We were a table of 8 for a birthday dinner. Great ambiance, very entertaining, the food was outstanding. We had the set menu for restaurant month. The fermented mushroom butter infused Milk breads were incredible. But it would spoil it to tell more. Just go. We had both vegetarian and meat eaters in out group, everyone was happy,

This is our third visit to Culprit and it never disappoints. The food, service and ambiance is outstanding. As a group of six we ate off the Epic menu and it was fabulous.

Interesting food, well cooked. Really high quality service - knowledgable, attentive, smart not smarmy and just right...and lots of interesting touches. Well done Culprit.

Attention to detail on flavour, texture, presentation, service and staff makes dinner at Culprit so good.
Every time I have had a meal I have left with a new favourite food taste I had not experienced before.
Well sourced ethical produced also let's you feel a little smug as you eat luscious tasty morsels and drink well matched wines. Thanks team again for a great meal and good company.
