We came here on a hunch. I have been to the hunter about 10 time’s now and this is my first visit to villa du pays. I chose this restaurant based on an online search and wanting to try something different than I have been to in the past (I have been to most of the ‘major’ Hunter restaurants). I took my friends here which you always hope it works out well as it was our only night to have a nice meal together.

Driving up to the estate even though it was night time. First impressions It took our breath away with the gorgeous lake and fountain.

On entry we were quickly greeted and our night went on to be an amazing one.

We ordered x 2 steaks, beef cheek and the duck breast. All the mains were perfect. The star dish would be the beef cheek as it was so tender and juicy. All the sides are tasty too.

Desserts - we ordered the bombe Alaska and the lava cake. Both were nice but the bombe Alaska was so incredible and the highlight for all of us. A dessert to remember and so delicious.

Service was fantastic. Our waiter showed us the steak room and also recommended a great wine. Food came out at a decent pace and our night was enjoyable. We were also left welcome to hang inside even though we were there quiet late until our driver came for us. We didn’t feel like the awkward last customers but treated as if we were their first of the night.

Highly recommended place! Make sure u check it out.

Winding up the hill to this gorgeous location was the first surprise, the venue is beautifully laid out with indoor and outdoor dining. A great wine selection to sample before hand at the cellar door as well.
John from Cheersbus.com in the Hunter Valley was also terrific. As he waited for his bus group to have their lunch he provided us with great ideas for our weekend in the Hunter. I would use Cheers Bus Hire next time I’m in the hunter and definitely go back to Leogate Winery for the afternoon

Talia greeted,seated and served us. Thoroughly gracious host with warm conversation. Our food selections and wine pairing along with a couple of small tastings between courses made for a very pleasurable experience. An impromptu nature show with 10-12 kangaroos, baby rabbit just outside the window, a single crow and several protective mynah birds added to a very pleasant meal. Top marks Talia.
