Waited 35min for basic drinks to be delivered. Waited another 20 after for entrees. And then, if we weren't already beaten into submission by then, another 20 for mains. Talk about hangry!!!

A Groupon xmas gift for 5 couples with a special arrangement with Blue Room to waive a fine print restriction for all to share the sunday afternoon lunch went horribly wrong. The restaurant was unable to locate the booking made in person earlier in the week. As we ordered, we were informed the previous agreed 5 couple Groupon arrangement would... More

This is a great last minute choice because you can usually walk in and get a table, or sit outside on street (heaters in winter). There are plenty of choices for meat, fish,veg, soups, small and big meals, and easy to take kids as they will find things to order too. I don't eat pizza but everyone always loves them.... More

I cannot emphasize the quality of the Lamb Pizza and Beet Salad. Good Wine by the glass and Hoppy Beer. The Steak and Chips not so much. Cool menu so ask questions and maybe you'll get some ideas. Waiters were older and a bit less attentive so a five mark could not be given. This place is a solid TA... More

After having been to The Blue Room for a lot of years and enjoyed many of their normally wondeful offerings, particularly the mussels with chips and a beer special on a Wednesday evening, I decided to do the same again. Upon arriving I became aware of some disturbing changes. No mussels deal. Oh well, order some fish and chips, supposedly... More

Nice welcome and and directed to a quitter part of the dining area. Nice choice of food and veery tasty when it arrived. For such a busy restaurant this was remarkably quiet for the number of people chatting and eating. The attention to topping up water and offering drinks was regular whilst unobtrusive. The staff were quick to respond when... More

As a large group we know a restaurant can be challenged to keep everyone happy - not The Blue Room. Great service all night and food to match. Well done to the staff!!

My daughter and I stumbled across this restaurant for a quick lunch. Her priority was to get her phone charged with only 4% left and needed her maps app to find her way around. My charger wasn't working and the staff were lovely at trying to make it all work for us. Just delightful. We sat inside, service was quick... More

Staying in South Melbourne

Neighbourhood Profile
South Melbourne
South Melbourne hosts the city’s oldest continuous market, founded in 1867. Rows of neatly arranged fruit, vegetables and flowers splash yellows, greens and reds along the entire perimeter, where the whole neighbourhood gathers for Saturday feasts. Inside the hall, shoppers hover over the mouth-watering displays of delicatessens and specialty food shops. Further in, a bazaar full of giftware, clothing, and kitchen utensils completes the scene. Take a break to walk the wide and shady streets and stroll along the Victorian-era heritage terrace houses. But return to the market in time for some paella, simmering in three large frypans on the footpath and served straight onto your plate.
