Sad to hear at our most recent visit for dinner, that Tony and Peter are moving on. They have served the local community for some 16 years with outstanding food and service. Wonderful wine cellar, and fabulous food menu. For those who have not tried the Graham, suggest you do so soon, this has been an institution for lovers of... More

This restaurant is located in one of the back streets in Port Melbourne. There are number of parts to this place, a nice small/medium size wine bar which has lounges, high stools and an outdoor area. Then theres a fine dining restaurant and private dining at the front. The service we received was great and the food was very tasty.... More

We were travelling on the Spirit of Tasmania overnight (9pm sailing) so decided to find somewhere local to eat as an alternative to the less than appealing buffet on board. We have walked past The Graham on numerous occasions, and thought "we should eat here", so this was the perfect opportunity to do so. We started with drinks in the... More

We started with drinks in the wine bar with friends. The service was fantastic, although my negroni was unbalanced with an overwhelming bitterness. We were then welcomed through to the restaurant and shown to a wonderful window table. The restaurant was full and some tables were turned over while we ate. At one point, a chair was added to the...

I ate twice here and on the first occasion it would be hard to fault for food or wine list. The second time was appalling - our three main dishes arrived over a thirty minute period so the three of us all ate alone. Waiter was distrought but the kitchen was obviously at fault - a pity but I could... More

Went for a family dinner. Food and wine was really good, and nice atmosphere in the restaurant. Wine bar is also nice if you are wanting some pre drinks. Although food was really good, would say it is a bit overpriced for what you get. Still worth a visit though.

We arrived at 7.30pm on a Saturday night and were quickly greeted by Peter, one of the owners. The restaurant was full and we didn't have a reservation but accepted the offer of a drink in the bar for 30 minutes. The service was very friendly and attentive while we enjoyed a drink, and this did not diminish in any... More
