The Age Good Food Guide 2024 / One Hat

We’re thrilled to announce both of our venues, Polperro and Many Little Bar & Dining have been awarded a hat by The Age Good Food Guide 2024. ⁠

Congratulations to our Executive Chef across both venues Gayan Pieris, but we know it takes an entire team to make magic happen day in and day out. Thank you to Kenny Aranilla (Sous Chef), Blaz Rezen (Sommelier and restaurant Manager) and every single member of the Polperro family for all your care, passion and bloody hard work. ⁠

We can’t wait to welcome everybody over summer!

” Contemporary : An intricate menu among gum trees and vines 15.5/20

Polperro has a problem. During lunch, outdoor tables overlook a serene and gently sloping vineyard. Come dinner, you lose the view but gain atmospherically lit hums and cosy candlelight. Thankfully there’s no paradox of choice with the set menu, a testament to technique and Polperro farm produce. Dishes such as Donnybrook marron in a shallow coconut-tamarind broth, sopped up with shiny orbs of treacle bread hint at executive chef Gayan Pieris’ Sri Lankan heritage, Staters can lack cohesion, jumping from salty pork belly chawanmushi to freeze dried bread rectangles (a take on chicken avo sandwiches. But staff are faultless, whether cheekily referring to pomp puree a “heart attack mash” or recommending french wine over Polperro’s own a a su[erior dish match. As for resolving Polperro’s problem? Check into the charming accomodation to experience the beauty of both day and night”.
