"Outstanding food, charming place, great wine". "Never fails to please". "Consistency and excellence at its best".

Tarragon has racked up numerous awards over the years and with good reason. Chef patron and celebrity restaurateur Marvin Gauci (also of Caviar & Bull, Susurrus, and Dinner in the Sky fame) has tirelessly pushed himself to stay ahead of everyone else when it comes to innovation in cuisine and excellence in service. The tasteful interior décor truly enhances the elegance factor. The place is spacious and allows for a completely unobstructed view of the sea.
While the menu can cater for more traditional tastes, it is the desire for novelty that really brings out the best experiences at Tarragon. Visit with an open mind and an appetite for the unexpected. Start with the gin and beetroot cured salmon and snapper carpaccio, drizzled with honey and citrus mustard, crispy chorizo, or the pappardelle tossed with a confit of local rabbit meat, teriyaki and rabbit jus. Move on to the tender, 72-hour slow-cooked black angus boneless short ribs, enhanced with Kinnie and citrus glaze and bursting with flavour. The wine list is a passionately-assembled encyclopedia. Read about the varietals, barriques, stoppage techniques, terroirs and regions for every bottle in stock. As the years continue to roll, Tarragon keeps going from strength to strength, consistently offering one of the best dining experiences in an intimate setting with gorgeous views and fantastic service.
