Overview

Based in the Barton’s Realm Precinct within the five-star hotel, Louis is the crown jewel of a new venture aiming at bringing a multi-layered culinary offering right at the heart of the Australian capital, combining a classical European dining experience with sophisticated cocktails.

Chef Ben Willis curates a fresh and seasonal offering featuring the finest ingredients from his network of great Australian producers. Through the Garden Bar you can find Louis Alfresco, with its outdoor area, bistro chairs, maintaining a touch of French traditional hospitality whilst diversifying the culinary experience further.

With a European menu that draws inspiration from Provence and the French Riviera in the south of France, guests can expect Mediterranean flavours throughout dishes that include John Dory with braised beans and chorizo, Fougasse and tapenade, as well as Potato and leek Pithivier sublimed by salsa verde.
