“A culinary and sensory journey!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2012

Ritual cannot be described as a "restaurant"...it is so much more than that. It truly is a culinary and sensory journey. All of the senses are charged from the tactile, tasteful, textures to the aural and visual elegance, this is unlike any other dining experience. You have to immerse yourself in it to truly appreciate the creative genius of Carl and Keely.

“You could not stop smiling!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2012

We had just the best night at Ritual. The food we fun and thought provoking. Every little course and mouthful was bursting with flavour and texture. The tasting spoons used to decide your palate choices was an fantastic concept and even though you thought you knew what the course was going to be it was a surprise. The presentation and passion of Carl and Kellie’s entire team really made this a very memorable night in our foodie diary!

“Amazing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2012

The most enjoyable dining experience I have EVER had.

Matched wines also went down a treat.

If you're into top quality food and having an 'experience' as opposed to a 'meal'
then this place is a MUST!!!!!

“Going back again”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2012

So excited, we've just booked to visit Ritual again. This is a unique place, put your preconceived ideas aside and just go with it. Worth splashing out on the matching wines even if you're not that into your wines etc. We live locally, so know how unusual this place is for a small town. It is expensive, but it's a special place so go once if you can.

“Unbelievable Experience!!!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2012

This restaurant holds really special memories for me. My fiance proposed just before arriving at Ritual. The staff helped my partner organise the event and really went out of there way to ensure this was a special evening.
The food was amazing - never experienced anything like this before - Gastronomy at it's best!
The science behind the meals, the taste, presentation was the best i have ever seen and i have eaten at a lot of places all over the world.
What a gem in an unknown area - we will continue to go back year after year to celebrate this special occasion.
