Offering what it describes as a “contemporary approach to classic cuisine” in a beautiful setting in Albert Park, The Point Albert Park Lane is one of Melbourne’s most popular fine-dining restaurants.
The menu matches the above description with immaculate presentations of high-quality ingredients and fresh flavors in dishes such as lemon gnocchi, goats’ curd, and tomato beurre blanc, and Macleay Valley rabbit, braised cabbage, and cauliflower puree.
And the wine list offers a similarly refined mix of classicism and modernity, a thoroughly intelligent mix of Australian (including numerous Victorian) and international selections.
Among the many highlights of a crisply presented, easy-to-navigate list full of engaging selections are a Champagne and sparkling wine list that matches rare and mature Grande Marque Champagne with top Victorian and Tasmanian fizz producers; a fine set of Australian Shiraz and Rhône Syrah; and an “other red varieties” section that takes in Sagrantino, Aglianico, Mencía, Listán Negro, and Carmenère.
