Cognoscenti Food & Wine

Cognoscenti Food & Wine is a cosy neighbourhood restaurant nestled in the heart of the Dandenong Ranges, located next-door to the historic Cameo Cinema.

The menu features exquisite modern Australian cuisine with a European influence, celebrating the beauty of fresh, local and seasonal ingredients. The star of the Cognoscenti kitchen is a wood-fired charcoal oven, adding a unique char and aroma that enhances the flavour of each ingredient.

Cognoscenti Food & Wine pride themselves on doing what they love, and this passion is reflected in their intimate service, spectacular food, signature cocktails, and a carefully curated selection of local and international wines.

Whether you're looking to enjoy cocktails in their sun-bathed courtyard, celebrating a special occasion in their gorgeous dining room, or just after a simple mid-week meal, Cognoscenti Food & Wine is truly the place for everyone.

The restaurant is open Wednesday to Friday 4pm-late; Saturday & Sunday 11:30am-late.
