This is the second time I have gone to Brooks and I must admit the food is excellent. Some of it is a little rich but all the same it is presented with precision and flair. The restaurant does degustation and you should to do dinner this way to sample what they have on offer.

The restaurant itself is located in a lane way just off Collins Street and is where Jamie Oliver's 15 used to be. Although the premises are a bit dated the food and service makes up for this.

The following dishes are a sample of some of their dishes.

Chicken Parfait, rye bread and rhubarb jam

Vegetable croquettes, charcoal, ginger & red wine

Nic's souvenir of Laguiole. Meli Melo vegetables

Spanner crab, pickled oysters, mussels, Shizo oil, nori

"Forrest floor" , chocolate & hazelnut parfait, pork crackling, mint, sorrel granita and

The service was excellent and the wine list long. Overall a very pleasant dinning experience and I would recommend you try some time. Score for food 8/10 and service 9/10.
