Memorable Meals

at Home



All pick up and delivery of orders will be as contact-free as can be…

We have created a waiting area outside, for customers where they can wait a safe distance away from each other. This will be monitored by our team. 

These pick-up areas will be frequently cleaned with disinfectant, wipes & hand sanitiser will be available for you to share with our staff. 

Of course, our kitchen team will properly seal all packaging and bags so your meal arrives at your table as fresh as possible.    






Pause at your table

It’s time to enjoy something Pause-worthy at home!.

We have designed a delicious array of “Dine at Home” meals, which you may order “a la carte”, or simply dive into our famous Degustation experience and “Leave it to Chef.  There’s much to explore…

Pause will open for the following services:

Wednesday to Saturday for Dinner, “Dine at Home” a la carte menu online, including “Leave it o Chef” for 2 at $99.

Lunch on Sunday focused on our Seafood Sunday Degustation, hot and cold Seafood for 2, for $109 (plus a limited a la carte menu for those who can’t fathom the salty depths).

As you would expect from us, our ingredients are always premium quality and our approach always “Slow Food”, with flavours driven by nourishing stocks, fresh herbs and loads of classic care… 

Our kitchen protocols are deeply professional, with attention to hygiene and detail relevant to our times.

Our wish is for you to still have a Restaurant experience, even though you can’t join us here and have us serve you. We hope our Passion for what we do still shines, albeit on your table.

Your support means a lot to us right now. 

We Welcome any questions, anytime on 3468-1771.

Discover Menu





Our Menu at it’s heart reflects European authenticity.  There’s no complicated flavours, typically you find just  a few fine ingredients in each plate. If you have spent time in Italy or France, the simplicity of the cuisine and it’s emphasis on unadorned quality will be familiar.

We offer you the chance to enjoy premium ingredients, prepared by deeply experienced Italian Chefs who care for each plate served.

We suggest you could start to explore our offerings with a few small plates, and a few well crafted cocktails or fine wines by the glass…or in time, trust us to indulge you with a degustation menu of “Leave it to Chef” that avoids decision, something you will never regret.

Close your eyes and order anything. It’s all delicious.

From a simple hand rolled crispy Arincino dipped in squid ink, to a 2 kilo Tomahawk steak with all the trimmings, we believe it’s all very good.

Every last taste until the plate is empty…our greatest compliment.
