The best way to know what to expect (or not), is to read the reviews for the CREATIVE DEPARTMENT. Here’s one we think describes it pretty well:

If I could give more than 5 stars I would! My sister and I were lucky enough to get tickets to the Melbourne sitting and it was unbelievable. The team involved were so passionate and knowledgable, and the whole night had an atmosphere of theatre and excitement. Every dish that came out was beautifully balanced and absolutely delicious, even the more savoury courses of the night. I’ve never eaten food packed with so much intense flavour, and the beautiful textures honestly blew me away. It was worth every dollar and would do it again in the heartbeat. Thank you to the Creative Department for an unforgettable experience and one I will cherish for a long time to come!
