Their range of tequila is like none I've seen before and staff are quick to assist with your selection. A very enjoyable experience. It... More

The last dinner before I head home from a work trip. We have tried plenty of different restaurants in the 4 days we have been in Melbourne. This is by far the most organised restaurant we have been to this week. The place was full when we arrived and full when we departed and there was never a line up... More

We had a group of 5 visit for dinner. It was worth turning up early and booking a table, as it was very busy on a Saturday night. The food was amazing - great choices and speedy, friendly service.

The food here is absolutely amazing!! Wonderful place to share Tapas and try many of their excellent dishes. Also recommend to try their Cocktails. No reservations so come early or get prepared to wait for a while. But totally worth it!

Friendly staff and good food with excellent service. It is a popular place and can get crowded. No reservation, so either come early or after 8 pm to avoid waiting.

This place is worth the wait! Remember that if you are stuck in a queue which sometimes goes outside! On the odd occasion you can get lucky with a small queue but take advantage of their 'LIVE' webcam! It can make a huge difference in wait times are there is no bookings. Friday and Saturday nights are so busy so... More

Mamasita isn't your average run of the mill Mexican. I would call it refined Mexican. Big flavours in small portions. The restaurant had a small queue when we entered showing just how popular it must be with locals and tourists alike. We were welcomed by the front of house and told a table wouldn't be long and in the mean... More

Staying in Central Business District

Neighborhood Profile
Central Business District
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 of Berlin in the street art, a touch of Paris in the umbrella-shaded cafes and, reminiscent of Rome, eateries tucked away in the most unlikely of places. Perhaps you might want a break and cross the Yarra River to Southbank - walk along the promenade, bask in the sun at a waterside bar and decide whether to go to the nearby casino or book a ticket at the Melbourne theatre company.
