Guillaume

Down a leafy street lined with heritage federation terraces, French-born chef Guillaume Brahimi has created a sophisticated two-storey establishment that delivers a luxurious fine- dining experience in a relaxed atmosphere.
Brahimi relishes in serving up contemporary French cuisine proudly and without compromise. He trained under Joël Robuchon and his dishes bring flashbacks of the old master. Our starter arrives in a sea urchin shell and inside, lobster and urchin gonads are perfectly cooked, sprinkled with rosemary, bathed in foam and topped with trout roe and caviar. Mains include basil-infused tuna, roasted quail and duck, butter-poached marron and Wagyu brisket. The winning side is a heavenly Paris mash.
Brahimi describes his restaurant as suited to a ‘special occasion’ and the price tag reflects this. The value comes in the inclusion of water, bread, home-churned butter and salad, as well as creative amuse bouche, snacks and pre dessert. The wine list (45 pages) is superb and there are plenty of reasonably priced drops. Our tip: find a special celebration, as every single delicious morsel is well worth the splurge.
