This is in the QV hotel and often the hotel restaurant is disappointing but dash is an exception. Great friendly service, its reasonably priced, quiet and the food is inventive in its combinations. The ostrich was tremendous. Lovely night for couplesMore

Great location and the food was very good, if rather standard international hotel fare. Excellent selection of local wines and beers. Very easy to book a table online.

Description
Dash Restaurant & Bar, although it caters for Queen Victoria Hotel guests, is a stand-alone establishment that welcomes patrons from near and far. Extraordinary artworks embellish the walls in a bold fashion. Further, a live pianist sets the tone during dinner service from Tuesday to Saturday, a delightful accompaniment to the exquisite fine dining offered at this restaurant. The menu is concise and changes every few weeks. The chef and his team place much focus on each ingredient’s unique flavour and combine them creatively to delight the palate. The bar offers an extensive selection of single-malt whiskies and wines, and is a tasteful meeting spot.
