Dinner by Heston exceeded all my expectations and has ended up being one of the best dining experiences I’ve had in Melbourne. Everything was perfect. The atmosphere of the restaurant is unpretentious and casual, the service was attentive and prompt and the food was amazing. I would highly recommend going to Dinner by Heston, so much so that I’m re-visiting in March!
Great thing about the menu is that it’s a la carte, so you can pick the courses you want. I was here with a party of 5, so we had a chance to see most of the dishes that were on the menu. Impressively, all the entrees and mains were winners.
Food highlights: Meat Fruit (classic) , Rice & Flesh (super tasty), Mash Potato (as good as Joel Rubechon), Powdered Duck Breast (amazing – I can’t begin to imagine how they cooked it so well) and Tipsy Cake (watching that pineapple slow roast speaks volumes for how amazing this tastes).
Maybe give a miss: Fries (nothing out of the ordinary), Spring Tart (was nice, but compared to other desserts a bit dull).
Enjoy the pictures!
