Zucchini flowers were cooked to perfection, dining outdoors with crisp white Hunter Valley wine was a delight. Service was excellent, menu very good in a lovely little shopping complex.

Extremely delicious and good value dinner. Our group of friends had the most memorable evening at the cellar. Highly recommended. Especially since we we think to the muse the night after and experienced the biggest letdown. Going recommend the cellar any day over the muse.

We enjoyed the food here. My hubbie really enjoyed his steak. We would definitely go back. I had the scallop entrée which was nice too.

We visited the Cellar on Monday Apr 10 as part of a organised Wine Tour. The Steak and Chocolate Desert was excellent and the service given by Louise and Natalie was friendly, professional and efficient.

We were a large group wanting a better dining experience than the previous night in another establishment close by. The decor was lovely and I felt I should have dressed up a bit. Menu very extensive and expensive considering sides are extra. We discovered that you cannot have an entree only - you must buy a main. None of us... More

Have had numerous lunches hear prior to concerts at Roche, Bimbadgen and though I hate to say it Michael Hope's (shocking venue). The service and menu are great and the private dining area for 8 or more is a lovely way to catch up before concert going

Attentive staff and a cute setting.. My partners chicken came out slightly undercooked as did my steak, I asked for medium came out closer to rare. Chicken was sent back and came back a few minutes later in a better condition. I ate my steak as was, as I'm not too fussed about the condition of my meat. The only... More

This is tough one to review. The staff were friendly and service was excellent. The food wasn't bad, but it was lacking somehow. I think it was a tad over priced for what we got. Our group ordered 3 steaks, Lamb cutlets and a prawn dish. We also ordered some sides. We all ate the meals but there was just... More
