South Wharf

Mike dined on Sat, 14th Sep 2019 (8)

Another great lunch with attentive service and tasty filling beef rib salad.

The Hub 3070


Mike dined on Sun, 8th Sep 2019 (9)

Polite and friendly service mixed with tasty chicken burgers. Great Sunday lunch.

Imbue Food & Wine


Mike dined on Sun, 4th Aug 2019 (9)

Imbue is a great little neighbourhood gem with friendly service and delicious food. Well worthy of your hard earned. Fried chicken and ox cheek were standouts.

Ish Restaurant


Mike dined on Sun, 28th Jul 2019 (10)

Ish ticked all the boxes for service and meals. Highly recommended.

ONDA Bar & Eatery


Mike dined on Sat, 27th Jul 2019 (8)

Onda is a gem of find in Richmond. Service is prompt and polite and the meals arrived quickly with delicious flavours. Chicken and lamb were great and churros for dessert rounded out our lunch, leaving our bellies full and content.

St LuJa

St Kilda

Mike dined on Sat, 20th Jul 2019 (7)

Courteous service and cozy atmosphere. Food didn’t quite hit the mark, starter share board was ok, great spicy wings but cold corn cobs. Mains of beef cheek was soft n tasty, dry reheated brisket was a fail and loaded chips needed way more cheese and jalapeños. Sorry St Luja we won’t return.

Mister Bianco


Mike dined on Sat, 13th Jul 2019 (9)

As soon as we entered Mr Bianco to leaving our night was excellent. Great service and fine food. Highly recommended.

Bay City Burrito St Kilda

St Kilda

Mike dined on Sat, 6th Jul 2019 (6)

Service was good on arrival, though the food was not the best. My burrito came with lots of rice n salad but few pieces of cold meat. Only came on The Fork 50% offer, sorry won’t return.

O'Connell's Centenary Hotel

South Melbourne

Mike dined on Sun, 17th Mar 2019 (8)

Great service though the mains we had were good they lacked polish. The lamb brisket was ruined with a thin layer of sinew and the veal was average. Notified staff of this and our comments were taken. Will be back to try other dishes.



Mike dined on Sat, 9th Mar 2019 (8)

Service was great with entrees hitting the spot to start. Mains were above average, the beef cheeks being the hit of the night. The side of 4 (yes 4) snake beans and mushrooms was a letdown. Room to improve.



Mike dined on Sun, 10th Feb 2019 (9)

Knowledgeable service and great meals made our lunch very enjoyable. Variety of different dishes had us wanting more, pity we didn’t like any desserts to order.

Vivace Restaurant


Mike dined on Sat, 19th Jan 2019 (10)

Vivace ticks all the boxes, excellent service, great meals and beautiful desserts. Highly recommended.

Bopha Devi


Mike dined on Wed, 16th Jan 2019 (8)

Great small eatery. Service was fine, meals were ok. The kdam was bueatifully crispy tho needs some herbs n spice to give it some oomph. Marinated beef strips were outstanding, tender and full of flavour. Mains of Bopha rice, spicy noodle and beef dishes were ok. Will return to try other dishes.

Tokar Estate Winery


Mike dined on Sat, 29th Sep 2018 (9)

Two great meals were eaten and enjoyed, as well as a delicious chocolate dessert. Service was prompt and knowledgeable. Great lunch.

Hoo haa bar


Mike dined on Wed, 25th Jul 2018 (6)

Was really looking forward to a great dinner, though it wasn’t meant to be as many items were missing off the menu, no bao buns, pork belly, chicken burger or prawn dumplings. Mac n cheese cubes were ok, needed spice and a real American cheese hit. Beef burger was cooked well but very bland. I’ll only return on another 50% Dimmi special.



Mike dined on Sun, 29th Apr 2018 (8)

Meals are large and full of flavour. Service was great all night.


Carlton North

Mike dined on Sat, 14th Apr 2018 (8)

Nice meals and good service.


Melbourne CBD

Mike dined on Sat, 3rd Mar 2018 (8)

Meals were great size, plenty to fill grumbling stomachs. Service was prompt.

Station Hotel


Mike dined on Thu, 18th Jan 2018 (9)

Great first class steaks cooked to perfection. Potatoes could be seasoned and salad needs tomato, carrot, olives and some Meredith goats cheese. Service with a smile. Will return to taste other options.

The Point Albert Park

Albert Park

Mike dined on Sat, 16th Dec 2017 (10)

Saturday lunch was spectacular. Service impeccable and the food first rate. Every course was outstanding. Well worthy of your hard earned. A must for any foodie. Thanks to all staff.

Gramercy Social

South Yarra

Mike dined on Sun, 19th Nov 2017 (10)

Fantastic gem of an eatery. Mac n cheese poppers were delish, the brisket tacos tender and chicken burger hit us with plenty of flavours. Service needs abit of work. Otherwise a must for foodies.

Bombay by Night

Caulfield South

Mike dined on Sat, 14th Oct 2017 (9)

Great service and tasty food. A little neighbourhood gem. Well worthy of your coin.


Melbourne CBD

Mike dined on Sat, 23rd Sep 2017 (9)

Very much enjoyed my first visit to Tazio. Calamari was delish and the lamb ragu pasta was amazing, could of easy polished off a second serving. Great service as well.

Vault Cafe Bar Restaurant


Mike dined on Sat, 8th Jul 2017 (9)

Second visit to Vault to enjoy their chicken burger and Parma. Both meals were hot, tasty and filled our bellies. Service was prompt and efficient. Will return to try other dishes.


Melbourne CBD

Mike dined on Sat, 13th May 2017 (7)

Massi delivers in service though it lost points for food. Calamari entree too salty, mains too were over salted. Tuna had lumps of rock salt and the mushroom sauce of the veal ravioli was way too salty. Correct this and meals would be better.

Steam Packet Hotel


Mike dined on Sun, 26th Mar 2017 (5)

Average food and service. Parma bland, salad dry and small amount of chips. Not returning.



Mike dined on Sun, 18th Dec 2016 (7)

Place was busy but we were seated and received our meals quickly. Food was better than average. Great for families.



Mike dined on Sun, 13th Nov 2016 (9)

Efficient service. Meals were very good with a lot of flavour though the sizes are small and could include more meat/seafood and less vegetables. Still recommend.

Taxi Kitchen

Melbourne CBD

Mike dined on Sun, 12th Jun 2016 (9)

Fantastic fall off the bone lamb shoulder and chilli salt fries. More miso broccoli is required for the price. Great service. Recommended.

Zio's Restaurant

Mike dined on Sat, 9th Apr 2016 (9)

Zios provides warm friendly service and outstanding well cooked meals. Chocolate soufflé was amazing as usual. Looking forward to return.

Brandon Hotel

Carlton North

Mike dined on Fri, 26th Feb 2016 (6)

Unfortunately The Brandon let us down on this occasion. Warm glasses for cold water, then flat soft drinks. Food was a mish mash of flavours that didn't work.Service OK.

Punch Lane

Melbourne CBD

Mike dined on Sat, 12th Dec 2015 (10)

From the moment we walked in to leaving, our dining experience was superb. Service was outstanding and the food was nothing short of amazing. Tuna sashimi-soft fresh, great entree. Mains were flounder, wallaby and Dobsons chips. All three meals had us wanting more. Fantastic Punch Lane, thanks.

Fantastic first time dining here. Every dish in our seafood banquet was tasty and perfectly cooked. Come here hungry and leave well fed and full.

Railway Hotel South Melbourne

South Melbourne

Mike dined on Sat, 31st Jan 2015 (7)

Pacino's Italian Family Restaurant


Mike dined on Wed, 19th Nov 2014 (5)

We wanted to have great meals, unfortunately we were disappointed. Mussels were precooked with a topping of hot sauce. Our mains were blah. Pasta too thick and seafood linguine was drowned in oil and butter.

Sezar Restaurant

We enjoyed the banquet dinner with great service and really delish meals, though serves are small. Flavours were unique. Great restaurant, will return.
