Woodland House

Modern Australian in South Yarra, Prahran & Windsor

In a glorious Victorian villa, Woodland House is home turf for young-gun chefs Thomas Woods and Hayden McFarland, former sous chefs for lauded Melbourne restaurateur Jacques Reymond. The menu spotlights quality local produce, cooked confidently and creatively in dishes like wood-roasted mussels with asparagus and salted yolk. Thursday and Friday offer a good-value three-course lunch with a glass of wine for $55.

Sunday lunch also offers a good deal: a chef's set menu of four/six courses for $80/110.
