I always visit QSR when I come to Melbourne. They produce good hearty food every time and are happy to help with special food needs. The GF linguini with seafood they cooked for me was fabulous. Great service, relaxed setting and familiar faces.

Staying at Adina next door our first port of call after our red eye flight from Wellington is breakkie at QSR. After that we feel we can do anything. The coffee here is good and the smashed avocado is always a winner. The big breakfast ,Queen eggs(salmon benedict) and green eggs and ham (scrambled eggs with pesto) were all great.... More

This became the 'go to' place for a week in Melbourne. Had breakfast and dinner here on several occasions and found it to be just the thing both before and after a day at work. Wonderful staff who made me feel at home and great value breakfast with superb coffee. Drop in and try this place.

Attended here this week with 8 work colleagues. We all went with the Parma lunch special for $20. Very good portion size - great for lunch and the chips are awesome - salad included. Excellent value and prompt service. Will definitely return to QSR.

We have been staying at the Adina and visiting the QSR for over 8 years now and the food and service that Shane and his staff provide is outstanding. The food is always spot on and the staff make the whole dining experience very enjoyable.

Thank Mark B

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!

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.
