We had dinner here easter long weekend and wow ! The food was amazing, everything condiments each part if the dish very well. We both had lighly fried squid for an entree and scotch fillet and bone marrow /confit duck for mains which was sensational ! The meals are presented very well and the rocky road souffle is that good ! The staff were very very friendly and easy to get along with ! I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone who whats a nice elegant meal with a beautiful view.

“Friendly & Delicious”
Reviewed April 15, 2014 via mobile

The ambience was warm & welcoming with a side of chic. The staff were very pleasant & friendly and service was prompt without being intrusive. The beef was tender and tasty, the salmon perfectly cooked with crispy skin and the pork belly just right. The complimentary Amuse Bouche was a perfectly seasoned mussel. The rocky road soufflé was delicious but a little too much as it was so rich alongside the chocolate fudge, ice cream & berries. Overall a winner!

“A Birthday Treat”
Reviewed April 14, 2014

Chose this for a birthday dinner so wanted something special but not too over the top. Ate on a Saturday night. The decor was not inspiring as half the restaurant was screened off with black boards & the decorations were very minimalisist. The seating looked like wedding chairs. The service was efficient, friendly & inobtrusive. Just what you want. I had 2 courses & they were of a substantial size & both were tasty. The squid was very tender & the salmon cooked well with the accompanying potatoes/salsa very delicious. My partner had the scallops which had a great taste but were just not quite enough at only 3. His duck was to his liking. He had room for the crumble which was served with an amazing cinnamon gelato. The bottle of wine we had (Polin & Polin) was very reasonably priced for the Hunter region. They rang for a taxi for us & we left feeling we had had an enjoyable evening.

“Had a Great Meal”
Reviewed February 11, 2014 via mobile

Heard good and bad but decided to go with it. Glad we did. A very enjoyable meal and the best squid I have ever tasted. A bad review just means the menu didn't really suit that person. Great food and friendly service. Give it a go, you will be pleased.

New Chef since our last visit, AMAZING food. The steak melted in your mouth. Unique combination of ingredients. Went back the next night to have the items we didn't before. Believe this to be one of the best in the Hunter!
