Jacques Reymond

Established in Melbourne for over twenty years Jacques Reymond Restaurant was initially located in a three level building in Lennox Street Richmond before moving to the contemporarily renovated Victorian mansion on Williams Road where we have been for the last eighteen years. Greatly influenced by the produce in Brazil and Spain Jacques has combined these with the Asian and Pacific ingredients used here in Australia to develop his own unique style of Australian contemporary cuisine. With the use of French techniques Jacques creates dishes of brilliance and sophistication. He is very much the person behind his restaurant, very involved in each stage of planning the perfect meal for you. His passion for food is only matched by his passion for wine. The feeling of warmth and intimacy of the premises, blended with the wonderful food, wine list and professional service creates the ultimate fine dining experience. The last 20 years has seen Jacques Reymond Restaurant voted one of the best in Victoria winning the prestigious top awards from "The Age Good Food Guide", being the only Restaurant in Victoria to win six times in a row. The 2011 'The Age Good Food Guide' awarded the Restaurant once again three hats.
