Came here for a meal before nightly goal tour. Two course meal for $40. Lovely staff and delicious food. Only got to choose from selected menu but I am sure the extensive menu would have even been better. Worth a try if you are at that end of town.

What a great find! Excellent food, amazing beer and wine selection, impeccable service. Chef's experience in Europe shines though along with the owner's love of fine wines and beers. Highly recommended.

Have eaten here many times and food is consistently very good and very often excellent - from charcuterie to duck/pork/rabbit to steaks and great chips. Wine list has interesting variety. Just beware that service can be slow so if you don't order an entree you can be sitting for a while before main course arrives. But food is worth waiting... More

Had a delightful meal with friends. Set in a lovely Melbourne pub atmosphere, but serving anything but pub food. Very high quality and decently priced food, coupled with nicely personal service meant a perfect night out.

A family gathering for Sunday lunch, we chose from a set menu, including unusual grain and artichoke salads for entree, a generous porcini risotto and tasty snapper dish for mains, accompanied by fresh salads and very hot chips. Presentation was exceptional, lots of colors and imagination in all the dishes, the use of flowers was particularly attractive, especially in the... More

This is quite possibly the quintessential Melbourne Pub, great beers on tap and a moreish selection of bar meals in a cosy Public Bar with an open fire in the winter and great seating outside for the warmer weather, the Restaurant is another story, right up there with Melbourne's best who ever is in charge of that Kitchen deserves to...

I have eaten here a number of times when visiting Melbourne and always had good quality meals, from a menu that changes regulalarly. Although not cheap, the value is excellent.

This hotel has recently been upgraded and renovated and it's really worth the visit. I had a dinner for 20 guests for my 50th birthday in the function room. Everyone rang me the day after and raved about the food and the wines. 3 course set menu including wines 2 whites and 2 reds $55/head which was very reasonable and... More

A welcoming place to hold a small function or gathering of friends. The food is above average and reasonably priced. We had three courses and the neon green apple crumble is sure to generate attention from your friends. Just as well tastes good. Wine list was compact and had some good selections. Service was efficient if not a touch on... More

We had a table in the back restaurant that was perfect for the small birthday gathering with the right amount of space, mood and privacy through correctly spaced tables. Service was very attentive but professionally discreet. Appetizer platter with unusual mix of foie gras, prunes , chorizo, etc. definitely a taste sensation. My less ambitious steak for the main was... More
