We went with friends from Sydney to Coda on a Friday night. Despite it being very busy we had booked ( which you have to do) and were seated and from then on were looked after by the very professional staff. The menu is very comprehensive and were not sure what to order so the staff made a few suggestions... More

I think Coda is my favorite dining option when I'm in Melbourne - which is a big call given there are sooo many amazing places to eat in this town. The food is ALWAYS wonderful and the atmosphere intimate without being pretentious and the service is made great by engaging staff. Hard to get a table so make your booking... More

I wish I ordered more steak tartare! The menu options here are plentiful, I will have to come back over and over again to try them all. Did I mention the stake tartare was amazing? Best I've ever had. Great wine list too!

We had been trying to get to Coda for some time but could never get in when in Melbourne. Thought we would try early on a Saturday for lunch and got a spot - and boy it was amazing. Could have eaten everything on the menu - it all looked and sounded delicious. What we did have was amazing. Staff... More

Managed to squeeze into a place at the bar on a busy Saturday evening. Fast efficient service and good food. Sharing plates - great to see the range of food that comes out of a busy kitchen - sitting where we were we had a birds eye view of all that was happening in the kitchen. Food was good and... More

Melbourne winter; we slip down a couple of flights of stairs to the black hole that is CODA. Like it’s related dining experience TONKA the staff are immediately pleasant and courteous and have reserved a really nice table for us. Off to a flying start with a Lobethal Pinot Gris the menu is most comprehensive (as is the wine list)... 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.
