PROFILE BY BEST RESTAURANTS

Le Petanque restaurant and cellar offers a modern approach to French provincial dining. Housed in a recently renovated barn, the exclusive Le Petanque restaurant offers a spacious formal dining room setting with crisp white linen. Retaining the country charm of the building, diners enjoy glimpses of the surrounding garden – with lavender and roses growing outside.

While the venue is quaint, it is the skill of Simon Buckley that attracts customers. The menu overflows with possibilities, making choosing a dish a difficult task for the indecisive. Seasonal produce is celebrated as Gippsland rabbit terrine pairs perfectly with a warm salad of fresh picked autumnal vegetables. French tomato tart with goat's curd and olive tapenade makes for good use of hand rolled pastry and scattered delicately with edible flowers. This relaxed restaurant features wines which compliment each dish, and gives a thoughtful touch to the meal. Don't leave for Melbourne without sampling the soft-centred Valrona ‘biscuit' with house-made vanilla ice cream – the 20 minute wait will fly by with a quick tour of the Petanque pitch and grounds. A visit to Le Petanque doesn't come cheap as many who make the journey to the Mornington Peninsula, may just return home with a planned trip to Provence.
