9.1 out of 10

Well-travelled foodie owners have thoroughly revitalised this beautiful 1889 residence. There are two rooms in the main house but we prefer the three recently and luxuriously refurbished ones in the rear annexe. Predinner drinks and canapés are served in the antique-studded drawing room, and you can arrange a four-course dinner in the fabulous dining room (from $125 per person).
