“Not worth the visit”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 October 2013

A great venue but that's about it...I ordered the garlic bread whilst I waited for my partner to finish golf and it was like a child had just spread butter on a piece of white bread and sprinkled garlic on top. Not great. My partner ordered a club sandwich but a burger came out without his order of Pepsi. The staff got it completely wrong. The venue has lots of potential but is lacking a good chef and staff.

“Delicious Food & Great Service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 August 2013

This was a truly delicious meal. For entrée I had the asparagus starter, The asparagus was crisp and the ham just delicious - the poached egg was a little overdone - but a nice start to the meal. The wagyu steak for a main was just delicious - the steak cut like butter and was cooked to perfection. Finished with the apple and pear tarte tatin - it was good but the pastry was a little underdone. The wine list was excellent as to be expected in the Hunter Valley. The service was very attenttive and welcoming. I would highly recommend a dining experience here.

“Basic bistro”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 August 2013

Limited menu with scant attention from wait staff. Annoying having to pay as you order then pay again for coffee. Also a 2 % surcharge for basic credit cards. Food was ok.
Expected better from a resort
