Great food and atmosphere in this adorable restaurant. Salad is fresh, and the fajita is amazing. Comes out on a sizzling plate. So tasty. The nachos were delicious with their own homemade cheese. You must try this dish!

We spent 4 nights in Melbourne and this was by far the best dinner. It doesn't look like much from outside, but the inside is charming -- even romantic. The service was knowledgeable and friendly and the food was inventive and delicious. Wonderful fresh fish. I would come back to eat here!

The beet and goat cheese salad was excellent, as were the Spring Rolls. I had a Chorizo stuffed burrito special that was almost entirely filled with chorizo. It would have benefited from also using more Piccadillo to balance out the sausage..

We went there for lunch and had to wait for a table, which is usually a good sign. Our coffee was cold. We ordered burgers, which were raw, but had ordered them medium rare. The service was spotty, seems like the waitress was too busy multi-tasking and we were not her priority. But there were plenty of staff standing around... More

Nomad did a great job accommodating our group 8 for a business dinner. As half our guests were from Asia with limited English, the staff was very patient and understanding. Kudo's to our server. Everyone loved their entrees, special praise going to their Osso Buco.

Farm fresh food prepared to order. Small corner restaurant at Strawbridge and US1. Great for lunch - fish tacos, roasted beet salad, shredded duck salad. Never disappointed. Dine indoors or outside.

Was visiting family over the weekend and based on an earlier recommendation decided to try the Nomad café. Was pleasantly surprised and had an excellent meal. The location is just outside of old town Melbourne. the building itself doesn't shout out "look at me" but it looks intriguing enough to entice people to come in and try the food. The... More

One of my favorite places because it's always fresh and delicious. Have dined for lunch and dinner Great selection from soups and salads, to entrees you can not go wrong. Service is on the slow side , so allow time .

I went here with my husband for lunch on a Saturday and we were both impressed with the number of options for vegetarians and vegans on the menu. Almost anything can be made vegetarian and there were a number of vegan and gluten free options. Our waitress was wonderful and overall the service was excellent. Good food, good beer selection....
