Delicious!

I went here twice during my week long stay in Melbourne - I absolutely loved it! I am not a vegetarian but the freshness and flavour of the food kept me coming back! Have the raw cheesecake - it's bliss!

I just love vegie bar. Their large menu has various options for vegans and even for raw-foodies! Burgers are to die for and I've never had boring dish here. My meat-eating biyfriend enjoys their food lots as well :)The only thing is that the restaurant gets often super crowded and sadly customer service suffers because of that. Still one of... More

My daughter and I ate here Saturday night. The place is very busy and you can't pre-book on Friday, Saturday or Sunday, so you need to get in early or wait for a table. They have a bar at the back where you can sit down while you do. They take your details beforehand and so are well aware that... More

Monday night and the joint was packed! Food and wine were yummy. I had the chef's pizza - they could ease off on the balsamic, but otherwise, very good. My friend had the curry and loved it.

We accidentally stumbled into this restaurant and I must say, it was the best veggie meal I ever had! I love meat so this is a real top thumbs up! If I could eat like this every day, I would become a full time veggie. We had the tofu burger as we only wanted a snack but all the portions... More

Vegie Bar is always a favourite place of mine. Considering the kind of delicious fare on offer, it's great value, as you can usually get away with a fantastic and filling meal for around AUD 15. The drinks are definitely worth ordering, too. I hear good things about the dandelion lattes, but my heart lies with the banana and honey... More

Well, this was my first time at a vegetarian restaurant. It won't be my last, for sure. There were four of us, and the place was packed with diners of all ages. I ordered the gnocchi and my daughter had gado gado, the two children had an enormous serve of chips. We also shared some wontons, everything we ate was... More

If you are vegetarian or especially vegan, this place is a MUST! Really good food, fast service and really good prices. Plates are huge and it's really hard to finish a main. Huge choice of starters, mains, salads, special dish of the day, desserts and drinks. Seriously, this place was amazing and I can't wait to be back there on... More
