Fine dining institution Nel restaurant is bringing a whole new world of nostalgia to Sydney, with the return of its Once Upon a Time degustation. The Disney-themed feast was first created by Executive Chef Nelly Robinson — and the third iteration, which was meant to take place in mid-2021 until lockdown hit, is it's most fanciful yet.

Available from Tuesday, January 18–Saturday, April 9, the 11-course menu features the 'Hundred Acre Wood', a honey-glazed confit pork belly with a Winnie the Pooh-themed twist — and 'Boo's Best Friend', a white chocolate and mint parfait that's designed to resemble Monster Inc protagonists Mike and Sully. Drifting away from the animated classics, the 'Dead Man's Chest; serves up red squid marinated in spiced beetroot juice and topped with a black garlic emulsion.

And if all that isn't enough, you can also opt for a drinks package, which includes paired cocktails and wines for $105. While the menu is inspired by your childhood, you'll need that adult salary to enjoy it, with food setting you back $145 per person.

The Once Upon a Time menu is available for dinner Tuesday–Saturday and for lunch on Saturday.
