The Point

The Point has always been one of Melbourne’s best spots for romantic dining.  The view of the city and the lake along with the contemporary dining room have been a long standing favourite for the in the know diners in Melbourne.  New owners have now placed their stamp on this iconic Melbourne restaurant and their aim is to create a restaurant that stands out above the rest.  The menu has come up aces with chef Andrew Harmer who has a rare artistic gift.  His creations are intricate and engaging with flavours that delight and surprise.  Every course was simply sensational. Match this with probably the best wine list and superb service and you have an iconic Melbourne restaurant that is now a standout for a superb experience.  Make sure you note the dining room’s wine wall which displays wine valued at a million dollars!

The photos speak for themselves, with sunset being one the star attractions at the restaurant.  This does not mean though that The Point relies solely on their view in order to impress their guests.  The degustation menu or a la carte offering equally match the jaw dropping vistas.  The view simply adds to the experience and that makes The Point one of my top pics for a romantic night out on the town.

For a special night out there are few places in Melbourne that can match this restaurant’s elegance and sophistication.

My tip ensure you reserve a table at sunset for a very romantic evening!

The Point is located at Aquatic Drive, Albert Park Lake (Melways ref 2K G6) and can be contacted on 03 9682 5566.   The Point is open for lunch and dinner 7 days.
