The street is lively and this restaurant has to compete against good restaurants in the same locality. Tonight I was not convinced it had. My wife's Moroccan chicken was okay but my lamb dish was disappointing. It came with stone cold lamb. Having asked the waiter if it should be served that way he confirmed it did as it was... More

You definitely get your moneys worth at this restaurant. The big breakfast was massive and had the traditional big breakfast components as well as some other nicely added components.

Called in for coffee as we started our walk through the city's laneways. There are lots of cafes here and we chose this one at random. The service was prompt and friendly. Coffee was good and a member of staff who had not served us stopped to ask if all was OK and continued to chat about our holiday. Felt... More

We had high hopes for this café after reading the menu, but found that what you see is not actually what you get. We had lunch at The Quarter yesterday. The service was appalling: we had to wait a very long time to have our orders taken, well after people who arrived after us were served. The water we asked... More

We had family visiting from the US and wanted to give them a taste of Melbourne. A walk through some of the graffiti alleys, a few beers with Chloe and Young & Jacksons and then a walk around to DeGraves Street for some delicious food, great coffee and terrific service. The panacotta was amazing, the sticky date a bit too... More

Wow, the food is absolutely insane with total class. Nathan was running the floor and made sure that the Waitresses were always attending to us, service that you'd find in high end restaurants! So thanks again to Nathan! The tomato prawn entrée is TO DIE FOR! And the sticky date pudding!! Wow. Do yourself a favour and go get some... 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.
