If you are in Red Hill Estate, it will be rude if you don’t order their wines. I had  Red Hill Estate Pinot Noir and it is one of the popular wines in Mornington Peninsula.


max's restaurant potato gnocchi
Lunch started with Gnocchi. It is their homemade potato gnocchi in a semi dried tomato, summer pea and saffron broth. It was colourful and yet scrumptious.

max's restaurant pork

I had Pork. Pork with succulent baked Tuscan porchetta, bacon, rolled with garlic and rosemary accompanied by roasted kipfler potatoes and crispy prosciutto. It was mouthful like the descriptions. The taste was pleasant and the taste was well balanced.

max's restaurant chicken
I also had the Chicken. It was free range chicken breast stuffed with a sage and chive farce on a bed of caponata with a tarragon cream sauce. I thought I read it wrong when I read free range chicken (kampung chicken). This was a beautifully crafted dish.

max's restaurant Zabaglione

Zabaglione was my first dessert. Zabaglione is an Italian dessert and this was colourful to eyes and to the taste palates as well. Gorgeous!

Lastly, if you don’t order a cheese platter you will regret it later. The beauty of traveling in Australia is you get to taste different types of cheese produced in different areas of the state. Don’t be surprised when boutique cheese makers in Victoria are scoring big locally and internationally!
