We had the best meal of our three nights in Melbourne. The lamb was done to perfection and the desserts - yum! Excellent service as well. Pleasant , unobtrusive background music, which is a rarity now days. I highly recommend.

My partner and I had a quick lunch at Noir today. It was delicious. I had the gnocchi with a side of green vegetables and my partner had the duck. It was honest perfectly executed food. We will be back with friends for dinner.
