A restaurant fit for its vista, mimi’s reflects Merivale’s deep connection to the coast. A fine dining restaurant located in the middle floor of Coogee Pavilion, the executive chef Jordan Toft presents a menu with a unique sense of place and a Mediterranean soul. mimi’s is the worth winner of the competitive Best New Wine List – Tony Hitchin Award.

Sponsored by Craggy Range, this award is named in memory of founding judge and respected wine writer, the late Tony Hitchin. Any licensed on-premise establishment that has been operating for 12 months or less is eligible for this award.


Judges comments:

Merivale’s latest offering, under the direction of Adrian Filiuta MS, could scarcely be more impressive. It is an international list that has its heart in France but illuminates the wines of Australia and so many parts of the globe with verve and panache. The 41 wines by the glass offer diversity and depth. Coravin offers top quality and rarity plus flights of Premier Cru Vaillons, the 2015 vintage in Burgundy, a tasting history of Madeira and more. Brilliant at the top end but there’s plenty of choice at everyday prices. A tour de force and deservedly the Tony Hitchin Award winning Best New List in the country.
