I haven't had a steak and sauce like this for about twenty five years. I eat out and cook all the time and I fully recommend this place for its food and great service. We are from Tasmania and were pleasantly surprised to be served sparkling tasmanian mineral water. Don't miss a meal at Rare.

Oh yes it can. This place is great! Great meat, great veg, fantastic chips, excellent service, broad menu. Perhaps a little expensive, but the quality was so good, I can't complain. Go here. You won't be disappointed. I'll be going back. I'll see you there.

I have been hearing about Rare for a long time and decided to try it. The restaurant is lovely, we had no booking but they found us a table on what turned out to be a busy night. The service started off nicely, the wine was lovely and then the food arrived. The side orders were wrong and although my... More

Hands down the best steakhouse my family and i has been too while traveling all over the world in the past years. But all of that was overshadowed on the night of May 15 7pm by how rudely we were discriminated and treated while dining in this restaurant. We are a family of 13 including 4 children, 1 baby, and...

Food is great, bit expensive. Service good as well. We had a range of starters and of course a steak. Oddly enough for a steak House, the chef didn't get the cooking timings right and my friends well done steak (as she is pregnant) came out medium so had to go back

Great Atmosphere, Great Waiter and Lovely Wine. Had the 500 Gram T-Bone Steak however gotta say it was disappointing. Really no better than a Supermarket Steak. Not only was it cut thin (and I would be very surprised if it actually weighed 500gram) it was just dry and tasteless. Interestingly, afterwards went back to the Stamford Hotel and got talking...

Went here after going to the railway hotel in Port Melbourne and I was expecting great things. Unfortunately it was not the best and was far behind The Railway both in terms of the portion, the quality of food and the service.

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.
