Circa, the Prince, which has featured on the Melbourne fine dining scene for years, has a new lease of life after refurbishment completed in early 2012. This St Kilda restaurant has been transformed to a darker, more mature version of is former self. Here nature and industry collide, combining iron roof structures with foliage both in and outside, amongst a muted colour palate. The new brass bar and cocktail lounge is retro, in a modern way, and a great place to unwind in a high-backed loveseat while waiting for your table. You'll need to resist the urge to spend half of dinner poring over the 57 page wine list, with a world of choice at your fingertips, it's a good excuse to change tack from the usual suspects.

Executive Chef Ashly Hicks has created a visionary menu; guided by the season’s bounty and delivered with a Modern Australian finesse. Through strong relationships with the very best Victorian and Australian growers, farmers, foragers and fisherman, the menu emphasises premium meats, sustainable seafood and organic produce. Save room for dessert. Ashly’s eclectic combinations and surprising textures spell the perfect end to this delectable dining experience.
