    The food and service were first class. The sardines entree was the best and the steak main was cooked to perfection. The staff made us feel at home and really looked after us. Highly recommended.

    I absolutely love this place!!! I live in Sydney and whenever I'm in Melbourne I always try to make it to O'Connell's. A hidden gastro pub that has amazing food, exceptional service and all in all a great vibe. It never lets you down and I can't wait to revisit again on my return trip to Melbourne.... sooner rather than later!! Bravo O'Connell's

    Visited for the Spring launch, Saturday afternoon. A good idea and well put together, pity the weather didn't cooperate. Was an enjoyable afternoon.

    I had been told about the great $20 pie and drink deal on a Tuesday at O'Connell's. I didn't realise that the Beef and Guinness pie would be so good!! Definitely not your standard pub pie. Great customer service too. I will be back.

    Great service& wine list . "traditional roast chicken" pink inside and seared/grilled with some boiled potatoes and a hand full of peas. My husband asked for his steak med/well done and we overheard the chef mocking his request as we were seated in front of the kitchen. He only ate half of his meal as did I. We did not choose to complain as it was very busy . O'Connells as we have known it over our many decades of visitation has changed and not for the better.
