Unfortunately I'm using my first review as a negative but had a very average meal at fine quality price so feeling disappointed especially as it is rated high usually this holds true in my experience. Special for entrée was salt and pepper squid and was quite good, asparagus salad also good. The mains were terrible, duck was so dry and... More

My wife and I visited Amanda's on the Edge for the first time breaking away from what has become our usual eating spots in the Hunter. Linda chose to book a table here based on positive reviews and in all honesty we were not disappointed. Service was impeccable and the wait staff were very knowledgeable of their product. We started... More

A very charming restaurant with staff and food to match. Highlights were the stuffed mushroom, gnocchi with braised oxtail and the chocolate fondant for dessert. Staff were very accommodating and friendly, and the place had a good vibe. Would definitely recommend to other visitors to hunter valley.

After reading reviews on TripAdvisor my husband and I decided to try Amanda's as we have eaten at most of the top pokolbin restaurants many times but wanted to try somewhere new. The restaurant venue itself is quaint and the views lovely. The menu had a nice variety which appealed to our tastes to begin we ordered the Tyrell's Pinot... More

I little gem at the end of the road. Beautiful views. Staff were friendly and knew the wines. Dinner and dessert were delicious. Will return next visit, maybe for lunch to sit and relax with views.

Reliably high quality meals with consistent, personal service. Standard menu is fantastic, catering for most and has a nice wine list. Always have French champagne by the glass. Eye fillet is high quality - always cooked perfectly and matches perfectly with the best shoestring fries. Alternating fish dishes always provide something special. Desserts must be experienced, they are special.

Dined at Amanda's one Saturday night dining on Saturday requires a minimum of 2 courses. Menu had a great variety with nice range of specials. We went BYO which is a great option with a $5 corkage charge. Staff were attentive but not in your face. Only negatives was that the sparkling wine we started with was on the warm... More

I booked Amanda's on the Edge on a Friday night for a table of five, including one child. The food was delicious. I had the ocean trout special with tomato hollandaise, smashed chats, and asparagus. It was absolutely superb. I also enjoyed the peach and berry crumble to finish. My dinner companions all enjoyed their meals, with special mention of... More
