We recently dined at Vanitas to celebrate our wedding anniversary. As it was a Saturday (the day of our anniversary) we could only choose from the degustation menu. Whilst there was plenty of choices in the courses offered it was probably a little too much for one sitting for most people. Combined with the high drink prices it would be... More

When I rang to book I asked if they had A La Carte and not just Degustation and we are not big eaters. Upon looking at the menu your choice is 3 or 4 courses instead of the 10. We only wanted one course and that didn't seem a popular request. My daughter is vegetarian and there was nothing on... More

Food to die for with perfectly matched wines. Beautiful atmosphere and stunning resort. On the pricier side of dining, however this restaurant was designed for special occasions in mind.

We were a table of 8 dining after a day of workshops. The food was uniformly well regarded. With some wine and drinks and a couple of side dishes, the bill came to $50 a head. Service was prompt and ambience was fine.

This is a very special dining experience which lets you indulge in a food and wine evening. We had the degustation menu with matching wines with each course which allows the flavours and textures to be enhanced and enjoyed. Service was professional and friendly. Thank you to the team and especially Ellysha

We are in the Vanitas for my husband's birthday. We went for the Degustation menu and wine to match each dish. The food was outstanding and presented beautifully. The atmosphere was elegant and decorated beautifully. The whole evening was an amazing experience.
