We found the Meat & Wine company on the internet on a day trip to Melbourne. We were desperate for some decent ribs and the web site made some good promises. They all turned out to be true. Between the four of us we tried the pork, beef and lamb ribs thus being able to give a fair review. All... More

Liked: Seated upstairs with a great view of Melbourne and the river right outside the floor to ceiling window. Very attentive staff who came right away with menus and advice on which wine. Very good menu with a wide range of options from $25-$75 a meal (depending on what you get). Even included a few vegetarian options. Was my birthday... More

Do try the bruschetta entreè. It is a large serving and full of healthy goodness. We had the ribs and rib eye duo and we shared the red wine sangria. I have not had such a great steak in a long time. The prices are a bit on the high side but the quality is there. The decor is interesting... More

My husband had been given a gift certificate from our children to dine here. We were stunned when we booked to be told that we would only have the table for a set length of time. Who has ever heard of that?? No wonder the service is quick - except when the waiter disappears with your credit card and takes... More

The food and service at M&Wco is always great. Their burgers are completely amazing and the service was fast, friendly and smiling! We also shared a desert platter this time, I can safely say it's on my list of things to eat again in the near future!

Busy, busy with a great vibe. I had fillet steak which was arguably the best I have ever had. This is not an inexpensive place to eat but I will return because of the service, quality and general positive atmosphere.

This was the first restaurant I visited upon visiting Melbourne from Scotland and it was by far my favourite out of the many that followed. The steak was the best I have ever had, cooked exactly how I wanted and just beautiful. The atmosphere was lovely, the table was lovely, and the staff were lovely (even putting up with my... More

We love eating here, we travel from an hour away and it's always amazing. The food is perfect and the service is very friendly with meals coming out at reasonable times. Couldn't recommend it more.

I would had liked to eat kangaroo tonight, that's why I went to this well-rated restaurant in Southbank. I'm in Melbourne alone, sometimes it happens when I am abroad for business. Unfortunately, at the entrance, the waiter blocked me saying that it would had been very difficult to find a table for one person only. He don't even think to... More

I will remember this restaurant for the excellent service. Good ratio of trained staff to customers on a very busy Friday lunch. We had steak and and pork ribs. The wagyu was very tender but it was lacking in the rich flavour that a proper wagyu has. The full slab of ribs was huge but the marinade was also lacking... More
