We asked our new Consultant Executive chef Justin Wise a few quick questions to share with you all!

Would have to be the Murray Cod, how can you go wrong with an amazing native Australian fish and lobster live from Port Campbell?

Jean-Luc Mader Pinot Blanc 2012 from France, matched with our potato and artichoke dish, its always such a hard ingredient to match with wine.

I started cooking when I was 13 in a kitchen in Wangaratta under my mentor chef, Peter Hoppach, I stayed until I finished my apprenticeship when I was 23. I then moved to Melbourne to start my career here.
