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!

Went downstairs from the apartments expecting a 'hotel' type experience. Nothing like that with a really good ambience, tasty food and excellent and efficient service. Had the haloumi cheese entree and the prawn and chorizio pizza which were excellent

Staff were very attentive, there was a good selection on the menu (my chicken risotto was beautiful), and they have a fantastic wine by the glass selection

A warm, cozy and relaxed little cafe that has impressed us each visit to melbourne. Lots of variety on the menu, from tasty treats to healthy options, plenty to keep us satisfied and returning. Activity packs for the kids are a nice touch. Plenty of gluten-free options for my coeliac daughter. We'll be back!

As soon as we walked in we were greeted with a smile. We had breakfast on Grand Final morning and our order did not take very long. The cafe was half full at the time of our order but soon became quite busy. The French toast with grilled banana and maple syrup and bacon on the side was delicious. My... More

I went here out of pure convenience of location to my accommodation and was pleasantly surprised. The staff were friendly and the menu had a good selection to choose from and the meals I ordered were nice.

It's always off putting when you go out for a meal and the service is terrible. Once this line is crossed everything else about the place becomes awful. The timing of the meals was terrible. Some were finished while others hadn't even started. The wrong meals were given, and one was even forgotten. We pointed this out to the waiter... More

Service here was faultless. Smiley, happy waiters who went out of their way to give me what I wanted and I was in a particularly fussy mood when I ate here over the last few days. The coffee in the mornings was stunning. Beautiful, rich flavour with no bitterness made just the way I ordered. The food was fresh but... More

We stayed in Adina Apartments and did not want to go anywhere far. Every order was hot, delicious and fast food! (Even the coffee) Service was delightful and very nice atmosphere.
