Good service, meals arrived reasonably quickly, good wine selection. Staff were friendly. Steaks were cooked as per request. The pork ribs were amazing, highly recommended. Some of the best steaks we have had, cannot go wrong for the price.

We came here for dinner following the reviews we read on Tripadvisor. It proved to be a very good choice. Easy booking last minute over the phone. The restaurants is really pretty, it is in a walking area but there is a parking just around the corner. Service was outstanding. Daniele took great care of us from the first moment... More

Probably one of the best steaks I've ever eaten. Extremely tender and cooked perfectly. Service was good - it was a bit busy. We ordered vegetables to share but they did not come which was the only downfall.

Was given a Red Balloon Voucher for my birthday. Dinner on Friday night. The service from the staff from arrival to leaving was extremely attentive and first class (congratulations to Sarah in particular). The food was promptly served ( the share platters format is great highlighting the food). The highlights for me were the calamari which was fantastic, the New... More

This is a nice restaurant beside the yarra river. The meat was pretty good, and the kangaroo steak was also made just nice, not overly cook such that it becomes too tough. Service was pretty prompt and the selection of wine is pretty comprehensive. Upstairs seating was great for a nice dinner. Overall, would recommend!

Well the name gives it away but the delivery is consistent and the wine list creative and not insanely priced. With a good mix of salads and perfectly prepared vegetables this is one of the best "grill" experiences in Melbourne. As the business dinner included two Americans the menu was spot on. Go for the aged Fillet or Wagyu as... More

Food is superbly cooked. If you like meat you will be happy here. Great selection of south african wines and the biltong is great. Only down side is that because this place is so good it is so popular so if you want to expereince it you need to book well in advance..
