Thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience. The food and service were outstanding and the interaction with the chef made for a fun and interesting evening. They've taken the model of kaiseki with a commitment to Australian only sourced product. Apart from the NT they had sourced for our menu product from every state in Australia. If you like Japanese cuisine and want a fine dining experience without the stuffiness that sometimes comes with that then you'll enjoy The Table at Kisume. More

We dined at Cecconi's for a family celebration. The ambience was wonderful, service excellent and food plentiful and delicious. We shared entrees of fried zucchini flowers and gnocci, then enjoyed woodfired lamb, duck and steaks, all cooked perfectly. The wine list was extensive and beautifully complimented the meal. We finished with warm chocolate pudding. A fantastic night. More

This is my second visit and using a voucher. This is at a request of a friend I took the first time. The food is once again magnificent. This is how classy tapas should feel and taste like. Prices are definitely not cheap but for the quality I would say worth it. The staff can be a hit and miss. Most of the staff this night was nice but just over worked and didn't see the many many times when we tried to get their attention until I went up to the counter and requested or get the water myself. The maitre d was the worse. The only time she cracked a smile is when we arrived. But once I produced the voucher, her faced turned and that was it. She wasn't particularly friendly and for some strange reason shot me dirty stares whenever we passed glances. Oh well. More

Japanese | Melbourne CBD, Inner City

My wife and I were recommended Hihou a while back by friends in the hospitality industry - specifically, people who know that we love sake. It took way too long to try this spot out, and perhaps that didn't work in our favour, but, I would say we are glad we finally got around to it. However, Hihou is not the sort of spot you can hunker down in for hours at a time. The chairs at the front window aren't comfortable, and there are a lot of wooden stools elsewhere; reading reviews by others I get the feeling that towards the back of the bar/restaurant there may be a more comfortable area, but, we didn't see that, so, I can't really comment. Hihou has a great bar -- it's striking visually, and the contents are also noteworthy. They seem to have gone in big with the Enomatic by-the-glass dispenser, which, in the case of sake, was a bit of a shame -- there were very few sakes available by the bottle, which is what we were after. You're pushed towards glasses, 100ml and 300ml instead. The menu at Hihou is basic, but has some definite winners (we quite liked the dumplings) - however, and this was my fault, I was under the impression that Hihou was a restaurant which had a bar. It's not. It's a bar, and generally designed (at least in our experience) to get you in and out. Hihou would shine as a quick-drink destination, a small bite to eat, but if you're looking for a long and comfortable meal with great sake, you'll find better options elsewhere. Will we be back? Maybe. Staff was excellent, service was great, but we definitely prefer a slightly different experience. More

Thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience. The food and service were outstanding and the interaction with the chef made for a fun and interesting evening. They've taken the model of kaiseki with a commitment to Australian only sourced product. Apart from the NT they had sourced for our menu product from every state in Australia. If you like Japanese cuisine and want a fine dining experience without the stuffiness that sometimes comes with that then you'll enjoy The Table at Kisume. More
