It's always easy to just say a place is lousy and expensive but allow me to elaborate my poor dining experience at this establishment. 1. The chef to me seems to be somewhat lazy and not too creative. We had a 10 course menu and if you've had a meal like that before, it is a challenge to create a... More

Wow!! Five star service, smellier, finest dining for a 4 star price as this restaurant regains patronage since refurbishment. Located on Albert Park Lake, northern side behind MSAC, you will require a cab to reach. Stairs to top level of fine dining, banquet room, small events room or downstairs to an Asian restaurant. Recently renovated, this restaurant formerly reknown for... More

Hidden Jade, downstairs at The Point next to Albert Park Lake is the best Chinese food in Albert Park and perhaps Melbourne. We went for yum cha but the a la carte menu is irresistable. We had Peking duck and steamed veges and it was all great. Good wine list but not enough Tassie pinots. Going back for Christmas lunch... More

We had our office Christmas lunch in a private room...great views, amazing service and wonderful food. The prices for the wines are a bit steep! Quite a bit more of depth to the menu and very well presented. Worth climbing the spiral staircase to get an even better view from the platform.

Great lake view and an awesome place for special celebrations. Delicious and creative dishes from the chef that showcased Australia's produce. As tourists, the dishes surprised us in a lovely way. Dessert could be further improved. But all in all, a great dinner. Thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. :)

My husband and I visited The Point Restaurant for the first time in late November for lunch. We chose the 6 course degustation menu with premium wines. The contents of each course was well thought out and the accompanying wines were exceptional and complemented the meals perfectly. The service could not be faulted. I found The Point's degustation menu to... More

A fabulous reputation. Refurbished and reopened this amazing restaurant has changed its image from the most wonderful meat tasting platters to a delicious a la carte of the finest culinary delights you can endure. Extremely well priced for fine dining. 3 course dinner is $95 per person and the meal sizes are good. Attention to detail does not stop on... More

Dined here with another couple. Degustation menu only was available on Saturday nights which we knew when we booked.Six course option was adequate for us and the quality and taste were very good. Wine selection was excellent but prices were a bit over the top. Perhaps they could trim their selection range and this may reduce the overheads for having... More

We were meeting someone for the first time and impression was foremost in this business meeting - even if he was suffering major jet lag. Kate emailed the menu but being plain eaters, we weren't sure about the menu and almost didn't book. After discussing this with Kate on the phone, it seemed that to book was the best thing... More
