Attica loves beautiful, rare and unique ingredients
Attica loves beautiful, rare and unique ingredients but for us that means bunya nuts, murnong or marron rather than foie gras, caviar or lobster.
Fans of beautiful cutlery but also believe that some things taste better when eaten with your fingers. Their ambience music taste is eclectic – you’ll hear that as you eat.
Attica’s staff loves looking after people but formal isn’t their style – more into chatting.
Attica serves a multi-course tasting menu at $360pp (payable upon booking) and beverages are charged on consumption.
