It has been many years since my husband and I last visited this restaurant. While the decor seems to have altered its ambience (I recall a more formal, 1980s style, but cosy atmosphere) and without linen tablecloths it seemed rather casual with its bare wood tables (with linen napkins) - but that view of Melbourne is as stunning as ever. A view that you can even see from the floor to ceiling window in the toilets!
We recently lunched at No35 - as part of the Food and Wine festival - and our table of 8 was very impressed. The pumpkin risotto was the best we have ever tasted and the creme brûlée was second to none! Service - from an engaging, friendly wait staff - was also very efficient.
We will return; as it is certainly cheaper than Shannon Bennett's Vue de Monde degustation restaurant that now inhabits the other former 'city lookout' of the Rialto. Prices are comparable to other restaurants of the same calibre, yet it is not pretentious, even if the waiters do greet you in French! Oui, magnifique!
