We were supposed to dine at Cookie, however our baby sitter ran late and we missed our booking. The Cookie staff were really helpful and got us in upstairs at The Toff In Town. What serendipity! Cookie is great, I think The Toff In Town is actually better. To start with, the atmosphere was very funky, cool music, lighting, less... More

Came here with a group of friends because we couldn't get a booking at Cookie and we were pleasantly surprised. The food was really tasty, recommend the BETEL LEAF SALAD WITH SALMON and the ROASTED DUCK, SNOW PEA & COCONUT SALAD. But be prepared to chase down the wait staff, the service here is terrible, we most probably would of... More

I haven't taken anything...just a drink in the dance hall but it wasn't so good. The music was terrible for dancing on Friday night. Music from 90s and some similar stuff. I had fun just thanks to my friends and my partner. NOTHING SPECIAL!!!

Toff in the town has it all. It's great for catching up with friends for some yummy food and amazing cocktails. I highly recommend the Long Island Ice Tea although make sure your are bit driving they are pretty potent. There are also great local and international bands to see in the band room. Tickets are always reasonably price and... More

A great place to stop after a day in the city. Very Melbourne. A great range of drinks - not cheap but a great atmosphere and good service.

Came here for a drink after dinner on our weekend away in Melbourne. The Toff was recommend highly to us. Take the stairs up and have a look at all the posters on the way up. The Toff presented as a quirky little place with a really ambient bar. Great staff and tasty cocktails - pretty pricey though.

We made a booking months in advance for a carriage! We received a small table and told that they can't put us in one! We had to call a waiter when he was walking past to order or food and drinks after being there a hour! It took 15 mins to get the drinks! Another hour and a half we... More

My nephews took us here and it was fabulous! Best marguerite ever and the quirky booths and tasty tapas style of eating, along with a good wine made for a great night. We had after dinner drinks on the rooftop bar and loved the "Melbourne" feel to this locally known gem.

The food and drinks were great, food was delicious, lovely strong flavours... They have cute little booths which we weren't able to get, but would have made for a great experience. Highly recommend!
