I get sick of the usual brekkie food so jumped at the Croque Monsieur. The wait was worth it. Absolutely delicious. Just the right amount of mustard, ham off the bone cheesy without being too rich. Bang on. Well done.

This restaurant is so easy to get to, walking distance from all round. Food was great and service was excellent. They do have daily lunch specials that won't break your bank. I loved the potato wedges. The manager Simon makes tourists feel welcome.

They have a good selection of options on their breakfast menu. I was very happy with the portion size, I choose the scramble eggs and they had three different options for the toast. The service was quick and staff were friendly and the place itself...More

Staying at Adina next door, so we tried QSR for pre-dinner drinks. Tonic in the G&T was flat, literally no "schhh" when the bottle was opened. By the manager on duty. Who used it anyway... Espresso Martini was served in a whisky tumbler as they...More

We loved the gluten free poached pear and rhubarb turnover cake, and the mini wagyu beef sliders. Unfortunately there was an issue with mine, however the waiter dealt with it well. I wasn't taken with the calamari. Not quite crispy enough. The potato gnocchi sauce...More

'Average' rating throughout this review really reflects a 'Good' rating in my opinion. We dined here on a 30% off deal which made the value very good. Extensive menu with many vegan and gluten free options. Wine list is small and there is plenty of...More

Food was delicious. Service was friendly and fast. Would have happily had a few glasses of wine but was only asked once for a drink order which was a little disappointing.

This restaurant seems to be popular due to being right next to a hotel in the heart of Melbourne. There was a 50% off promotion with Dimmi so I decided to check it out. Even at full price the food is decent value. The meal...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,
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

This hip urban space in Melbourne's CBD is a welcoming retreat from the cold with its effervescent fit-out, attentive service and creative cuisine. Queen Street Rescue Restaurant Bar dishes out contemporary Australian fare with unique flavour combinations. The restaurant has a rustic, weathered look about it, from the shabby chic wall panels in white, baby green and lilac hues to the long timber tables with their bucolic-style wooden chairs. Great food, wine and some old fashioned table service where the wait staff do more than just take your order but make you feel like you've been coming here for years! We also cater for those needing a Gluten Free menu!
