“What a stunning view of Melbourne!”
Reviewed February 28, 2013

It has been many years since my husband and I last visited this restaurant. While the decor seems to have altered its ambience (I recall a more formal, 1980s style, but cosy atmosphere) and without linen tablecloths it seemed rather casual with its bare wood tables (with linen napkins) - but that view of Melbourne is as stunning as ever. A view that you can even see from the floor to ceiling window in the toilets!
We recently lunched at No35 - as part of the Food and Wine festival - and our table of 8 was very impressed. The pumpkin risotto was the best we have ever tasted and the creme brûlée was second to none! Service - from an engaging, friendly wait staff - was also very efficient.
We will return; as it is certainly cheaper than Shannon Bennett's Vue de Monde degustation restaurant that now inhabits the other former 'city lookout' of the Rialto. Prices are comparable to other restaurants of the same calibre, yet it is not pretentious, even if the waiters do greet you in French! Oui, magnifique!

“Great food, amazing view”
Reviewed February 26, 2013

We dined at No 35 and were very impressed by the food. The view is amazing and is probably what attracts most visitors, however the food is very impressive. We will definitely dine here again and it would be a great place to take visitors to Melbourne.

“One of the best in Melbourne”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

This is the second time in a couple of months we have eaten there with guests. Can't fault the menu or service staff but both times meals were very slow to be served even though it was not fully booked. Good menu selection and meal portions were OK. Desserts were great and the views are fantastic. We are Accor Advantage Plus members so get 50% off our food bill so it makes it very economical and we certainly go back again.
