Fodor's Review

At this swanky eatery tables are set with fine linens and crystal, and huge windows look out over the sparkling waters of Lake Burley Griffin. The menu cleverly blends French and Mod-Oz influences with dishes such as duck breast and pressed leg confit with potatoes and rosemary gratin and sautéed sweet cabbage, and a luscious dessert of passion-fruit soufflé and coconut–and–kaffir lime sorbet. Those wishing to linger over lunch or dinner might opt for the three-course A$60 lunch or four-course A$88 dinner. An impressive wine list offers many by-the-glass vintages.
