Amanda's is hard to find, in an unassuming location and a building that could be a house, but the food is outstanding. We visited Amandas on the basis of excellent reviews- and they proved to be totally correct. All three courses were amazing, with reasonable pricing and friendly service. When you next visit the Hunter Valley- go out of your... More

We quite enjoyed our mains but the desserts were average, unfortunately. The service was quite good, and it was nice sitting out on the balcony, particularly with the outdoor heaters. It's in a nice, quiet spot, although they could do with some more lighting from the car park around to the front of the restaurant.

My husband, daughter, her Australian boyfriend and I dined at Amanda's on the Edge and had delicious curries of various kinds. The younger ones who eat meat loved their dishes and my husband and I did our veggie curries as well. Very pleasant setting, good service and tasty choices.

Absolutely lovely restaurant with amazing food! Had a perfect steak and a pasta with prawns! Really great job by the staff for squeezing us in when they already had a full house.

We have been to Amanda's on the Edge a couple of times but it's been a couple of years. The best way to summarise the experience is it is good honest food served by average wait staff. You're also very tightly packed into the restaurant. Some suggestions might be that when you have an extensive menu and someone asks what... More

The only reason This wasn't Excellent was the time it took for food which was a couple of hours and the Table location however it was a table for 16, but one side was jammed right in front of the kitchen entrance so staff were constantly brushing pass us. The food was delicious though and I would definitely return as... More

Our booking was for 16 at 7:00 pm on Saturday night and we did our best to arrive on time from pre drinks at a nearby golf resort.This was a milestone occasion ( Mother in law's 70 th birthday ) with teenagers and parents. All I can say... More

Excellent food, friendly and attentive (but not over-attentive) service and the huge bonus of BYO. Being able to take along your best bottles after a day of vineyard hopping is a real luxury at such an upmarket venue. The menu ticked all the right boxes for both myself and my parents who are a little less adventurous than I am... More
