They ran out of the beer I was drinking. I had a greasy butter knife dropped on me by the waiter and water was almost spilled on my phone by the waiter while refilling my glass. But my pork belly was unbelievably good. My colleagues had the wagyu steak and said it was a bit tough. Go the pork belly.... More

We ate here on a thursday night in winter. The place was warm food and wine was beautiful and great service. The highlight was the apple and rhubarb crumble. Will definately be back to sample more from the menu.

Ate here a few times, Really nice beer menu,gothic sort of interior feel . The serving sizes are really good, food is tasty. Orders come out quick, staff are friendly. Looks like it would be a really nice place in the summer/spring.

Although it was fairly dark where we were seated, the food was magnificent. The braised lamb shanks were to die for as was the crisp 12 hour pork belly.

This was a real surprise. What was once the Belgian Beer Cafe is a very decent night out. The dining room in the old pavilion is beautiful and although rumour has it that it is going to be renovated, I hope they keep the old bench seating and the other touches that make it unique and atmospheric. I had no... More

Ever wonder how to get the perfect Char-grill taste? This place gets it right. I love the potatoes chats. Pity the weather has become cold. Sitting indoors make me feel like a Viking.

In my recent trip to Melbourne, I was delighted to find this local bar / bistro near my hotel Great service on all three nights that I ate here which was matched by really good tasting beer. There is a nice selection of dishes and sharing platters with an outdoor BBQ/ bar for busy Friday nights. For small groups or... More
