Visited in January 24 for a lunch with three generations of family

Our table was served by a wonderfully effervescent waitress who was from Poland, who managed to get the correct balance of small talk and service just right

The food, as she pointe dout to us on the day, is *not* fine dining - it's bistro food; the serves are extremely generous, and the quality is high.

Special mentions to the Charcuterie board - could easily be shared bewteen two - and the Filet Mignon, which were some of the largest serves of that cut I've eaten, but tender, moist, and cooked to perfection.

We went for the Cherry Crepes, a special on the day, and they too were wonderful, but perhaps needed an intense cherry sauce to better balance the flavours.

The pricing is a little problematic - an extra $30 for dessert feels steep - but $100 for generous entree and mains did not seem unreasonable. Regardless, we left feeling wonderfully full, and that we had gotten excellent value for money, and had been served quality ingredients by some wonderful staff.

Highly recommended.

For a “fine dining” experience the food did not live up to expectation I am afraid.
We ordered numerous dishes as we were a group and were left wondering why so much hype over such salted sauces and unbalanced offerings.
Entrees were tasty. Mains meats were suitably prepared but the sauces were very overpowering for our taste.

TripAdvisor Review:
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Bistro Molinés in Mount View Hunter Valley is a gem that deserves every bit of praise. While my lunch plans with friends didn't work out, I decided to treat myself, and I'm so glad I did.

To start, the chicken and foie gras was a symphony of flavors that set the tone for an exceptional meal. The duck that followed was nothing short of exquisite, leaving my taste buds dancing with delight. And, of course, the anticipation for dessert is almost as sweet as the meal itself.

The wine selection here is a true highlight, with Molinés Chardonnay and a lovely Pinot complementing the dishes perfectly.

The location is charming, and what truly makes Bistro Molinés shine is the warm hospitality of Sally and Robert. They create an inviting atmosphere that makes every visit memorable.

If you appreciate fine dining, Bistro Molinés is a must-visit destination. This place is a testament to culinary excellence and exceptional service.

Arrived at the restaurant where temperature was in the mid 30’s and windy was given a table outside but we immediately realised that this was not suitable and asked if we could have a table inside. We were shown to the worst table in the dining room basically a small wooden table which was on a slant. Chairs were also very uncomfortable. We asked our waitress if this was the only table available as we could see other nicer tables available and these tables were not filled during our 2 hour dining time. This beggars the question as to why we were not seated there the first time.
We were approached by who I would think was the restaurant manager who though was happy to move us spoke to me in a very condescending manner! And in a loud voice to boot so other diners could hear her. So our lunch experience which we were looking forward to was ruined.
When staff make you feel as if they are doing you a favour by allowing you to dine and treat you with disrespect it then becomes a place I will not go to again or recommend.
On their web page where they say that their ethos is to treat everyone with respect this was severely lacking here.
Wines by the glass is not shown and you have to ask for it and are simply told the varietal of wines that they have but not the vineyard they are from or the costs per glass?!
The food was great but the overall experience disappointing!
