Always stop for a meal every time we visit Melbourne! The food is good, the service was great and the family enjoyed their meal. We thoroughly enjoyed the meatballs, spaghetti(kids’ meal) and the souvlaki. Will be back on our next visit to Melbourne😀

Went to Stalactities especially for the souvlakis and was not disappointed. The food was sensational with tender meat and great sauce. We timed it well and did not have to wait for a table but go prepared for a queue to get a seat. They...More

Locals know that Chinatown is the tried and true place
to eat before hitting the nightclub scene. The place
simply buzzes, and the well-preserved buildings exude
a sense of Imperial China stemming from immigration
over a century ago. In restaurant after restaurant on
Little Bourke Street, you'll find delicious dishes
such as sizzling honeyed prawns, and value for your
money. Stately matrons oversee family kitchens serving
