The Mail Exchange Hotel

Melbourne CBD

We have been here a few times now. Great pub to get a feed a drink before a game at Docklands. Good quality pub food

Great little Asian Fusion meal. We picked our own dishes but the set menu looks like good value. Will be back

The Hof Downtown

Great place for a pre footy feed and drink. My pregnant wife struggled to sit on a bar stool and they were very accomadating and moved us to a table

Ezard @ Levantine Hill


Mark dined on Sat, 27th Jan 2018 (8)

Overall very nice food. I felt this restaurant is better then the city Ezard. Best dish was the pork belly

TGI Fridays - Epping


Mark dined on Tue, 9th May 2017 (9)

Really good night, we went to another TGI fridays a few months ago and were really disappointed, not tonight every thing was good and their cheap cocktails during happy hours are great value

Bistro Guillaume Melbourne

2nd time here and it was again great, they do a great 3 course lunch offer for $65


Melbourne CBD

Came here for a pre theatre meal and got the 2 course with a drink. Good feed and good value. We had the sharing plate for entree and the Schnitzel and Beef Cheek for main. Only negative was the wait time between Entree and Main, over 30 mins

Paris Go

2nd time we have been here and its still very good. Classic French Bistro food. Only negative was the fillet stake with Bearnaise sauce didn't come with any sides. For a main course at $41 I think a few fries or a salad isn't unreasonable

Easy Tiger


Mark dined on Sat, 14th Jan 2017 (6)

We opted to choose our own dishes and firstly choose 3 street food dishes. 1. Spring Roll - It was nice start to dinner 2. Scallop in Beetle leaf - This was our fav dish of the night and had a great balance of flavour 3. Soft Shell Crab - The crab its self was very good, the sauce was so so. We then ordered 2 mains and a papaya salad. The papaya salad didn't really do anything for us, not enough kick and I felt it needed about 1/2 cup more of lime juice. Head down the road to Jinda if you want a good Papaya salad. Pipi's - The seafood its self was very nice but the sauce was way to salty Beef Curry - Again the meat was delicious but the curry sauce was again way to salty and had no other flavour, my wife summed it up perfectly when she said she didn't get what they were trying to do with this dish. Overall the place was ok but nothing special. They use quality produce but the flavour just wasn't there. I would recommend Gingerboy or Red Spice road over Easy Tiger

TGI Fridays - Doncaster


Mark dined on Mon, 2nd Jan 2017 (4)

This would be the 4 or 5th time we have been to TGIs and tonight we were disappointed. The first issue was we ordered tap water to start with and they served us hot water in our glass. This is the first time in my life I have been served hot water. Serving plates and cutlery was dirty, chips and veggies undercooked with some of the veggies just past being raw. Steak was ordered medium rare and it was basically well done. To top this off they slug you another 10% as its a public holiday.

Papa Goose

Excellent service. Had the degustation, the fish was the standout dish. Beef and scallops were also very good. First entrée and desert were ok
