We have been to EXP. Restaurant a few times and each time we have loved it. Food is exceptional, so fresh and tasty and the staff are very friendly.

Been here before. Very disappointed this time. The creativity and deliciousness have disappeared. A pity!

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!

If you're in the Hunter, this is a great experience with delish food. We left totally satisfied!

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.

We were excited to try Exp., having visited other great places in the Hunter Valley. While I could feel what I chef was going for, it wasn't anything "amazing"...and for $95 a head, I expected more. The kangaroo was the best I have had, and probably ever will, but the other dishes were just average, with some interesting ingredient choices. Not wonderful, not bad, but middle of the road.

Great use of local produce. Interesting array of tasting appetisers.
