Located close to the Melbourne Arts Centre at Southgate on the Yarra, The Deck provided an ideal place for a pre Theatre meal. The menu selection was ideal for our time-limited dinner. Service, food and location was excellent.

In Melbourne for a trade show, one of our favourites for lunch, I had the rockling and my wife had lamb neck, really great food and of course my bowl of fries. We'll be back that is for sure.

Great food. Really great and friendly service, loved the chai latte! Also the eggs (soft booked) were perfect and the bacon (not the American type) was superb! Highly recommend for breakfast 👌

Fine choice of smaller dishes to suit our visit. Very good vine list but if you’re meeting others, make sure they know where it is! It’s quite pricy but very good.

If you can reach Southbank easily, worth a visit. Staff friendly and efficient (rare combination !) Served quite quickly @1245hrs even though already busy. I’ll return.
