Selected by INSIDER

A rare pearl among our careful selection of the best addresses right now

INSIDER by TheFork is a carefully curated selection of top tier venues, the ones with hats, the ones that make the top dining guides, and most importantly the ones we know you love!

INSIDER tip

Former co-owner and head chef of the iconic Union Dining, Nicky Riemer champions the kitchen with her European cuisine which offers a sense of provenance and brings back flavours that often get lost in modern cooking techniques. This beautiful, honest food lends itself perfectly to the enjoyment of wine.

    Amazing good, great choice of wines, super fun music and amazing staff! A winner all around. The crab spaghetti is definitely a winner and a salami platter kicks off the night well

    Bellota never disappoints! Beautiful food, great service and a fully stocked wine shop next door. We're very luck to have this little gem as our local.

    Bellota on rainy day in Melbourne transports you to Europe quietly. The service is caring and the wine selections and cocktails delicious and the menu is exquisite.

    Always delicious food and the wine. They really should publish the vegetarian menu on the website as I would have brought my wife here previously if I had known about all of the options for her.
