“Daring, Innovative, Entertaining”
Reviewed January 9, 2012

To dine at Ritual is a very special experience. It's entertaining because of the different approach to food and palate. It's a delight to the human sense of taste, as well as the challenge of focussing on what's happening. It's not a meal as such, it's a gastronomic journey through some fascinating landscapes. My only disappointment was that I was driving and chose not to drink the matching alcohol. Full credit to the chef and his wife for their efforts in taking humble diners to lands previously undiscovered. As one diner said of one dish - this is not a mix of ingredients, but a mix of two completely separate tastes in the mouth at the same time.

“Easily the best food experience I've ever had!!”
Reviewed December 20, 2011

Every dish was an amazing taste explosion. I've never seen food so well presented. Each plate was a work of art. The staff were friendly, and were helpful in explaining each course and how to eat it for us.
I went there with my work mates as our Christmas party, and though the restaurant traditionally just holds 12-18 people, there were 24 of us. The staff were so eager to have us in, they had to find extra wine glasses and chairs for all of us.
Easily the best restaurant I have been to in the Newcastle area, and I definitely intend to return. Thank you Ritual Restaurant! (:

“Quite simply excellent and our best food experience ever”
Reviewed July 15, 2011

The chef and his team put a huge amount of work in planning the menu and execution is without a flaw. Each dish is explained, interestingly presented and tastes great (despite some very unusual combinations!). Nothing that we have experienced compares to this restaurant. We will be back!

“Great gastronomic and fun filled experience.”
Reviewed July 12, 2011

Our group of 3 couples celebrated a special birthday at Ritual, and it was certainly a different experience. Previous reviews have been very good, and our experience was not disappointing. From the first minute we were made very welcome and provided with quite a unique and unexpected range of taste sensations and servery techniques. The innovative way of choosing individual persons tastes for each of the 3 courses was fascinating, as was the progression of small tastings between each course. The selection of wines and beer was very well chosen by a skilled owner and staff, if a little expensive. All in all, I strongly recommend Ritual for a different group experience.
