My mum and I would always have lunch or dinner here when we were in the area, however I'm not sure if it has changed hands or what but the standards seemed to have slipped. The food is still nice, just not to the same perfect standards they used to be.... hopefully it has improved since I last visited, as... More

Great service for our party of 14. The food was magnificent. None of us, apart from our boss, had been here before and would highly recommend it.

After many years we had dinner again at Walter's a few weeks ago. I was really looking forward to it, as I had dined there before and it was excellent. It was a bit disappointing this time around. I had salmon, which was undercooked (most of it was actually completely raw), even though the taste of everything was beautiful. The... More

I had a work lunch here on a nice sunny day and the location and food was great. Sitting out on the verandah was nice. The food was great, the service was good but they did forget us as we were the only ones sitting out side. All in all great.

We had lunch at Walters Wine Bar, the views of the Yarra are spectacular. The service was excellent. We felt the food was overpriced, there are many restaurants in the precinct what offer express lunches which are better value. The food was well presented and delicious.

Despite not having a booking, the staff were happy to let us sit at the bar and were most attentive during our time there. As the restaurant cleared out, quite late, we were asked whether we wanted to eat and a table made available. The seafood entrees were tasty, however the ceasar salad was uninspiring and was mainly lettuce tipped... More

I had booked a few weeks ago through a Dimmi 50% off deal for a night for me and my husband to catch up after 10 days away from each other - so we wanted something a bit special. Unbeknownst to me, hubby had also contacted Walters to ask for a special bit of attention - just an icing sugar... More

Walter's is an institution - from its early days in the suburbs, to Southgate in the early 90's. So with friends in from Hong Kong, Walter's was our 'catch-up dinner'. The waitress commenced telling us the specials whilst we were seating ourselves. We explained we wanted to order wines first, but to be truthful, there was actually little to entice... More
