This is absolutely a great restaurant for any occasions. The wine paring and cocktail is nice too. It has 2 courses and 3 courses options and 5-7 tasting menu. The scollap, soft shell crab, beef and toothfish are outstanding choices. I went there twice. The services are nice too, which brought us there twice.

The experience started walking into and through the wonderful old building and set the scene for the evening that followed.
The ambience and decor was very relaxing and comfortable.
The staff were very friendly and were able to explain each dish on the menu.
The food was exquisite and each course provided a wonderful taste sensation.
The dining experience was relaxed with the staff both engaging, yet giving us space to enjoy our dining.
Well worth a visit - you will enjoy the whole experience from the time you walk across the bridge.

Absolutely amazing tasting menu with local wine pairings. We tried both chefs and vegetarian tasting menus and they were perfectly matched to our tastes. The wines were paired beautifully with the dishes. I came back to the winery next door and bought two bottles of the wine that was paired with our dessert. Jayde, our waitress, was so lovely and knowledgeable about the food and wines and made us feel at ease. I’m so glad I came here.

I’ve always wanted to try lunch at Circa and had the opportunity to try it on this trip to the hunter. I placed my order and advised the waitress that i had a nut allergy. She advised that she would check with the kitchen and advise if anything id chosen had nuts and report back. I was served my entree with was amazing but when being served my main course, I was advised that the dish was missing a complete element (substantial element) which contained nuts and hadn’t been substituted with anything. Had I been advised of this I would have chosen a different dish for my main. When our plates were being cleared I was asked if I’d like some mash (baffled at this timing). Very disappointing for a top restaurant that I’ve wanted to try for so long.

What a fabulous Lunch we had! I couldn't recommend this beautiful restaurant any higher. I will seriously be visiting the Hunter in a few months just to go back to this restaurant- it was that good!
From the moment you walk into the restaurant you can feel the ambiance, its set in the most amazing 1800 Barn/ Shed that has been decoarated and fitted out beautifully!
The food was some of the best I've ever eaten, let alone be plated, it was just devine!
The service was outstanding and I must give Karen a mention as she was excellent to have a chat with!

Have been many times and it never disappoints. The main menu changes frequently and the food always delicious so it is possible to dine there without feeling "you've seen it all before". Service is very friendly and efficient and the ambience is not spoiled by the number of diners.

What an experience. My mate and i had the 5 course with wine accompaniments. Pure class. Amazing from start to finish. Taste, sercice, knowledge, atmosphere. Amazing. The staff were extrmely friendly and helpful. Jade and karen went that extra mile to even write down some suggestion of wineries to visit. Thank you all and especially the chefs for a truly amazing experience.

Food underwhelming for the price. Didn't finish at least one of our dishes. Noticed the table next to us was the same. Beautiful setting but cold inside. Two of the staff were great but the third got our meals wrong and was generally unenthusiastic. Restaurant was not busy and we were a table of four so no excuse. Had to ask for our water to be replenished several times. Not an unpleasant experience but sadly generally disappointed given we were expecting a higher calibre of meal.

Absolutely divine.

Aesthetically it’s my favourite place in the hunter valley. Likewise the restaurant and food are top quality. Honestly it’s to die for.

When you’re sat enjoying beautiful food in a beautiful location and gazing out the window, you see the chef walk into the garden and pick herbs...?! You’re in for something truly special. You just don’t get that anywhere else.

It really is a must anytime you’re in the area. Well worth it and highly recommended.

Overall, the lunch at Circa was fabulous. Totally enjoyed the degustation. All the savoury courses not only looked stunning but had the tastebuds dancing. Setting was so beautiful. Wait staff were attentive and very pleasant. Dessert was the only slight disappointment. Flavours were quite ordinary and the combined dessert on one plate just didn’t seem to work. Such a shame that the final course was lack-lustre compared to the rest of the sumptuous dishes.

Got a phone call to come in early as there was a wedding that night which was fine. However circa didn’t offer the tasting menu. Which we did mention to the staff and they were able to do it for us which is great.

Probabaly notifying guests about functions on that day would be a ideal. As some guests has to cut their food short due to the turnover for the function.

I booked this for my partner's birthday as part of a romantic weekend getaway. Started with a waitress rudely telling us we couldn't order the degustation because it was right on 8'oclock - without checking with anyone and without an apology. It was the whole reason we were there! She wasn't apologetic at all, just rude. I mean, surely the could make an exception on the strike of 8? And for a special occasion birthday dinner??
Food was very pretty but taste-wise was kinda average.
The room is so exceptionally loud - could do with some soft furnishings to soften the roar.
The breads and little complimentary pieces between courses were a lovely touch, and the building is very stunning and impressive.
Would have been nice to have better service when you're spending $200 a person.
