We dined at the Dragon Boat late after a live show. The restaurant was spotless, the service brilliant and banquet lovely. The service was nicely spaced out and not rushed which was a change compared to some eateries. Well done to all.

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
