Looked up on trip adviser and had good reviews. Agree with them. Sat outside as busy inside. Waiter outside gave us great service. Food was excellent along with the coffee. Also notice that small dogs were catered for.

As a resident of Melbourne I’m embarrassed to admit that this was my first visit here. And I’m glad I finally made it. Excellent service, an interesting menu (you rarely see rabbit cooked so well) and a great selection of wines to choose from. We were lucky to get a table, and will definitely be back. Sure, there are many very good restaurants in Melbourne but The European deserves a visit. It has survived where many have failed. That tells you something.

Went here for a work breakfast and really enjoyed the food. Got the eggs Florentine with spinach and was great. Lovely service also. Mains around $20, coffee $4-$5.

Intimate and wonderfully boisterous. We enjoyed Pate de Foie Gras, Crab Stuffed Zucchini Flowers, Pepper Steak and Tart with Gelati - all wonderfully flavoursome and timed to perfection. Sparkling Mineral Water, 375ml bottle of Montus Madiran (Sth/Wst France Red), finishing with a flat white coffee completed the afternoons eating. Most enjoyable food and exceptional staff.

The European is located next to the Princes Theater on Spring Street. When we first entered, we thought we were in the wrong place, as it seemed to be a coffee bar; however, we were soon seated and offered a menu filled with food choices. A chalk board listed specials of the evening. We sampled the fresh fish of the day and also the ribeye steak. The sides were marvelous as was the dessert selection. The wine list was relatively small and included a number of good Italian wines as well as Australian choices.
