Marmara Restaurant


Carmel dined on Wed, 26th Sep 2018 (10)

Celebrating a family birthday was our occasion. We had been recommended this testraurant by one of our group and everything about the evening was fabulous. Classic banquet is a must.


Melbourne CBD

Service was great food tasty and wine delicious. Only issue was the restaurant (which was not full by any means) the staff insisted in seating you close to other groups. 2nd time here and will be back.

The Black Toro

Glen Waverley

Carmel dined on Mon, 3rd Sep 2018 (6)

We have been here before and had a great experience with great food and service. I decided to have a special dinner for my adult sons birthday with 6 people. As soon as we got there we were told about the cakeage per person. The waitress was embarrraed to tell us of the $4 per person charge and said people always got angry over that. It would have been waived if we spent $15 per head on desert which no one wanted as we had a small celebratory cake. We were also told we might need to move or leave due to second sitting policy. We'd had barely arrived and just ordering. Food still great but policies suck. Won't be back.


Melbourne CBD

Have been here before and is a favourite melbourne restaurant of my guests. Our customer assistant was fabulous as was the food. Sadly there were a few issues with the Maitre d on the night. Although the restaurant was half empty at the time of our arrival we were sat in extreme proximity to other diners. We asked nicely to be moved which she did reluctantly. We did not see a smile from her for the rest of the evening. A sour note on an otherwise enjoyable evening.

Glass Dining & Lounge Bar

Main Beach

Carmel dined on Fri, 5th Feb 2016 (8)

The evening stated wonderfully with attentive staff and great food choices. As more people started to arrive the attention dropped off significantly with our table not being cleared away and what was worse a pre ordered birthday desert not even arriving. Not all that really.

Polperro Restaurant

Red Hill

Carmel dined on Sat, 16th Jan 2016 (10)

The night was fabulous from start to finish We were asked if we wanted to sit outside admiring the views whilst they bought our drinks order then we were given the menu to select dinner and only came inside when dinner was served. Magnificent experience

St Kilda

Carmel dined on Sat, 18th Jul 2015 (6)

We have been here before for a pre theatre and it was great so we returned only to have a disappointing experience. We weren't the only table asking where their meals were. The food was great when we finally got it with no apology for it taking so long. We then had to rush the meal as it was so late and we were late for the show. With so many great restaurants in this precinct we will go elsewhere next time.
