We were a table of eight and had amazing service and amazing food.
Well worth the wait to get in, lovely finale for 2021. Food was sensational and we were taken on a foodies journey of delicate portions of tastes

It's true what they say ... this really is a danceathon in your mouth. Michael has an uncanny ability to turn what looks like very little into something outstanding. There isn't one thing on the menu that we didn't "oohhh" and "ahhh" about and if...you come to Beechworth, this is a must!!More
We stayed in the Managers Residence which is above the restaurant, and dined last weekend. It was an AWESOME get-away !! The best we have ever had. The accommodation was heritage luxury. The 17 course Japanese inspired food was superb. At times we had the...incredible aromas from the kitchen wafting upstairs, mmmm. This is the perfect special occasion romantic adventure. Put it on your bucket list.More
Dined on a Sunday night. Due to COVID restrictions there were two sittings of only 10 diners in each. Despite the restrictions, the whole experience was unforgettably excellent. Staff were attentive, and the food was just so good - 16 small dishes over four courses,...each dish presented with exquisite attention to detail. Yes, it is expensive, but when you see what they do, the cost is definitely warranted. More than worth the 4 hour drive to get there.More
The degustation menu was Japanese Bento Box style, but with more innovative and interesting dishes. There were 18 dishes in all, in 4 groups of 6, 5, 4, and 3. As you can imagine, some were better than others. My favourites were the Kingfish sashimi...with finely diced apple in a ponzu sauce, Duck ham with pickled nectarine, Baked celeriac with black bean dressing, Chocolate mousse with candied Orange and sesame brittle. My least favourite were Lacto fermented pumpkin and Brussel sprouts salad.
There was very extensive wine list, including some interesting local wines by the glass. Service was helpful and flawless. Pricey but worth it. Recommended.More
This is a very special dining experience. Group of 8 friends booked for the amazing set menu. This comprised a series of bento boxes. Every dish was delicious and carefully prepared and impeccably presented.
Our weekend getaways in Beechworth have been based on being able to indulge at Provenance. We have enjoyed three dinners here and Provenance has always delivered a special night....beautifully prepared dishes, excellent wines (we stick with local wines from Giaconda and Savaterre and are highly...suggestable come dessert wine time), and exceptional service.
Last time, we stayed for two nights in one of Provenance's rooms that backs onto their garden. Michael Ryan's attention to detail in his restaurant also translated to the rooms. Thoughtful and delicious food for breakfast, well decorated and extremely comfortable rooms. We found small touches that delivered the feeling of a luxurious weekend.
We were also able to purchase a couple of jars of their burned miso butter to take home along with many other condiments and Michael gave us a polystyrene box to keep our goodies chilled as we meandered back to Melbourne.
We will continue making trips to Beechworth just to dine at Provenance.More
