Description: This hip urban space in Melbourne's CBD is a welcoming retreat from the cold with its effervescent fit-out, attentive service and creative cuisine. Queen Street Rescue Restaurant Bar dishes out contemporary Australian fare with unique flavour combinations. The restaurant has a rustic, weathered look about it, from the shabby chic wall panels in white, baby green and lilac hues to the long timber tables with their bucolic-style wooden chairs. Great food, wine and some old fashioned table service where the wait staff do more than just take your order but make you feel like you've been coming here for years! We also cater for those needing a Gluten Free menu!

Three visits over the course of the past year has confirmed that this cafe (which opens at 6.30 am for breakfast) can be relied upon for quality meals at reasonable prices and with friendly and efficient service. On the last visit, enjoyed the 'catch of the day' for dinner - recommended for casual dining.

Great menu, not huge but something for everyone, good specials. Can recommend the pizzas, gnocchi and steaks. Excellent drinks menu with good selection of wines by the glass. Good coffee. Really busy in the evenings, great atmosphere. Service efficient and very friendly. Keep it up! (this restaurant is attached to the Adina apartment hotel, they also provide room service)

My boyfriend and I recently arrived in Melbourne and were surprised at the price of alcohol out here. Luckily we came across QSR who saved us by having a great happy hour, in a really good bar/restaurant. The staff are really friendly, and the location is great.
