Top line dining with subtle flavours based on really fresh produce and superb presentation.Add in the Margan family's semillion.The match of 2001 semillion from magnum with caramelised skate was one of my top combinations. Great service too. Broke Fordswich is well worth the extra drive from more touristy areas and the terrior adds weight to these gorgeous wines.Fantastic.

Wow, what a stunning location!
That aside, we had an amazing breakfast here on Sunday, 26th of Jan!
We had been to the Cellar Door the day before and sampled their exceptional wines before booking our breakfast. Well worth the double trip out to Margan's!
For my breakfast I had the Omlette (chorizo, garden potato and spinach) with the cutest cup of tea ever (see pic), while my partner had the Eggs Benedict with a side of mushrooms and a coffee. All of it was absolutely amazing!
We are both big fans of a Newtown breakie, but Margan's honestly takes the cake, it is hands down, without a doubt THE best breakfast either of us have ever had!
Prices were great too with breakfast at $18 each (plus tea and coffee). This is what you would pay anywhere else, for less than half the taste, no view and crappy service. Staff here are friendly and fantastic by the way! They had a large family table booking as well as about 5 or 6 couples seated and the 2 wait staff made it look like a breeze, even having time for a quick chat with patrons here and there. Great job!
Will definitely be back here again, and again, and again!!

As we sat outside enjoying our lunch, one of our four said 'it doesn't get much better than this' .. and they were right. These people know how to cook and present great food. Each plate was delicious and looked a treat. And I have not mentioned the wine yet! We have been Margan wine fans for years and to be able to enjoy them with the meal at cellar door prices is an added bonus. Service was attentive but allowed us to relax and enjoy the food and surroundings. We were surprised how reasonable the bill was considering the quality of the food .. and the amount of wine we consumed .. really good value for money. This is a place to come for a special occasion or just to enjoy great food and wine ... delightful dining.

The price of the mains put this restaurant into the "treat" category for us, however when you see the wine list at cellar door prices you realise that for the quality of food/wine and outstanding service received that this restaurant is extremely reasonable. Having eaten at Esca (Bimbadgen) yesterday we were reminded how much Margan is leaps and bounds beyond peers in all areas of food, wine and service Margan is our no 1 pick for dining on all occasions. Please list as a Hunter Valley/pokolbin restaurant (not just Broke) so others see this gem when searching for a place to eat when visiting the wine region.

Had dinner here with family and cannot recommend this restaurant more. If you're looking for fine dining, with fabulous food, this is where you must book!

Service, food and wine was 10/10. Be prepared to wait for your courses because the effort and time put into each one is 110% but it's totally worth it.

Looking forward to returning next time we're in the Hunter!
