We visited on Mother's Day for lunch, the restaurant was busy but the staff and the service was friendly and efficient. I always enjoy tapas and the food was delicious and they even adjusted the servicing size for us as we were only a group of three. Lots of children and it's a great venue as they have plenty of...

Tatler has always been a favourite for the tapas servings. We were surprised to find the restaurant had changed hands and the menu had changed. Talking to the staff they said Tapas is Spanish and the new menu reflected that style of food. The servings were generous and the service excellent. Especially recommended is their rocket salad with pear, parmesan... More

Tatlers is such a great location looking over the Brockenback Range, the service was spot on as were the flavours, we enjoyed mussels (my 11 year old's favorite dish ) meatballs, squid and the pork skewers were a hit, very tender. It's our second time here and we'll be back again

Well high expectations being the wife's birthday. We arrived and were warmly greeted and sat. The lunch started well with polite service and timely attention to our needs. Once our food started arriving this is where it stopped. The food was average at best, with one of our ordered dishes not arriving at all. Other patrons when finished were advising... More

The Hunter region is known for offering a good standard of food options, this venue falls well short of the mark. Our lunch visit at Tatlers Tapas was disappointing. The menu reads well and offers what appears to be a good variety. That's where the good news stops. Our group ordered a number of Tapas selections, which we asked to... More
