Booked a table on the day thanks to someone's cancellation made my birthday celebrations very special. We loved our dinner with my fav being the taro, coconut and crab dish - beautiful. Excellent waiter who was very attentive at the right times. Thoroughly enjoyed our experience (despite the rude neighbouring tables always on their phones - time and place).

Food was fine- my cheeks didn't hurt from smiling (which is my sign of a great eating experience). Mostly I am just sick of pretentious French waitstaff. Loved the first two dishes and the champagne, oh the champagne! But the main and dessert were fine but not amazing.

I was taken to this restaurant recently by a business colleage and probably had the good fortune not to see the account. It was my first visit here and was very impressed. Quite plush intimate surroundings. We were seated and greeted efficiently We had booked the 9 course degustation. The service was excelent and the food equally good. Really enjoyable... More

This was our first dining experience at Merediths. My husband and I enjoyed the five course degustation with matching wines. The food was beautifully presented, amazing flavour combinations and they were happy to cater to my dietary requests. The service was impeccable and we had great evening. We also love the fact that Meredith's actively supports charities in the local... More

Being treated to a dual belated birthday dinner from Mum, this was a sensational dinner and menu. Great menu with accompanying wines for a degustation experience! Managed to get a signed menu from Michael Meredith himself which was a very nice touch. Also managed to grab 15 minutes with him at the end of the night to talk about his... More

In a city where everybody follows the latest to open, Meredith's might be seen as a little passe, but it sticks to the formula it believes in. By just doing a degustation menu the kitchen can put more effort into each dish. It is clear from other reviews that this is a restaurant that divides people, maybe it's the lack... More

Don't believe the hype... Food was trying to hard and service was below average. Will never recommend this resturant and can't understand why it wins awards.

Two or three times a year we treat ourselves to a degustation night out and this was the first time we had ventured to Merediths. Dare I say it but nith my wife and I agreed the food was far superior to the French Cafe (which we loved) and on par with The Grove (which was also an amazing surpise).... More

Aye here about 2 years ago and found it was amazing! Hoping to replicate the experience we dined again. Unfortunately it was a bit of a let down. To start we were sitting so close to the next couple I can hear their entire conversation! The restaurant tried to fit in too many tables sacrificing privacy. Had the degustation with... More

Perhaps the best eating experience I've ever had. The food was great and the service was first class.One little, slight negative being that the seats are very close together.
