Mind blowing experience. Cannot wait to return to see what Ben and the team have been up too
The food at Attica is heavenly and defies description, except to say the combinations are inspired and the flavours true, both subtle and robust. The greatest magic of all is the mastery of balance in every dish. Without doubt a life lesson in great food created by a talented innovative chef.

I enjoyed a fantastic dinner here and met Ben Shewry: now have a crush! Well, I would have if I was younger. It matters not one bit that the restaurant is suburban and not especially flashy. In fact it is refreshing in its modesty and I have to say reflects the great chef himself. He may be winning accolades but it has not gone to his head. He is modest and his head is still down with his excellent team every night in the kitchen. His snow crab is worth a booking alone. The surprising flavour bursts and textures make it my all time favourite dish EVER although it looked like an ordinary pile of snow on the plate and in that regard a little disappointing... until I hit it with my fork. OMG! I could have been struck down by a heart attack right then... the perfect last experience on Earth. The degustation menu continues to surprise and delight and unlike some other restaurants, the flavour and texture stays in the forefront, it is not all about presentation (even though much of it is pretty). I liked the honesty of the food, it is what it is and you can identify its components.
The service was outstanding. After a rare computer crash which wiped our booking, they graciously arranged a table the next night for us (much appreciated as we had travelled interstate for the experience). The staff were so apologetic that we weren't the least bit annoyed that we had travelled out to Ripponlea on the train for nothing. Now that takes a real professional on the front desk!
Consistently regarded as one of the world’s best restaurants, it goes without saying that Attica in Ripponlea has set the benchmark for fine dining in Melbourne. Holding a plethora of awards to its name, Attica’s repute for innovation, purity of flavours and sustainability well deserves high praise, with famed Chef Ben Shewry the brainchild behind the 5 and 8 course menus with matching wines. Explore the myriad of tastes and textures in dishes such as wild and cultivated crab and sorrel, King George whiting in paperbark and the well renowned vinegar ice cream. Attune to the elegance of the menu, Attica’s sophisticatedly understated interior is as satisfying as what’s delivered on the plates, using muted tones and classically set tables to fulfill a truly memorable dining experience.
Flinders Island wallaby, scorched macadamia, ground berry.
Coconut Husk Ash:
Crack the top of the coconut with a few sharp blows from a meat cleaver. Drain the coconut water (reserve for another use), then ...
A deconstructed dessert worthy of some serious praise.
Created by Ben Shewry for his beautiful daughter, Ruby.
