I’m really sad to see Incontro go! This by far was my most favourite restaurant to go to on a regular basis. The friendly staff, the awesome head chef and lets not forget about the amazing food, all played a huge part in making dinner at Incontro a really great experience. We never ordered off the menu rather had Chef Peter Manifis cook for us instead. We even got to try dishes that he had been working on and that were not even being served that night. The best night I ever had there was when I proposed to my now beautiful fiancée Emma and that will be remembered forever.
I managed to book in just before the Christmas eve deadline and boy it was packed. I managed to take a few photos below (don’t know why I hadn’t posted about it sooner) of our last dinner before it had to close its doors. I would Like to say a Massive thank you to Anna, Peter and all the friendly staff that helped make our dining experience at Incontro something special.
First Course Abrolhos Island Coral Trout and Marron Gnocchi Ravioli

Second Course Slow Cooked Dorper Lamb Shoulder

Thank you so much to Incontro for the lovely memories and I cant wait to see what the future bring for the team who worked there!
#32 IN THE WORLD FOR 2015
Now I know a few of you guys know I managed to get a booking into Attica, only two days after the 2015 world rankings came out. I was sitting in my car at 6:50 in the morning with both my work and personal phones in each hand to try and get this booking. As soon as it struck 7am (I had to book in June for September) I hit the reserve button only to find one phone had already not gone through.
It was only when I got the prompt to enter my credit card details (12 minutes later) that I realized I had just booked in to eat at Attica. Huge sigh of relief! Attica has given me permission to use the photos I took. I wont post all my photos as there was 22 dishes, drinks to match and I didn’t get photos of everything (but pretty close). They ware all amazing dishes but the photos I am showing you guys are the ones we liked best!
