Trendy place where the food is great and so is the service. Only had breakfast, it was expensive but really delicious

This restaurant came highly recommended at our hotel so we made a special trip there for breakfast one morning at 10 a.m. We encountered a waiting line outside the door and a milling crowd just inside the entrance. The chances of getting seated anytime soon...More

Had dinner here with my daughter - we arrived quite early (necessary on a Saturday night as they don't take reservations for small parties) and sat at the bar overlooking the food prep area. The staff were brilliant with explanations of the menu, and having...More

We love to take the Kitchen's bench. To admire the mastery of the chefs making their magic quietly and calmly. A veritable orchestra of chefs each playing to their strengths. Each shared dish was fresh, interesting and a delight to eat. The service, skilful, refined...More

Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways
tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary
feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the
city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques,

even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air
