Imagine eating an amazing French inspired cuisine overlooking rolling green hills. That's what this place is all about. The vista and decor feels like you're in Europe, while eating delicious cuisine and sipping beautiful wine. This is a great place for a long lunch with friends. Highly recommended. We loved this place. A friend took us who have been here... More

We attended a wedding which was well catered for by Bistro Molines. Staff were very professional and the food and wine were good. However, maybe due to the wet weather, there was a pervasive smell of sewage from the on site septic system. This was quite distracting from the whole of the evening.

The food and the views were both amazing as was the service. Worth the drive up the hill (a few hundred metres of easily accessible dirt road) Quite expensive but definitely worth it. Food was well presented and very tasty. We arrived at 2pm for a late lunch so was able to take the benefit of a great table.

Couldn't not recommend highly enough. Had a perfect lunch here- the food and views were amazing. A little pricey but worth it. A must do in the Hunter.

From making the booking to finishing the meal everything was perfect. The location with the view down the valley starts the relaxing meal. There were so many great options on the menu and the service was excellent. We have dined at a lot of restaurants, but this is the one that I will always go back to.

Lunch yesterday was perfection. Grahame from Hunter Valley Private tours made our booking upon request. Busy restaurant but nothing too much trouble - we had a fabulous table with a great view. Venison for my husband & Duck for myself - both awesome! Stunning Semolina Pudding for dessert was a lovely way to celebrate my hubby's birthday. Special, special, special!

We had a very special and memorable lunch at Bistro Molines. Super fresh and delicious food in a relaxed atmosphere with gorgeous views over Tallavera vineyards. Friendly staff made us feel most welcome. Especially enjoyed my dessert of freshly homemade berry sorbet with a shot of vodka. Thank you for making it!! Try the sheep brains with capers - crispy...
