I can’t believe I haven’t reviewed this pub before. We always eat here every time we are in Melbourne (which is once or twice a year). Perfectly located on the corner of Bourke St and Exhibition St, it is just a hop-skip-and-a-jump from the great...More

While walking through the CBD, we passed The Elephant & Wheelbarrow, and commented on both the name, and how “neat” the building looked. While I now forget where we were going, or what we were going for, on our walk back, as the rain began,...More

We liked the decor and atmosphere, the food was good pub food and they had a musician playing. When our party of 17 were up dancing the table was cleared of drinks. Our coats and bags were still there so obviously we were still there....More

This is a nice place to go for a meal or just a drink. Great for families as has a nice atmosphere.Meals are average in price. Be warned if you get the soup you will need a drink with it as it's very spicey.

Locals know that Chinatown is the tried and true place
to eat before hitting the nightclub scene. The place
simply buzzes, and the well-preserved buildings exude
