    My main course was incorrect, but was a dearer cut than I ordered so no complaint. Corkage at $35 per bottle is excessive. Reasonable for the first bottle but not for each!

    La Luna enjoys a great reputation for fabulous meat dishes; steak, duck and pork. The mains did not disappoint. The real surprise were the delicious desserts. What a hit! We will be back,

    Richo's aged meats still a standout, and the prawn starter a taste sensation The staff are knowledgable and attentive. Whether it's two or thirty of you, a great night out

    I haven’t been to la Luna since before covid. It really struck me this time how comfortable it is to be in the hands of professionals. Seamless. And the food as it has always been, was great.

    Outstanding food, great service. Just uncomfortable chairs, but worth if for a few hours. Best desserts in Melbourne and the steak was magnificent.

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
