Located in the leafy surrounds of the stunning Grollo Equiset Garden, enjoy a relaxed dining experience at Persimmon, in the heart of Melbourne’s arts precinct.

Drawing inspiration on artistic inspiration from the Gallery, the chefs deliver an exciting modern Australian menu with a European influence. Each menu is created with the finest attention to detail, and a strong focus on using local and seasonal produce. From a light salad of baby summer vegetables ‘a la Grecque’ with goat’s cheese bavarois, to a spring favourite of braised lamb’s neck –named one of the 50 Best Dishes in Melbourne (The Age Magazine, Issue 60), Persimmon caters to a variety of tastes.

For those with a sweet tooth, the deliciously decadent pastries, cakes and breads are baked daily in house by the Gallery’s pastry kitchen. The wine list compiled by Persimmon’s sommelier showcases local Victorian and international producers, with recommendations provided by professional service staff.

Persimmon is located at the rear of the Gallery on the ground floor; its entrance presided over by the beautiful Statue of Aphrodite. Positioned on the moat adjacent to the Gallery’s comprehensive art collection, it is an elegant, peaceful setting. It’s sleek, stylish interior is enhanced by large glass windows which overlook the Grollo Equiset Garden, featuring works by Rodin, Léger and Moore. Whether it’s a casual lunch after visiting the Gallery, or spending an indulgent afternoon sampling a three course menu matching wines, you will have a relaxed and enjoyable dining experience.
