Margan restaurant never disappoints. Great food and wine in a beautiful setting. Food fresh from the garden and a constantly changing menu. Service very good as well.

The food was outstanding. We were lucky to visit there during the truffles season; we could enjoy some of the entrees with truffle flakes on top. The chicken dish for the main was amazingly soft and tasteful. The wine suggestions were fantastic. We enjoyed the view as well. The dining space has bright and relaxing ambiance in the middle of the vineyards and in front of their private vegetable garden.

Perfect fine dining date place in the Hunter Valley. Very creative dishes that uses a farm to plate approach to cooking. Would go again for another special occasion!

The service from all the wait staff was excellent. We had the degustation menu and our son had the 3 course. All courses were excellent. The standout for us was the poached salmon, egg with truffle, halloumi with pumpkin and the citrus curd for the palate cleanser. Would definitely recommend for a special occassion.

What a wonderful experience. Everything was just the best topped off by a tour of the amazing kitchen garden. Thank you so much.

Best dining experience I've had in a very long time added to by the ability to walk the expansive gardens / vege patch after the meal.

Love this joint. Not many places you love to just hold the food in your mouth to savour the flavours. Never disappoints.

About Margan Restaurant Hunter Valley

Go for Broke Regular visitors to the Hunter know to make a beeline to Margan’s in Broke for great wines paired with great food. Margan Restaurant has quickly become a Hunter institution known for its commitment to ‘estate grown, estate made’ produce. They craft their menus around the seasonal harvest from the one-acre kitchen garden and orchard – they also have their own olive trees, free-range chickens for farm-fresh eggs, honey and lambs. At Margan, it’s all about minimising the carbon footprint so that the land remains viable for generations to come (they are proud to be the first Hunter Valley restaurant & winery certified for their environmental sustainability initiatives). And of course, the food and award-winning wines by Andrew Margan. In fact the restaurant is awash with awards including 5 Star Winery James Halliday Wine Companion 2009 – 2014, Sustainable Restaurant of the Year in the SMH Good Food Guide 2012, and the 14 Top Ten Regional NSW Restaurants in the Gourmet Traveller Guide in 2013 and 2014. The menu changes regularly but you might find such local delights as dry-aged pasture fed Wagyu with bone marrow, smoked potato and heirloom carrots (paired with a Margan Shiraz), Jerusalem artichoke with gruyere, Margan hen’s egg, pickled celery, walnut (try it with a pinot gris) or local squab with black pudding, onion, apple and yakon (recommended with a Margan White Label Barbera). And let’s not forget the to-die-for desserts which could feature a honeycomb parfait with Holy Goat mousse, pomegranate and Chai doughnuts. Best dish: Seared venison with beetroot and gin, endive and horseradish
