Alexandra Haynes

Lalla Rookh Head Chef

Jeremy Prus

Sommelier & Wine Store Manager


Alexandra's approach to food is steeped in her experience of seasons spent exploring the landscape of Italy, drawing on memories of sharing meals with family and friends, and uncovering culinary variation throughout the regions. At Lalla Rookh she draws on the best produce from land and sea, to create a fresh, modern Italian menu.


Growing up in Melbourne, her dad was Head Chef at hatted restaurant Florentino's, her mum a force to be reckoned with in the family kitchen. This early introduction to the best of Italian cuisine at home and overseas was a start in food that eventually brought her to the west. Alexandra carved out a reputation in Perth as Head Chef at il Lido Canteen in Cottesloe. Her modern Italian journey continues at Lalla Rookh.



Jeremy curates a list perfect for those taking their first steps into wine appreciation, through to the seasoned oenophile. Qualified with the Court of Master Sommeliers in New York, he’s regarded amongst Australia’s top Sommeliers.


Jeremy's passion for introducing regional producers and a strong advocacy of the natural wine philosophy is evident across the wine offering at Lalla Rookh in both the Wine Store and the Bar & Eating House.
