Wandin Wine Bar and Diner
12 Wilderness Rd
Rothbury, Hunter Valley NSW
We were tasting some wines literally next door and this place was recommended to us. After taking a look at the menu we decided to give it a go - and we were glad we did. The food was very nice, the service fair and the decor and outlook very pleasant.
We started with the smoked salmon and crab rolls with sour cream dressing. They were very tasty. The salmon and crab combined well and the dressing lifted it all again with a tangy hit from squeezed lemon an ideal accompaniment. This comes in a serving of four for $18.00. We'd certainly have these again.
We then moved on to the crispy tortilla's with guacamole, salsa and sour cream. This was delicious. The tortilla's were so crisp and covered with a lovely spicy powder - we could have eaten these all day. The salsa was fresh and light, the bean and beef combo tasty and the guacamole tangy and delicious. This was only $16.00 - excellent value for the quantity and quality.
We finished with the salted baby squid with fresh lemon. The lovely crisp outer went well with the tender squid it coated. The combination was tasty and there was a decent sized serving. At $18.00 it was decent value.
We agreed that Wandin Wine Bar and Diner was excellent for food quality. The service was a little slow at times but possibly they were short staffed that day. It has a lovely view and is worth visiting.
