With Melbourne Cup coming up fast around the bend, it’s time to find the perfect venue to watch the race that stops the nation.  Dine at the best venue this side of Flemington Racecourse with two exclusive packages on offer at Delfina’s Bistro’s new exciting space at Alex Perry Hotel & Apartments. With entertainment and prizes galore, all you’ll need to do is dress up, show up, and let the races commence.

Both packages include a five-course decadent lunch prepared by executive chef Matthew Ostrenski and head chef Jacob Baker, offering a glorious spread of fresh produce.

You’ll be greeted with an amuse-bouche of ocean trout pastrami, rye crisp, cauliflower pannacotta, crème fraîche and roe, followed by an entre of confit quail, crispy swede, baby cabbage, black pudding and bone marrow jus gra.


After a selection of drinks from the divine four-hour beverage package including free flowing Paul Cheneau Spanish Cava and Delfina’s own boutique house white or red, your taste buds will be tantalized with a decadent main of slow cooked lamb belly with coffee glaze alongside a fennel and orange salad.

Make sure you save room for the gorgeous spiced chocolate brûlée, garnished with a mandarin tuille, lemon verbena, chestnut sponge and malt cream for dessert.

The feast will be topped off with Woombye triple cream brie, condiments, lavosh and apple so there’s little chance you’ll have room for dinner.

The first package begins at 12pm and includes the five-course menu accompanied by a deluxe four-hour beverage package for $149.00 per person.


Package two will ensure you enjoy Melbourne Cup in style with a VIP booth for six people, including exclusive cocktails and tempting canapés. Beginning at 11am, you’ll enjoy the delectable five-course menu with a four-hour beverage package including Veuve Clicquot for $199.00 per person.

Besides a full coverage of the race, live music and entertainment will be on show throughout the day, as well as Race Day sweepstakes, prizes and giveaways.

Delfina’s Bistro will ensure that this Melbourne Cup is a decadent affair to remember. With an incredible menu and delectable drinks, early bookings are strongly encouraged, so you’d better race in.
