    Service was very good and venue beautiful. 4 of us had the 6 course degustation menu which was little disappointing. The courses were very nicely presented but were extremely small and with the courses of duck and beef there was meat only and no vegetables at all. It would have nice to have some accompaniment to the meat or at least be told to order something. For the amount of food we received we thought it was a little overpriced. We would go back but would try some of the menu items.

    My partner and I went to The Gate Restaurant to experience their 7 course degustation menu and we were not disappointed. The whole experience from start to end, was mind blowing. Each course was perfectly balanced in presentation and taste, enjoyable both to eat and admire. We were surprised by some dishes as they challenged our current ideas of different foods and encouraged us to be adventurous. Our compliments to the chefs in the creation and execution of a deliciously authentic and well thought through experience.

    Lovely restaurant in a picture perfect setting. Food was delicious and wines were very nice. We were there for a romantic dinner however we were seated near a loud table of 8. This was disappointing but we still had a lovely night. I would recommend Gates Restaurant to anyone wanting great food and lovely atmosphere. We will certainly visit again.

    The Gates Restuarant at Leogates, is a must do culinary experience when in the Hunter Valley. The service was outstanding, and probably the best dining experience we have had outside of Singapore. Waiters were friendly, knowledgeable and professional. But the cherry on top was the love and passion for great food prepared by the kitchen, especially the Head Chef. You can tell he has a love for food and service.

    Food was ok, some dishes better than others, service was good too, waitress from Argentina was fantastic. Wines; however, were very good and paired exceptionally well.

    Genuinely great restaurant with proper, top-notch service. I've been here a few times and it's never failed to impress. On top of that, the food is fantastic and the value for money is very reasonable.

    Lunch on the beautiful Leogate Estate in the Hunter Valley did not disappoint. From the very informative and helpful Dylan at The Cellar Door through to the fabulous restaurant staff who understood all aspects of the gorgeous food and wine menu, the experience was exceptionally enjoyable. Many thanks for the great service.

    Don't book here if you need to stick to a time limit. If not -enjoy, the food is stunning !! the shared rib eye was cooked to perfection and the oysters were an amazing mix of flavours. We missed the dessert, unfortunately.
