Start with beef tartare, capers, eschalots, cornichons, egg yolk, horseradish cream and lavash, then slice your knife into perfectly cooked Wagyu rump with buttermilk pomme purée and steamed seasonal greens on the side; those not into steak can opt for chicken supreme with shiso, grapes and jus gras.

Pan-fried garlic prawns tempt to start in white wine cream sauce, with rice and salad; while steak is the name of the game for the main, think Porterhouse cooked to order, with chips, seasonal vegetables and pepper sauce, or a Cape Grim T-bone with chips, salad and mushroom sauce.
