I recently had a weekend away with my partner, beautiful service and the food was exquisite! We both had the sirloin steak, cooked beautifully! Cocktails were fanastic and made with flair. The gentlemen behind the bar was so polite and the waitress was very professional and had a good knowledge of the food and the valley. the ambiance was almost perfect except for the yelling coming from the owner to several staff members was definitely a turn off! Not only was there yelling but also swearing, this is not appropriate for ANY restaurant!! I felt the staff delivered terrific service and many respects to the staff who delivered food to my table with a smile after being aggressively screamed at. 5 out of 5 for food and service!

My wife and I have eaten at many different restaurants in the hunter valley , many are rated higher than Goldfish! ? ? The overall experience of delicious cocktails , fine dining , the chilled setting makes this venue number one for us ! Arachini balls a must ! Beet root salad , mmmmmmm ! And who would have thought , Brussel sprouts tasting heavenly ! Already planning our return !

To follow we tried the pork cutlet and gnocchi which were so delicious and tasty
you could tell a lot of love and much skill were involved! Yum!
Waitress very attentive and knowledgeable, will definately return!

Went in to see the Live Singer Kelly Hope for Sunday Sessions and was surprised to see the cool fitout and professional service behind the bar. Had a cocktail called Rascal Mule with bourbon, passionfruit and ginger beer after chatting with the bartender and hearing their specialties, then tried a chorizo pizza which was one of the best pizzas I've ever had. Great to just be able to sit up at the bar, have an amazing pizza and watch a live singer in sophisticated surroundings in the Hunter. Will be back for more.
