The food took 70 minutes to arrive, after ordering. And this was at 1.40pm after the lunch hour crowd. The place wasn't busy but did have a function or footy lads in the corner.

It was OK. I've had the same choice before and I think it was better then.

great afternoon lunch was delicious

Great location, however meals were overpriced and basic, and despite the tasteful fit-out, the atmosphere is ruined by the pokies ringing in the distance.

Unfortunately the service yesterday was extremely slow, having to wait over 1/2 hour for some meals (especially desert, which for one of my group was a scope of ice cream) with no explanations. Have always found the service good at this venue, so hopefully it was just a one off occasion.

Food was way too expensive for the quality produced. Beer was seriously overpriced. Would suggest notifying customers of beer prices before ordering so that they can choose to buy domestic as imported beers are too expensive.

About The Mail Exchange Hotel

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.
