Nice Work Coda. You've been on my list for a visit for a while now. Finally got there and was not disappointed. The bugs and mussels were spectacular.

Having heard a lot about Coda, we thought it was time to give it a go - we're glad we did, but probably wouldn't go back. The service was delightful, and the wine pairings were spot on. However, the food was a bit hit and miss - some dishes, such as the scallops and the quail, were lovely, but the... More

My husband and I dined here the evening following our wedding. The service was amazing, they were all very attentive and considerate - even not setting down food when one of us had stepped away from the table. The food was delicious and unique, we took the option of having the waiter choose the menu and wine for us and... More

We went here with another couple and we all absolutely loved everything we ate and drank. The food was sensational - so fresh and full of flavour - the pick was definitely the pork belly - the best we have had! The waiters were very friendly and unpretentious and helped us with our selection and the sommelier was very down... More

The restaurant is set into a basement on flinders lane with high ceilings and windows at street level at one end, high bar stools in the middle and a long table at the end. Really nice space. The climb to the bathrooms is not so great. The music was good, 80s classics and up beat. The food was creative and... More

I booked this in about 6 weeks ago for my 2 year anniversary with my boyfriend as I had heard so many great things and had visited the teams other restaurant Tonka, which I loved. On arrival, we were attended to immediately and was advised by the waiter that my Mum (bless her) had offered to pay for our first... More

The food was excellent, well prepared and unique. The staff were super attentive with good suggestions especially for pairing with our food. Book ahead if you can at all or get there just as they open.

Had the most amazing dinner here. Coda was epic- had the grilled prawns, scallops and fried rice paper rolls. Followed by beef tartare, grilled barrumundi and Asian slaw. It was divine! To top things off we shared a coconut, passion fruit meringue! Only downside was trying to get attention from waiters for more drinks, dessert order and the cheque. Cannot... More

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
Central Business District
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 of Berlin in the street art, a touch of Paris in the umbrella-shaded cafes and, reminiscent of Rome, eateries tucked away in the most unlikely of places. Perhaps you might want a break and cross the Yarra River to Southbank - walk along the promenade, bask in the sun at a waterside bar and decide whether to go to the nearby casino or book a ticket at the Melbourne theatre company.
