The Steakhouse was recommended by a friend and was presently surprised by the venue, the steaks are tender and cooked well, the mushroom sauce is a must, the staff were all friendly and helpful. The dining room is great with lots of old world charm

We found this down a laneway in Melbourne. There is a casual pub menu downstairs but we went upstairs to the Steakhouse. Atmosphere was more fine dining and staff were very friendly. We had 2 children (5, 7) and waitress recommended just splitting a meal between them which we did and they came out beautifully plated up. Our steaks were... More

Found this place by accident. Hidden down an alleyway, but worth the search. The steakhouse is upstairs, it has the feel of an olde worlde tavern with exposed beams, but the linen table cloths and quality cutlery give away the quality of the place. The service was impeccable, the food cooked properly (medium-rare IS medium rare!), served promptly with staff... More

This bar is a great find. On a small street just off Collins, it's easy to miss, but well worth trying to find. It has a large outdoor area, but it's the inside that is worth the visit. On a cold night there's nothing better than finding a good bar with a great selection of beers, good food and a... More

After many years I visited the Mitre Tavern in the Melbourne CBD last week . This was one of the 1st pubs I had a legal drink in way back in the 70,s and I think that the same bar stool is still there , this is not to say that the venue is dated I think City workers have... More

Went on a Friday for happy hour and it was busy! Still didn't need to wait long for a pint and they even came around with a bit of popcorn for nibbles. Nice.

This old English styled pub is a nice way to escape the hustle and bustle of the city. It is located in a laneway and you can enjoy a beer in piece surrounded by big city buildings. Eat inside or outside depending on the weather. We enjoyed a lovely cold beer and were warmly greeted by bar staff. Mountain Goat... More

Came here for a drink after playing a table of black jack at crown... Pleasantly surprised by how long we hung around. Predominantly business people but didn't feel out of place...everyone welcomed. The staff were pleasant and the beers were cold. Could even buy a cigar if one so desired

If you are a pub goer, this place is unmissable when visiting Melbourne. Everything a good old fashioned pub should be. The atmosphere is what sets it apart. The food was good and it had a good range of drinks but the after work atmosphere is what sets it apart.

The Mitre Tavern is a very old pub absolutely surrounded by the big buildings of Collins Street. You can sit outside and enjoy a meal and a beer in the quiet little lane that it lies within. It has that olde English feel about it and it is most relaxing. Once you have finished here take a stroll into Collins... 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.
