Modern Italian in the Hunter Valley

Modern contemporary Italian created by a talented team. The ethos of éRemo Restaurant is all about connecting with local producers and trialling one of a kind dishes making the éRemo experience, exceptional. That experience comes together in our Avido menu, which means “greedy” in Italian. The menu is complemented by a well-travelled wine list, including some of the Hunter Valley’s best vintages and a selection of those from further a field.

Our Chef

Spicers Guesthouse in the Hunter Valley welcomed Michael Elfwing in January this year as executive chef of éRemo restaurant, the centrepiece of the tranquil resort, surrounded by vineyards and a verdant estate. The retreat has been a Hunter Valley icon since the mid-80s, and today Spicer’s signature emphasis on locally sourced produce and naturally sustainable practices is showcased in its modern Italian cuisine.

éRemo is a destination in itself or the highlight of a country experience with the beauty and vitality of the environment being expressed, devoid of pretention, on the plate in front of you.

Elfwing came to Spicers from the Shangri-La Sydney in The Rocks, where he was executive chef, but his years in high-end hotel kitchens has been matched to time in the iconic Margaret River region at the prestigious Cape Lodge, and now in the serene vinous Hunter Valley at Spicers Guesthouse.
