The service was absolutely faultless. Food was amazing and plenary of it. We sat at the bar and got to watch the chefs in action. It’s a well oiled machine.

Awesome job by Emma on the wine pairing and non-alcoholic pairing that complement the menu really well.

The dishes were all presented by the chef and made me of beautiful, fresh local ingredients with a clever twist. Service was attentive and we can't recommend it highly enough for a Hunter Valley dining experience!

EXP was stunning. Great, inventive food that combines inventiveness with local ingredients, served with elegance and personality. The full menu is an epic journey through texture and flavour. An absolute must-visit if you're in the region and want a dining experience that challenges your view of great food, and opens your eyes to the world around you.

Good quality food made with locally sourced ingredients. The kangaroo was surprisingly very tender. I enjoyed every dish besides the emu, which had a strange (acquired?) taste. Amazing customer service with romantic atmosphere. Highly recommended for adventurous eaters.

Excellent food, well worth doing the full tasting experience with a large number of varied courses We were very impressed and felt the value was good given the large amount of work put into each course
