This casual 12-seater fine dining spot is the place to feast on lengthy degustations heroing local produce in deliciously creative ways. Tranforming what used to be Freja's Cafe into an intimate outdoor venue with plenty of natural wood finishes, Scandi furnishings and greenery to provide cosy Nordic cottage vibes, you'll be taken on a journey of discovery from the moment you step through the door.
Featuring around seven to nine courses and set to change regularly depending on seasonal availability and how creative the head chef is feeling in the kitchen, the degustation menu is all about Australian produce prepped using Nordic cooking techniques—think pickled, salted, dried and smoked. Right now, you’ll find the likes of emu, wallaby and urchin on the summer menu, along with foraged native ingredients like desert lime, sea herbs and paperbark. You can match your meal with a selection of carefully curated wines, or just choose your preferred sip from the lengthy list.
