Went to a nearby Italian Restaurant but we were unable to get a table. Found the Waiters Restaurant nearby and decided to try it. So pleased we did. Food and service were both excellent.

Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways
tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary
feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the
city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques,
throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You
never quite know what you’ll find around the next
corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and
even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air
