It’s actually meat, I swear!

When a 2 hour dinner booking turns into 4, you KNOW it’s much more than just another meal.

Dinner by Heston Blumenthal is without a doubt one of Melbourne’s most revered restaurants, offering what we do-solemnley-swear is a truly remarkable dining experience!

We’ll try not to ruin too much if you’re thinking about going, but it’s what we could call ‘theatrical dining’. There’s excitement when you enter, a story and history behind the food that you eat, surprises which await, and let’s not forget the flawless service that comes with all fine dining. It offers a modern menu that captures the rich history of The Royal Courts of Britain, dating back to as far as the 13th century.

The detail, the care and the thought which has been put into each dish is phenomenal. Yes I’ll admit that some of the flavours were a little bit obscure, but it was unlike anything we’d ever tried before

  • A restaurant named one of the Top 50 Restaurants in the world for 2016,
  • A restaurant where you need to book 3 months in advance to secure a booking,
  • A restaurant owned by arguably the most innovative and creative chef of the 21st century,

So how can one justifiably describe this restaurant in words?

To put it simply, you pretty much can’t (so we’ll try do it with the help of the photos we took on this 4 hour adventure, yes A-D-V-E-N-T-U-R-E, because apparently each picture is worth 1000 words?).

(Tl;dr? Nothing we say can live up to this restaurant, you MUST visit yourself.)

Tipsy Cake with Spit Roast Pineapple ($32.00) – The softest brioche is gradually soaked in brandy and vanilla cream, then baked for hours, this was without a doubt our favourite dish of the night! When you put a piece in your mouth, it melts so gently whilst the flavours just explode, and you’re left in this moment where you’re so satisfied that you just wish Heston would hurry up and invent a bottomless Tipsy Cake…
