Number 7 in our list of the top ten restaurants of Australia is Peter Doyle's Est. A consistent high performer, Est. has retained 3 hat status since 2003 and 3 Gourmet Traveller stars since 2007. It's elegant décor and the harmonious and attentive service from the moment you step in sets the tone for a true fine dining experience. The food doesn't miss a beat either, dishes are based around simple and classical flavour combinations that serve to enhance the principal ingredient and is essentially based in classical French technique.
Another impressive feature is the wine matching which was confirmed by Frank Moreau taking out Gourmet Traveller's sommelier of the year for 2011. The petit fours are reason enough to order coffee at the end of year meal. All in all Est. puts on consistent, high class fine dining experience in all aspects.
