Had the fish and Chips. Very tasty. And try their Naked Pale Beer, a foggy pale with a hint of bananas, don't ask me why... Very good.

A Melbourne staple featuring "Chloe" on the second floor. A must see when visiting Melbourne. Friendly staff and average food. A pint of microbrew will run you $11 so bring your wallet. Directly across the street from the Dlinders Street Station in the CBD.

Popped in for lunch. They have a good selection of beer on tap and the parma that I ordered was very decent. Service was more efficient than friendly.

It was absolutely jam packed with NSW & QLD footy fans in town for the State of Origin at the MCG. The staff did well to serve as quickly as possible the thirsty masses and the friendly rivalry banter was fun but I do apologise for my friend who was trying her best to pop all the QLD balloons :)...
