Just been to the restaurant in the Empire Hotel in Beechworth - and what a treat! Food with real finesse - my lamb rump was so good and the accompanying pomegranate and almond salad was so tasty. My husband’s macadamia crusted ocean was also good. This was washed down with a local Primitivo which was pleasant.

And then we tried the desserts - cherry bombe for me and summer pudding for my husband. Both were yum!!

So great spot to eat in this very pretty historical town.

The degustation menu in the restaurant was simply fabulous. Eight courses including things such as betel leaves with a superb mocked trout and roe. This led into cured kingfish, elderflower, cucumber granita and fingerlime - what amazing taste contrasts. Next course was seared beef, chilli jam, sawtooth coriander and roasted rice - a cacophony of flavours that each set off the next. I thought it couldn’t get any better, how wrong was I? Zucchini flower stuffed with spanner crab and sweet corn salsa which again was sensational. Duck breast with pomegranate and spiced lentils lifted the taste higher and then lamb rump with ancient grains with m’hummara meant a finale to the main courses and time to think about each offering.

The ending was equally wonderful and tied everything together beautifully. D’affinois - cows milk from France accompanied with native honey over nuts...I savoured every mouthful. Finally, chocolate and cherry bombe with Turkish delight. All if this was accompanied by the Adelina Polish River South Australian 2018 Riesling and a local Fighting Gully Road 2017 Pinot Noir. What a truly gastronomic delight and an amazing way to bring in 2020.

Thank you to chef Shauna, kitchen and restaurant staff and Andy for his wine knowledge and dialogue about the food that created a top notch night.

It was a stinking hot day but cool inside (but hot upstairs on the verandah which is a shame because it has a great aspect over the streets). Lovely friendly greeting and they accepted our (very well-behaved) dog (!). Had a lovely pineapple & vodka; the boys enjoyed their beers. Live music was starting as we were leaving (Sundays); would have loved to have stayed!!
