The set menu is absolutely lovely... lots of small dishes, followed by a generous serving of steak and mushrooms. The house bread was delicious and wines very reasonable. Try the Yarra valley can sauv recommended with the beef... It's incredible

My wife and I really enjoyed the 5 course Early Autumn set menu with matched wines. Each dish was flavoursome and beautifully balanced and the wines complimented them well. The staff were friendly and the venue is well laid out so that you don't feel like you have been shoehorned into the room. The decor is minimalist and functional but in a pleasing way. We had only one small grievance. The wine for the desert course did not arrive until after we inquired about it and we had finished desert by that time. The staff apologised and brought the wine not long after.

Another lovely dinner at No.1 Bent Street, always worth it especially for the bread and rice pudding!
