My husband and I booked dinner at Moretons as a romantic evening and it was truly everything we could wish for and probably more! The second we walked in, we were welcomed by Jenny who was very friendly and made you feel right at home. The restaurant was very cozy , and although the restaurant wasn't big and the place... More

Moreton's is truly a hidden gem. Nestled in between take-away shops on Rathdowne Street, Moreton's is a cosy family-run restaurant with delicious food, and lovely staff. Jenny and her husband run the restaurant while their son is the chef. Jenny welcomes all her guests at the door with a lovely smile and you quickly get to know her. I go... More

Went to family-run Moretons during a night when local football team (Carlton) had a match, and it was practically empty. Normally it seems to be quite busy. However this allowed us to have long and nice chats with "mrs Moreton" which was very pleasant. The restaurant is small and cosy, you are more or less encouraged to BYO, to visit... More

We decided on the Rib of Beef for two and were delivered a meal for one at $78! The beef had far too much fat on it, there was very little mustard and the lighting was so poor you could hardly see what we were eating. The meal was overpriced and we both felt that the waitress invaded our time... More

This restaurant is a small single fronted building in Rathdown Street. If you are not specifically looking for it you would most likely not know it was there. Inside the feel is just like we have experienced in parts of Paris – minimalist decor small and intimate. The only thing missing are the French accents. For the menu, there are... More

Moretons Brasserie is a delightful restaurant which presents a small menu of French classics. A welcoming hostess makes you feel like one of the locals. Being reasonably priced, well presented and cooked, no fuss dining with the rare option of BYO, Moretons is one of the few places you could go back to time and time again for comfort French... More

Went here recently for a celebration with friends, our table of 8 was well situated and the staff made us feel that we were the only ones there. Impeccable food perfectly cooked & served with charm. The staff had great wine knowledge and recommendations. Biggest surprise was the bill at the end of the evening, day less than I expected!!
