A sunny afternoon sitting outside, though covered, within spitting distance of the water slowly sipping my beer, and chatting to the locals next to us - perfect!
Food, coffee and friendly service, in a pleasantly casual atmosphere - I decided to wait for a later train from the station next door [accessible via a subway from the bar].

A casual laid back restaurant and bar, cleverly designed and sitting in between the Yarra River and Flinders Street Station. The perfect meeting spot for a drink or meal if you are commuting by train, and also a short walk to tram stops. Dining here is alfresco, with rays of sunshine coming through as you gaze over the river with views to Southgate. Gas heaters provide warmth. Between us we enjoyed duck pie, asparagus risotto, cheese plate (cheese serving could be slightly more generous) and charcuterie board. All very good, and washed down with a couple of glasses of wine. Good wine selection from Europe, Australia and New Zealand. Seems to get busy so far larger group would suggest you reserve a table. Would be a great spot too on warm night.

We were just walking around and stumbled on Arbory Bar and Eatery it looked really cool so we decided to there. We were able to sit down straight down and the menus were already on the table you had to go up and order but you got your food and drinks delivered to your table . I only wanted a snack before catching a plane but they had a good variety on their menu and the burgers looked amazing . I would definitely come back and order lunch or dinner next time!

The Arbory is a great place to hang out by the river, serving great food and drinks while listening to retro music. The burger was spectacular.

We found this bar by accident. Serves good beer and really good bar food. Staff were friendly and quick service both at the bar and with the food service. Great view over the river and a lively vibrant place.
