A Botanic address. Overhead ivy clutches to old architectural details.
A sensory locale filled with an unmistakable scent of eucalyptus and
coffee, best experienced at first light; that time when the sun finds its
way across distinctive Victorian façades and casts a warm shadow down
characterful Melbourne streets and laneways. With a quiet uniquely
charismatic personality, the Domain Precinct is ever changing.

“There is no doubt that Melbourne is
Australia’s premier destination for dining,
and South Yarra remains the traditional
centre of that scene.”

Jacques Reymond - Restaurateur


A longstanding local institution, the compact bar,
brasserie and restaurant France-Soir is often full of
regular diners enjoying the joie de vivre as much as
the superb menu. The decades of experience imbue
every element, from the onion soup and the crème
brûlée to the impeccable French-accented service.

11 Toorak Road, South Yarra


Entrecôte is known for its signature steak frites
and vinaigrette-laced salad – a classic dish that
reflects its position opposite the Botanic Gardens.
With casually chic surrounds, complete with
potted palms and vintage lights, the style is
effortless in its elegance, much like the Domain
Precinct itself.
