I understand completely. That is some of the challenge of being a tourist, sometimes it isn't all about the food, but the view and the experience count. I was relying on articles like this https://foursquare.com/msilverpr/list...

I have many great responses here, opinion seems to lean toward the Modern, so I need to do some homework on some menus.

Kathyrn,

Would you particularly recomend any of these ahead of my original suggestions? You have so many great restaurants.

Thankyou. I am of teh view that no matter where I choose, it will be a memorable evening. I read one of teh threads that focussed on EMP. Some suggest they had a degustation dinner (which we love) for $75. But their website says the menu is $195 pp??

Hi,

We like good modern food and have eaten at some of Melbourne's finest restaurants (Vue de Monde being a highlight).

As I have many other events planned for our week, I was looking to spend about the $100 per head mark. Just looking for some quality food, at a memorable venue (either romantic, with a view etc).

hi everyone,

I am new to chow hound, and really looking for some opinions on the best special occassion restaurant to celebrate my wife's 40th birthday in March. I have researched as best I can from Australia, and have narrowed to
- River Cafe ( appreciate it is currently closed)
- Aureole
- One if by Sea.

Any thoughts?
