Dinner by Heston Blumenthal

The first of legendary chef Heston Blumenthal’s restaurant to open outside of the UK. A bit less ‘Alice in Wonderland’ than the Fat Duck, but this place will blow the living daylights out of you with its breathtaking location, the amazingly sleek decor and the attention to little details. The menu is a delectable walk through the history of British gastronomy. And as always, Heston does not disappoint one bit, making this one of the best restaurants in Melbourne

“Melbourne’s best sushi”, as claimed by Time Out’s Larissa Dubecki. Another candidate of our list in the best restaurants in Melbourne is Minamishima. Minamishima is the restaurant which serves the omakase of Chef Koichi Minamishima. There is no a-la-carte menu; the omakase means that the chef will take you on a gastronomical trek. And boy, is Koichi Minamishima great at it. The place is very intimate with a long bar, where the chef individually serves the seating on the long bar. If you want to picture Minamishima, think elegant, understated decor, think traditional, think sake, and think delicious.

Cuisine: Japanese, Sushi
