This restaurant is classy. The food is full of flavour, well presented and simple. The level of service is high and the atmosphere is relaxing. A really good restuarant for an anniversary or to treat someone special to you. The lamb gnocci with jus was superb. The closest thing you will get to nonna's traditional cooking with a modern sophisticated... More

the staff were rude, condescending and lazy. we waited 45 minutes for our starter to arrive and that only happened after I made a scene. apparently there was a problem with the computer, and the worst waitress in the world could not be bothered walking to the kitchen to place an order personally. the food was no better than my...

We had eaten here a few years ago and remember it as a good little restaurant. Wish we hadn’t. The service was OK but the food very poor. Saltimbocca was just OK, and the tortellini not good at all. Dinner for two including a glass of wine each came to $98 and that is way overpriced. There must be a... More

Mirka is my absolute favourite restaurant in melbourne. We have gone back many times and always have a fantastic experience. The food is excellent and the vibe of the place is relaxed with friendly service. They have a great music mix and you get to experience dreamy and hypnotic art by Mirka all over the walls while you dine. Perfect.

Excellent food, great ambience in a surrounding of extensive artwork. Limited choice on the menu, but this makes it easier to choose - there's something for everyone. The food tasted wonderful. Slow cooked wagyu beef cheek with pan fried gnocchi is my recommendation. The quality of the restaurant is outstanding, the wine list is full of local and international wines... More

We had read the TripAdvisor reviews when we were looking for somewhere to eat and they had recommended booking later, so we booked for 8.30pm. It is not a big restaurant and was very busy when we arrived but quite a few tables left shortly so it was a little quieter. One of the waiters was a little on the... More

This was highly recommended to is so we were excited to dine there. Started off well at the bar with fabulous martini. We sat down to dine at 8pm - and didn't get our food for two hours. No excuse - they said it was due to a function in the next room. Understaffed and hopeless. And the meal was... More

Wow what a horrible experience, booked at the famous Mirka at Tolarno on "yum table" website for an 8:30 dinner with our family tonight. Arrived early at 8pm just in case a table was available early. Family was excited. Was placed in the casual dining area and was not looked after by anyone until a young chap asked if we... More
