Well worth the visit. Excellent value for money, good food, great service. Eat at the Grill 3182 but DONT stay at the hotel. Be warned.

The service here is excellent. The food is very good and you can order eggs of your choice. The location if good with views over the bay and of teh markets on a Sunday. A good way to enjoy a tasty breakfast ot evening drink.

I have pretty much already reviewed this restaurant in my comments concerning the St Kilda Novotel, but I agree 100% with all of the preceding reviews concerning the appalling service at this dining establishment.
My wife and I dined here to celebrate our wedding anniversary and were very unimpressed with the poor standard of service and what I would call total incompetence and attitude of the restaurant and bar staff. Despite making a reservation our table was not ready for us, drinks we ordered earlier in the day at the bar took nearly 30 minutes to reach us. Meanwhile in both cases other customers who came in ofter us were served before us. The food is of a high standard but it is this low standard of service that must be addressed promptly either by the hotel management or the senior management of the Accor Hotel Group.
