A sunny Melbourne day..an express lunch in a calm,comfortable space.. Waiters young, experienced and charming. A three course menu and a glass of wine. The king fifh sashimi was fresh with beautifully balanced accompaniments. A fig asparagus and bresaola salad just perfect. A crunchy pork belly unctuous ,and totally satisfying. This is a very clever concept ,executed by professionals.

Great degustation and wine to match. I think the standouts were the 'salad of figs... with the air dried beef', japanese inspired oyster shooter, cured swordfish and last, but most certainly not least, the wagyu beef with the matched wine. Expensive but delicious.

Great food, very well thought out menu. Our family went here for my brothers 21st birthday. We ordered the degustation which was beautifully matched with wines and champagne. Only criticism is the serving sizes- I did leave a little hungry. Very good wine list with an emphasis on grower producers.

We enjoyed a lot of restaurants during our stay in Melbourne, but for me this was the best. It's not cheap; the bill for 3 of us including wine was $500, but I didn't object - it was well worth it. I started with the scallops and followed this with the ham hock. The scallops were very good; the ham... More

This is my second time at Ezard. It was full when we arrived for our 945 booking so a complimentary drink may have been a nice touch as we waited in the lounge. Our Italian waiter was a joy and we had the three course set menu. Food superb... lovely restaurant.

We came on a Saturday night for a birthday celebration dinner with family. The restaurant was very busy but the waiting staff were very attentive. We ordered the degustation menu with one vegetarian. As far as the food, I really enjoyed all of the dishes with the exception of the trout dish which the table all agreed was just a... More

We dined at Ezard in February whilst on holiday in Melbourne and I can honestly say it stands out as one of the best meals I have ever had in a restaurant. The gnocchi was outstanding and I couldn't fault any aspect of anything we were served. The setting was quite formal but the atmosphere was relaxed.

An early Friday night dinner during our latest visit to Melbourne turned out to be the best meal of the trip! Service was amazingly quick and hosts extremely accommodating and lovely. We ordered a three course meal at the set price from the à la carte selection, each course more divine than the last! My favourites of the evening were... More

Our first impression of HAUTE CUISINE of Australia was this restaurant. The Melbournians like to say that Melbourne is the culinary capital of Australia. Maybe. But it is just that. In a very beautiful vast country with a very small population that did not do their homework of the culinary art. The restaurant is in the basement of a hotel.... More
