Meet the Chef

Danielle champions a produce-driven philosophy. Raised in Miami by Cuban-born parents, Danielle never had chef intentions, but grew up cooking with her grandma and mum. Enrolling in cooking school, Danielle decided to pursue her passion for food, completing an internship at The French Laundry in California. Their seasonal approach to cooking proved very instrumental in her overall development as a chef. A holiday to Australia then turned into an exciting new opportunity with Merivale.

    Hotel Centennial is a great place to meet up with friends. The food is reliably good and the service is also friendly. We were a bit disappointed to find a fairly hefty Sunday surcharge applied - so won’t be back on a Sunday as it made the meal very expensive.

    Choice of champagne by the glass was only 3. Main meal cost is expensive when side dishes are needed to complete your meal Signature waffle dessert not as good as it used to be :-(

    Unfortunately there was a very strong odour of sewer or rotten egg or a gas leak which most of the patrons found off putting whilst eating their meal. We were told that it was coming from outside. Hopefully it has been rectified and I would definitely eat there again.

    We love the modern fresh update to the decor. The menu is delicious. We enjoyed a flatbread to start and then had porchetta and the pasta. Very enjoyable meal.
