Great service, fantastic wine selection, brilliant food. This is the place for impressing dinner guests or a romantic night for two. Highly recommended.

Caught our eye when walking to the waterfront to find a restaurant. Why not try here if it is closer to our apartment? Not particularly busy, but was a Sunday evening. Service and food was excellent. We both had the pork belly, which was more like ham in flavour. This place is advertised as casual dining, but it's close to fine dining I think. Prices were appropriate for the quality and style on offer. We had: (for two) olives, glass of wine, main course, and truffles, with coffee to finish, and the bill of approx. $130 was worth it.

Recently I was entertaining some Melbourne based clients who descibe themselves as true foodies, I was a bit nervous so took them for dinner at Arbitrageur as I know it's a never fail. They did not disappoint, from the minute we walked in the service was impeccable, the food delicious - highly recommend the fish stew and paired with beautiful wines that our waiter recommended. The setting and atmosphere finished it all to create a perfect night that my clients were thrilled with, they keep talking about a trip back over - I think more for dinner than to talk work!

We have eaten here at least half a dozen times always delighted with our meals and looked forward to returning as we live in a different city .This weekend was a special occasion and how disappointed we were. Tough tortellini and over cooked snapper sitting on top aof a gluey potato mash. Nothing like our previous experiences here. What has happened ? Did not want to stay any longer than the second course. The restaurant lacked the buzz it used to have. Boo Hoo. It has a completely different feeling. Won't go back.
