Came down from Brisbane on a work trip before Christmas and took my colleagues out for dinner - the atmosphere at Ludlow was awesome and the staff were really attentive. The Tuesday rib beef special was a hit among our team!

We stayed near southbank and found this place for lunch. The food was okay, but it was expensive for what we got, and not particularly tasty. Some of the staff seemed a bit annoyed at us at some points. The place was okay, but we would probably look elsewhere next time.

So we booked for NYE which by the way I wouldn't do again. They hyped it up so much but it was just standard and extortionate. So the food was so ordinary nothing special, actually my main wasn't even good. I was so dissatisfied, and the dessert looked like it was in the freezer for far too long and had... More

Had dinner here on a Tuesday evening. Wonderful location and comfortable setting. Good service - except no-one actually asked me whether I enjoyed the meal.There were a few shortcomings with the food - tolerated because the location was so good! They served a cold bread roll with olive oil as an appetiser - how much tastier it would have been... More

3 out of 4 of us had the Chicken Kiev, ( which was huge ) all said it was the best Kiev they have ever had. I had the lamb which was beautiful. Side serves of carrots, beans, and chips all beautiful and good size serves. Waitress was good fun too. We will definitely go back.

Such an average place serving average food. Let's just say that they are lucky to have the prime location. Service was overall good until the mains were served. Two dishes came out with one still waiting. Waiter checked the order at the back. From his face I could tell that dish was missed out when ordering. I mean how hard... More

Very disappointed for our choice of work Christmas lunch at the restaurant. They tricked us for all the things they offered and made us put $300 deposit, but later they turned over all the offers by narrowing down menu choices and not letting us pre-order and also saying that the deposit is non-refundable if we cancel. So we had to... More

Took a small steak which was grilled to perfection. With a nice beer at the South Bank water front on a terrace. What more can one expect?
