The restaurant in the Southbank area is one of a chain of outlets ‘specialising’ in steaks and various meats. It was very popular and has recently undergone renovations. When I was last here I had a most enjoyable meal but sadly this was not the case on this visit. Service was variable with some new wait-staff obviously learning the ropes,... More

Been here twice now. Had steaks both time. They are pretty good but at $49 for a steak and chips they should be. These steaks seem to all be angus beef which i reckon has great flavour and texture but for those of you that prefer a tasteless eye fillet that is really tender and you hardly have to chew... More

The meat (a porterhouse) was average and overprized. San Pellegrino costed more than a glass of wine (8 bucks) I won't suggest it.

Personally i think the ribs here are better than Hurricane's grill. The ribs are smaller but the meat are tender and juicer. Their hot sauce is great as well though i forget what was the name of it. I heard you must book way in advance to have a meal there, lucky for me as i was a visitor and... More

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!
