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

I had an impromptu lunch at Ezard last week which was both great value and delicious. We all tried the set three course menu which offered different entree size dishes which were perfectly presented, subtle and delivered taste excitement. This accompanied by a glass of wine for a very reasonable $55 per person. Service was excellent - friendly, efficient and... More

High expectations from reviews. Service was very good and attentive, the surroundings mellow and pleasant, even quiet enough to talk and hear. We had the degustation menus with 1 vegetarian. The presentation was good but we were disappointed with many of the dishes, mainly because the combinations were inappropriate - e.g. the delicate, well cooked duck was totally spoilt by... More

Came here with a friend of mine for some random dinner night out. We were lucky to get a table with only 30mins booking prior arriving. The restaurant is very cosy and white table cloth made the place fancy. We were ready for the pricey bill. We ordered set menu for two and two bottles of wine. The service was... More

We had high expectations of Ezard given it's 2 hat rating in the good food guide. The service from the wait staff was lackluster, no one seemed interested in their jobs... Even the food was questionable. We had some dishes with very weird flavour combinations. For a 2 hat restaurant we were sorely disappointed...how they maintain 2 hats is beyond... More

Took the gf here for our anniversary and wow. The degustation was spot on with each course being flavorsome and the wines equally as fulfilling. Compliments to the chef.

Every time we go to Melbourne, we make a point of eating at Ezard. Not cheap, but for our money, the best restaurant there. This visit, in 3 weeks, we ate there 3 times. There are always 3 wonderful salts. My husband starts with an oyster shooter - he loves these. The steamed crab dumplings with salmon roe in a... More

This place is definitely one of those "special occasions" restaurants. I've taken my family and friends here many times. The service and food is always on point. Love this place and will be returning in the near future!
