“Nice restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2014

Had a great time eating at Trunk. Atmosphere is good, easy to have a conversation but could be a little dark. Waiters were very helpful and attentive and food was delicious, make sure you leave room for desert!

“Great burgers and shakes”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2014

The beef burger is sensational and very very tasty! The fries were cooked to perfection and combined with a delicious violet crumble flavoured milkshake, it couldn't get much better!

“Very Hip!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2014

WE stayed in Melbourne at Fraser's Suites last weekend, and went to Trunk around the corner. They were playing great DJ set when we were seated, love having this as my partner doesn't like the music scene and it even made him chill! We were promptly served, the menu was exciting and the industrial atmosphere funky. The antipasto board was a surprise with some of the usual suspects but some nice little additions, yummy bread too. The only problem was that the pizza (gorgonzola, pear and speck) was far to salty - the speck wasn't what I would call Speck - coming from a Dutch background, I think they compromised, sadly. Otherwise Trunk ticked all the boxes!

“Great restaurant very good service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2014

The food is great and the service even better. We went on a Friday night and told the restaurant that we had tickets for a show and we needed to leave at a particular time. They were really great and ensured we left in time to see our show. They even served dessert in 5 minutes to ensure we didn't miss our show. We ate in the are restaurant area - which was much nicer and quieter than the diner. But this is the place to go for Friday night drinks - it was really buzzing if you don't mind the noise you'll probably love the atmosphere. I'm getting old and prefer the quieter restaurant.
