After visiting Hunter Valley 2 months ago we are back for more sensational food and wine! We have started with Tatler and wow what a taste sensation. We have the family on tow this time so our choices had to be a little kid friendly so we started with the bread and warm olives followed by the bad boy chips!... More

We were all impressed with the tapas the meatballs were great, goat cheese tarts where nice, chorizo sausage rolls with chutney were excellent. But the favorite were the fat boy chips with aoili. We also ordered... More

We stopped here for lunch and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The food was well prepared and absolutely delicious. The staff were friendly and accommodating. The chef Katy came out for a chat and even gave us an extra serving of chips on the house. How good is that!!! Well worth a visit.

We visited with our 3 kids (under 8 years old). The food was delicious, especially the beetroot tart and "chocolate nemesis cake". Yum! The staff were very friendly and accommodating. Highly recommended. Looking forward to our next visit already.

The food at Tatler is really something special - fresh, tasty and beautifully prepared. There's a nice friendly, casual atmosphere and I felt very comfortable there as a solo diner. This is a restaurant with real personality. The waitstaff are lovely young people and the chef, Katy, came to each table to chat with guests which was a lovely touch.... More

Tatler's Tapas cafe is located on Lovedale Road, not far from the Crowne Plaza Hotel. The cafe is quaint in style and next to the winery. We were invited to a private function of 60 people, and one would expect the run of the mill food. Not so, my expectations were happily well and truly exceeded. Each dish made especially... More

Great setting, good food and wine! Not incredibly large servings, but went away satisfied... Good variety of food/ wine/ beers etc. Served by a young bloke who looked after us well. Would go back ;)

A first visit to Tatlers was somewhat disappointing. While the tapas were good, the ambience was not to a similar standard. Due to concrete floors and unfurnished walls, the noise factor was overpowering. In fact, so much so, that we had difficulty holding a conversation even on the small table. Some sound absorbing coverings on the floor would definitely help.
