A true French Brasserie experience. the dishes are not heavily "worked" but at the same time are flavoursome, fresh and interesting. the service is friendly and the ambience is relaxed. Bon apetit.

The owner is a great host, real character. Small cozy restaurant. The food was also very good, little pricey but it's BYO wine only which is great. We had a great night.

Jenny our host always makes us feel at home. We just keep on coming back with friends, work colleagues and even hosted a murder mystery night here. This is beautiful French food, the quality of the steaks and seafood is impeccable. I can't go past the Moules marinière with crusty bread followed by a peppered steak and a rhubarb crumble....

I try to eat here every time I visit Melbourne. The food is excellent (French bistro style, high quality but not schmancy), there are plenty of French and local wines by the glass, and the hostess treats us like family. The setting is comfortably low-key: it's a place to enjoy a relaxed dinner with friends, not to "be seen". We... More

Lovely restaurant, owner very friendly and the food excellent. French onion soup was very good was a little too sweet for my husband but I thought it was very good. For mains my husband had the eye fillet with the mustard glaze and I had the porterhouse. Both were cooked perfectly and had good flavour, they are accompanied by a... More

After an amazing evening of great food and service I feel bad that I haven't visited this restaurant before now. We took a special 1996 bottle with us to enjoy and it was carefully filtered and decanted for us. We enjoyed amazing scallops, goats cheese and duck liver pate for entrée. Between us we had duck, lamb and quail. All... More

We found this restaurant a few years ago when we were diving through Carlton on our way to the airport. Parking is easy, which is an issue in the inner 'burbs! We returned with our adult daughters to enjoy a steak, as we were in Melbourne for a reunion. We were not disappointed, the meal was delicious and steaks tender... More

Jenny at Moretons is always affable & warmly welcomes customers with a friendly smile & greeting. She has culinary experience in London & Paris. The food is of the highest quality & well presented. This restaurant is one of the few remaining in Melbourne which allows BYO. If you're looking for a quality French Brasserie with a relaxed atmosphere, ambience... More

Such a beautiful little Brasserie on Melbournes well known Rathdowne Street in Carlton. Great Steaks, fantastic family friendly service, it's like a little taste of Paris, but, with a truly lovely hostess. You get such a warm feeling when you eat here, it's like a good therapy session, you leave feeling that you are, important! Don't be surprised if you... More
