I was lucky enough to experience the NEW menu released by this lovely hotel restaurant , Was pleasantly delighted by Babbingtons overall food quality , service and restaurant feel. Upon being seated by the fantastic professional wait staff , you do not feel as though you are in a “hotel restaurant” setting instead as if you are at any well respecting bar and grill. The Vibe is nice and light , the music not to loud and manny conversations of happy customers around. The wait staff are attentive professional but also provide a personal touch from table to table. I have been fortunate to eat across many parts of the the menu and was very satisfied with meal portions and their quality. Which might I mention is a far higher quality than what you are paying for. Value for money is a guaranteed. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone who is considering going there. - Ben W - Trip Advisor

The staff were lovely. The food fantastic. Was a busy night but we certainly weren't forgotten. Babbingtons is a beautiful restaurant with beautiful food to match. No need to drive in to town for fine dining. Never disappoints. - Michelle - The Fork

Our favourite local night out for dinner. Always 5 star quality food and customer service. Menu has variety and changed frequently. A lovely bush outlook from the large scenic windows. Definitely a place for special occasions and taking friends out for a treat. - Lyndall - Trip Advisor

Will definitely be going back. Everybody had a great evening and the food was absolutely delicious. Service was both friendly and timely. Probably the best restaurant I have ever been to in Newcastle and would highly recommend it to anyone. - Karen

Have stayed here several times and the food here is fantastic. Can highly recommend their dinner menu and was also appreciative of the seafood platter delivered to the room on Xmas night. - Tripadvisor User

Breakfast is part of our package and the choices are really lovely, with a view overlooking the jungle and pool. We had dinner here one night and the ambience was lovely. Food was good and tasty, I had the best desert, home made donuts! - Tripadvisor User

This was our second trip to the BW Apollo and Babbingtons restaurant. We could not be happier with the servers and staff. The food is great, not only for dinner but also the breakfast buffet should not be missed. - Trip Advisor User

I love the view and adored the view! Menu suited all tastes, my chicken was divine. My waitress was friendly and efficient. The restaurant has large windows which look out onto some gum trees making it a lovely view to enjoy whilst enjoying the food and wine. I will be back - jeffmonicabrown - Tripadvisor
