You cant go wrong with this Place. Location and the views Are superb. Perfect place to sit and watch the city go by. Food is incredibly creative. Full of flavors. They never overbook. I have been here twice and Not let down. Good selection at the bar as well. Rooftop bar is a great start up place but that needs... More

I live in Melbourne and I eat out a lot but I hadn't been to this spot until last night. It use to be more of a fine dining place but has recently changed into something more casual. We were half expecting the menu to be full of things like chips and hamburgers and were surprised to find lots of... More

What a wonderful view of Melbourne by night. Trees lit in St Kilda Rd, lights of the MCG and AAMI park ..views of the Yarra...all from the table at TAXI . It does not get any better..... And to top that - excellent service and wonderful food. A credit to Melbourne.

Wife and I were looking forward to a 10 year wedding anniversary dinner experience that fit the occasion. Our expectations were surpassed when we chose to dine at the Taxi Dining Room. The staff were so professional from A to Z and the table we were given had the most magnificent view of the Yarra river. Thank you all for... More

Even after lots of changes , the food in Taxi Kitchen (new name) is still excellent. Dishes are interesting and well balanced. You can choose from small, medium or large dishes. It is more casual dining now, but still very good.

My husband and I arranged a quick lunch here as a precursor to a Tassie wine tasting in Fed. square. Atmosphere far more relaxed and casual sans Michael Lambie. We shared two entrees; the candied pork with shredded coconut and Asian herbs and the pepper quail followed by the yellow curry of Cod. All were terrific and some of the... More

Taxi kitchen is a busy upbeat place to eat. We went on a Saturday night so it was buzzing. The food is fusion and very tasty, and the service is good. Simon our waiter was knowledgable about the food , and was very slick with the food. I had the specials which were very tasty and well presented. It can... More

Went for dinner and loved the fusion food. Candied pork with. Int, grated coconut and sweet chili a winner. Great menu divided up into small medium, large plates. Main was a thin wagyu steak with loads of lemon and a green bed on top. Gnocchi with lamb, mint, peas and feta looked amazing. A bottle of ten minute tractor Pinot... More

Went here last Friday with a group of five. Service was quick. The food was well presented and menu was varied. Good advice from wait staff. We had a lamb shoulder for sharing which was great except the vegetables were sparse and totally inadequate. Wine menu adequate. The restaurant itself was very noisy and for the older patrons difficult to... More

I eat out in Melbourne at good restaurants 2-3 times a week. The view at Taxi is great, the entrees were good but the mains were horrible. Over poked salmon with a black garlic sauce that just did not work either alone or with the salmon. For $39 you'd expect something more refined and with balanced flavours. The lamb gnocchi... More
