When I first tried Attica two years ago, it was impressive, but it wasn't convincing enough to be the best restaurant in Australia (this was the year before it became no. 21 on Pellegrino's list, topping Sydney's Quay). This second visit might have just changed my mind. Pretty much all the dishes are different, yet the excellent balance of flavours,... More

Had a wonderful night at Attica. We went on a Tuesday evening, which is their experimental menu night. And what an experiment - I have never eaten emu meat and veal tongue together and probably will never again! The other four courses were excellent. The service was absolutely seamless and it would be rated as the best we have ever... More

Another recent visit to Attica on a trip to Melbourne was highly anticipated having already experienced some of my best restaurant experiences there previously. As a lover of Ben Shewry's textural and taste variations, on this occasional I was disappointed. I realise I went on a Tuesday night which is listed as experimental - but one of my previous visits...

Attica is a "special occasion" restaurant. The service is faultless and the food's interesting and surprising. It's actually not bad value for the degustation - you get lots of little amuse bouche and you are full by the end of the meal (we were there for over 4 hours). All the little flourishes such as having two waiters serve you,... More

This place is hands down the best restaurant I have ever been to, the food was absolutely delicious. I did the vegan tasting menu and my friends did the the regular tasting menu with the wine pairing and we were all extremely satisfied with everything. Cameron was explaining all the wines and plates to us and he was absolutely wonderful!... More

We were looking forward to our first family dinner at Attica. We had the 8 course degustation menu and three of us had the matching wines. Whilst the food was good, not one plate had the wow factor that we were anticipating. The matching wines were very disappointing with the best thing about them being the story narrated by the...

I was very excited to be going to Attica for dinner. Although it was a fabulous night out, with excellent service, I wouldn't say it was the best meal I've had lately. Everything was fresh and interesting, but not great. I enjoyed all courses - except for the potato dish, which just didn't do it for me - nor the... More

The story of how Attica has developed "organically" is marvellous - most restaurants by now would have moved to a bigger fancier setting, instead Attica focuses on delivering an amazing experience in it's original setting.

A group of 4 girlfriends finally went to try Attica last Saturday night - Wish we hadn't... The food was terrible especially the pork dish - it was so tough that i had trouble cutting it with a knife. The centre was very pink & rare - so much so that blood was oozing onto the plate. My 3 foodie... More

Reviewers please reveal yourselves..... Who decided that this place even belongs in the top restaurants of the world. It was my second time (stupidly on my part) only because it was over 2 years since my last visit and having been to so many restaurants in between, I had forgotten how ordinary it was. There was nothing WOW on the... More
