Description: EZARD has been serving Teage Ezard’s acclaimed ‘Australian freestyle’ cuisine for seventeen years in a sleek subterranean dining room in the heart of the Melbourne CBD. Guests are invited to indulge in a variety of ways: from a weekday express lunch or pre-theatre dinner, to an eight course tasting menu replete with complementary wines to match. Quality seasonal produce is of the utmost importance; we foster long-standing relationships with our suppliers to ensure access to the very best of Australian ingredients. The menu continually evolves to take advantage of each ingredient at the height of its flavour, colour, appearance and quality.

“Lunch only. But so slick.”
Reviewed March 29, 2014

i dont think you can truly rate a restaurant on its lunch, but my brief trip made me hungry for more.
the express business lunch is just that, no messing around and 3 courses of slick elegance.
the matching white white was superb and i finished with an 18 yr old macallan rather than dessert.
the service smart, timely and perfect really.
i will be back for their dinner. and their desserts.

“Never fails to impress”
Reviewed March 13, 2014

Walk the few steps down into this long, narrow, impeccably turned out space - all muted tones and low-key luxury - and prepare to be thoroughly indulged. Have dined here (two memorable long lunches included) maybe five times in four years and each experience was exceptional.

Delectable food, beautifully presented. Great wine list. Discreet, unhurried service. Whenever people ask me to name my favourite hometown fine dining restaurant, Ezard comes first to mind.

“Very nice!”
Reviewed March 11, 2014 via mobile

Went there for a romantic dinner with my wife. The food was fantastic and service was excellent.
We almost missed the entrance to ezard however, as it is located below another restaurant. If it wasn't for the Apple maps on my iPhone, we would have walked right past it.
If you order the 8 course degustation, expect to be there for around 3 hours.
It was a very good experience.

“Never cheap but always good”
Reviewed March 11, 2014

An iconic Melbourne restaurant with outstanding service and a creative Asian fusion type cuisine which consistently impresses. We eat here at least once a month and it never fails to feel like a treat.

Reservations generally a must.
