Proudly situated in the bustling market town of Melbourne, Amalfi White achieves a rare combination of style and vibrancy, making it perfect for both relaxed dining and special occasions. While adults can enjoy the European-inspired dishes and superb quality grill, there is also a dedicated children’s menu perfect for little ones. During the summer months guests can even dine al fresco in the sun-drenched garden, which includes a great play area for children.
In the course of his career, head chef Matthew Clayton has cooked for the Queen and appeared on MasterChef. Now, under his guidance, his talented team use the best locally sourced ingredients to create tempting new dishes. It’s not hard to see why this venue was awarded two AA rosettes. There’s a good selection of tasty starters to tempt vegetarian and vegan palates, while the wild boar tortellini with spinach, asparagus and pickled oyster mushrooms is a popular choice with meat-eaters. Guests can also enjoy a crisp, authentic, wood-fired pizza cooked in a proper Italian pizza oven. The varied selection includes Margherita, Mediterranean, Pesce and more. Alternatively, indulge in a succulent burger – choices include n’duja, chicken, bean and lentil, and succulent beef. As well as the array of vegetarian and vegan options, Amalfi White is well known for its grilled dishes. Tuck into juicy steaks and excellent grilled sea bream or check out the specials board for the grill of the day. It’s also well worth visiting for Sunday lunch for a truly exceptional traditional roast.
This elegant restaurant boasts a well-stocked bar and a hand-picked wine list, but the real speciality at Amalfi White is the cocktail selection – the expert bartenders can mix up anything from a Martini to an Old Fashioned. Alongside the popular classics you’ll also find fresh seasonal cocktails and innovative new flavours like the Candy Floss Fizz. The pewter-topped bar also boasts 95 different gins and a bespoke gin menu incorporating different tonics and garnishes. The White Bar is the perfect spot in which to host a smaller group gathering, and can cater to dinner parties of up 15, or standing drinks parties of up to 40. For large private events, the opulent ballroom on the first floor, with its full length windows and glittering chandeliers, makes for a beautiful and memorable setting.
