Top choice Australian

in South Bank

In a crisp, sparse space punctuated by black-spun aluminium lamps and a smashing wine list, clean, contemporary dishes burst with Australian confidence. Signatures include a provocative 'blood taco' packed with roasted bone marrow, mushroom and native thyme, and a brilliant twist on banana bread – black garlic bread with burnt vanilla and brown butter.

Book at least a couple of days ahead for dinner, especially if you plan on dining Friday or Saturday evening.
