Plus 5

South Wharf

Kate dined on Thu, 4th Jan 2018 (4)

Service was almost non-existant. Calzone was full of fat trimmings and some mushroom with too much napoli sauce on top like they poured some dolmio. The pulled pork sliders tasted like they were boiled with no flavour. The buns were better than the filling. The grilled eggplant with cheese was good but overpriced. $16 for 6 slices (wedge sized only). No water was brought to the table. They also tried to get away with not giving us the 50% off dimmi discount. There were only 8 other patrons in the restaurant, more staff than diners. We were still hungry but did not want to waste money on mediocre food. We went to eat more elsewhere after. Even with 50% off, I would not come back.

Most staff were friendly except one. The lamb in the entree grill was lovely, chicken was dry though. Butter chicken was not too heavy and tasted great.

Dock 37 Bar & Kitchen

South Wharf

Kate dined on Fri, 15th Dec 2017 (8)

Service was great, very attentive without being intrusive. Food was lovely, the portions aren't big but the quality is superb. Most mains don't come with a side but they do give you bread and butter before meals arrive. I would like to go again and try something else.


Moonee Ponds

the pad Thai was very tasty but small portion. roti tasted reheated as it was dry. peanut sauce lacked texture. have been a couple of times before and the quality has dropped.

low quality expensive food. I ordered the crumbled veal which came out very oily and the two pieces combined were smaller than the size of my palm.. And I have tiny hands. the beans that came with it were gross. my partners pizza was ok

Massi has the best service we have ever experienced. Even better than more expensive fine dining restaurants in Southbank. The food is lovely too. I would recommend this venue! Thanks for the great service.

Henry and the Fox

steak was tender, pizza was fresh. It's a shame the service was slow and inattentive.

lovely service. tastes like fusion, rather than authentic thai cuisine.

A Hereford Beefstouw - Melbourne

Melbourne CBD

Kate dined on Fri, 21st Apr 2017 (8)

great service and lovely food. steak and ribs were tender. chips were a bit soggy but the rocket salad was nice. ordered the dessert platter for two, the panna cotta was falling apart before we touched it and creme bruise was cold. it's tucked away in an alley so it was a bit hard to find.

very expensive, small portions. we ordered one entree, two mains and one dessert and it was more than $100. The taste wasn't great either. service was slow.

Hoo haa bar


Kate dined on Tue, 14th Feb 2017 (8)

lovely service, music wasn't too loud. portions were large for tapas. we ordered 5 dishes between the two of us and two cocktails. we were very satisfied

Il Nostro Posto

Melbourne CBD

Kate dined on Wed, 8th Feb 2017 (7)

The portions were good and food was tasty. The waiter in the red check shirt was very rude when I asked for cutlery for dessert. he made a expression with his fingers like he was getting annoyed and told me canolli should be eaten with fingers. I didn't want to eat with my fingers because I hadn't washed my hands after holding onto the tram rails. I noticed the table behind us asked for cutlery too but he didn't give them any attitude. The restaurant was playing talk back radio regarding sexuality and rape in churches. I found that very inappropriate for dinner! some must would be nice

Queen Street Rescue

Geppetto Trattoria

East Melbourne

Kate dined on Tue, 15th Nov 2016 (9)

great weekday lunch special for $25 which includes a main, glass of wine or soft drink and tea or coffee. lovely service too

Pomodoro Sardo Melbourne

Melbourne CBD

Kate dined on Thu, 10th Nov 2016 (5)

The service was good. the pre theatre menu seemed nice but were unable to use it with the entertainment book voucher. it wasn't written or stated anywhere, lucky we asked before we ordered. I got a pasta which was $29, it was a big bowl that was a quarter filled. the pasta was home made but the sauce was barely there and dry. very small portions. my partner got a pizza ($22.50) the base was so thin that it was soggy. would not dine here again, very expensive for what you get.

The Meat & Wine Co Southbank


Kate dined on Sun, 24th Jul 2016 (7)

amazing beef ribs and tender steak. we also loved the wedge salad, so simple but delicious. we had a bit of a wait for our meal but the waiter acknowledged and apologised. service was great and would come back again.

The Hof Downtown


Kate dined on Wed, 6th Jul 2016 (7)

when we entered the restaurant, there was no one who greet us so we walked around to find a waiter. when we found one, we let him know we had a booking for two and showed us where to sit. he brought over menus. there was no one around when we wanted to order so we walked around looking Dr staff, then a lady came to take our orders. The portions were massive, neither of us could finish our mains. after the meals and drinks were brought to us, we didn't see the waiter or waitress again. when we were ready to leave and pay our bill, still no one around so we walked around and was told to pay at the bar. more staff available would have been great. would not come back due to lack of service. if you're hungry and order a main here, you won't leave without being full!

Oneworld Knox

Wantirna South

Kate dined on Thu, 30th Jun 2016 (7)

We came here as a get together with old colleagues. There were 7 of us and they seated us towards the back of the restaurant, a bit close to the bathroom as we could smell the bathroom every time someone came in and out as the door opened. we asked the waitress about meals we didn't quite understand, like the chicken chin chin.Her answer was just "let me have a look" then she just repeats what the menu said. not very helpful, especially when my vegetarian colleague asked what options there are, the waitress replied and said it should say what's vegetarian next to the meals. we were able to enjoy ourselves without getting rushed out which was great. the meals were ok, nothing to write home about. It was pricey for the area, a pasta was $27. my paella was nice but my friend's spaghetti was so dry that she had to ask for olive oil to mix in it. 6 of us ordered mains and a drink each, and one of us an entree and drink. the total bill came to $242. out meals came out separately so some of out meals got cold waiting. It would be nice if it was all served at once. I may dine here again for the convenience.

Rare Midtown (Goldie Pl)

I went there today with my friend who ordered entree baked mushrooms which she said was nice. I had garlic prawns with ciabatta which was very oily, I would say 3/4 of the prawn dish was oil but the amount of prawns was generous for an entree. My friends porterhouse was okay but mine was pretty much all fat - it was so hard I couldn't even chew it. I had it medium rare and it was cooked to perfection but the quality of the steak itself is questionable. I also had the mushroom sauce with my steak which was mediocre, a bit cluggy. I came as there was a 50% off discount, I wouldn't come back as the quality of food and service was mediocre.
