Time Out says

This luxe Potts Pointer proves fancy modern French cooking doesn't have to cost you a fortune

Affordable luxury? In Potts Point? Is there even such a thing? Well yes, yes there is – and it just so happens to come in the form of a five-course degustation with matched wine(!) for a mere $100(!!) at Métisse. The elegant progressive French restaurant – headed up by chef, author and TV personality Opel Khan – aims to bring back the good old days of haute cuisine, reimagined in new and exciting ways. That might mean duck à l'orange compressed into a terrine or even a riff on tournedos Rossini, the legendary classic starring eye fillet, foie gras and truffle.

The value for money is just as real if you order a la carte, with entrées clocking in at less than $30 and mains that hover between $32 and $58 – pricey on paper, maybe, but not so much when you consider butter-poached lobster ravioli with lobster velouté is up for grabs. And what’s more, a solid half of the concise French-leaning wine list lands at under $100. Who said fine dining had to burn a hole in your wallet?
