Atmosphere, food, wine and service - everything was amazing! I would recommend any day! Dishes are modern tasty well prepared and a bit surprising - just the right combination.

We booked Coda for lunch, although there was probably no need as it was not crowded at 2pm. Dinners were all booked out during our time in Melbourne, but coming for lunch was great. We had a great seat in the corner of the restaurant and the staff were extremely knowledgeable. They offered to pick our meals for us, as... More

Second time to Coda in the last month. Both times with friends. Booking around 12pm and didn't leave until after 2:30pm. So plan for leisurely lunch with nothing planned afterwards. Menu had changed in between visits. Shared 3 starters inc quail lettuce cup, fried spring roll (very nice), ocean trout (Aperol - sounds weird but was fabulous) and the barramundi... More

The restaurant is hidden from the passing guest, a basement restaurant that is unobtrusive and special. The host, waiter and sommelier were all welcoming and very knowledgeable. We went with the chefs’ selection menu, so we tasted food I would not have normally ordered and it was amazing! I cannot recommend this restaurant highly enough, we went for a client... More

This place was truly amazing! My partner and I had it recommended to us by a friend and it did not disappoint. I normally would hate eating on a bar as there was no tables available (we did not book) however the bartender/waiter actually made our night! He recommended some amazing dishes that we absolutely loved, he was also great... More

We have dined at Coda several times mainly for dinner and it has become one of our favourite restaurants for special occasions. They are very accommodating and the ambience is cosy and comfortable. All the staff are friendly and helpful if you have any menu queries and the wine list is extensive. The food never disappoints. Love it and have... More

Great beer, great wine, great food and then there's the sirloin - WOWSA! When a dish is so good that one contemplates motorboating it, you know you'r on a winner!

We ate at the bar and enjoyed watching the team of chefs preparing the dishes, we also got great advice on portion sizes, combinations and wine pairings. The staff were very friendly and moved in and out of the kitchen, great teamwork. Enjoyed a really special meal, particularly the beautiful scallops, and black onyx. It was a feast for all... 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.
