Gotta love this place. Great vibe, plenty of outdoor seating in the sun or undercover and lots of waiters dressed in skimpy little numbers. Quite a chilled atmosphere with a fabulous Aperol Spritz jugs.

Had cocktails for the first time at Madame Brussels on a boring Wednesday night. The theme attracted us. Fun waiter outfits and attentive friendly service. The jug of cocktails were tasty but there were no sign of alcohol. I am a very light drinker and there were no effect from the cocktails at all even after 2 glasses. We did... More

Liked: The menu, hilarious. The scenery and the view. The Cocktails were great. The cheese was delicious and loads of bread which was a nice surprise. Disliked. There were not many waiters, and the jugs don't pour well, we lost about a glass of cocktail whilst pouring. Bad design.

This is a hidden gem inside what looks like an office building up few stairs and then lift to the 3rd floor. The menu is naughty with tongue firmly in its cheek. I had a watermelon cocktail $19 it came in a small jug with slices of real watermelon and I def felt a little light headed after!! Lovely. It's... More

What makes Melbourne great? The quirky and the peculiar. Everything about Madame Brussels makes you laugh. The extensive menu of drinks with the saucy descriptions; the staff who happily play along with a nudge and a wink; and the view of the city is awesome. Sometimes you don't know whether you're just in some inner city house of a friend,... More

What a terrific place for friends to get together for any occasion. Quirky open roof top bar, at top end of Collins St. Great atmosphere, friendly staff and the cocktails were so much fun. Will definitely be back

Recently attended Madame Brussels for afternoon tea, a group function. Delicious food - scones, cakes, sausage rolls, sandwiches - all home made. A wide selection of drinks all served by helpful and friendly staff. The decor is from a time gone by, very elegant. Highly recommended.

Dropped by for tea, good selection, loved the fondue and the chicken sandwich. Names are much longer than I can recall. Very artistic. Typical venue for girlie parties. Lives up to its name.

Great venue for a balmy summer evening. Enjoy some cocktails or a beer and just enjoy the atmosphere. The staff is friendly. You get what you pay for. Make sure you read the story of Madame Brussels before you go there.... Favorite spot for after work drinks for people working in CBD.

This was a lovely place to enjoy a drink on a balmy November night in Melbourne. The various cocktails that are served in small to large jugs are a great idea for sharing with others. I know that the theme of the place is supposed to be very 'girly' and that would be my only complaint, the wire outdoor chairs... More
