Nota in Paddington epitomises modern European dining serving simple, uncomplicated fare with a focus on quality and seasonality.
Located in the heart of Paddington on Given Terrace (where Montrachet once stood), Nota has restored the charm and character to this historic building with exposed brick, brass features and soft shades of brown.
Snacks or entrées include tempura fish sandwiches, confit pork on brioche buns, savoury churros and puffed rice crisps with smoked sesame cheese and semi-dried tomato.
Dishes designed to be shared range from fish (such as slow-cooked octopus with raspberry emulsion) and mouth-watering meat (like warm lamb salad with greens, mint and ricotta or Brisbane Valley quail served with sweet corn polenta) to plates of seasonal vegetables.
Delicious desserts include warm house crumble served with vanilla anglaise, Callebaut chocolate brulée with raspberry sorbet and custard tart with prunes and Pedro Ximenez ice-cream.
Nota is fully licensed with craft beer on tap and bottled, boutique wine from Australia and overseas, classic cocktails and signature cocktails like the luminescent GPS – Ink Gin, Prosecco, sherbet and limoncello. This one's a must-try!
