We walked here the 2 blocks from our hotel on a windy and rainy evening. The concierge had recommend it and was able to get us a table. Unfortunately, we were put into a small alcove and somewhat forgotten about. The server pressured us to order wine, which we did and did not like. We also ordered the herb bread... More

This was the third time we had come here and was looking forward to for by bday weekend. The Asian girl who served our table was incredibly rude and we were made to feel inferior to the 8.00 sitting. We got to the restaurant at 6.10 pm on a Saturday 11th July and we immediately given the specials without asking... More

We were staying at the Windsor and looked for something close - found this fantastic busy restaurant - the food was sensational - so much so that we went 2 nights in a row. Even though we did not have a booking and the restaurant was extremely busy the friendly staff found us tables and we never felt rushed -... More

We arrived at 5.45pm for dinner with a group of 5. When we walked in there were three waitresses talking amongst themselves about table arrangements and where to seat customers. It took some time to acknowledge we walked in and ready to be seated. Service was very poor, the wait staff collectively were rude and officious, seemed more interested in... More

I understand that this place is a Melbourne institution and can see why. It is rustic and warm and the wait staff friendly. The wine list was interesting and the bread divine. My duck was huge and crispy and the pasta looked great.

This restaurant is an icon and one that never disappoints. A fabulous spot for a business lunch, good menu and good service. Wine list is more than sufficient. A little pricey but worth it.

Worst customer service in fine dining area I have ever experienced. An exceptionally rude staff member, ruined my night. It is the staffs role to ensure the customer have a memorable night, not be made to feel insignificant and small. Never again.

I visited this restaurant on a wet cold Melbourne night. The entrance is down a narrow lane, called "Georges Parade" off Collins St. When I arrived I was shown to my table, the staff were friendly and efficient. The interior was a nice warm escape from the cold Melbourne weather. I chose the Bruschetta for an entrée and the pork... 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.
