Pure South Dining has forged a reputation for offering a beautiful dining experience based on stunning produce from King Island, Flinders Island and Tasmania since 2004.

King Island Beef, St Helens oysters, scallops, seafood and dairy are delivered weekly by
small planes from Tasmania and the islands.

You will dine in the heart of Melbourne on the Southbank Boardwalk with views over the
River to the city.

In the dining room we offer a full  à la carte menu along with
a six course degustation menu.
