We came all the way from Sydney to enjoy the duck ribs! OK so we used to live nearby and it was a go-to then, so in Melbourne for the weekend where else to go??!! The food is great, the wine list extensive, and Nick the consummate host. We’ll be back! Hooray for the duck ribs!

Great cocktails and service! I had the Ocean Martini and loved it! And I don't even like gin. Definitely coming back for a meal soon.
Hey Tracey! Thanks so much for coming in! We are glad you enjoyed your time here at Shadowboxer, and pleased that we could move you from vodka to gin! It certainly is a great Martini! Looking forward to seeing you again lovely!

The food was divine but we had an 8:30pm booking and the restaurant had emptied out and lacked a little atmosphere. It seems it’s a place people eat at and go on a Saturday night.

Great entrees and cheeses. The oysters were fantastic. The service was great and the toilets were very clean and tidy
