Dinner by Heston Blumenthal - Crown Melbourne
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.
Had the most unbelievable experience with my wife last night awesome. The Bloody Mary just blew me away. Also the food wine just incredible will be back

Huge thank you to all
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!
Absolutely awesome! A must do experience
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.
Mouth smacking delicious on all fronts.
I will return one day soon
Absolutely amazing. Food was to die for, different but amazing. And the service was exceptional. Everyone was friendly and very informative. Lovely experience.
Amazing food, cooked and presented perfectly. Knowledgeable, friendly and helpful staff. Great view, easy to hear across the table, enjoyed seeing into the kitchen. Very cool entrance!!
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.
Amazing, truly spectacular feast with unparalleled service
Great food. Very accommodating and friendly staff
Insanely good. Left very full and super satisfied. Thanks!
Feel special from the moment you walk in. Great bar with excellent cocktails. Well drilled staff with a constant and unobtrusive service. Great to watch the kitchen work with calm patience. Food and wine to a high standard.
Great experience, service was beyond expectations (felt very personal).
Had an absolute amazing time. From the minute you walk in the atmosphere is amazing, staff a very friendly and have a lot of knowledge about the food and wine. Food was to die for, I could go on all day about our experience.
Service level is always great. The food standard is another thing that you will go for.
2nd time here! It’s such a great experience!!
Very good quality set menus with story behind each dishes. Friendly service from staffs and long and rare wine list.
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.
Service was impeccable. There is nothing that they couldn't do for us. Absolutely amazing time! Food was out of this world.
The entrance to the restaurant was spectacular. It had a great ambience. All the staff were excellent. The tastes of the food were so good. Overall it was a special night for our 30th Wedding Anniversary.
Absolutely mind blowing
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.
Heston is one of my chef heros and being able to spend a special birthday at his restaurant with my closest friends would have been amazing even if it was as FANTASTIC as it was.
Food is unique and prepared extremely well.
All four of us enjoyed the food very much. Excellent produce, beautifully prepared and presented. The Egg in Verjuice was particularly spectacular.
We all had different dishes so a good selection. I enjoyed the Kedgeree very much.
Cannot fault a thing.
The food is awesome
The staff are amazing
The wine is delicious and extensive
Fantastic place. Great food and service. A bit pricey, but good for a special occasion.
The staff and service was warm,welcoming and professional from the minute you walk through the door.
Great food with a view to match
We had a wonderful meal, the only disappointment was the steak dishes, which I did not have, came with nothing else on the plate. Whereas the duck, fish etc came with suitable vegetables which complimented the protein.
Food was balanced, well portioned, flavour, flavour, flavour. Beautifully looked after from the moment you step into the restaurant until you leave. I can still recall the taste of each dish, especially that Tipsy Cake. Everyone in our party was equally impressed.
We booked Dinner by Heston as a celebration of our Honeymoon in Australia. Our first reservation was for dinner, but my husband was not feeling well and the staff was incredibly kind to arrange us a table for lunch in a different day. When we arrived for lunch, we had the exactly same table, and all the staff asking if he was better. We had the most memorable lunch ever, the staff was incredibly kind, attentive, nice and knowledgeable of the dishes. We truly loved it and will never forget it!
The overall experience was amazing! Staff were attentive, professional/helpful.
View was gorgeous & the entrance was cool too!
The food was amazing,from entree through to dessert.
I'm someone who talks quite alot and I didn't say more than a sentence through main course because I was enjoying it so much.
We had the
Sherried Marron/meat fruit
Duck/roast fish with green sauce
Tipsy cake/vegemite icecream
Vegemite dessert is different, an acquired taste.
Wine list is extensive, always a plus.
We came to Dinner by Heston with high expectations and they were definitely exceeded. The alternative way the head chef has expressed his or herself through the menu is a breath of fresh air. The food and service is to be commended. The staff ensure it is a night to remember.
We had a great night. Highly recommend.
The moment you enter Heston’s it hits you that this will be an experience. You walk through a dark corridor and your senses are immediately confused. The door opens and you are welcomed With such professionalism it’s hard to compare it to anything else. The service, the food, the ambience, the care taken by everyone is noticeable and makes the experience all the more enjoyable.
As expected and as it is always, the food was fabulous. Although the cut of meat I had was of lesser quality than expected. My only criticism is the over servicing by the staff, too many times coming to the table to top up waters when not empty and to do tiny refills of wine glasses. The restaurant was not very busy hence that the staff didn't have much to do, but that shouldn't be to the detriment of our experience, I had to ask staff to please stop filling glasses that didn't need filling.....
