When we booked, we specified our special requirements (no gluten or dairy), which the staff confirmed on arrival. They made it seem it was no problem at all to cater for us. The food was simply wonderful and the service very attentive. We went on a Tuesday, which is the 4-course, Dine by Donation night. Now we want to go... More

My partner surprised me with dinner here for our anniversary. As he worked in the industry, this was somewhere he wanted to go and experience and we weren't let down. On arrival we were greeting by one of the wait staff who showed us to our table, pulling out my chair for me. Once seated he explained about the 9... More

Absolutely outstanding evening thanks to Michael and his Team at Merediths. You took me on an educational culinary journey and a journey that we both will remember for years to come. Your team made our Anniversary a very special moment so thank you from the bottom of our hearts. The 9 course degustation was flawless. From the Amuse Bouche to... More

This would be one of our best dining experiences on this planet. The service, attention and décor was first class. But the star of the evening was the menu - the best ingredients and such imagination and attention has been put into every part of each unique dish. We can't wait until our next time at Merediths

This meal was a taste sensation from start to finish. My taste buds have never experienced anything like it. Simply the best meal I have ever had at a restaurant. The service was amazing. Gorgeous atmosphere and amazing staff. The whole night was magical.

What a wonderful night. After a few disappointing experiences in the past with fine dining both my partner and I were on the fence, but we went with an open mind. And wow, what an evening. From the moment you walk through the door, you feel completely welcomed as if you were walking into your friend’s home. The waiter was... More

As a small group of 3 we visited Merediths for their Friday 4 course degustation menu with a glass of Tattinger. The glass turned into a couple and the day went from good to great. The staff were very attentive and described well each inventive course. We were surprised at the mixes of ingredients that wouldn't normally seem to make... More

Very much enjoyed a long lunch at Merediths beginning with a lovely glass of champagne and absolutely perfect ceviche dish. Our initial welcome could have been warmer but was much made up for with outstanding service in the restaurant. A lovely calming environment with inventive, aesthetically beautiful and fulfilling food. Intend to return for more!

Our lovely French waiter (Friday 15 July) made everything perfect, service, wine & food was fantastic. Parking is impossible so we each spent some time trying to find a nearby park longer than 60mins, therefore we arrived a bit flustered from running around in the wind and rain only to have a blonde woman with a face like thunder bark...
