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!

Staff are wonderful!
The FOOD well??? you got to try their burgers and thick cut chips with aoli sauce Fresh fresh fresh !

They even have heaters outside so you never feel the cold - I highly recommend this place for a coffe, drink after work or a meal . Queen Street casual dining at its best!!!

“Excellent service and food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2014

This is a small restaurant, with a short menu, but the service and the food was simply off the charts. If you are visiting Melbourne, do yourself a favor and visit this restaurant. You will not regret it

“Small menu but good food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2014

Close to the corner of Bourke and Queen Street, next door to the Adina Hotel. The QSR provides breakfast, lunch and dinner. Friendly environment with good after work atmosphere.

Small menu but the food is cooked and served well. Try the steak and chips ... I asked for medium-rare and it was mouth watering perfect!

Give it a try if your in the area.

“FABULOUS restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2014

We stayed at the adjoining Adina Apartment/Hotel and patronised this restaurant for the majority of the time we were there! Food is reliably fantastic! Had 2 of the best breakfasts I've ever had....AND the coffee is great as well. Good job QSR - we'll be back for sure. :)

“Good Food & Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2014

This little café adjoins the Adina Hotel which was very handy.
There are so many restaurants in Melbourne to choose from, but we were persuaded by the previous reviews on Trip Advisor to give this restaurant a try. We weren't disappointed. There is a good choice of meals on the menu, eg pizza, pasta.
There was a happy hour between 5pm & 8pm for beer & wine.
Also the night we dined they had a special on pizzas which were all priced at $12.
We had planned to have pizza no matter where we dined so this worked well for us.
They were delicious. I had prosciutto with rocket pizza & my husband had the chicken tikka. YUM! The base was thin & the toppings were fresh. Sooooo nice.
The staff were attentive & enjoyed chatting.
We only regret that we didn't come here for breakfast as well.
We stayed in the Adina hotel next door which was also very good. The café provides room service to the hotel.
I would definitely recommend!
