The change in direction that has seen the Flinders Hotel head upmarket in the past few years is probably best encapsulated at its flagship restaurant Terminus, a modern fine-diner with a nice sense of low-key glamour. A carpeted dining room with teal accents and a lovely glassed-in terrace is the backdrop for a menu of prettily plated food with European and north African influences - a crisp Moroccan pancake teamed with fresh and pickled vegetables, perhaps, or lobster tail with local mussels, fennel and cinnamon. Nicely pink lamb roulade pairs with polenta gnocchi, while at dessert the signature is a super-sweet Turkish-delight soufflé. At times the flavours can get a little muddled (the service, though well meaning, is sometimes the same way), but a well-constructed and well-priced wine list that places local labels alongside excellent Australian and international bottles is a great source of consolation.
