were on a girls trip to the Hunter Valley. We booked this restaurant after reading the reviews on Trip Advisor. We were not disappointed!
We went for dinner on a Friday night and could not believe there were only 3 small groups there all night. This is a hidden gem people need to know about ! The service was 5 Star, we had the 5 course with matching wines. One of our friends wasn't eating red meat so the chef was incredibly flexible and provided alternatives for the beef and lamb dishes. They also picked another 2 wines to match the new dishes. It was perfect. The dessert was lovely coconut panacotta. Per head the 5 meals and 5 wines and $105 per person. Really this was such great value considering the 5 star quality of the restaurant, food and service. Well done!!! We will be back and this was a highlight of our trip!!! Excellent!!!

“Best Girls Day Out”
Reviewed February 21, 2014

Had a flight with Newcastle Helicopters with some girlfriends & Hope Estate allowed us to land outside of the Harvest Restaurant. We then sat outside & enjoyed the best set menu matched to the Hope Estate wines. The food & service was fantastic. We changed the dessert but luckily got to meet the owner on our way out & got talking. He insisted we try the coconut panna cotta because he was sure we had missed out by changing our deserts from the set menu. He was right. It is the best dessert I have ever had & I'm not one to eat panna cotta. Highly recommend this restaurant for a girls lunch out. It was fantastic.
