Another hat for Terrace
All Saints Estate restaurant ‘Terrace’ was awarded One Hat at the Australian Good Food Guide 2019 Awards for the sixth year on Monday, October 8.
Australian Good Food Guides have been awarding chef hats to discerning chefs around Australia since 1982, and are the result of careful deliberation.
Inspectors do not provide commentary when rating establishments, rather they submit a straightforward score out of 20 based on the food alone.
This is based on the traditional French rating system. Since the guide’s inception in 1977, a score of 20 has never been awarded and seldom have restaurants been awarded a 19.
The six attributes for hat success are ingredients, taste, presentation, technique, value and consistency.
Terrace head chef Simon Arkless has rewritten the culinary landscape of the region with the Terrace, consistently being awarded a One Hat standard over six years since his arrival in 2012 and accommodates customers from all over Australia to enjoy his creative and delicate dishes.
The winning combination of excellence in food quality, and the intuitive skills of restaurant manager Bec Deslandes, ensures the Terrace team continues deliver exceptional service.
Mr Arkless’ stellar career started in London at renowned restaurants Bibendum and Oxo Tower Restaurant, where he was made head chef at the age of 28.
“Working with a team like Simon and Bec makes us all strive for excellence,” All Saints Estate CEO Eliza Brown said.
“I’m very proud of the Terrace team and what we have achieved over the past six years.”
Join head chef Simon Arkless and the ‘One Hat’ team for ‘Estate on a Plate’ at Terrace Restaurant as they showcase the seasonal produce grown and harvested from All Saints Estate on Sunday, November 4 at 12pm.

The Rutherglen foodscape has enjoyed a resurgence with the crowning of Terrace Restaurant as one of the hottest food spots the region offers. Terrace Restaurant has enjoyed the glory of being awarded a ‘Chef Hat’ status by the National Good Food Guide since 2014 and was also placed in the Gourmet Traveller Top 100 Restaurants in Australia.
