“Best. Food. EVER.”
Reviewed November 2, 2013

My fiance and I were on the prowl for wedding venues in 2012 and, after a whole lot of searching, stumbled across Margan. From the moment we walked in on our first visit, we were blown away by the faultlessly attentive and helpful staff. We were seated at an immaculately set table and treated like royalty without ever mentioning our purpose for being there. The food was simply spectacular and it's clear that all of the awards the restaurant and cellar have received over the past couple of years have been well deserved. Needless to say, we decided to have our wedding and reception here. It was the best decision we could have made. Guests raved all night about the exceptionally high quality of both the food and wine. The organic produce used for every dish is the icing on the particularly fine cake that is Margan. I would recommend this restaurant without hesitation to anyone looking to experience the best the Hunter Valley has to offer.

“Heard great things but very disappointing”
Reviewed October 8, 2013

Friday Lunch for 2 adults/1 teenager and 1 child. Nice on Verandah. Disappointing fact was service or lack of. 2.25 hours to get main after sitting at 12. Nice olives and bread for snacks, ordered entrée with matched wine, ( wine didn't turn up), Entrée food quality exceptional prawn/mussel with great flavour but nothing to drink with not even water. Veggie garden salad nice but nothing special for the money. Mains Sirloin was told would be medium one came out cold and almost over well done ( grey and almost unable to be cut) and one was medium in 2 slices and cold. Lamb dish cold. Had to go to entry desk to ensure matched wine came with meal. Childs meal was good. Would like to have deserts but given that table was not cleared within 20 minutes of finishing meal decided to do the rare thing of paying for meal at front desk before they had cleaned up table. Only decent thing is that they didn't charge us for the wine. Unsure how this restaurant has a hat based on this experience.

“Just average food”
Reviewed October 6, 2013

Staff were great but food was average, we sat outside and had many children running around with a ball t night which didn't really help
Food was fresh and ok but certainly not wow

“Lovely setting and food”
Reviewed September 15, 2013 via mobile

We visited on a beautiful autumn weekend- enjoyed a wine tasting first followed by a delicious lunch in the restaurant and then a stroll through the kitchen garden. Service was friendly and we would definitely return again!

“WOW WOW WOW”
Reviewed September 1, 2013

Margan restaurant is amazing! The staff are very helpful and made the dining experience so pleasant and relaxed!

As for the food, every dish sounded delicious on the menu and tasted even better when served!

We visted for a long lunch so we could take in the beautiful setting that the restaurant is located in. It is a bit of a drive to get to Broke from Pokolbin but I can guarantee you won't be disappointed!

I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone wanting a fine dining experience in a lovely location!
