“Absolute pleasure”
Reviewed April 17, 2014

Started in a booth in the small dining area for a drink and catch up with a friend. Gradually the buzz in the bar arena built but, while able to snatch glimpses and hear the happy sounds, we were quiet and comfortable in our chat mode. Fine wine with a couple of dishes just to sample the menu and drink responsibly mad us very excited about the dinner booing we'd made for 6 of us later on. We moved table gracefully, such accommodating, gracious staff. Wow, "The Feed Me" option was how we went and a great and amazing value experience it was. Dish after dish of delightful, tasty, in testing, satisfying textures and flavours, all complementing each other beautifully. Congratulations Gus, on a great re-fit: unpretentious groovy, comfortable with a place for everyone. Congratulations also on choosing Daniel McLean as chef. Congrats Daniel and your team on a memorable food experience that we all want to return to repeat often and tell everyone about in the meantime. Well done and thank you. You remind us what this industry is all bat. Hospitality with integrity.

“Amazing Atmosphere & Staff”
Reviewed April 13, 2014

I have been working in the building next door for years and seen several attempts to make this location work. I happen to drop in after work for the first time and could not believe what they have done with the place. Not only was it a slick, well staffed design, but the place was buzzing. The word is definitely out!

I also left a valuable item there and the staff have arranged to mail it to me the very next working day. Thanks guys....Many thumbs up!

“Hidden gem!”
Reviewed April 6, 2014

Went here for our son's 30th birthday and could not have been happier. We were in the upstairs area with 60 other guests and it was perfect. There was plenty of room and it also features comfortable bench seating so you don't have to stand all night. A great space in an ideal location, it ticked all the boxes-excellent service, friendly staff, delicious food and well priced drinks. We plan to visit Melbourne again in the next couple of weeks and will be introducing our friends to The Tippler for dinner and drinks. Recently opened, this will become a popular spot for anyone heading to The G. Thanks Gus and team for a fabulous night.

“Awesome Food, great service”
Reviewed March 31, 2014

This small restaurant at the end of wellington parade hosted my wives birthday party for 10 of us. The food is mainly sharing plates and we all got to sample much of the menu. Food was fantastic and the service was also excellent. Craft beers on tap just add to the joy of the meal! Will definitely be going back there - seemed like a great spot to of before a game at the MCG!

“Fantastic! A must visit!”
Reviewed March 14, 2014

We came across this place by accident and it was so good we had to go back twice! It's a fantastic place with fabulous food and wine. Service is amazing and really friendly. The place is relaxed and very easy going.

The food is divine! We tried most things on the menu (it's share style). I'm not fond of broccoli, but the way they do it is unreal! The gnocchi is also well worth a try.

Definitely somewhere we'll head back to!
