While visiting Melbourne, we popped into Trunk for breakfast before a busy day exploring the city. We were quickly seated and had another waiter pop over to take drink orders which despite the number of people waiting on takeaways, were out promptly. The menu has a range of options to suit everyone's tastes and I wish we'd had time to come back and try more! Food arrived quickly and the servings were more than I expected considering how well priced they were. Will have to make sure I stop back in next time I'm in Melbourne to try more of the menu and some of the tasty looking counter food!

Went during the Jazz festival and had a Southern American themed meal. The food was ok... but nothing particularly amazing. Quite expensive for what it was. The short ribs were a bit dry.

Trunk was handy to where we were staying. Have never dined there before, but for convenience of distance did tonight. Service was attentive. Place was busy, but Sam - our very helpful and friendly host looked after us well. When it was obvious that there was going to be a delay in my main coming - my husband was at least half-way through his main and mine had not arrived - Sam decided to get a little snack for me. Both of the mains - the grilled fish of the day and the risotto of the day - did not disappoint. We also managed to fit in some dessert afterwards. We congratulate Sam for his attentiveness, not just to our needs but he seemed to be "The Man" when it came to everything else that needed attention - whether replenishing empty gas bottles for the outside heaters to running between the different kitchens to check on progress of the different dishes. Well worth a visit.

We parked in Exhibition street to go to the Rocky Horror show, we got there early so decided to have something to eat, we nearly walked past the Trunk Restaurant but it had a menu at the front and I said to my daughter that looks good lets try it. The food was magnificent, the staff were so friendly and nice, the dessert we had, (creme Brulee ) was to die for, it really started the night off with a good note. Can't wait to go back with some friends.
