My husband and I visited The Point Restaurant for the first time in late November for lunch. We chose the 6 course degustation menu with premium wines. The contents of each course was well thought out and the accompanying wines were exceptional and complemented the meals perfectly. The service could not be faulted. I found The Point's degustation menu to... More

A fabulous reputation. Refurbished and reopened this amazing restaurant has changed its image from the most wonderful meat tasting platters to a delicious a la carte of the finest culinary delights you can endure. Extremely well priced for fine dining. 3 course dinner is $95 per person and the meal sizes are good. Attention to detail does not stop on... More

Dined here with another couple. Degustation menu only was available on Saturday nights which we knew when we booked.Six course option was adequate for us and the quality and taste were very good. Wine selection was excellent but prices were a bit over the top. Perhaps they could trim their selection range and this may reduce the overheads for having... More

We were meeting someone for the first time and impression was foremost in this business meeting - even if he was suffering major jet lag. Kate emailed the menu but being plain eaters, we weren't sure about the menu and almost didn't book. After discussing this with Kate on the phone, it seemed that to book was the best thing... More

We recently enjoyed a very nice lunch at The Point. We hadn't been since the new menu (and ownership I think?) Service was great with very knowledgable staff. The food was great - we shared some "snacks" before our entrees - tuna and anchovy chips. Sounds a bit odd but they were really tasty! Entrees and mains were a good... More

The view is overlooking the lake, nice view. The food was great, the oysters were good, and the fish was nicely cooked. Service was attentive and very professional. Had a great time to eat there and enjoyed the meal.

Went for Sunday lunch and ordered the four course menu. Service, friendliness and fare were top notch. Also, much flair with the presentation and theatre of some of the dishes. Great location to relax, unwind and indulge while taking in the breathtaking views of Albert Park Lake and surrounds.

We ordered the 3 course, the restaurant gave us 3 extra courses (a starter, a dessert and a petit four) and we were stuffed! The food was surprisingly good. There was theatre with some of the courses so that was very nice. We'd arrived early to see the sunset (it's winter) but couldn't see it much of the lake since... More
