British born chef Simon Arkless' culinary career started in London at OXO and Harvey Nicholls' ‘Fifth Floor’ Michelin star restaurants. Several years later he met and married talented Australian Chef, Cait Mitchelhill and they decided to move home to Australia to bring up their young family. Soon after relocating to Melbourne, they established a reputation and following at The Elbow Room, Essendon; Comme, Melbourne; and The Prince, St Kilda. In 2012 Simon and his family moved to North East Victoria and joined the team at Terrace Restaurant, All Saints Estate as Head Chef.
Simon's menus are constantly evolving, influenced largely by his European heritage and fresh seasonal produce grown close by or a little farther afield. Since taking over the stoves at Terrace, he has re-written the culinary landscape of the Rutherglen Wine Region and draws customers from all over Australia to enjoy his intelligent, delicate and beautiful dishes.
The Wine & Food Dream
Owners Eliza, Angela and Nicholas Brown, had a dream to build the reputation of Terrace Restaurant to match the high quality of their All Saints Estate wines.
In 2013 this dream became reality when the very first Good Food Guide ‘Chef’s Hat' was awarded to Terrace Restaurant at All Saints Estate. Since receiving this great honour Terrace has been awarded a Chef’s Hat each consecutive year since. In addition to these praises, Simon’s visionary cooking style has been commended in the Australian Gourmet Traveller ‘Top 100’ Restaurants in Australia' since 2014. For a small regional restaurant this result is outstanding.
Simon and his team commit themselves to creating an inspired seasonal menu with finest quality, locally sourced ingredients. The dining experience at Terrace is a synergy of each and every element from produce sourcing and menu preparation through to impeccable guest service . The next stage of the ‘wine and food’ dream is to be self sustainable with all produce coming from the surrounding estate land.
