talk about investment. The sculpture park is lovely, and the state of the art new tasting center is expensive - but the wines are over priced for what's on offer.

As part of our day out on the Mornington Peninsula, our friends took us to Pt Leo Estate. There, we were surprised to find not only an extensive vineyard, wine tasting and an amazing restaurant with views over the bay, there was also a huge sculpture park. Entrance was Aus$5 for seniors, which represented good value. It took us a good hour to purely skim the works of art, we could have spent much longer.

We were so excited to read of the opening of this new restaurant as part of the prestigious Pt Leo Estate, on Mornington Peninsula, and booked as soon as we read about it in Gourmet Traveller. It offers a 4-6 course degustation of locally sourced products lovingly prepared!
And then the disappointment! My daughter thought perhaps they were in a time-warp back in the 80's when lamb-chicken terrine was popular. I just thought they were confused (or we were) and I could not understand where their focus was or what they were trying to achieve. All the 4 courses were under-seasoned and bland - very bland. The sauces were OK - but no bread to wipe them up with - one of the waiting staff suggested I use a spoon! We did ask for more bread which was provided but there just needs to be a good sourdough on the table to mop up the plates!
The first course of mushrooms glazed like a chicken wing (seriously) was bland and I would have preferred a chicken wing! The fish was nice (but bland!) and my daughter's was overcooked.
The lamby-chicken, or chickeny-lamb was awful. The lamb itself was very good - succulent with the right amount of fat - but sandwiched with the chicken (which we thought initially was bread) was just unpleasant in the mouth. The desserts were nice enough but none of this warranted a cost of over $300 for 2 (with only 1.5 glasses of wine).
The chef came from working with Neil Perry whose Rockpool is one of our favourite restaurants. Please contact him and ask him to come and help you out - he knows all about flavour and I am sure can work with this menu to make it sensational.

Easter Sunday was a magical day at Point Leo Estate. Arriving around 1ish we meandered part of the world class sculpture park overlooking the water until our lunch booking at 2 pm . The menu was extensive and was first class...do not miss the carrot soufflé or beetroot pancake. Mains we had included beautiful fish, and duck . Presentation and flavours could not be faulted. The staff were delightful, attentive, bubbly and helped with menu suggestions. After our relaxing lunch we then completed the sculpture walk.

We intended to lunch here but although it's a huge (gorgeous!) building and caters for many people, it was already fully booked by midday on a Thursday. The staff were helpful and put us on a waiting list and offered to text us as soon as a table became available. So we had a wine tasting. The wines were pleasant rather than great and the same could be said for the staff. We enjoyed wandering round the sculpture park to see some quite unusual and interesting art. This whole winery/restaurant/sculpture park complex is amazing and definitely worth a visit. It's clearly been built with many tourists in mind and we thought the facility looked world-class.
