It's tired and close to a large soup kitchen. If you like buffets I am sure you will enjoy the quantity available but with a drink and one hundred and ten dollars per person later - I don't understand. Deserts tasted stale. Not something I...More

I have heard these guys served the best buffet high tea in Melbourne but instead we did its buffet lunch. As the buffet lunch is pricier than the high tea, I had high expectations. However....*sigh* Date: 28th Apr 2017. The overall service was professional and...More

Contact the hotel directly would be the best bet.
Hi, I was wondering if the cold seafood (prawns, mussels, oysters, crab) is available at all sittings - ie. weekday lunches, weekend lunches and all the dinners? If not, then what is the difference for each sitting?

I would NEVER wear things and shorts anywhere except in the garden. Smart casual is the go for lunch at the Melba. Take advantage of shopping in Melbourne and buy something nice!
