What we ate
Food: The White Rabbit Whopper is a burger packed with flavour.
The beef patty is dense but succulent and paired with smoky bacon, provolone cheese, fresh lettuce and creamy mustard mayonnaise in a soft seeded bun. The most interesting element was a sweet and chunky beetroot and caramelised onion relish, giving this burger a unique and interesting flavour combination. The burger is served with a side of fat chips and dill pickled cucumber.
All in all, a top notch burger and a must-try for any burger enthusiasts out there.
We also had the slow cooked lamb shanks, served with creamy mashed potato and snappy green beans, complemented with a rich red wine jus. A hearty and wholesome meal best enjoyed with a glass of red.
Wine: We enjoyed a glass of Paul Conti Cabernet Sauvignon, a medium-bodied red wine with a medley of back forest fruits, olives and violet characters. A delicious accompaniment to our meals.
About White Rabbit Restaurant
This family owned and operated restaurant means you feel welcomed the instant you are greeted and seated.
The sandy yellow, historic building makes for a prominent site in the heart of bustling Church St, just across from Middle Brighton train station. The interior is beautifully adorned, with dark wooden furniture, illustrations across the walls and soft lighting to set a relaxed mood. Warmer weather calls for sitting outside on rustic, wooden furniture with built-in plants to give you that true sense of dining outdoors.
While the atmosphere of White Rabbit Restaurant is enticing, the impeccable customer service is the real draw card of this place. Wait-staff were attentive without being annoying, happy to share a joke between service and genuinely seemed happy to be working. This alone will keep you coming back for more.
Atmosphere: Friendly, inviting, relaxed.
Value for money: 10/10 (Burger was $21.90; lamb was $28.90; wine was $9 per glass).
