I'm a big fan of Adrian and the food he makes so my Partner and I decided to go for a visit whilst staying in Melbourne. I cannot explain how awesome the food is at La Luna, we started with the Crispy Pork ears with Chilli and Coriander with a Balsamic Glaze. These were little bits of pork crackling, very... More

I heard about this restaurant and the chef Adrian Richardson when I saw his Secret Meat Business Christmas special last year and I thought his food was right up my street. When I found out the restaurant was in Melbourne I knew we had to go there on our visit so we got it booked up. The outside of the... More

If you are a meat person, put this restaurant on your list. Had a special celebration dinner here as I am fond of watching owner Adrian Richardson on television. Service was attentive and professional and atmosphere is relaxed and unpretentious. Expect to pay about $100 a head, which is not cheap. About $9 a head for sparkling water, 2 cocktails,... More

After watching Adrian Richardson on television over the past few years, it was great to be able to go to La Luna to experience his food. Everything was fantastic, from the greeting by staff, to their knowledge of the menu plus of course the food. Camille, our waitress, was wonderful and engaging and the meal was to die for. The...

Went here for my partners birthday. Everything was perfect, from the tasting plate to the service and the steaks just melted in our mouths. There was not a fault I could pick. Would defiantly return

Birthday lunch for family a winner. It's not just the food or dining experience that makes this place great. The service was top class - there when you wanted them and informative when you had a question. Standouts on this visit was the bacon croquettes with bacon mayonnaise as shared entree. Then medium rare hanger steak and pork with crackling... More

Excellent gnocchi, fluffy, tasty with a delicious sauce, steak was juicy, tender and done exactly how I like it - medium. Couldn't fit in dessert but I should have tried! The atmosphere is pleasant although we (2 women) were over run by business men in suits having lunch. Service was prompt and very pleasant. Couldn't really fault the place at... More
