Fantastic food and excellent venue. The staff were too good and warm with excellent explanation of items served and ingredients used. The explanation for each course served was as appetising as the food. A little more quantity would just be more enjoyable.

I went with 3 friends and we all had the degustation menu. It was fantastic, with the kingfish and duck dishes being the standouts. Certainly not cheap, but is worth it for a special occasion. A good wine list too.

Fantastic food, great venue. Staff were fantastic and so very helpful. A very special night. We had the pre-theatre menu and were out within plenty of time for our show.

Ezard is understated fine dining with a casual feel, great menu selection, a wine list with just the right variety and excellent service. When you're done chasing all the 'new spots in town' it's always good to come back to an old friend.

Really, I don't mind elegant young men in black swanning around as waiters and I actually prefer portions that might fit in a large cufflink box and a mandatory menu on the weekends that starts at $106 for three courses. But if you're going to do that, the food better be spectacular, and it wasn't. There were three of us,... More

Upon arrival we were greated by a gentleman that took my coat and asked us if we could please wait shortly whilst they re set our table. Approximately 5 min later we... More

Our service was, a generous wine list and bar staff that know how to blend a fine old fashioned. Each of our courses arrived looking too good to eat and delivered unique and interesting flavours....

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.
