“Nice French restaurant with personal service”
Reviewed September 14, 2012

We hvae been back twice to this lovely family-owned French restaurant and had a wonderful time on both occasions. It is nice to see the family members cooking together in the kitchen and the wonderful hostess who treats you like her own family. The chevre salad was delicious, steaks perfect, and apricot bread-and-butter pudding amazing. Others at the table enjoyed their food too, including escargot, lamb, and fish. Highly recommended.

“Good value, Good food and BYO!”
Reviewed July 24, 2011

Have been in the past but not for a few years, Was looking for a place to take a good bottle and enjoy some good food without getting stung dollarwise. Then remebered Moretons. Booked and went. Well, the food was really good...lamb shoudler on a lental base and cote de bouef with lyon mustard seared on the outsdie, with some fries and a salad. Well, it was all tasty and cooked perfectly. The lamb shoulder just broke away fand the went well with the lentils. I felt i was in a little brasserie in Paris. The cote de bouef was just grand. Flavoursome and the mustard casing was just a wonderful experience. The ambiance was just like a homely place in paris where locals eat...doent expect fancy service or silver service...but then again thats the magic to this little place..it just feels like home . desert was speaicl as had the creme brulee" special"...and yes it was special as it had pop corn pop rocks on top that just "poped" in your mouth..a nice twist on a usual favourite desert at french orinated food outlets.Add the benefit of it bring BYO at only $7.50 per bottle it is a place you can go to regularly. I certainly will not leave it this long to go again!

“An experience you need to keep going back for.”
Reviewed July 16, 2011

Love this place, the atmosphere is like being in France, and the food can not be faulted. Love the escargot, portabello mushroom pasta, and their steak with bernaise is truly mouthwatering.

“Very poor value for money”
Reviewed June 19, 2011

I love French restaurants but there are much better choices in this area and elsewhere. The menu here provided limited options, little flair and poor value for money, not to mention invisible service. On the plus side was a nice ambience and you can BYO wines. But overall, we and the couple we went with would not recommend Moretons.

“Fantastic”
Reviewed June 4, 2009

Fantastic food, great friendly and timely service. A lovely relaxed family owned French restaurant. Would recommend over most others in Melbourne, and it's BYO if you wish.
