Atmosphere was great. The food selection was very good. Their cocktails are fantastic and you can watch the world go by from the Balcony.

Great position right on the banks of the Yarra in a sheltered position that catches any sunshine, lovely food & the $20 chefs special and glass of wine or beer is a bargain.

Walking past, our eyes caught the Tuesday Ribs Deal for $20 including a glass of house wine. Definitely worth a visit. The ribs were tender and served with crispy onion rings. Southbank has a plethora of great restaurants catering for every need. However, sometimes you just want to enjoy a meal that doesn't cost a small fortune. Service was prompt... More

Meet a friend for drinks at Ludlows. Nice little spot. Service was a tad slow but they had a good casual wine selection and the views and people watching were great. Easy to get to if you're in downtown Melbourne.

Visiting Melbourne with friends. Decided to call in for a night cap. We found the staff friendly and accommodating. Although we didn't stop long we were made to feel welcone. Certainly return again.

Got together with some girlfriends for a Saturday lunch. We had the $20 lunch deal with a selection of dishes. Two chose the Caprese Salad and two chose the fish and chips. The Caprese Salad had boccincinni, egg, basil and croutons with Pesto. Delicious! The other friends who chose fish and chips said the batter was lovely and crispy and... More

A good location to take in all the humanity walking by. Food was good but on the pricey side. However I must say that the main meal was big enough on its own without having to have a side dish to make a complete meal. Might be worth booking just so you can linger.
