Indulgent Gastronomy with Sofitel

Treat yourself to gastronomical experiences like no other with some of our favourite Sofitel gastronomy venues


When visiting a new city, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed by dining options.


What do the locals love? Where’s the best breakfast place? And where should you visit for an indulgent meal?


Or perhaps you’re enjoying a night out on the town in your own neighbourhood and you’re looking to find your next favourite gastronomical treat.


Throughout Australia and across to New Zealand, Sofitel dining venues stand out as fantastical venues for delicious dining.

Gastronomy in Melbourne

Sofitel Melbourne on Collins

For next-level dining during the day, visit Melbourne’s highest high tea at No35 Restaurant. You’ll be able to enjoy sweeping views across Melbourne city and Port Phillip Bay while you indulge in fine sweet and savoury high tea treats. 


Then, once the sun sets, visit The Atrium on 35, where you can discover an extensive cocktail menu that balances flavour and soul. The classics—mojitos, Manhattans, martinis, and more—decorate the menu, along with house originals to delight you with unique and powerful flavour profiles.

Gastronomy in Adelaide

Sofitel Adelaide

The impressive, beautiful skyline of Adelaide is the icing on the cake when you visit Garçon Bleu. The open kitchen, impressive wine wall, and up-lit oyster and raw seafood bar welcome you and invite you to indulge in the finer things in life.


The twice-baked cheese soufflé with mushroom velouté and pickled shimeji mushrooms is a popular staple menu item for anyone looking for a bit of French sophistication with their dinner. And the poached rhubarb with white chocolate parfait and ginger sable is a delightful way to finish off any meal.

Gastronomy in Sydney

Sofitel Sydney on Darling Harbour

Overlooking the iconic Sydney Harbour, Champagne Bar in the Sofitel Sydney Darling Harbour delights all the senses with an impressive menu, sweeping views, and a lively atmosphere boasting unbridled joie de vivre.


Perfectly chilled champagne flows, along with seductive cocktails including the original “opposites attract’, made with Bulleit bourbon, Mountadam shiraz, rosemary, orange zest, and lemon.


And there’s no indulgent gastronomy without a bite to eat, so be sure to sample the food menu too. The oysters make for a great shared entrée, while the cape grim striploin with truffle hollandaise is the embodiment of a decadent dinner.


At the same Sofitel in Darling Harbour, you'll find world-class dining with uniquely French-inspired creativity. Named for the French word for an artist's workshop or studio, Atelier is a place where expert chefs experiment to deliver creative and delicious meals.


Enjoy Riverina Murry Cod, or something from the Boucherie Atelier (steaks grilled to your liking). Pair it with a side of spring asparagus or pommes frites (hot chips). Finish the meal with dark chocolate crémeux or citrus sablé for dessert with a glass of the finest wine or cocktail to match.


When it comes to indulging in an exciting and innovative gastronomical experience, Atelier should be on every Sydneysider's list.

Gastronomy on the Gold Coast

Sofitel Gold Coast

Visit Room 81 at the Sofitel Gold Coast to embark on a gastronomic journey through the Australian hinterlands and into the lush Coral Sea. Dine within the lushly decorated interior or step out onto the al fresco terrace to enjoy a cool sea breeze with your meal.


The menu ranges from rich dishes like beef bourguignon to fresh barramundi and black mussels. Each dish explores classic French recipes through a contemporary, Australian lens. You’ll quickly surrender to the tantalising scents, flavours, and textures of great food and a perfectly paired glass of wine.

Gastronomy in Wellington

Sofitel Wellington

All things dark and sumptuous await you at the Jardin Grill, Sofitel Wellington, where French inspiration gets a Kiwi twist.


Charcoal fire and smoke waft through the kitchen. Velvet and leather seating that invites you to sink down and relax. Dim lighting envelopes you into a cosy atmosphere with a hint of romance. Outside, a roaring firepit awaits, the perfect spot for an evening toast amongst friends or loved ones.


Dip your tastebuds into the gastronomical treats of Jardin Grill with charcuterie and cheese before diving into a main from the wood-fire grill. Choose your preferred cut of beef and how you want it cooked before the expert staff fire it by Manuka wood to your liking.


Pair your meal with a glass or bottle from the extensive wine list, or explore the botanically-inspired cocktails in the Green Room bar. The signature gin-based St Germain des Prés is the perfect balance of refreshing cucumber and fiery chilli.
