We were referred to The Dove by the B&B staff. We made reservations on Saturday night. Great atmosphere. Good wait staff. Food was delicate, authentic and beyond our expectations. Do not miss this gem in downtown Melbourne.

After asking for suggestions on where to have a nice dinner from our hotel staff, we landed at the Dove III for a nice dinner meal. The portion sizes were large, and the meal for our party was well prepared and enjoyed by all. One in our party ordered the filet rolleta, one had the veal, one the fresh fish,... More

Very friendly staff here. It's a little on the expensive side but you do get a lot of food. Their soups are excellent. Good pasta dishes too.

Had an evening to spend in Old Downtown Melbourne. The food was excellent but the servings were so large that we should have shared the main course. Prompt service with perfect timing between courses. The waiter came to our table and placed pasta soup for us. I commented, "We did not order soup". We were then informed that the soup... More

I travel to Melbourne once or twice a year and while it is a very convenient place, there really isn't much in the way of great food. I said that to a local and she retorted that The Dove was the exception to that rule. So my sweetie and I arrived at 12:45 to have lunch. it's a nice-looking place...... More

After reading the stellar reviews, we expected a great meal. The food was just average, the service and decor even less so. The staff was friendly enough, just not the service you expect for the price of the food. The portions were immense, but did not make up for the quality of the preparation or ingredients.

Based on several recommendations we scheduled a dinner at the Dove III in Old Melbourne. With friends we all enjoyed the ambiance, décor, and especially the food. From the time we entered the front door until we left we were treated as 'special guests' by the staff and the owner. Our waiter was both knowledgeable and efficient. Our meals were... More

We met family and a friend here , it's in the historic downtown section and is a hidden treasure with a wonderful staff serving you a great meal with all the extras to make your dining a very tasteful experience . It hard to describe , other than to say you will not be disappointed.

We were a group of five who ate here because of the reviews I read on Trip Advisor. They were spot-on... We had a very friendly and thoroughly knowledgeable waiter who totally made our evening! The food was amazing and we loved how they cleanse your palette before starting the main entree and then an apertif (?sp) after your meal... More
