From the get go the staff were extremely friendly accompanied by a great sense of humour. My wife and I went for the set menu putting our trust into the chef's and what a great decision it was.

From the introductory snacks to the final desert everything was a fantastic experience. Very flavoursome and highly recommended for those who like to enjoy food.

If you're the type of person who is picky with your food or who want to try and change the set menu, I think there is a McDonald's somewhere around here. Go there and save the reservations for people who want to enjoy some extremely beautiful locally sourced food.

Extremely full and satiate after our meal and what an EXP.erience it was.

Exceptional and outstanding degustation experience. Quality, flavour, textures and innovation. Noah did a great job presenting the various dishes that surprised us. Deliciousness is off the scale. I note some of the reviews say it's expensive, and yes it is a special occasion price tag but they deliver unlike so many over priced restaurants. As new locals, this is set to me our favourite also with our guests.

We ventured to the Hunter Valley to EXPerience this wonderful little restaurant. While the dining space was small, the flavours were large. We did the tasting menu, starting with tasty snacks. The "Zinger" fish wing with hot sauce was flavoursome, and the other snacks set the scene perfectly. My favourite was next - the Hiramasa Kingfish with duck tongue. The smoked celeriac puree with the pork neck was one of the best we have had. The beetroot puree packed a punch and accompanied the beef cheek splendidly. Desserts were a delight, starting with the Milk & honey and ending with the "Magnum". All in all, we could not fault the food. Being seated at the kitchen bar gave an added perspective and allowed insightful interaction with the kitchen staff. We also paired the non alcoholic beverages which were sensational, very close to those of 3-hatted restaurants in Melbourne. We will gladly go back to visit, perhaps in summer for dinner, with an overnight stay in Pokolbin.

With another couple visited and had the $100ph degustion menu.

We opted to just choose individual wines instead of the wine accompanying each dish.

Excellent, friendly and efficient service. A lot of time and effort has gone into staff training and it paid dividends.

Small restaurant, with only 10 tables, can become noisy when full compement of diners.

Amazing variety and beautiful presentation of dishes.

We will return.

Recommended!
