Tel: 61 3 9682 5566's insider take:

Few meals in Melbourne come with backdrops as picturesque as those of the Point, a glass-front restaurant that arcs around Albert Park Lake, with the city skyline rising behind it. But this smart waterfront establishment has an equally strong selling point: steak. The management's relationship with a major meat exporter ensures it first pick of some of the country's best beef. So there's no need to dress up tender 300 day–aged Wagyu: It's served with a simple soy glaze and Japanese coleslaw. Prime grain- or grass-fed beef comes cooked to order, with wilted spinach, roasted bone marrow, and béarnaise or red-wine sauce. European-trained chef Scott Pickett's eclectic menu also has some delicious French-inspired dishes: milk-fed saddle of veal, assiette of lamb, and classic bouillabaisse.
