      Undoubtedly my favourite restaurant in Newcastle - one that always excels in food, service and a great night out. We celebrate all our birthdays at this restaurant - and try to squeeze in other visits where possible. Fine dining indeed.

      I have to say I was a little disappointed. With all the rave reviews I was expecting more. Our Entrees were lovely but the mains were a let down. My duck was beautifully tender but unfortunately it was far too salty. My partner had the crisp pork belly & the serving was very small.The pomme frittes were just incredibly salty - someone needs to hold off on the salt there. Such a shame as I was looking forward to an exquisite meal but it just did not deliver. The service was impeccable though I must say & the restaurant is lovely.

      The very best French bistro you will find North of the Hawkesbury and would put most of its capital city cousins to shame

      I adored this restaurant and would rate it as the best in Newcastle. Thank goodness we have such a restaurant to savour!

      This a fantastic restaurant, close to the best I've experienced in Newcastle. I was concerned when I went there recently that things might be different as the chef has moved on but if anything it was better the second time round. Fantastic service from knowledgeable staff who are there when you want them but never intrusive. Can't wait to go back!

      Restaurant response:
      Hi KLM, thanks for your feedback, the food and service are still reaching the expectations, which is great. The Chef is still Mark Hosie, nothing has changed. He is just doing other things as well now. See you another time! Regards Jacqui Hosie Owner

      We have travelled extensively through Europe and lived in France for 4 months last year. This restaurant would hold its own with any of the Michelin rated restaurants we have visited. The best steak and chips around and a carefully selected wine list . Definitely Newcastles best restaurant. Maria

      Fantastic.. Try and get a seat on the verandah. The wine list is great and this has been the best restaurant experience I have had since leaving Newcastle. Five stars. It is a little expensive but worth it for a romantic evening out.

      An absolutely brilliant experience. Elegant, delicious food teamed with beautiful wine and very co-operative and delightful waiting staff made our night one to remember. One of the best restaurants in the Newcastle and hunter region.

    • Overall 9.5 |  Food 9  |  Ambience 9  |  Value 10  |  Service 10

      This small restrant has the best food and service in the hunter area. The staff are great at reading your needs, without being in you face.

      Outstanding every time. I agree that a 'hat' is definitely deserved here! Without a doubt, the best restaurant in Newcastle.

      Having been to many fine restaurants and being a restaurant owner, we found the food was of excellent quality...... The waitress on the day was friendly, professional and attentive to our needs......

      I was very much looking forward to dining at Bistro Tartine and at first the evening went well. Apparently they had made a second booking but no one had informed us and the waitress was VERY rude and rolled her eyes at us when I informed her that we were not told. I wasn't even finished my meal when we were basically kicked out! Had she apologised and explained I would feel differently, but it destroyed the whole evening. WOULD NOT RECOMMEND BISTRO TARTINE!

      Sets the benchmark for food and service in Newcastle and could easily hold its head up in the Sydney or Mebourne markets. Service excellent. The food fresh and lovingly prepared in such a way that I am sure any Frenchman would be proud of. How the SMH Good Food Guide doesn't give this place a hat is incomprehensible
