Had 16 courses, how could i ate so much? Portion is very very small is about experiencing many good flavour out of every dishes. Is pricey but very impressive presentation that something you won't forget. Good location and good view from the top of Rialto

The ambience and 360 degree view are amazing but the food quality was average. Having experienced the 'theatre' of dining at Heston B's earlier this year, and other leading restaurants in Australia & overseas, the food quality and imagination failed to meet our expectations.

We have eaten degustation meals around the world and this was up there with the very best. The staff were very attentive and well trained. The presentation of the food was novel and quirky but not ott. The food was to die for. Each dish a combination of colour, texture and taste. Tiny but heh, this is degustation ! We were past satisfied when finished. We are not drinkers so I won't comment on the wines although those who did drink were happy with their choice. I asked for a non alcoholic cocktail to start with and it was delicious.
The view of the kitchen was interesting and the view of Melbourne at night stunning.

We had a fabulous meal and couldn't fault the quality of the food.
Service was friendly, the setting was lovely and the views were spectacular.

The food was gorgeous - faultless in fact, but in terms of the overall experience, I couldn't go the extra star.
The only reason I didn't give 5 stars is that in a 2 hour sitting, 8 courses just felt a little rushed. We didn't really have time to savor each course before the next arrived. An extra 10 mins between each would have been perfect.

With the limited time for our sitting, we really didn't get a chance to go through the 1000+ wines in the book and had to rely on the waiter's recommendation. That's OK, but just...an extra few mins...to catch our breath, relax into the atmosphere, choose a nice wine to start with before the first course arrives makes a huge difference.

Overall, a lovely night out. I wish our sitting allowed more time to enjoy it.
