Tried Miss Amelie and had a great evening. Food was great - flavours awesome - want to try others on my return visit but going to be hard to go passed the scallops. Lemon soufflé was a great finish to our evening and we will definitely be back. Loved the classy but unpretentious atmosphere of the room. See you again soon!!

From the moment you walk into Miss Amelie you can feel the atmosphere that David Kapay and his staff have created in the short time they have been up and running.

The Miss Amelie space which is situated in the old railway building in Wodonga has been transformed into such a warm, inviting and alluring space, that one can feel the passion, drive, enthusiasm and willingness of all the staff to deliver an experience that one would only expect and receive in a restaurant of this high quality in one of the capital cities.

We started our night with the Seared Scallops with butternut pumpkin, bearer noisette crumble and cured pig cheek. Simple flavours with a huge punch. The scallops were cooked to perfection.

The Cauliflower Veloute with truffled mascarpone, brioche croutons and chicken crackling delivered an intense flavour with each spoonful. I have never tasted a dish which delivers such taste.

Our choice of mains was the Wagu Ox Cheek with Celeriac cream, heritage Carrots, Carrot purée and Goose fat pangrattato, and, the seared Duck breast with Parsnip purée, poached Rhubarb, Macadamias and baby Onions.

The Wagu Ox Cheek which melted in the mouth was complimented so well with the accompaniments.

The crispy skin Duck breast which I believe was Sous-vide at 55 degrees for one hour, and later seared in the pan for flavour and crispy texture is a winner. Easy to slice through and succulent to eat. The combination of Duck, Parnsip purée, Rhubard and baby Onions when consumed as one was an explosion of flavour in the mouth.

The evening could not finish without dessert. The Lemon Soufflé which has already in Miss Amelie's short existence received such glowing reviews and appears to be the signature dish, did not disappoint. Front the very first mouthful, the citrus flavour combined with the amazing lightness was out of this world.

All in all, David and his team have made an very huge impact on the dining scene in such a short period of time.

Miss Amelie is such a breath of fresh air and the Albury/Wodonga and surrounding region are extremely lucky to have a restaurant of this high caliber on their doorstep.

Look forward to returning and trying more.

We are return customers having dined here back in early July. We had a great night then and equally as much tonight.

The decor is simple but classy. It was a cold night but the comfort heating inside made it nice and cosy. It was a busy night tonight but we could not fault the service. Staff were polite and attentive and the courses were served in a timely manner but not rushed.

Meals were presented elegantly and full of flavour. Not large serves but after three courses we were all satisfied. Can highly recommend the Wagyu Ox Cheek or the Duck breast. The Lemon Souffle was a highlight. The Wine list is not large but very classy.

Love this restaurant and will be back to try their Spring/Summer menu.

Dinner with friends, some things were great. Bit of detail in this review to try and explain why it wasn't 5 stars, in the hope that the feedback will be taken on board/ considered as helpful. Some staff friendly and helpful, others a bit standoffish, hard to pin it down but maybe as a new team they are finding their way. Arrived 10 minutes early with the exclamation of oh you're early, it was a little odd, wasn't overly welcoming and I felt confused thinking how early am I? A hello and welcome would have been a better start. May sound picky but it's the experience from start to finish when you are paying a bit more for your meal than the local pub if that makes sense . Also some of the changes to the restaurant layout made it a but less accessible and friendly if you use a wheelchair. Staff were helpful with changing some layout but there was a feeling of at first 'this is going to be a bit hard to change things around and we are busy' before a staff member sprung into action to help. There is less room in main dining area so tables have been moved to length ways and it's a bit distracting when trying to relax your meal having staff say watch your step to other customers knowing that it is in reference to the back of your wheelchair. This might seem like a small thing but it's not really when you've mentioned in the booking that you'll need enough space. I think they have lost some tables to their private function room and not only does it affect space but also perhaps priority of meals. Our entrees came out quickly but then there was a long wait for mains,I suspect due to the function room meals being prioritised over our meals that I'm pretty sure where ordered first. There were lovely service elements such as a personal presentation of the main to our guest of honour.

I went with an open mind eager to support the transition to a different owner and different restaurant but something isn't quite working. I'm always happy to pay for fine dining/ food and expect portions to be smaller but the duck dish was a bit of a let down to be honest. It was so small and lacked some flavour so it felt like penny pinching a bit to be honest. I love French food so had been looking forward to the duck but it needs a rethink. Also the chocolate orange dessert was nice but didn't seem to live up to the description on the menu. It's lovely to have this kind of restaurant in a regional area and I hope with some changes to the food and some sparkle on the service it will move from nice to excellent.
