My husband and I celebrated my birthday last night at Villa Du Pays, with the six course degustation menu and matching wines selected by Shane. We were greted at the front door with "Happy Birthday" and shown to the perfect table centred in front of the fire. Each course was a taste sensation and the wine choices were outstanding. The service was also fabulous with everyone going out of their way to help make it a special night (and a few extra treats thrown in along the way to help with that). Thanks to Colin at Chateau Elan for telling us about this brilliant restaurant. We booked a limousine service Espirit Hire Cars to drop us off at the restaurant and pick us up after, which meant we could both indulge in the fabulous wines, and our driver Andrew also made us feel special and added to our overall wonderful experience - he was happy for us to call him when ready to go, which meant we could take our time over the meal. We would recommend a night at Villa du Pays for any special occasion, and to anyone visiting the Hunter wanting a memorable evening and dining experience.
