hamburgers were a bit gritty but service was good

Washokudo Evis Japanese Eatery

Prahran

Lezzet

Elwood

Karen dined on Sat, 23rd Feb 2019 (9)

Always excellent food at Lezzet especially the salads. But will not go again on a Saturday as very busy and noisy. Will definitely go back other days.

Miyako Japanese Cuisine & Teppanyaki

Southbank

Karen dined on Thu, 21st Feb 2019 (8)

The pre-theatre bento boxes are great value but the staff brought us menus when we had already ordered, brought us wine glasses and a beer when we weren't drinking that night. Obviously they mistook our table for the one behind. Also quite sure one or two of their orders ended up on our bill as it was more than the bento boxes should have cost as we failed to check the bill before paying and leaving.

L'Hotel Gitan

Prahran

Karen dined on Mon, 11th Feb 2019 (7)

Very busy for a Monday night so obviously very popular but the steak, ordered medium, was overcooked and the service was very slow so extremely disappointed!

Saint Urban

Richmond

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

The Feed Me Menu is excellent value with 50% off food bill. Delicious food and wine to share with good friends. Recommended!

Massi

Melbourne CBD

Karen dined on Sat, 9th Feb 2019 (9)

Excellent food and service. Always enjoy the feed me menu, great value and unbelievable value with 50% off food bill! Love the squid ink spaghettini when dining a la carte.

Vivace Restaurant

Brighton

Karen dined on Fri, 8th Feb 2019 (9)

Fantastic food and service every time. Have recommended it to many friends.

ONDA Bar & Eatery

Richmond

Karen dined on Wed, 6th Feb 2019 (10)

The food was delicious and full of flavour. Enjoyed every dish we had. The chocolate cigars were presented with an element of surprise, a must order dish!

Lezzet

Elwood

Karen dined on Sun, 3rd Feb 2019 (10)

Really enjoyed all the flavoursome main courses and the salads we ate but we all wanted the 1 metre Lavash Pastry which unfortunately is no longer on the menu. The round version we had instead was good but the base needs to be thinner and crispier like the 1M Lamb Lavash. Would a 0.5M version fit better in the oven?

Las Tapas

St Kilda

Karen dined on Sat, 2nd Feb 2019 (8)

Very small space but kitchen copes well. Tasty food and lots of choice

L'Burger

Hawthorn

Karen dined on Fri, 1st Feb 2019 (8)

Great value because of the 50% off food bill, otherwise pretty expensive burger joint like most other burger joints.

Araliya

St Kilda

Karen dined on Thu, 31st Jan 2019 (9)

Great value with 50% off food bill. String hoppers and curries are definitely the go to dishes.

good food, good service, nice atmosphere for get together with friends

Tu Restaurant and Bar

South Yarra

Very limited menu. Have to have set menu if want main course. But one of only two main courses (fish) was no longer available at 8pm!

Vivace Restaurant

Hawthorn

Karen dined on Wed, 23rd Jan 2019 (8)

Really enjoyed the Luxemburger!

Tulum Restaurant

Balaclava

Karen dined on Tue, 22nd Jan 2019 (8)

Really enjoyed the 7 course Taste of Tulum but it was just tooo much food especially with the Manti! Should allow diners to choose 5 or 7 course set menu with 50% off food bill offer.

Kumo Izakaya

Brunswick East

Karen dined on Sun, 20th Jan 2019 (8)

A main course lamb was rather strange in flavour but starters, sashimi and other main courses were good. Parking a nightmare for a Sunday evening!

St Kilda

Caffe E Cucina

good food but service a bit pushy and remarks made seem just a touch disrespectful but maybe we just don't understand italian men.

Second time for dinner recently. Seated downstairs this time. Ambience and decor so much better downstairs than upstairs. Also no tablecloths on tables upstairs whilst downstairs tables have them. Food wise just as good both times.
