There are so many great restaurants in Melbourne, and with new ones popping up regularly, it's hard to keep up. The best way to sample Melbourne's wonderful restaurant scene is to experience a few in one evening. With clusters of amazing venues within walking distance, we have devised a great way to see and taste the city in a delicious and enjoyable experience. Our Progressive Degustation Walk is a tour of Melbourne's hidden away and local favourite dining spots. We visit three unique venues, with carefully chosen wine tastings and tantalising savoury tastes from their menus. Hear from passionate staff who share their favourite drops, or learn about how their distinctive restaurant design, location and menus came to be.
