In a beautiful dessert of poached stone fruits with peach gel, rose meringue and stone-fruit sorbet, chef James Viles caps things off with rose petals from his mum’s garden. You can’t help but think she must have a pretty big garden to supply her son’s restaurant with all those petals. These stories pervade all the dishes at Biota - a restaurant with deep connections to the people and forests of the Southern Highlands and with food that is all the better for it. Hen’s yolk trembling ingenue-like in sheets of pasta covered in curds and rye is a textural triumph, as is a delicious bowl of smoked roe and scampi hiding under foraged purslane and charcoal. With thickly painted artworks, handsome ferns and sleek, Scandi furnishings, Biota Dining is a place you’ll never want to leave. It’s a good thing the hotel rooms are only a stone-fruit’s throw away.

And … A dead sexy brunch menu on weekends.
