Was visiting the Roche Estate as part of a lazy long week-end and came across Goldfish. Being late-ish on a Friday afternoon, not many customers worked in our favour as the standard and attentiveness of customer service was outstanding. From sublime cocktails to juicy fish tacos this was a lovely way to while away a Friday afternoon.

In the heart of the Hunter Valley within Roche Estate(formerly known as Tempus Two) complex is Goldfish restaurant and bar. The restaurant has alfesco dining with a pleasant outlook into the vineyard, with vines also clinging to the pagola providing shade and giving the feel of enjoing you meal in the vineyard. The internal dining space is suave with a... More

We found the Goldfish on a list of suggested high level restaurants in the Pokolbin area, this couldn't have been more inaccurate! I would certainly not suggest to anyone coming here, the food was almost inedible and my partners wine was not what you'd expect in wine country! If you are thinking of coming here I suggest only cocktails (which... More

Grateful that they could accommodate us last minute on Valentines Day, we had very nice dinner. Everything we tried was tasty, and as mentioned by other reviews, excellent cocktails. Wine list had plenty of variety at reasonable prices. Service was predictably slow considering it was VD, but servers were friendly and helpful. Would love to come back for a show... More

Good prices, fabulous cocktail choice, amazing pizza ( thin crust & perfect amount of topping), quick service & very friendly guys serving. We needed a quick lunch & this place was just right. Had flathead tacos, 1 each to start, then a pizza to share. Although it was so good, I could easily eaten a full one. If I lived... More

Been to this place on many occasions and every time its always excellent. The casual relaxed atmosphere is great. Outside you can sit near a water feature or overlooking the green grass of Roche Estate. Both are great options. Decor inside is nice and is accompanied by nicely dimly lit lights. Ordered a beautiful cocktail. French 75 it was called.... More

We were booked to go for a romantic dinner at Muse. Due to a power outage they were unable to open that night so we ended up at Goldfish Bar & Kitchen. Not really comparable I guess but we weren't left with much choice. Thank goodness some places have generators. The food was quite good although pricey for a pub... More
