French and Asian flavors blend delightfully at this glamorous, century-old Victorian mansion turned eatery, which has collected some prestigious awards in recent years. The wine list is the stuff an oenophile dreams of, and the Burgundian-born chef uses the finest Australian produce to create such new classics as wild kingfish with a bread nougatine, Iberian ham, and saffron espuma, or tender octopus and dried miso, green pea and ginger dressing. The eight-course degustation
menu (A$175), which can be paired with wines (A$270), is justly famous; there's a vegetarian degustation menu too. You can also choose a three-, four-, and five-course menu (ranging from A$105 to A$160). Single à la carte dishes are not available.

Service towards the end was a complete shocker and let down to what we thought was a lovely evening making our way through the degustation menu. As we got up to settle over bill, we were deeply insulted by the statement that came from the waiter asking us "if we were planning to run away without paying". We settled the billed as intended and walk out there completely disappointed that a lovely evening was ruined by the insensitive action.
