T’was a hot summer night and in spite of our indoors booking with air conditioning we were seated outside as “the air conditioner did not work”. The first drinks were our last, as no one came back to check if we wanted any more drinks.. the entrees arrived and they tasted alright. They were followed by our mains after 1/2 hour as the lamb shoulder needed prep time but there was no salad in sight, in spite of having ordered this (the mains were just meat and needed something non-meat with them) When we brought this to the young waiter’s attention he went to explore but was sadly missed in action, and at the mean time WE were being “dinner” for a swarm of mosquitoes from the adjacent field. The nice young lady who took our order was nowhere to be seen and when I finally got up to go to the counter to see where the salad was she emerged from the back still chewing her dinner! It turned out that she had placed the order but the kitchen staff missed it, we cancelled the salad and were told that as a management courtesy we won’t be charged for it! I asked the young waiter if they could call us a cab to return to our hotel, and was asked in return “was there anything wrong with my mobile phone service!?” Just a funny experience I guess!!

Our group of eight had an enjoyable lunch at Goldfish yesterday. The service was great, but it is a pity the air conditioning wasn’t working, given the very hot day. We sat inside and a fan helped the airflow a bit, but we felt sorry for the waitstaff, who looked very hot. Despite this, our waitress was unfailingly friendly, polite and efficient.

Pate was a pleasant surprise, very generous portion. Pasta was very well cooked. Salmon was not overcooked as well. Did not have their beer, but they had a very impressive selection.

Mainly good food, didn’t like the prawn orecchiette as it was swimming in an oil/butter mix, try it if you like that kind of thing but our party didn’t

The service was terrible. We felt very rushed and that our pre booking was an inconvenience to the restaurant. We booked two weeks in advance for a large group of 9. On the day day we ordered a selection of drinks and food food from the entree and main meal section of the menu. Our food was hurried out of the kitchen with no consideration to order or dining experience. We didn’t receive all our drinks prior to food being served. We had to request on numerous occasions for them to slow down the servicing of food. We noted on departure that it was not a great experience and had we been given more time would have spent more than twice the amount on drinks. The staff did not work effectively together as a team, at times they were abrupt and seemed rushed dispute the restaurant being mostly vacant. A very disappointing experience.

Very large portion. Good quality of food. The scotch fillet was nicely cooked (best dish for the meal). Pasta was a bit hard for my liking but my husband enjoyed it. Kid’s pizza was huge. Only thing bad was the bread with the chicken liver parfait - a couple of pieces were very burnt and not edible. We will definitely go there again if we are in the area. Waiting staff very friendly.

About Goldfish Hunter Valley

Something a little stronger? Classy lounge bar, meets casual deck dining is just one way to describe Goldfish Bar and Restaurant. Located on one of the Hunter Valley’s most iconic wineries, 'Tempus Two', Goldfish effortlessly blends the elegance and glitter of a city cocktail bar with the simple charm of a Hunter winery. Sink back and enjoy the 1920’s style decor and watch the wait staff working hard behind the sparkling bar... or saunter out on to the al fresco dining space and enjoy a tasty cocktail. These guys are famous for their cocktails, so make sure you try a cheeky mixed drink from the Bartenders Choice menu - our favourite is the ‘Sweet Nothing’: a mix of vodka, triple sec, pineapple juice, elderflower syrup, apple, lime & and raspberry juice with vanilla gomme! And the food? The menu is diverse, crafted by head chef Michael Blank (from the Bathers’ Pavillion and Hugo’s in Manly), and features a collection of rustic Mediterranean cuisine and crusty gourmet pizzas. Even though the Hunter Valley is well known for its wine, Goldfish is the place to go when you fancy something a little stronger! Best Dish: Bangalow pork neck, crackling, apple and vanilla puree, witlof, pickled radish and bordelaise.
