Station Hotel

Reviewed By ShoelessJoe73 - Melbourne, Australia

Rude dismissive staff. Seemed to be the hardest thing in the world for the redhead chick behind the bar to organise a tab! Easiest thing in the world to put on a smile and welcome people...won’t be back...

Esca Grill

Reviewed By Bucks-05 - Australia

A colleague put me onto this restaurant and it was great.

The entree was to die for. Cannot remember the exact name, but it was a shaved meat/charcuterie dish with buffalo cheese and Parmesan cheese. That was absolutely enough for me and 2 other of my table as it was magnificent!
But then onto the mains....
The Dry aged beef was incredible. My cut was rib eye on the bone 'rare' and it was incredible. Cooked to perfection.
I didn't have dessert, but of the 5 of us, 4 did. Three had Tiramisu and wait for it - they bring out the biggest bowl of all time and give the biggest piece possible.
All said it was amazing.
Total cost with entrees, main meal and 4 (of 5) desserts was incredibly reasonable for the quality of food and 3 bottles of wine.
Not for kids at all and was very surprised they did not cater at all for vegetarians.
Definitely will go again.

Cafe Terroni

Reviewed By JonNewport - Melbourne, Australia

This suburban gem consistently produces great Italian food. Joe the host always makes you welcome and makes you feel special in his restaurant. We had the pappardelle and the orecchiette which were delicious with a bottle of Margaret River Chardonnay. This restaurant has a great atmosphere and very good service and is reasonably priced. It is worth the visit and a great place to dine after a movie at the Sun Theatre.

Pho Hung Vuong Saigon

Reviewed By William T

Walk into this restaurant looking for pho for breakfast.
Ordered two bowls - a bowl with chicken meat and a bowl with sliced beef. Also got one glass of iced Vietnamese coffee.
Was surprised when we saw the bowl - that is one big bowl of a Pho with lot of meat toppings!
Tried the noodle and soup - very superb.
Vietnamese coffee is bitter to my liking.
Enjoyed the breakfast.
Will return for meals.

The Plough Hotel

Reviewed By tommomelbourne - Melbourne, Australia

My wife caught up with a group of work friends for dinner at this venue and I was invited along.
Whilst the place doesn't look much from the outside it was obvious that it was fully renovated inside and had a very modern contemporary feel.
It was quite popular for a week night and buzzing with diners.
We started by sharing a Grilled Saganaki which was excellent.
For mains I had Mexican Pizza which I asked the chef to spice it up as much as he could and my wife had the Smoked Salmon Salad. My pizza was excellent but the Smoked Salmon Salad was sensational. Didn't realise that a salad could taste so good.
For desert we shared rice pudding and mango. This was quite average and I much prefer the Asian sticky rice and mango. Others on our table raved about the Steamed pale ale pudding.
Service by our female attendant was excellent aand she handled our large table very well and was very friendly.
If it wasn't for the desert the restaurant would have scored a 5 out of 5.

While the atmosphere could use a little polish, the food out-shined first impressions. Eating outside in the back was suggested, but we chose to dine inside in the front area. The staff couldn't have been more sincere and kind on every level of our experience. I was there with my wife and two adult sons for dinner, somewhat late in the evening, around 9:30 pm and never felt rushed. We ordered ample Naan to accompany the 6-8 entrees brought to for dinner. Be adventurous and don't hold back. The kitchen and chefs are professional and up to the task. We will seek this restaurant out when next in Australia.

Love the place. Staff were incredibly friendly, and the coffee nothing short of superb. Out the back is a courtyard which is magnificent.
