For culinary travellers Melbourne offers one of the most unique dining experiences in the world. If you are visiting Melbourne for the first time, make sure to visit some fabulous restaurants and experience the unforgettable culinary delights that this city has to offer. Take a look below for our top recommendations on where to eat in Melbourne.

 

Attica

Ben Shewry is the New-Zealand born chef at this authentic restaurant where his 55-seat paradise is a favourite amongst food lovers all over the world. Not only is this trendy spot considered a top restaurant in Melbourne, Attica was voted the Best Restaurant in Australasia for 2017 as well as taking the No.32 spot on ‘The World’s 50 Best Restaurants’ list.

 

Drawing inspiration from his childhood, Ben combines traditional cooking styles with modern ingredients to deliver a culinary fusion like no other. His signature dish includes a Virginia Rose potato, peeled, dressed, and steamed in the earth in which it was grown, an improvisation of the traditional Maori cooking method hangi. And of course, there is Ben’s favoured Salted Red Kangaroo and Bunya Bunya and Pukeko’s Egg to experience also.
