“Top tier food at mid tier prices”
Reviewed 8 June 2014 via mobile

We've been to several restaurants in top 20 Sydney list (Tetsuyas, Cafe Sydney, Aria, you get the picture) Villa du Pays trumps all of them by offering food that is of almost the same quality at a much lower price. Their waygu bresaola with fluffy truffled mash is currently my lifetime favourite. Great setting for a romantic dinner too.

“Members dinner”
Reviewed 3 June 2014

My husband and I attended the members dinner and were blown away by the exceptional service and wonderful food. The 7 course degustation dinner was incredible, some of the best food I have ever eaten. The beef was cooked to perfection and I don't think I have ever had any better. The owners, Bill and Vicki, greeted everyone and made everyone feel welcome. I know it's pot luck when you attend one of these dinner and are seated on a large table but everyone on our table was lovely and really added to the fun of the evening. I couldn't fault the service - all of the staff were wonderful. All in all, we had a wonderful evening and can't wait to go back.

“Members dinner”
Reviewed 1 June 2014

My husband and I had the most wonderful night at Leogate Winery Hunter Valley 31st May 2014. We were staying at the Crowne Plaza Lovedale, another wonderful experience. We were picked up by the winery bus and arrived 5.30pm Sat. night. Met their fabulous team and also Mark the winemaker who has just won an award for his shiraz in London. Lovely degustation dinner with wines to compliment and then half way through dinner, with wine in hand, we were treated to a fireworks display. Just fabulous. Everyone were enjoying themselves and Maureen looked after us exceptionally. Would recommend highly for wines and also food.

“Most disappointing”
Reviewed 31 May 2014

The steak was great! The view OK, the staff pleasant but the whole dining experience for the high prices paid was very ordinary. Unfortunately the basics were provided but there was nothing extra…. even had to pay for the bread. We won't be back!
