Protege is an exciting new casual-style eatery under the guidance of previous Eat Out Chef of the Year, La Colombes Scot Kirton. Scot is planning an experience that is both casual, comfortable and very much one that the locals can call ‘home. His philosophy and approach to food lies in the fusion of Asian and French cuisine and the pursuit of excellence and perfection on each plate, resulting in numerous local and international awards.

The menu will be based on an a la carte offering where guests are free to select as many or as few courses as they desire. Stephen will be working with local suppliers to keep the menu as fresh and as seasonal as possible.

The restaurant space has been designed around the central show kitchen with al fresco dining planned at both ends of the restaurant.

Protege will be open for breakfast from 7:30am-10am, for lunch from 12pm-2:00pm and for dinner from 6:00pm-8:30pm. Hotel guests at LQF will enjoy a complimentary breakfast.
