My colleague and I had lunch at Rare today. I ordered their Pork Short Ribs with a mashed potatoes and they were superb. They were falling off the bone tender, with a really flavorful dry rub unlike anything I've had in the US. It was a surprisingly good sized portion, and the warm homemade bread was excellent. The atmosphere was... More

Why go elsewhere for a top notch steak cooked to your taste. Good Atmosphere, tables not squashed in together, grilled tender steak with good sides. All in all a very enjoyable evening.

My husband and I were really looking forward to a great tasting steak but were severely disappointed by our meal. The next night we went to Steer and had the best steak and lamb we have ever eaten. Rare is too overpriced for what you get.

We booked the night before and went on. Tuesday night at 5.30pm. We were seeing a show at 7 and luckily the restaurant was quiet. We went for the 2 courses for $40 which was great! The salt and pepper squid was okay. Not the best I've had but still nice. My friend got the mushroom for an entree... omg... More

My wife and I split the 500 gram pork ribs for dinner. Well prepared and falling off the bone good. One note for US visitors was that, instead of the usual BBQ sauce basting, their Aussie prep was a mustard based sauce. Still very good and would definitely recommend both the restaurant and the ribs. BTW, have read other reviews... More

My daughter and I thought we would try the restaurant because of the good reviews we had read. The atmosphere was nice, the service was good but the steak we ordered ( scotch fillet ) was ordinary. We didn't order entrees as we wanted to enjoy the steak, but was sadly disappointed. It was chewy and grisly. I think we... More

We called on the off chance a table was free after being let down elsewhere and were pleased that space could be made especially in light of the special occasion.

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
Central Business District
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, throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You never quite know what you’ll find around the next corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air of Berlin in the street art, a touch of Paris in the umbrella-shaded cafes and, reminiscent of Rome, eateries tucked away in the most unlikely of places. Perhaps you might want a break and cross the Yarra River to Southbank - walk along the promenade, bask in the sun at a waterside bar and decide whether to go to the nearby casino or book a ticket at the Melbourne theatre company.
