In case you haven't travelled with us before, let us introduce ourselves. We are a fine dining restaurant located in the heart of South Yarra.

We first opened our doors in 2016, when a then, 22-year-old Charlie Carrington, decided to create a restaurant that changed cuisine every few months. Dubbed the most "Ambitious Restaurant Opening" of the year, Atlas Dining quickly rose to cult status. Within a month, Charlie became the youngest Australian chef to be awarded a Chef's Hat.

Seven years on, and (now) 19 cuisines later, Atlas Dining continues to be one of the most unique restaurants around.

We offer affordable fine dining, but most importantly, an unforgettable experience that helps guests' tastebuds travel the world.

    Excellent but certainly not value for money. The steak which was the last course of our $110 per person menu was simply a slice and that's it with one charred lettuce leaf

    Indonesian is hard to translate into fine dining. Food overall was tasty and delicious, but would have been better if was made fresh to order eg freshly fried to order - big difference. A lot of the food was on a sweeter side, could be a little more salty and spicy. Overall approach hit some spots for nostalgic tastes of Indonesia!

    From the moment you are greeted til when you leave the staff were so professional and friendly. All dishes came with informative explanations and the well balanced serves certainly complimented each other. Having not ventured here before and having had such a memorable evening, we will certainly be returning to experience what cuisine you have to offer next.

    Absolutely amazing dinner at Atlas Indonesia last night. Perfect quantity of food, left full but not stuffed. Perfectly timed courses and lovely explanations from the staff about the flavours and cooking techniques used. Food was stunning. Couldn't recommend his experience more highly.

    Booked a dinner reservation w/ my wife for our wedding anniversary from 6-8pm. Street parking available nearby, wife wore heels and it was less than 5-min walk. 1hr street parking till 6pm, then free afterwards :-) We did the 5-course degustation - thoroughly enjoyed it! We loved the travelling theme of the restaurant w/ passport and boarding pass on the table - never been to anything like it! Happy with the table size (I know that's a bit of a weird one), spacing between tables was good too. Great atmosphere and super lovely staff! Now the food was very yummy! Amazing flavours and depth, although not all was to my liking as I don't usually eat Indonesian food. My wife ordered a delicious cocktail and the apple cider went down well too. I really liked that the chefs came out to serve each dish w/ a detailed description - great touch! 👌 Our waiter also let us know of the menu theme and changes w/ each season. We're looking forward to the next dining dventure when the Autumn menu comes out! Definitely recommend Atlas! Solid 4/5 stars.

    It was a while since we were last at Atlas, but the combo of a "last minute" email and the Indonesian menu drew us like moths to a flame. Appropriate, given the deliciously smoky flavours in some dishes. Charlie and the team at Atlas have never disappointed and we've been several times to sample different cuisines, but the Indonesian fare was next level. There is always something unexpected that raises our eyebrows and delights (the compressed cucumber on the snack platter on this occasion), and there are always a dish or two that have us sitting back saying "wow", repeatedly. The Beef Rendang done two ways stood out - the traditional take was the best I have ever come across and the Atlas team's modern twist really impressed - and the smoky chicken was to die for. Sorely tempted to pop back for another run through the menu before they switch to their next culinary destination in the Autumn. Impeccable service as always and an absolute treat to visit.

    Nice evening overall. It was a birthday celebration which is asked at the time of booking but not acknowledged on the night. Food was very good, great flavours, well presented. A nicely curated wine list and cocktails to match the cuisine were well thought out. The service was good but had to be requested. We needed to ask to see the wine list again, to get our table water refilled. Attention to the customer experience was lacking but it was obvious the staff were under the pump. Once the dining room was full it was too noisy. To the point of struggling to hear the people you are dining with. We were seated at the rear near the kitchen which had a low ceiling so I imagine this contributed to the loudness. We would request a front section table next time.

    Visited Atlas Indonesia as a vegan, with 1 coeliac. The team couldn't be more accommodating, and the food was outstanding! Wine list was top notch and the ambience was nice and relaxing - can't wait to visit Indonesia again and to see what else in on the cards!

    A phenomenal experience. The Greek experience menu is a masterful orchestration of flavors and textures that took traditional delicious Greek food into a refreshing contemporary twist exploration. But what truly elevated our dining experience was the exceptional service led by Marco, Yvan, and the entire wait staff. Their knowledge of the menu, attention to detail, and genuine warmth added an invaluable dimension to our evening. The matching wines are a must. They do not only complement the menu but enhance the flavours - and the stories behind the wine journey are just fascinating. Do yourself a favor and embark on this culinary odyssey – your palate will thank you.
