We came from Sydney this trip just to visit La Luna and to rekindle our experience at Melbourne Rockpool for our wedding anniversary. We had been long-time fans of Adrian etc so were looking forward to some great meat dishes from the maestro and his team.

We ordered a porterhouse steak and a pork roll. The pork was nice but the crackling was a little under exciting and my porterhouse steak though ordered medium rare as the waitress recommended was overcooked which was even noted by the waitress who commented that they are normally better than that! So that was a waste of money – might as well have been a local pub steak which would have been heaps cheaper. I think the apprentice must have been cooking that day.

The chocolate dessert luckily was a standout though the fig ice cream did not match too well. The honeycomb though was interesting.

La Luna's food is nothing fancy but it is food that is as it should be though a bit pricey for what it is, just a cafe/restaurant in Carlton.

Been there and that was enough – there are too many other places to try than too risk overcooked meat at that price.

Imaginative menu full of innovative mouth watering flavours. Food is ALL hand made on premises with great passion and care and is matched with thorough though not overwhelming drinks list. Service friendly, warm, knowledgeable and impeccable. ALWAYS a faultless experience in every way.

What an great restaurant, staff were attentive. Cocktails were $12 and a decent size drink. Entrees were alittle over priced. Had 3 tiny pork and fennel sausages for $18 although very tasty. For main my friends and I had the crackling pork roast which was Devine. Hamburger was probably one of the best we have tasted. Stuffed chicken was full of flavor. After a couple of hours we decided to have desert. The bomb Alaska was enough for two people. We will definitely be going back. Only one fault was bread should be provided on the table before food comes out.
