Crystal Clear, Zac and Jacqui Poulier with Helen Jones

Published: Wednesday 11th of January 2012


Sitting in Stillwater's recently renovated, light filled dining room, gazing across the shimmering lake while enjoying a menu sourced almost exclusively from local suppliers you could be almost anywhere in the world and yet, at the same time, know you are somewhere that is uniquely Peninsula in style.

Well known for its excellent fine dining and wining options, Stillwater at Crittenden, owned by husband and wife team Jacqui and Zac Poulier, is a prime example of the best the Peninsula has to offer. What you may not realise, however, is the years of work and vision required to create this marvellous space, all starting with a chance meeting in London.

Husband and wife team Jacqui and Zac Poulier had known each other for a few years before that fateful rendezvous in the UK capital – both started out in the hospitality industry in Melbourne, Zac as a chef under Trevor Bilney at Rockman's Regency and Jacqui working front of house for several fine establishments.

Their focus now is enjoying their family and the Peninsula while doing what they do best. 'We want people to feel as though they are guests in our home and give them a wonderful food and wine experience. If that doesn't happen then we're not doing our job.'

As many satisfied customers will attest, Jacqui & Zac Poulier are doing their job very well indeed.

Open 7 days per week for lunch and dinner each year round but over summer, from the 27th December right thru to the 14th January open every day for lunch and dinner. Bookings essential.
