Reliable, good value, and heart, the Waiters is a Melbourne institution. The staff are always busy but helpful. The food is consistent without being outstanding. The wine is....well....quaffable. Recommend a booking for Friday lunch. Otherwise you're usually safe to walk on in...

Situated up a set of old, timber stairs the first impression is one of doubt. But, once inside, the camaraderie of the waitresses, and the boss, is first class, as is the quality and quantity of food. A haunt it seems of nearby public service managers, and city professionals, the restaurant has an old world charm of its own and... More

If you are looking for somewhere to go for a romantic dinner, go somewhere else. If looking for an honest and good Italian meal, here is where you need to go. It can be noisy, crowded but find your way up the stairs, sit back and enjoy a glass of wine (BYO and licensed). The pasta is fresh and depending... More

If you are after a simple, honest and Authentic Italian meal served to you by a friendly wait staff, you must check this place out. The place has a very interesting history , and the recent refurbishment job done by a well-known Melbourne architecture firm , which has been basically documenting the original conditions of the restaurant and replacing all...

While in Melbourne a few years back, it was recommended to us that we visit the Waiters Club to enjoy some good Italian food. The entrance to the club is off Meyers Lane and you climb some old timber stairs and enter into a restaurant which has décor dating back many decades. However, the greeting by staff is very friendly,... More

So now the dear old Waiters Club becomes our local. Fantastic pasta served till all hours, washed down with cheap wine. This place is wonderful, right down to the old Laminex tables with no space for a pin between them, and the blackboard menus with no prices! Always a crowd waiting to get in but the line moves fast.

Recommended to us by a friend, this quirky restaurant, hidden away down a little lane and up wooden stairs is a gem! Laminex tables, Italian travel posters on the wall, it reminded us of Italian restaurants we used to go to 30 or 40 years ago. Great food - light gnocchi as entree, delicious saltimbocca and veal Marsala, BYO and... More

If your looking for somewhere with classy surrounds and candle lit dining steer clear, but if its great food and rustic surrounds go to The Waiters Restaurant at 20 Meyers Place Melbourne, but remember that if you order Wine expect to drink it from water glasses and not wine glasses, not that makes the wine taste any different far from...

This is the second time we have been to this restaurant and once again we were rewarded with a sumptuous meal. I had the flounder. The flesh was sweet and superbly cooked. I didn't bother with the vegetables though as the fish was enough for me. My partner had the "real" veal which was also lip smacking good. We didn't... More

If it's good, honest, Italian fare that you're after - look no further. If it's a classy or romantic ambiance you're after - keep looking. That said, this place wins on multiple fronts for me - the food, the price, the food, the promptness of service, the food, the availability of wine (limited, but still available), and finally, the food....
