There's something Old World about Post. Perhaps it's the grandeur of the renovated 140-year-old State Buildings the restaurant, part of Como The Treasury, resides in. The Gatsby-era tunes, dim lighting and suave waiters add to the nostalgia, as do the menu's bistro-leaning accents. Rangers Valley beef fillet with Café de Paris butter is as classic as it gets, while a rich chocolate crémeux with milk ice-cream and raspberries is another Gallic triumph. It's not all strictly Larousse. Cured kingfish under wafer-thin rounds of daikon and green apple dusted with wakame is a masterclass in finesse. Tender pork belly is served not with crackling, but with shaved fennel and Shark Bay prawns. Like the menu, the by-the-glass selection is concise, but it works. Look to the wine list proper to find local big-hitters alongside international favourites. Health-conscious, but equally delicious options from Como's Shambhala spa are also offered for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
