Great location. Entree sizes were extremely small even for this style of cuisine ... it felt mean. Main courses superb. Several mix ups with the bill were all dealt with well by the friendly and efficient waiting staff. Degustation menu which is what we had gone there for was not available 😳 Overall a good experience but marred by the meanness of entree portion sizes, and disappointment of no tasting menu.

Had a really nice lunch at Esca, would recommend the potato gnocchi for entree and the duck for main course. We also enjoyed the sides of pumpkin & mozzarella and mushrooms, both were delicious. The chef gave me a complimentary container of olives to take with us. Very good service will look forward to eating here again.

About Esca Bimbadgen

Esca Bimbadgen is situated high on a hill in the heart of Hunter Valley Wine Country. Dedicated to the art of food & wine matching, Esca’s modern Australian cuisine, fresh local and home grown produce and spectacular views make for a truly memorable dining experience. Esca's contemporary restaurant design features large glass windows and an open balcony allowing guests stunning wine country views over the Bimbadgen vineyards to the Brokenback ranges. Esca Bimbadgen is a regional restaurant, that uses produce sourced locally or grown on the Estate including lemons, figs and fresh herbs. A feature of the menu are the Esca Tasting Plates, like a “mini-degustation”, where guests can enjoy three ‘tastes’ from the menu each matched with a Bimbadgen Estate wine. The wine list offers not only wines from Bimbadgen, but a selection of wines from other Hunter Valley producers and classic wines from regional areas throughout Australia and the world. Esca also has a private dining room for serious wine and food tastings and occasions. Recipient of one Wine Glass in the Gourmet Traveller Wine 2011 Wine List of the Year Awards. A pioneer of fine dining in the Hunter Valley, Esca exemplifies the unique nature of a winery restaurant, rather than simply a restaurant in a winery.
