We decided on the degustation with matching drinks. Every dish was beautiful to look at and a pleasure to eat. There are Asian flavours throughout the meal with interesting combinations of texture and taste. The standout for me was the watermelon and venison dish paired with a Sorrenburg Gamay. (A wine I hadn't heard of before but perfectly matched the... More

Loved the creative way with vegetables as the feature of numerous mains, lots of work clearly went into the dishes but just missed on flavour (which was OK but not at level expected). Wine list excellent, especially the locals, but not cheap! We were there on a Sunday night, only half full, not sure if that made a difference. Service... More

We enjoyed the degustation with matching wines, what great evening of dine and wine! Our wine match was standard, they were all fantastic compliments to the exquisite food. We added the soy curd as a starter and also the cheese to the degustation menu. We loved every course except for the octopus which was tough and rescued by the sauce... More

Rutherglen, Beechworth such a great part of Victoria for tasting wines, and meet/know the people living there. Most of wineries in Beechworth are by App, so Provenance is a must try if you love wines from the locals producers and great/innovating way to eat. Me and my wife were impressed from the architecture (Old style building with high ceiling), very... More

Heard many great things about this restaurant although where high expectations come into play there is often a hightened risk of disappointment. Luckily this was not the case. Set in a heritage building with warm interior tones, The Provenance is a wonderful experience with innovative dishes and a fabulous wine list. Chef Michael Ryan blends regional produce with Japanese influences... More

Went with the degustation and particularly enjoyed the duck and the strawberry dessert. Overall was a most enjoyable dining experience with good, knowledgable service. Happy to return one day.

We enjoyed a degustation with matching wines. As it was a Wednesday evening the restaurant was uncrowded, so we received great service from the staff. It is always a plus when a restaurant has professional and talented front of house people. The food was good but very asian inspired, with tiny serves that left us a little unsatisfied at the...

I did not think that my last dining experience here could be surpassed, but I was happily proven wrong. We did degustation this visit and were absolutely blown away. Such interesting, well balanced courses, with supreme wine match. Service, again, friendly, informative and professional. A consistently amazing dining experience.

Absolutely fantastic! We opted for the degustation menu with matching wines which was amazing. Food was great, wines matched perfectly and the service was outstanding. Left very content without being to full. Highly recommended.
