The Reel is one of our favorite restaurants

This small intimate restaurant is situated right next to the famous Cameo Cinema in Belgrave. The owner is Persian and has a wonderful friendly personality - he always recogonises us and makes us feel very welcome. Quite often he will come over and chat with us or give us a special treat.

Hadn't been here in over a yr, since my last poor experience. Visited for lunch, it was pretty quiet. Due to a mixup the food took forever to come. Our waiter was very apologetic and most pleasant so we were not too fussed. The food was fine, but once we finished nobody came near us! Our waiter seemed to have... More

The coffee is generally disappointing but the food is good and trust worthy. I'm in love with the imported hot chocolates and also the feeling that you could come here more often.

Have been to The Reel both before and after the movies at The Cameo. Well worth it for a coffee & Cake after the movie, but watch out if your movie finishes around when they close...not overly interested in serving you as they "are closing". Good menu options if having a meal before the movies or visiting the area. Can... More

I am a local and have on many occasions visited the Reel when attending the cinema and found the food inconsistent. On this occasion I visited at 4.30pm while waiting for the movie to commence. I was greeted by one of the many delightful staff and whilst discussing that I was only after a coffee and being placed at a... More

Just the place for a light dinner before a visit to the Cameo Cinema however don't right this off as just a cafe! It has a great menu and can suit a casual dinner with friends. Well worth a visit !

On Anzac day, I recently went in for a coffee with a group of 7 friends after a movie and 3 of us ordered a hot chocolate and the rest various other drinks. The hot chocolates came out first in paper cups. Only after we gave him some questioning stares were we told by the male waiter (I think owner... More

Great food and service for dinner menu with a variety of hearty yet modern cuisine. The chicken breast on top of mini gnocchi and feta / pesto stuffing is yummo!

Brilliant friendly little restaurant in the hills! Great service and excellent coffee. If it's a pleasant quiet meal before or after a movie or just a lunch in the hills, this is the place to visit, 5 stars for service!
