You’ll enjoy fine modern Australian dining at its best with the Rusty Fig. Previously known for their truffles, the new restaurant expands on that experience, with a solid six course Degustation Menu that just keeps going! From juicy Shark Bay scallops to tender Manjimup Wagyu truffle steak, the menu caters for many palates. A solid standout is the airy burnt orange souffle. Starting with a warm souffle, your server will place a ball of chocolate in the middle, allowing the delightful hot and cold experience on your tongue. A favourite we recommend.
