Gorgeous fit out with nice ambience. The serves were a bit small for big eaters like us, however all the food was delicious and very beautifully presented. The tiramisu in particular was amazing, we'll definitely be back again!

I returned to Abacus to try their Autumn Menu. The food and service was incredible. Drink wise I thoroughly enjoyed my fresh lemonade. I will definitely visit again.

The service was very friendly which was a highlight although we thought the food quality and variety was below our lofty expectations! Would probably go again!

Unfortunately, didn't have the opportunity to taste the steak, as they didn't have any, which was a bit disappointing for a Friday night, nevertheless, the friendly staff made all they could to offer a solution. In my opinion prices are a bit high for the food they have, but the location and environment of this place is great and enjoyable

About Abacus Bar & Kitchen

Abacus Bar and Kitchen stuns on all accounts. Architects EAT turned a Westpac Bank into one of Melbourne’s must-visit institutions on Chapel Street, around the corner from Prahran Market. Putting aside its impressive surrounds, a triage of concrete, timber and marble complemented by potted plants and comfy cushions, you can choose to eat all three square meals here, if you so wish. If you’re looking for a good date spot, it fits the bill perfectly, whatever the time. Under 7.5-metre ceilings, tuck into Australian classics with a twist for brunch. Ex-Top Paddock chef Chris Connolly pairs bread and butter pudding with lemon curd, maple oats and spring berries. No ordinary avo smash here either – instead, you’ll be served pumpkin croquettes alongside avocado wedges. Dinner is a tapas affair with a few mains thrown in for good measure. Try the kangaroo carpaccio or the Werribee tomato fondue with roasted chickpeas. Abacus makes a concerted effort to use the freshest ingredients and it shows in every mouthful. Wines are divided into handy groups, such as light and crisp whites and sparkling, while cocktails are a mix of traditional espresso martinis and the more unusual poached pear rum and strawberry and cognac spritz. Or just head over for a really good brew in the afternoon, book in hand – the restaurant accommodates all moods.
