Meet the Chef

Growing up in a household with “a mélange of North African, Middle Eastern and Italian cuisine” Adrian Richardson’s heritage definitely helps explain his enthusiasm for quality food that’s packed with flavour. Adrian Richardson's focus is on good produce, handled with care. When Adrian is not at La Luna or Bouvier he can be seen on Good Chef Bad Chef, Secret Meat Business & Richo's bar snacks.

    Magnificent food, great service and ambience ... what more can you ask for. Still my favourite restaurant in Melbourne and easily the best steaks you will find.

    This restaurant serves up the best steaks in Melbourne, without doubt. Coupled with that, excellent service, awesome wine list + great vibe. I can't recommend La Luna strongly enough.

    The wait staff were fantastic, the food amazing, a lovely lead up to our daughter’s wedding. My husband and future son in law said the scallops were the best they’ve ever tasted

    This is where you go when you just want food done right. Served by professional wait staff, chefs 100% know what they are doing, and food is immaculate. Spend the money, your worth it and so are they.

About the restaurant

A Meat Master

At this rustic-chic corner shop front restaurant, it’s all about meat. Chef and hands-on meat man Adrian Richardson's easygoing ways and nose-to-tail food philosophy are always on show at this much loved, long standing restaurant in Rathdown Village. Highly regarded for the quality of the house-aged beef, Richardson also offers a number of other tasty meats, many of which are hand made. From crackling wrapped pork, to generous lamb shoulders and house-made cotechino sausage, it’s clear Richardson has a real meaty skill. This lofty-ceilinged space with bentwood chairs and fence-wire chandeliers is a charming neighbourhood gem that’s perfect for a meat feast. Just don’t bring your vegetarian friends along. We’re not so sure they’ll approve.

Best dish: dry-aged, on-the-bone rib-eye
