Every time we go to the sun theatre he insists on eating here. He loves the tapas and I love the sangria. Our favourite tapas is the meatballs. Service is usually quick.

Overlooking the sun theatre and the communal grass area the Yarra Lounge is the ideal place for a drink and some tapas. We ordered the eggplant chips, chicken and beef skewers - the food was tasty and served hot. The service and friendliness of the staff was outstanding, especially Ryan behind the bar. The furniture however did not allow for... More

Super casual, with tapas style food. Great for a pre-movie drink and snack or a post movie drink or snack, get a seat outside too if it's warm enough and people watch for a while.

Came here with a friend today. Ordered the calamari, priced at $13. What arrived was a platter suitable for a 6 year old anorexic girl. My friend ordered the $17 souvlaki and was also met with disappointment. The food was also quite average, you would think for that price it would be amazing but it wasn't. If you are thinking...

Nestled right in the heart of yarraville this place is very buzzy, both inside and out. Upon arrival we waited for a long time to be seated, when finally seated, waiter showed little interest in our group. Table was not wiped down after previous diners. We were left with an empty bottle of water. We had to grab menus from... More

I've written a review before where I said that Yarra Lounge is boringly good. But something has changed (for the worse) and needs to change back. In my last review I said it would be nice if they ramped up the menu a bit. I stick by that comment. The food last night seemed to lack seasoning and was overly... More

Dropped in for an early lunch on a Saturday. Good advice from the waiter saw us order the perfect dishes to sate our appetites. Lamb kofta in a spicy tomato sauce & crusty bread, salt & pepper calamari with a coriander yoghurt & hommus with flatbread. My calamari was succulent & tender (& lots of it!), hommus freshly made &... More

There is nothing "wow" about this place. Every time we go, the drinks are cold, the food is fine and we enjoy ourselves. It's not amazing, but it's a tried and tested restaurant. It would be nice if they ramped up the menu a little bit.
