Parking was easy and right out front, staff were very friendly, menu was fantastic with a large selection, food was high quality and the facilities were well presented. … More I would recommend this place for a meal, overall it was an enjoyable occasion.

I’m usually very sceptical of eating out with having coeliac disease and very often get anxious about it. But the wait staff were … More incredible helpful and reassuring with handle my dietary needs.
    Restaurant is very clean and great atmosphere ????????

    A beautiful new venue that didn't disappoint! Great atmosphere and friendly staff. Meal prices have gone up but we really enjoyed our food. Pasta size was huge and had enough for leftovers. Oysters Kilpatrick were divine. So flavoursome … More and huge they were devoured before we could take a pic. Pizzas looked amazing! A wonderful local venue for afternoon drinks or a special event.

    Unbelievable! I’m beyond impressed, literally have no words for how quality this meal was. I was starting to think that Newcastle and the Hunter Valley had no quality food at all, but my goodness! This place is impeccable, you can taste … More the care and quality from ingredient selection all the way through to portion size and presentation! Even the pizza is some of the best I’ve eaten outside of Italy and better than most anywhere! In summary, best restaurant in the Newcastle/hunter region, best food I’ve eaten out in a long while anyway. Honestly I’m coming here at least once a week and I live in Cessnock (45 minute drive away). We’ll done chef, we’ll done team!!
