Additional Information



Set in the thriving hub of Melville, The Countess is known for serving up innovative cuisine. Their comprehensive menu comprises of dishes that combine unusual ingredients together, creating notable taste explosions. While being a relatively new restaurant to the area, these culinary masterpieces have already begun to turn the heads of local foodies.

The interior is much like the food, with an assortment of diverse, eclectic knickknackery found scattered around. The steampunk-inspired restaurant is styled to match a restored warehouse, where moody-blue drapes fall in direct contrast with glistening copper pipes. The warm ambience that is created allows patrons to enjoy intimate meals in a candlelit setting. While many enjoy an evening meal at ‘The Countess’, breakfasts are available to early-rising patrons. One can never go wrong with its ‘Eggs Benedict’ with a twist, a meal consisting of two poached eggs with wilted spinach, smothered in a tangy hollandaise sauce and served on a toasted ciabatta roll. Athletes or persons looking for a quick ‘pick me up’ can glug down some ‘Raw Green Juice’ , consisting of kale, lemon and granny smith apples, while nibbling on a ‘Cinnamon Power Bar’.

Diners can start off a three-course meal with a diverse selection of starter dishes. The beer battered fish with caper and gherkin aioli comes highly recommended to seafood lovers. If that does not tickle your fancy, however, opt for the ever-popular ‘Chicken Liver Parfait’. Lovers looking to share should give the ‘Charcuterie and Fromage Plank’ a try – a sizeable platter that will leave you feeling suitably stuffed. For mains, adventurous eaters can tantalise their taste buds with The Countess’ signature meal, smoked brisket, truffle mac and cheese, topped with mozzarella and onion rings.

What would a meal be without a sweet surprise? The ‘Chocolate Mousse with Syllabub’, with all its chocolatey goodness, is the perfect way to end off one’s meal.
