Inspired by 15th century manuscripts, to the fanciful dramatic dishes of the Royal courts of King Henry the VII, Dinner by Heston Blumenthal offers diners a very modern interpretation of historic British gastronomy.

What started as an exercise in curiosity by Heston Blumenthal, has resulted in almost 20 years of research and discovery. Alongside Ashley Palmer-Watts, the two chefs created a menu inspired by the tastes and flavours of Britain, from the farmers plate to the royal courts, offering a contemporary gastronomic insight from Medieval c.1300 to Victorian c.1800.

Expensive but a very nice experience. A table at the window adds to the experience looking across the Yarra & city skyline. Staff are friendly, attentive & knowledgeable without being over-bearing. The food was very nice.

Dinner at Hestons was second to none! My partner and I went there for our 5 year anniversary and were blown away by the service, food & cocktails. It was an experience from the minute you walk down the entrance hall till picking up the cheque...seamless and enjoyable. 10/10

The staff were courteous, and welcoming. I originally had booked for 2, but due to difficult circumstances I was only able to attend. The staff went above and beyond to make me feel welcome. The food was delivered promptly and I could not fault the flavours. Was expensive but well worth the money. Would highly recommend to anyone. The gingerbread ice cream dessert was the best dessert I have ever eaten!

We expected Dinner by Heston to be quite formal and stuffy but it was quite relaxed and the staff were terrific. . For entree we had the Meat Fruit and Hay Smoked Kingfish. For mains we had the Venison with cherries and the Rib eye steak. For desert we had the Tipsy cake and the cheese platter.
The highlights were definitely the Venison and Tipsy cake. The Rib eye steak with chips was slightly underwhelming (chips were ordinary) but still good. Would highly recommend for the experience.

Welcoming atmosphere with professional attention to details of each staff members made our dining experience very memorable. Every dish we selected were not only visually beautiful but also gave us wow moments every bite. The sommelier who served us was very patient, friendly and knowledgable to find the wine my friend would enjoy ( and she did with sparkles in her eyes). Thank you very much for a magical time.

I was pleasantly surprised by my experience at Heston’s, I was apprehensive about going as my experience so far with the Crown restaurants had left a sour taste in my mouth.
The staff at Heston’s were beyond lovely, not a single person made you feel like you didn’t belong there. The food was amazing and was well worth the splurge. Would highly recommend!

Food was amazing, we have been to other top chef restaurants and we were not disappointed. Service was exceptional. Based on the experience and Heston’s reputation we were not surprised by the cost.

The genuine smiles, service and care from the staff helped create the memorable experience of dining at this restaurant. The floor to ceiling windows offered stunning views. The wine suggested to us was spot on with what we wanted. The food was both fascinating, impressive and perfected.

We had a lovely experience. The food was exceptional, however one of the waiters who was looking after our wine unfortunately had a bad bio. It was quite overpowering and hard not to smell.

The food was outstandingly good, although not as quirky as might have been expected from a 'Heston' experience. Staff were deeply professional and attentive. Definitely a fine dining memorable experience.

Having had dinner with your restaurant for the first time and during a special occasion (my birthday) makes me feel so so special. Exceptional food and very efficient customer service making us feel very welcome and well looked after is all worthy of recommending you to our family and friends. Will definitely come and visit again.

We celebrated a special occasion, which I think is perfect for Dinner by Heston Blumenthal. It is a unique experience with a menu that can't be replicated.
The team were thoughtful and keen to ensure we were enjoying our evening.

It was fantastic experience. The food was nice, the people were nice and the wine was perfect. I would like to thank Micheal about the recommendation of wine to me. And also if possible, I would like to know the list of wine I drank on the night. It was 27th of May under John Lee at 6:30 pm.
