La Camera Southgate

Southbank

Dianne dined on Sun, 30th Dec 2018 (10)

Return here often as it a beautiful spot, with views over the river and city from the veranda. Food is always good and the staff attentive.

Best pork belly in Melbourne; just melts in your mouth!

La Camera Southgate

Southbank

We go here often as it is a lovely place to dine. Sitting on the balcony on a warm Spring day, enjoying good food and wine....bliss!

La Camera Southgate

Southbank

Dianne dined on Mon, 10th Sep 2018 (10)

Service wasn't up to the usual high standard, however when I queried a missing order the response was immediate and a complimentary drink was offered. This is why I live this place, they are totally customer focused!

Tutto Bene

Melbourne CBD

Dianne dined on Fri, 24th Aug 2018 (10)

What a beautiful spot to enjoy lunch on a sunny Melbourne afternoon. We sat outside and had a terrific view of the goings-on along the river. Having just returned from Europe, where we had many meals in a variety of restaurants, Tutto Bene, equalled, if not surpassed a lot of them. Great food and attentive service added to the experience.

Time Out Fed Square

Melbourne CBD

Dianne dined on Sat, 2nd Jun 2018 (8)

A cold night, and as there were patrons outside, the door kept opening and closing which meant we had to leave our coats on. Not the most comfortable of meals!

La Camera Southgate

Southbank

Dianne dined on Thu, 24th May 2018 (10)

What can I say? I don't know how many times I've been to La Camera, but it is always terrific. Love the staff, the beautiful view of Melbourne, the good food......everything!!!

P.J. O'Brien's Irish Pub

Southbank

Dianne dined on Sun, 20th May 2018 (9)

Love the staff here. Picking the accents is interesting as are all the conversations with the staff about home, travels, future etc.

La Camera Southgate

Our 'go-to' place at Southbank. Going twice this week!

Script Bar & Bistro

Southbank

Dianne dined on Wed, 11th Apr 2018 (10)

Great place for a pre- Recital Centre performance. So convenient just to stroll next door. Food and service both excellent, though it is a bit pricey.

La Camera Southgate

Southbank

Dianne dined on Mon, 9th Apr 2018 (10)

Have been here many times and have always found the staff to be fantastic!

Time Out Fed Square

Melbourne CBD

Dianne dined on Tue, 13th Mar 2018 (9)

Waiter got our order wrong, however when this was pointed out to another staff member we were given the correct order and the wrong order as well, without charge! A nice gesture which we appreciated. We tried to return after our show for a cocktail but unfortunately they were packing up. It was only 9.45pm, and it did say 'open till late' on the door, so we had to go elsewhere which was disappointing.

Red Spice QV

Melbourne CBD

Dianne dined on Thu, 8th Mar 2018 (9)

Our waitress, Kerrie, was fantastic. She was unobtrusive and very efficient. The food is excellent with the pork belly (the signature dish)being delicious. We have been here many times and enjoyed the atmosphere, however last night there was a function on and the noise was such, especially during the presentations, that it detracted from our enjoyment of the night.

La Camera Southgate

Southbank

Script Bar & Bistro

Southbank

Great restaurant if you are attending any of the Arts Centre theatres. Attentive staff, nice atmosphere and prompt service.

La Camera Southgate

Southbank

Dianne dined on Fri, 29th Dec 2017 (10)

La Camera is consistently excellent. The staff are very attentive and at hand with menus, water, menu advice etc. We had a pre-show meal and our waiter was aware of this and paced our meal accordingly. The tables are well spaced and so, although the restaurant was full, we never felt crowded in. This is my 'go-to' Southbank restaurant.

Red Spice QV

Melbourne CBD

Reputation for the best pork belly in town is well earnt! Alcohol prices a bit pricey, especially by the bottle.

Script Bar & Bistro

Dianne dined on Mon, 7th Aug 2017 (9)

Terrific place to eat if you are attending the Recital Centre. We were in at 5.15 so easily found on-street parking. Restaurant is pricey but food is good, especially the desserts. It was, however, cold. We didn't take our coats off!

The Mill House

Melbourne CBD

Dianne dined on Tue, 28th Mar 2017 (6)

Great atmosphere, lots of young patrons and friendly staff. Food was so-so but ok for a snack. Will return for a drink when I'm in the city, as it's in a central position in the city.

Script Bar & Bistro

Southbank

Dianne dined on Fri, 16th Dec 2016 (9)

A very convenient restaurant for those attending either the MTC or the Recital Centre. Service was excellent, from seating to the Bill.

Kri Kri

Melbourne CBD

Dianne dined on Thu, 24th Nov 2016 (10)

Kri Kri is well positioned for pre-theatre dinner. We had plenty of time but still felt that we waited too long for our food to arrive. It wasn't particularly busy but we did have to ask when our dessert was coming. Still an enjoyable experience!
