Restaurant Review: Fenix Richmond (Gary Mehigan)

On my recent trip to Melbourne I visited famous Masterchef host Gary Mehigan's restaurant Fenix. It is just 2km's from Melbourne CBD or 15 minutes by tram (catch the 109 tram from Collins St to stop 25). The restaurant is set right on the Yarra River in Richmond.
The day we went it was a beautiful summers day so we decided to sit outside with a view of the river.

The attentive wait-staff brought us some water and menu's with great choices!

We took a liking to the express lunch menu, where you get two courses with a glass of house wine, 300ml tap beer, juice or soft drink for just $35, extra courses for $15 (see the menu choices here). We arrived super hungry and decided to do 3 courses (entrée, main and dessert for only $50!).

After we had ordered they brought out some home-made warm bread and butter.

ENTREE:
For entrée my partner ordered the baby beetroot salad with Persian feta & cos lettuce.
I ordered the watermelon & goats curd salad with dill. Both of these salads were light and fresh!

MAIN:
For main course my parner ordered the slow cooked pork belly with summer squash & oregano.
and I decided on the fish pie with potato & parmesan crust. Again really great produce and cooked really well.

DESSERT:
 For dessert my parner decided to have the hot doughnuts with lemon curd & sweet lemon syrup.
and I had the passion fruit tart with clotted cream. This dessert was absolutely amazing, and the perfect way to finish the meal.


I would highly recommend this restaurant if you are in Melbourne, 10 out of 10! Check out the Fenix website here for bookings and full menu's.

  13. Birthday experience 12th Feb 2012

    Having returned from our holiday recently my wife went on the Fenix site to convey our experience. Having sent the email from the site the automated response came up with a comment that the email would be replied to.

    Last night I watched the current viewing of master chef (childrens) which reminded me that no response had been forth coming.

    Maybe the site does not work??

    Anyway on the 12th my wife & 2 daughters visited the Fenix restaurant as it was one of my daughters birthdays. Being such a fan of master chef it was natural to visit.

    We ordered and upon receipt of our order it was disappointing to say the least that two meals were returned! Cold sausages & burnt pancakes!

    These were returned and two new meals delivered relatively promptly, however the presentation and quality was poor to say the least.

    Not a happy experience and rather disappointing when the prompt to dine was due to the quality emphasised on such a show as master chef.

    Certainly believe & hope Gary would be disappointed receiving this response.

    Thanks,
    Gary
