Quirky place, great food and service

Spent an enjoyable winter evening before movies sipping delicious gluhwein and eating cheese platter whilst enjoying the view. Even though it was a cold evening, we enjoyed sitting outside under the heaters and with the blankets provided. Service is friendly and helpful. Recommended.

Definitely a must for cocktails! Decked out in artificial grass, old school benches and waiters in tennis whites! Funky roof top bar with quirky menu of cocktails.

Such a cute place for a garden party event! Recently visited Madame Brussels for a Mother's Day event! It was so cute, perfect bite size servings of delicious food (organised from LuxBite South Yarra I believe) and amazing cocktails (try the Lip Smacker)! Great place to celebrate with Mum!

I took my lovely to Madam Brussels when we were in Melbourne. It was a delightful and delicious little rooftop cafe and garden. Travelling upstairs the cafe characters invite you into their very white cute almost 'Alice in wonderland' like world. Cute little umbrellas for weather and sweet scents make this rooftop cafe a must visit!

Our group was very split on our pre dinner Madame Brussels experience. The women loved it and the beer swilling blokes were a little uncomfortable. This is unashamedly a very girly venue. Not where I would go for a beer before the footy but they have a great variety of imported and local beers as well as bubbles, but the... More

Another funky rooftop bar. It has an interesting past. Specialises in cocktails & no denying it going back in time you would feel like a customer.....

Went there with a couple of friends and got a bottle of wine. Good recommendation by waitstaff, friendly service and very interesting place. Downside is the walk up of 5 stories.

This is a different way to enjoy drinks and a platter on a Melbourne roof top. Service can be patchy and surprisingly for a bar that makes Earl Grey Cocktails, they make ghastly tea.

What a fantastic hidden gem this is! We were recommended this place by a friend - lucky as we would never have found it otherwise! I can see why the locals like to keep this venue to themselves! Marvelous cocktails, quirky interior, superb vibe and excellent staff! I will go back and I recommend anyone to pay this place a... More

This is by far the most pretentious and tryhardy place I have ever been to. The drinks are watered down and expensive, the clientele and the wait staff are ridiculous rather than "quirky" which is how this place is designed to appear.
