8 of us from work went for a celebratory lunch. 1 pm on a Thursday and it was empty - literally. We were the only table, although a table of 3 came in later. Ordered the house sparkling wine, it was warm. The shared entree...More

I came in here in a slightly bad mood as I had just been rejected from the nearby Rare restaurant as they were full. So walked past this place and came in with no knowledge of it. I wouldn't say it was a treat, but...More

I popped in here to check out the longest bar in the South Hemisphere and because I am currently checking out these lovely cafes in the big old historical buildings in Melbourne - this was lovely. I just had a drink here and enjoyed popping...More

Went for a drink on a Thursday night and was very disappointed by the cold and cheap-looking furnishings (Soviet-style plastic-looking) not befitting for such a beautiful building. The drinks list was limited and (not surprisingly) hardly anyone was there. Will not go again.

Good music and laid back atmosphere. Staff very friendly. It was quiet when I visited 8:30 on a Thurs. Had some arancini which was melt in the mouth delicious.

Food was awful, cold and the serving plates were colder..waited 1 hour and 10 minutes for the disappointing badly presented food. We were the only people in the cold restaurant with loud music. No atmosphere, uncomfortable seating and bad service. First and only visit.

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
