Description: This hip urban space in Melbourne's CBD is a welcoming retreat from the cold with its effervescent fit-out, attentive service and creative cuisine. Queen Street Rescue Restaurant Bar dishes out contemporary Australian fare with unique flavour combinations. The restaurant has a rustic, weathered look about it, from the shabby chic wall panels in white, baby green and lilac hues to the long timber tables with their bucolic-style wooden chairs. Great food, wine and some old fashioned table service where the wait staff do more than just take your order but make you feel like you've been coming here for years! We also cater for those needing a Gluten Free menu!

Its really great that they provide room service for the Medina next door

“Great Customer Service. Great Food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012

We went here for breakie twice while staying next door at the Medina Grand and were very impressed with the service!! Not very often someone can remember your coffee order, let alone when you have only been there once before!

Breakfast was delicious!! Poached eggs were cooked to perfection and the home made potato cakes are divine!

The cafe has a great atmosphere and is the perfect way to kick start your day!

“Looked after me well”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2012

The ease of feeling good as a single eating out, the range of menu and the depth of wine choices. Food was fresh and plenty without having to wait for a very long time, pricing excellent

“Great food, friendly staff.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2012

We ate here a few times while staying at the Medina Grand right next door ( and also got some room service meals from them)
Staff are friendly and remembered our names, the atmosphere is relaxing and you're not blinded by bright lighting everywhere.
Food was delicious, generous serves and fresh and tasty. While not usually a chip eater I absolutely loved their chunky cut chips. They also change the menu regularly so there's always something new to try.
Great place to visit, have a drink or two and watch the busy Melbourne street outside.
