“Good but pricey ”
Review of Palermo

Palermo
Ranked #715 of 4,448 Restaurants in Melbourne
Price range: US$ 60 - US$ 150

Restaurant details
Neighbourhood: Central Business District
Description: Continuing on the legacy of two of the CBD's most revered restaurants, vibrant younger sister Palermo borrows from San Telmo's boisterous old-world charm, fusing it with a nonchalant new-world chic and penchant for the flamboyant. Award-winning head chef Ollie Gould captures the artistry and exuberance of Palermo's cobbled urban buzz, toiling over its spectacle centerpiece – a tailor-made traditional Asado fire pit ablaze with whole splayed beasts. With its mouth-watering modern menu crafted for the carnivorous, Palermo fuses a contemporary twist with the age-old Argentinean tradition of sharing the finest Parrilla charcoal-grilled cuisine with friends, family and lovers.

A few of us decided to have a long lunch here the other day and were glad we did. This is not a cheap place, it’s fine dining but worth the price. We chose to drink the house Malbec, and it was scrumptious, and also a plsco sour, also good! We then had a selection of empanadas, chorizo, pork croquettes, cabagge salad, tomato salad, a melted cheese dish, potatas and the flank steak. All of it was delicious!

So if you need a classy business lunch spot or just want to spend a couple of hours grazing on delightful food get down there!

6 of us for a birthday celebration sat upstairs - it was stinking hot no air conditioning just made the whole night disappointing as we could not enjoy ourselves as the heat from the open kitchen was rising upstairs right near us and it was a hot evening as well - fans were provided for the area near us but did nothing - meat was chewy and hard - - we were forced to have banquet which we really didn’t want so food was not up to par and not enough - service was good although the girl just attended and spoke to the men and disregarded the ladies - would not come back with a group - sister restaurant up the other end of town far better we went there a month earlier that one was amazing

Came here as part of the Melbourne food and Wine event - "Playing with Fire" it was called. 3 courses, all very good. Very good! Attentive staff, great wine list! A little overpriced but overall I'll be back!!

Overpriced for the palm sized portion and uninviting, dark interior. Food was edible but nothing like fine dinning.
