My wife and I ate here one evening for a friends birthday. The food was very good and I'm told the beer was top shelf (as a non beer drinker ill take their word for it). Would recommend highly.

Went here with a couple of friends and children. Found a quiet corner away from the main bar. Great choice of good beer, menu options were limited, but all the food we had was good quality. Just a nice relaxed atmosphere for a few beers and light bite. Also, contrary to some reviewers, we had a generally good experience with the wait staff. Guess it depends who you get!

Had been to their other beer cafe on st kilda rd the day b4 and thought why not give this one a try as well hoping it would be as good as the Bluestone one. It was equally as good different menu regarding the food which was good. We went when the Eureka stair climb was on so fairly buzy but service still good and friendly. Food we had the cheese plate for $16 yes $16 for 3 large pieces of local and imported cheeses, fruit biscuits and bread was very good value. Also the salt and pepper squid was also a good size and nicely presented not frozen. If you manage to get to both cafes you will notice a small variation in prices here more than likely due to the higher rents and overheads paid. Atmosphere is not quiet as good as the other one but nice and bright and breezy and a short stroll from the hotel. Will return again.

A great variety of beers in a pleasant environment... maybe I'm old and don't go out enough, but $40 for a few drinks?

For a non beer drinker just adored the berry beer concoction from Belgium.
Great atmosphere and met a most interesting gentleman at the front door doing security!
