Elegant gastronomy gets a contemporary makeover at Ripponlea Food & Wine. This is a bistro with a difference.

It's the neighbourhood's favourite watering hole, and it's not hard to see why. Ripponlea leans into all the sophistication of the European bistro with rustic, white tablecloth-clad tables, exposed brick walls and charming memorabilia whilst also bringing it into 2023 with a dramatic bar, velvet booths and a lighting design that's cosy and ultra-modern at the same time. Intimate, familiar and exciting all at once, couples won't be able to resist this most romantic of destinations.

And what could be more romantic than sumptuous, Mediterranean food? Gastronomic excellence is apparent from the very moment you bite into a hand-rolled smoked chicken cigar or let a spoonful of steak tartare practically melt on your tongue, And it doesn't stop there.

The main course is where the big players come out. Fresh pasta takes centre stage with spaghetti crowned with blue swimmer crab, rigatoni topped with stracciatella and gnocchi graced by field mushrooms and a creamy confit leek sauce. As for meat, enthusiasts will find the porterhouse and eye fillet smoked, prepared and seared to perfection. And like any Italian feast, there's always room for dolci and a sweet digestive. Indeed, at Ripponlea, such indulgence is always encouraged.
