Chef and owner Avtar Bal presents a seasonally changing menu that showcases the region’s top-quality produce in a four-course degustation.
With its glass front a stone’s throw from the water, diners can enjoy glorious tranquil views over Lake Burley Griffin. The classically elegant dining room is spacious and lends itself to an intimate meal for two, larger groups, or even a fully catered special occasion or wedding.
The menu is constantly adapted according to what’s at peak perfection. You might choose from melt-in-the-mouth venison carpaccio, punctuated with salty parmesan shavings and peppery baby rocket, or delicately crafted mushroom tortellini nestled in the umami punch of a crystal-clear Portobello consommé. Quail is presented three ways, showing each portion at its best, accompanied by a silken parsnip puree, dab of hummus and a beetroot gel. A play on the ‘fish finger’, a crumbed baton of lemon sole sits astride a creamy seafood veil and smoky potato mash.
PSST! Don’t miss the desserts, plated so artistically that they could take their place next to the works on display at the adjacent National Gallery.
