    OMG how amazing that these guys are doing home delivery! Pricey but totally worth it!

    Cheese cake was very tasty and very soft, just a little too creamy for me. Thank you Attica for giving us the opportunity to taste your products during this period. We bought some wine as well, excellent selection. I wish you could keep this take away store open for longer?- we live close by so it is very convenient for us.

    Loved the home delivery. Lamb shoulder was succulent, sauce delicious, accompaniments provided the usual earthy flavours we have come to expect from Attica. Feel criticisms of temperature are a little unfair, as very hard to keep food hot for travel. Acceptable temperature achievable without spoiling, with few minutes in oven and well warmed plates.Flight of the Bees trifle version worked well with delicious honey flavours.

    Came here for my partner's 25th birthday. Amazing food, drink and atmosphere. Loved how they gave us a special birthday cake made using Ben's grandma's recipe! Awesome to see Ben dining on the day there as well! Vegetarian degustation was amazing and full of weird, wonderful and expected flavours! Wish the vegetarian degustation was slightly cheaper than the non vegetarian counterpart but still well worth the trip and dining experience.

    Attica at home exceeded our expectations, the food was delicious and perfect for a special event.

    Ordered takeaway & they arrived at 6.30 ON THE DOT! Lasagne was awesome but the real stand outs were the garlic bread & baked cheesecake, I’m still dreaming about them!

    Definite a must visit if you live in or visit Australia! To dine in Attica is to experience Native Australian elements at its core and understanding our land as well as the unique produce it cultivates. ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ Native ingredients are harder to work with because they are more difficult to harness and there’s a huge lack of information on them.⁣ Attica strives to provide the experience of discovering what Native Australia has to offer ✅ ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ Wanted to say a special thanks for Ben and Attica for this memorable experience and it was great to be more cultured with what Australia has to offer.

    Been twice now, go into it with an open mind, as they have a Very different, but brilliant, take on good food!

    One of only 3, 3 hat restaurants in Melbourne Attica did not fail to impress. It had changed ambience and format since we were last there but the innovation and quality of cooking and presentation remain of the highest order. Our favourite dishes of the 14 on offer were the emu pate, the Marron and the kangaroo. The most unexpected was the Sous vide crocodile ribs with honey. Service was good although lacked continuity.

    Fantastic experience! Was able to taste a variety of different flavours and textures using uncommon ingredients

    Amazing and tasty food. My new favorite restaurant in Australia

  • 5James P. 1 year ago
    Hands-down the best dining experience of my life! The love, respect and dedication these guys have for their suppliers, ingredients, staff and customers is inspirational. I loved it!

  • 5Aurelyn J. 1 year ago
    Yummmmm.. favourite place in Melbourne

  • 5Nathan C. 1 year ago
    Incredible indulgence using local produce, with amazing staff. Expensive, of course, but an experience not to be missed if you love fine dining and wonderful, rustic, Aussie cuisine.

  • 5N. 1 year ago
    What an extraordinary dining experience with exceptional down to earch service. Every course was an adventure for the eyes and an extravaganza for the taste buds. Loved the bush tucker theme and always partial to a few ants!

    We got the Attica At Home for a special occasion given the lockdown restrictions. Great idea being taken up by these top restaurants, I’ve tried a few and Attica executed it especially well. I picked it up from the shop together with an explanation of what all the bags they provided are for (which ones go in the fridge etc). Everything was so easy to do with minimal effort, some dishes are served where you can eat straight out of the bowl and others you need to plate yourself. The instructions you are provided are detailed and easy to follow (given even I managed it), they tell you the order to have everything including the drinks. Overall it was a really fun experience that we made last over a few hours, very different than being in the restaurant and the dishes were all still exceptional. It’s definitely on the pricier end but it also includes drinks and the red wine that is provided is quite a good drop. Unfortunately we got to the end and realised the tea was missed out the bag but it was quite minor in the grand scheme of things, I expect because we were one of the first to try this pack. In summary, would highly recommend Attica at Home if you’re looking to do something special during lockdown that doesn’t require much effort but tastes amazing.

    Absolutely beautiful meal with Attica at Home that my husband treated me to for my birthday. So fortunate we can still have such an amazing food experience in these bizarre times, thank you Attica. We popped each dish in the microwave for 30 sec as recommended and it was perfection.

  • 5D. 1 year ago
    One of the top restaurants in the world. Using unusual Australian local ingredients to create an unique dinning experience. Although it is a degustation menu, each dish comes out reasonably fast and well presented. The water cup and most plates are very different to what you can find in a normal restaurant hence enhance the experience. At dessert time, you are invited to visit their "backyard" where chef creates custom drink and ice cream dessert. Services are very good to honour the world top restaurant title.

    OMG. Dear God that is good food!! We had the full “at home” degustation. Ben Shrewy you are a genius. Your team is exemplary. The meal was amazing. Easy to assemble. Wonderful experience. My wife’s favourite was the pumpkin. Mine was the potato. Holy Toledo!!!

  • 5Sunaina N. 10 months ago
    Incredible! Delicious food with every component complimenting the other. An absolute culinary delight! I ordered the attica modern menu from the attica at home range. Highly recommend.

  • 5Guy J. 1 year ago
    A sensational restaurant. The best Melbourne has to offer and one of the world's best fine dining experiences. This was my second visit after 3 years and it's better than ever. One to add to the bucket list and enjoy on any occasion to want to make special.

    Visited on a trip to Aus from the UK with my mum. So excited to get a reservation and lived up to our expectations. Excellent food and we got to try lots of unusual things. Loved being taken outside. Great drinks and friendly relaxed service. Highly recommended.

    We have fine dining tasting menu with wine matching at home. Everything is great, and instruction is very clear. We love the food and drink.

  • 5Bianca D. 9 months ago
    Attica at Home is amazing. I ordered the vegetarian lasagne with cocktails. WOW! Such great value, large portions, the food is amazing. Will probably order next weekend again. THANKS GUYS!

  • 5Kate M. 9 months ago
    Attica at Home is an amazing experience. Delivered by wait staff wearing masks, detailed instructions to heat and serve. Food portioned nicely and obviously delicious. Incredible value.

  • 5Evans C. 10 months ago
    We did the Attica at home for our anniversary last night and every detail was thought out. It was a wonderful experience and absolutely delicious. Highly recommend and can’t wait to go in person when things open back up.

    We had the Attica tasting menu last night at home. We've wanted to go to Attica for years and this was our chance. Living in Point Cook we missed out the postcodes for delivery, so met our delivery driver in Port Melbourne. She was 2 mins early, and she must be Attica's usual wait staff as her customer experience delivery was exceptional; she was friendly, went out of her way to be helpful and described what to do with eat meal. She was brilliant! We got home, followed our instructions and put on the 'Attica at Home' spotify playlist and poured ourselves the cocktails. Well done on 'pivoting' during the pandemic, and providing such a wonderful experience. We wish you all the best during covid and hope you continue to grow and thrive. And to the others leaving negative reviews about trivial things such as the temperature of meals, please stop and consider what a small business is going through in the current climate and maybe have a chat to them first before giving them a kick in the guts online.

    Great service. Fabulous taste, we always enjoy here whenever visit.

  • 4Mark C. 11 months ago
    The modern meal for two is probably worth 3 stars as it was solid without being outstanding (the portions are small and the flavours are on the bland side), but the sticky pineapple pudding was amazing. The flavours were sophisticated and unique. I don't usually like cake but isn't just any cake. If the rest of the meal had flavours like this then it would have been 5 stars all round

  • 4Maral M. 11 months ago
    very nice At home menu, the cocktails were great, the instructions were perfect with minimum work needed but the main was a relatively small portion (specially compared to the size of dessert).

  • 4V M. 1 year ago
    Some interesting ingredients and combinations. Must try if you’re adventurous with food. Impeccable service, great decor.

  • 4Leo G. 11 months ago
    Had some take aways from here a while Ago to be honest the portions are very small compaired to price butt tastes good not a bad experience. Would recommend either to make the portions bigger or prices Lower.

  • 4Ben S. 1 year ago
    Awesome setting, great service, fun wine list, food just a bit too experimental. Have been to other Top 50 restaurants around the world, which I enjoyed more. Focus on local ingredients is great, but some of the dishes were unbalanced and not tasty.

  • 3Mazda M. 9 months ago
    Ordered the 3 course meal: potato, lamb and the trifle. I picked it up and it was ready 5 min earlier which was a surprise, well packaged. The savoury portions were smaller than I expected. In terms of flavour; the lamb tasted nice (slightly dry, difficult to say whether related to being takeaway), the potato didn't really taste like a potato (the outside tasted sweet??? I'm not sure it was supposed to be that?). The trifle ruined it though - was extremely sweet! Difficult to finish the one portion of trifle. Jury's out; given the amount of money I paid for it. Probably wouldn't get takeaway again. I was however comparing it to the takeaway meal from Epocha the day before which was reasonably priced and extremely tasty!

  • 2Alex L. 1 year ago
    We did the Attica Modern at home and the serving size was remarkably small. We had to get a pizza afterwards as we were still starving. Premium wine was ok but quite young considering the price tag. Would certainly recommend saving your money and supporting a different local option

  • 2Michelle L. 1 year ago
    Attica At Home: was very surprised at how small the portions were. The food was 30 mins late, was cold, and the ice cream had melted. Wanted to contact someone about delivery status but the phone number on the website only manned until 5pm. No way of contacting anyone. I'm sure the dine in experience will feel much more luxurious, but the take away experience is quite different to what is presented on the beautiful pictures on the website.

  • 2Prasuk J. 11 months ago
    Have been meaning to try Attica, amongst worlds top 50 restaurants, for a long time, nearly 6 years maybe but really disappointed with eating a boiled potato with curd. I was expecting to be blown away with flavours but sadly potato was bland, curd had a lot of flavor, costs cheese and probably what kept the dish together but overall for me dish was a let down. I had eggplant dish for mains which was cooked really well, had side spinach salad and a puree but i made the mistake of adding the sour vinegar sauce on top which completely unbalanced the flavours and once again was left with unpleasant combinations of flavours. Dessert was a trifle, not too sweet and not overpowering; sponge cake was nice and soft with with gorgeous fresh red berries on the top. I truely wish I had enjoyed my meal but just missed the mark, I will however, try to dine in one day too see if I enjoy the food as much as other people and hopefully give them 5 stars.

  • 1Jacquie P. 1 year ago
    Really disappointed! The restaurant, service and staff were outstanding however the food was below average. We have eaten at Lumi, Dinner by Heston, Six Penny and Momofuku. At each of these restaurant it was hard to pick a favorite dish. At Attica we struggled to choose a dish we liked. The finger lime and honey dessert was inedible as was melon juice.
