“Can't wait to return!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2013

Husband and I chose to order the 'chef's feast' and we were not disappointed. Highlights were the duck, the cured lard on crackers (so tasty) and the divine chocolate pudding. Service was friendly and helpful and ambience was lively. Can't wait to return when I next visit Melbourne.

“Great Food and atmosphere - wonderful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2013

We were visiting Melbourne for a week and I found this restaurant via Trip Advisor. At the time we didn't know it was the restaurant of Adrian Richardson (from AFC shows).We thought it may be quiet being a Sunday, but were completely wrong - packed out. We shared some oysters for a starter which were freshly shucked and very good. I chose a steak and my wife a pork dish - no disappointments there! The meat was juicy and cooked exactly as ordered.

The wine list was extensive and with a good spread of less and more expensive bottles.

We were also impressed to meet the owner, who heard we were visiting from Asia. Adrian came across just as he does on his cooking shows, a straight friendly guy. Impressive he took the time to wander the place and meet his customers. The rest of his staff were very friendly and efficient.

The apple crumble for desert was wonderful, especially paired with a nice Tokay.

Go there, you will be impressed.

Beautiful meal and perfect service, thank you! The waiters were very attentive and helpful. We had a large group, and they managed it well. Our meals were delicious.

“Fantastic - exceptional food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2013

First ate here for a work function and was amazed at the quality and taste of the food and have never looked back. Have been several more times and have never been disappointed. The flavours of the dishes we have are so delicious, everything is prepared so well, have never had a disappointing meal. The steaks are juicy and tender, the pasta is packed full of flavour but the real winner for me is the sizzling garlic prawns and crème brulee. And what compliments a delicious meal? the staff - always so friendly and helpful, not over the top and certainly do not let you wait around for them to serve you. You will not be disappointed if you eat at La Luna - caters for a casual Sunday snack or for a 'you need almost need two stomachs' for a three course meal! price and quality go hand in hand.

“Can't wait to go again”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2013

We have eaten here quite a few times, with friends, as a couple, as a family, and at a function upstairs. We have just loved the food and service and wouldn't hesitate to recommend to others. I had noticed they had started a takeaway line that I have been meaning to try.
