Welcome to the main Terrace Bistro, where the culinary delights are created by Head Chef, Jed Dickson and his dedicated team. Starting his chef apprenticeship at just 16, now almost 20 years later, Jed calls the Peninsula home.  From working in Red Hill and regional surrounds for a decade, Jed earned the mandate of Head Chef for the Rye Hotel and bought on board with him his trusty and worthy team of skilled artisans.

Our highly qualified chefs provide an extensive selection for appeal to all taste buds including vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free offerings among our wide selection of daily specials.
