About Syracuse Restaurant & Wine Bar

Tucked down a Melbourne laneway, Syracuse Restaurant & Wine Bar evokes a wholly other time and place. The ornate archways, soaring ceilings and curving chandeliers of a 19th century bank create a stunning impression of grandeur, though soft lighting and an assortment of tables and chairs keep the mood romantic and welcoming. Wine bottles displayed in various nooks and crannies hint at Syracuse’s vast and varied wine selection, which the food menu is designed to match. Chicken liver parfait, honey, pear and ginger chutney may be sampled as aperitifs, before tempting mains of steamed wild barramundi with nettle risotto and bourguignon garnish. Impressive desserts like Let the Sunshine In with brioche ‘pain perdu’, mandarin ice cream, cardamom and gold, finish off the meal well.

Tucked away in a laneway of Melbourne city, this restaurant presents a nice environment with great food. Service is good and the staff are attentive. The winelist is excellent. This would have to be one of my favorite restaurants.
