    PJ Obriens is a great venue for pre-theatre events. We enjoyed the daily special fish and chips and complementary glass of wine. Food was served promptly and was hot and tasty

    Very pleasant surprise! Food was outstanding and great value for money. Staff were welcoming and thoughtful. Cosy environment and Gaelic accent of staff topped the experience for me. Will definitely go there again!

    One of our favourites for a pre-theatre dinner in Melbourne. Calamari was a great starter and the kangaroo cooked rare was great. Meals are big!!

    Food yummy as last time.. had Irish sausages which were very yummy (as well as the creamy mash). Partner had the curry and said it was yummy too. I will say though that prices are little higher for a simple 'pub-like' meal - maybe because they are situated on Southbank. However at least it was very yummy.

    We each had the Beef & Guinness pie which was a lovely meal - served with good veggies. The Irish waitress was lovely & our table was in a great spot. Will return next time we have a show to go to!
