I had dinner early in the week at this restaurant, which was located next to the hotel in which I was staying. It was very quiet, with just two other tables being occupied. The restaurant is spacious, decor and background music easy on the eye...More

My family own an apartment not far from this restaurant so it is very convenient to eat here. The staff are friendly and the food is delicious. It is great to eat here before going to the footy or catching a show.

This place was disappointing. Service was good, ambience was poor, menu limited, and the dish I had was tasteless. Risotto is not that hard to make, but it is hard to get right flavour wise. They failed. Not recommended on the basis of this visit.

We ate here both evenings we were in Melbourne, and really do not understand why they are not packed out each night. Food and service are great and reasonably priced. Thanks very much.

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
