Dined here last night after many attempts to get a booking, had very high expectations but left sadly a little underwhelmed... On a positive note. We thought the service was impeccable from start to finish from all staff. Many dishes were fabulous notably the mussel, vegemite pie, taste of ripponlea tarts and an amazing apple ribbon dessert. Sadly, there were... More

We eagerly anticipated our visit to Attica ever since we saw Ben Shewry and his restaurant featured in an episode of the Netflix series, The Chef's Table. When the day finally arrived, during the third week of our five week visit to Australia from Canada, we were duly blow away by the extended tasting menu. The menu changes periodically so... More

Amazing food, attentive staff. Kangaroo was my favourite. Had the opportunity to try emu egg, not really my dish. Dessert was outstanding, first ever time eating tulip for dessert. Definitely a night to remember, expensive but worth every cent of it.

We were pretty excited to get a table here and had very high expectations after reading reviews...Attica exceeded these expectations. We enjoyed the wine matched degustation with no less than 19 different delicious little things coming out to our table. The attention to detail and the amount of work gone into each morsel was highly evident, as was the passion... More

Came from NYC where I am spoiled by a lot of the world's top restaurants and Attica is right up there with the rest! Very thought presentation, service, and story to every dish. The only problem was that I ate too much during the day and was in pain by the end...make sure to go on an empty stomach! Make... More

How do you start a review of one of the best restaurants in Australia? First up you count yourself lucky you managed to get a table on a Friday night of choice as you watched the booking engine close after 3 minutes. Next is the sensation of slight anxiousness that wow this decor is a bit gloomy and the experience... More

This restaurant makes it very clear that it's focus is on the food. The building is a non-descript shopfront in a suburban street. The room itself (though apparently some remodelling now happening) is black - walls, carpet, ceiling. There isn't a view to speak of. The food - and wine - is the focus here. Which is justified, as the... More

Have wanted to eat here for some time and wow did it deliver befitting its reputation. Food was beautifully crafted, thoughtful without being fussy. Service was divine, attentive and delivered with a touch of humor and just enough familiarity... especially loved the back yard spiders, great touch. Highly recommended dining experience.

My partner and I enjoy fine dining. Attica has a very good reputation and having never been there we were keen to go. As with many well regarded eateries a wait list means booking months in advance. We secured our booking for a weeknight evening. After being welcomed in we waited for some period and finally we were offered water... More
