I flew in from interstate for a lunch and this hotel is the PERFECT location, almost across the road from the SkyBus depot. I was met at the door and directed to the dining room. The staff were wait staff were attentive and put water on the table as I arrived without being asked. I thought my chicken breast with leek mash was very tasty, I didn't get to ask others, but there were all a good/generous size. The restroom is Very nice, the girls were impressed. If I have to fly to Melb for a day for lunch, I would definitely come back as the decor is quite nice and it was quiet enough for our table of 7 to be able to talk to everyone on the table; rare these days with restaurants of hard surfaces.
Overall everything was good. Only issue is that one of the four dishes did not come out with everyone else's and it was a few minutes before it came out. Other than that everything was rather pleasant.
Fantastic find. Will return soon. Cleanest and most pleasant toilets I have ever been too besides in a home. Excellent customer service from our wait staff and host!
Location was great for people meeting up before airport & trains
Great venue, we commute from all over Victoria to Southern Cross for regular meetings.
Great place to eat
Was very nice. Ambience spoilt by the trivia comp next to the dining room which made conversation difficult
We had a wonderful night catching up with friends. The location next to Southern Cross Station is perfect allowing us to have a few wines in confidence
Friendly staff great food what more can you ask for. Will definitely be back
Food was good as was service. Good seperation from the pokies and the bar. Good for lunch meetings
Well positioned restaurant being so close to Southern Cross. Ideal to meet friends coming from various parts of Melbourne and reasonably good value for money.
Good pub grub.
Will come again.
Love the Bad Boy Chips here. A great settimg in a convenient location.
Enjoyed our experience
Beautiful and handy venue but too expensive for my taste. Would have been happy to spend more time (and more money) there but don't think it's good value for money. Had a burger which was beautiful but at $25 too expensive. Beer was expensive as well. Great venue but too expensive to spend the whole afternoon there.
Good service and food. Suburban atmosphere in cbd
Delicious meals and lovely service. Perfect for a catch up and lunch/dinner when going to Marvel stadium. Will definitely return
Great for post afl game celebrations and dinner
A fabulous old fashioned comfortable and most importantly friendly pub with a fabulous atmosphere, good food and drinks and the staff were terrific.

Signed, sealed, delivered - I’m yours Mail Exchange Hotel.
This historic Melbourne venue is the perfect spot for wining and dining - open for breakfast, lunch, dinner and everything in between. Housed on the lower ground level of the old Mail Exchange building this place is steeped in history and old school grandeur. As soon as you enter you’ll be sold - no need to return to sender. If you’re feeling peckish hit the lounge and order a few snacks, but if you’re after something more substantial sidle into the bistro and dine on pub grub classics that have had their flavour dial turned right up. This place is ideal for groups, so get your mates together and get ready to drink and dine in style.
Best dish: chicken parmagiana: panko and parmesan crumbed chicken breast, roasted tomato Napoli sauce, virginia ham and mozzarella cheese + chips and salad.
