We bought an expensive bottle of wine which was decanted, but had to refill our own glasses the entire night. So many staff (on a Friday night) but no one actually saw our empty wine and water glasses. The goat cheese tortellini was very good, but my venison carpaccio was totally overpowered by the accompanying beetroot. Pity. And I wanted... More

We had dinner at Legends Grill whilst staying at Chateau Elan for my wife's birthday and we enjoyed sharing 4 of their entree meals and were impressed with the friendly service that we received, especially from Riley who made our night just that little more special. Great value dining in a beautiful location.

We had the natural oysters for entree, we could have ordered another dozen. Plump and creamy. Steak and barramundi for mains. Steak was cooked to perfection and fish was excellent. But for us, dessert took the cake (pun intended). Hubby had the popcorn parfait and I had the chocolate pannacotta. Both were great, but I wish I had ordered the... More

We had the barramundi and pork belly for mains which were cooked to perfection! We're still talking about it. There is also a decent kids menu and high hairs available. All staff bar one (Viv) were friendly and attentive when we are there. Would be top of our list for next visit as well.

After a game of golf on a good course in a great setting we opted to eat at the Legends Grill. The staff in the pro shop we're accomodating and arranged towels for showers to be left in the locker rooms. The wine list was good although a bit expensive. Good variety of meals on the menu with the 'lamb... More

Beautiful setting - some great dishes and a good wine list. We had the rib eye steak and barramundi with veggies on the side and everything was prepared well and satisfying. The staff on duty were all friendly and professional. A bit on the expensive side though.

Pretty low marks for this one unfortunately. Prices are similar to some of Sydney's best restaurants but the food was a long, long way south. Let's leave it there. On the up side, I give this restaurant high marks for its wine list. Good coverage of the local Hunter Valley region wines and at reasonable markup-ups.

We checked the menu prices on line before arrival, nearly bowled over by how expensive they were. Considering they boast that they source & use locally acquired fresh produce I couldn't justify the price of their food, luckily there is alternative dining on the premises.
