We came back to Circa after our first visit 3 years ago. We had a pleasant experience then. Food was devine, wine list was great. However it was not the experience we had last Sunday. Food was average, wine list was unfortunately shocking. Selling up-market price of wine for bottle-shop wine. That night, we were tossing on our choice of Reds, all of the pouring are not our prefence, we moved on to the bottle list. Prior ordering our Pinot Noir (listed as $90) on the menu, we politely asked the Somellier and advising him that we like our wine bold & full body, leather & woody style (we understand Pinots tend to be lighter, but we have had some flavoursome Pinots that are very chocolaty, woody & leathery). The Som instantly said, “yes and the Pinot Noir is fantastic”, he was not at all sound convicing but we went ahead anyway. On the first pour, we had one sip and made us cringe. It was not at all what we were after, very blend, light like water with aggressive tanin that rips our tongue apart. Som tried to argue with us by still convincing it was a high selling item. We didnt get charge for the wine, seems to us Circa is now very commercial catering for tourists only and lost its identity. We will not be back neither will we recommend.

The food was probably the best I have ever had! The waitress had such a great knowledge of wine and the manager was full
of joy and fun.
I have been in hospitality for many years so I have rather high expectations.
Over all the night was one of the best dining experiences I have ever had.
Thank you Circa we will be back :)

This is a gem! We have visited on several occasions in the past, when on visits to Australia from the UK. The building and surrounding vegetable gardens provide an excellent background.

The food was perfectly prepared and the service was excellent; all together, a perfect occasion!

Circa 1876's menu is so interesting and also offers a wonderful tasting menu for vegetarians and meat eaters. Every dish was outstanding (including the divine bread). The service was a wonderful combination of friendly, knowledgeable and timely. Lots of thoughtful and individual touches made our meal experience very special. You get what you pay for at this lovely restaurant.

Delicious food and wine in a very nice atmosphere. Only ‘criticism’ was that the airco was too cold and that our starter came when we just received our amuses bouche. However, these are details. It was a very nice experience, would recommend it to anyone staying in the Hunter Valley.

Beyond amazing! We both agreed it is the best restaurant experience we have had. We are from Sydney, have travelled a lot, this was the best. Modern, exquisite food - due to the name and fit out, thought it might be old fashioned.. couldn't have been more wrong! Fitout of restaurant is beautiful, old meets modern done cleverly - very impressive. Everything tasted perfect. Great sized servings. We had the 7 courses to make sure we could try as much as possible. So glad we did. Foie Gras was delicious. Moreton Bay Bug my favourite course - cooked perfectly and with a little cube of Pork belly. All the mains were exciting and different. Every course was just to die for. Will drive back from Sydney just to go there again. LOVED IT

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!

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.
