Adrian is the King of Meat

It may appear on the expensive side, but we left so satisfied with the meal. Food, drinks and service. All great.

A lazy Sunday lunch to celebrate my birthday, where we received top notch service & food. The waitress was knowledgeable when we enquired about various dishes & there was just the right amount of waiting between courses.

Went for Mother's Day dinner. Upon ordering they had run out of the ribs special, so we had to settle for the stuffed chicken breast. That was less than ordinary, it lacked flavor and was dry. The pork roast was beautiful, no complaints there. Flounder was undercooked as the flash was raw in some sections to the point where blood... More

I've wanted to dine at La Luna for quite a while as I love chef Adrian Richardson. I wasn't disappointed, the food was fabulous as was the service for the most part. It is a very small venue & the tables are crammed so hence it's very noisy, not for a romantic interlude but we were okay with that. Our... More

Dined here last Saturday night as a 70th birthday celebration, and there were approximately 30 people and all agreed this was one of the best restaurants they have been to. The staff were excellent and had a calmness about them, when serving a group of this size. You did not notice them, they were very attentive. The food was simply... More

La Luna is now a Melbourne institution and deservedly so! We went to La Luna last night on a work visit to Melbourne from Sydney. We have been there many times before and I just have to say that the service and the food are still to die for. We shared the tasting plate of the home made small goods.... More

Our family celebrated a 70th birthday at La Luna with dinner on a Friday evening. Although the restaurant was packed and we had a reservation, we arrived early but the restaurant staff went out of their way to ensure we could sit at the bar with a glass of wine until our table was ready. The food was awesome, the... More

Excellent hanger steak medium raw for $40 (not on the list). Acoustics not perfect, but we had a good time and great service.

This was our first visit to La Luna and we had a really lovely night. The food was super - big flavour and generous servings. The staff are friendly and very efficient. I can't pick a favourite meal, it was all great. If we lived in Melbourne it would be our favourite place to dine out.

Our family celebrated my mum's 81st birthday with lunch at La Luna on Sunday. She loves to watch Good Chef Bad Chef so I really wanted to take her there, not to mention I had been wanting to go too! We had a room upstairs and I was immediately taken by the lovely ambience. The food was amazing and service... More
