Fourth time here and not one disappointment. The food is great, another level in comparison to any other restaurant in Melbourne. The service fantastic and professional with some of the best Italians in Australia. The owner is a careful and caring person, always there, for anything you need. If I could I would come back tomorrow

Step back in time as you enjoy your meal in a friendly relaxed family run business.
Just arrived in Melbourne and went to trendy Carlton, not sure what to expect from this Italian restaurant. It didn't start off well, There was only a half portion of Cannelloni left for me, my partner had the last full portion. I has happy to have only the half portion with a salad. Lori the owner was distraught that there was not enough for a full portion for me.So she offered me any alternative I wanted, didn't"charge for the salad, offered us both a sweet and a liquor. I then asked if she could order a taxi for us, she went outside to get a taxi, because were difficult to obtain she even offerd the taxi driver a coffee to take us back to our hotel. Talk about going the extra mile. By the way the Cannelloni was great.

This intimate restaurant and bar offers authentic northern Italian cuisine in a typically Italian bistro setting, complete with charming, opinionated and helpful waiters. Food preparation and presentation were excellent and not fussy. Cheesecake dessert divine.

Roule Galette is a little piece of France in the city where you will find French staff, speaking the language of Voltaire who will serve you in a warm and intimate setting reminiscent of Montmartre in Paris. Music, whether Breton or French songs of the last century or more modern times will accompany your meal along with authentic Cider from the Pays d'Auge in Normandie, or Cotes du Rhone or Burgundy wines. Not to forget the inimitable Orangina.
There are so many restaurants to choose from in this area the competition must be fierce. Given they all seem to serve similar breakfast fare the only point of discrimination would be the level of customer service. At the Roule Galette we had standard eggs on toast and the waiter was very efficient and attentive. The atmosphere in the laneway is vibrant and adds to the dining experience.

Ciao Cielo - literally translated from Italian as Hello Sky - is a sparkling addition to the Melbourne restaurant landscape. Situated on lively Bay Street, in Port Melbourne, Inspired by Art Deco elements, Milano sophistication and the glamour of the 40's. Original floor to ceiling boards, beautiful lead light windows dating back to the old shop row days when hardware was the trade. A look at the portraits on the walls show a tribute to the very much loved and missed Lloyd and Mary Grand parents whom past in the Black Saturday fires Bryan's food is about strong italian flavours reflected in the abundance of amazing produce availiable locally in Victoria. Bryan is by no means a traditionalist, he believes in the right to be as creative as one desires with what you are inspired with.
This is quality stuff in a great ambience. Starters were scallops and king prawns in garlic aioli. Barramundi mains. Extras - just needed the rocket salad with parmesan, oil and balsamic. Excellent wines too. Service efficient snd with a smile. Pity we only found it on our last night in town...

Sally's Kitchen has been around for almost a decade, but I only recently discovered it - talk about hiding in plain sight.
Excellent food and wine served in a European style bistro is topped only by the hospitality that is the signature of good old-fashioned owner-operator pride in what they do.
We came for a relaxed dinner after work on a Thursday night and were spoilt with steak sandwiches and a heavenly apple and rhubarb crumble, I'll be coming back to try the breakfast menu for sure.
Thank you Sally.

Thankfully I was with my girlfriend who had been here before. She knew where to find the doorway! There’s no outside signage!
We walked into the dark and moody depths and had a great time. It was 10.30 on a Tuesday night and the place was full. Why wouldn’t it be? The wait staff were attentive and knowledgeable. The cocktail menu was very interesting. These guys and gals know their stuff.
There were still customers coming as we were leaving after 2 cocktails and a cheese plate.
You’ve got to go!!

Enjoy a meal made with fresh seasonal ingredients, complemented by the restaurant's refined ambiance. The friendly staff at our restaurant in Melbourne city center will be happy to help you pair your food with a fine Australian or international wine from our extensive wine list.
I have just returned from high tea with my mother, sister and daughter at Straits cafe (Rendezvous Melbourne). What a delight! Very impressed with the service from calling in to book, to the friendly greeting upon arrival and attentive service throughout the afternoon. The high tea itself was beautifully presented with a selection of sandwiches, scones and a variety of cakes ..... all delicious! I would highly recommend!
