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!

House made Hash Browns

Great décor and good choice of music combined with decent coffee and great food makes this place worth checking out. Make sure you try the house made hash browns, they are to die for!

We were staying in the Adina so used the room service option quite frequently. The chicken BBQ pizza is divine! and so is the Pavlova.

Great little place for drinks, delicious foods and the atmosphere is superb. Must commend the service, the boys are on the ball for efficiency!! Nothing beats returning to a place for breaky and happy hour drinks and the staff remember what your having. Awesome! Will definitely return here when back in Melbourne.
