The staff were very friendly and quick. They had a great relationship with regulars. The food was very quick and tasted absolutely amazing. Couldn't ask for anything more.

Comfort food, good variety, nice fireplace in winter, and only downside to the outside is it's near the train crossing so it can be LOUD for a few moments every once in awhile but you tune it out just like you tune out your own children after awhile :) Really top operation and the owners look after every diner.

White Rabbit is a lovely place for lunch. The menu is varied. We had Caesar salad, smoked trout salad and falafel wraps - all very fresh and tasty. The service is prompt and cheerful. The coffee is very good (but ask expressly for hot coffee if you don't like the current Melbourne trend of serving coffee warm rather than hot!).... More

Good spot, good food! Not too far from the beach. Service was okay, took a little while to get their attention

We dined here on A monday night with a group of work ladies. We shared 4 pizzas between 5 of us. We all loved each flavour ordered. I especially liked the Prosciutto with pear and gorgonzola. The bases were so thin and crispy. We also had a really nice bottle of Italian Pinot Grigio.

Friday evenings are always busy in Brighton, so we were lucky to get a table in this popular locals venue. We opted to go for 4 starters as the menu was so interesting, and we were not disappointed, in fact almost too much food for us. Very good service, and most helpful with food choices and wine match-ups. We will... More

A recent trip to white rabbit reminded me that this place really died have a good menu. The portions are very accommodating, the wine list is good. Down side is the constant crossing bell outside which does not make outside dining fun for me. All in all 6 out of 10.

Great looking place, rustic yet classy, outdoor seating if want it, good menu and tasty food with reasonable prices. All sounds like a winner. This would be a five star place if the service was more welcoming; most of the team seemed friendly enough but a less surly waitress would complement the setting far better.

We walked from Elwood to Brighton along the beach. It was recommended that after visiting the beach huts we should have lunch in Church Street. We were very impressed by the shops and bars but chose the White Rabbit ad the place to stop. The waiting staff were attentive. We were brought menus immediately and drinks and drawing materials for... More
