Provenance was amazing - the quality and value completely surprised us, and it was easily one of the best meals we've had in a while. The only criticism would be the slightly slow pace of the meal, which took around 3 hours in total. Between the delicious food, the wine, the long pauses between courses, and the extremely warm dining room, we were close to falling asleep towards the end. But we would happily do it all again, and certainly wouldn't hesitate to take the long drive to Beechworth for this restaurant alone.
