Dropped in for a pre dinner cocktail on NYE. Good service and a very nice rooftop setting. There is a wide variety of cocktails which were all enjoyed amongst our group. Sangria was also a great way to finish

Do not come here on a sunny Saturday afternoon if you enjoy an Aperol spritz or sparkling wine. Upon ordering an Aperol spritz from the menu staff advised all the sparkling wine was reserved in case another group wanted it later. Needless to say we...went somewhere that serves the drinks on their menu!More

Hi Amy, Thank you for highlighting this to us. We apologise for the disappointment you experienced. It is a regrettable situation. It was a poor choice of wording. We do hope that we will see you in the future for an Aperol Spritz

So we mention the pints happy hour to me??? 4) when paying they charged full price for wife’s wine when queried they said happy hour is not Friday night then why the hell were we offered happy our drinks and prices 5) asked for salt and pepper , he bought out 2 salts and no pepper ? 6) asked for Tabasco sauce bought out a bottle that had Nothing in it and said that’s all they have 7) before we sat outside we asked if it rains do these outside tables get wet and was no, any of course it rained later and we got wet 8) ordered well done steak and of course it was up punk inside but still ate it and was nice Not going back many other optionsMore

Booked a business function at last minute and had a pizza night on the rooftop. Good value for money. We had a blast and our vegetarian staff were well catered for.

We spent NYE at this charming restaurant. The food was tasty and affordable, and the service (despite the large crowd) fast and friendly. There are a number of great cafes and restaurants in Melbourne, but rarely one that has some uniformly lovely people working for...them.More

Very average and uninspiring meal. Very different to previous visits over many years. Staff where pleasant but much more interested in their own company. Don’t think there were any cooks who knew how to cook Italian in the kitchen. Perhaps the real chef is away...on holidays?More

Good vibe and friendly atmosphere- a classic must do roof top bar whilst in The City. The margaritas quite refreshing for a hot summer evening.

As the designated driver for my husbands work Christmas party last night, it was never going to be quite as much fun for me and they were in for a few rounds. I was a gorgeous night and the bar had a really great vibe...but I was desperately tired and had sore feet. The most amazing waiter went out of his way to procure a coffee from the downstairs restaurant and bring it to the rooftop bar for me, regardless of the fact that it was quite busy. This kind of service is so rare, I am truly grateful. I will definitely be back to try the restaurant and have a few drinks - my turn next!More

If you are considering dining then go to a real restaurant as this is just a bar that serves food with minimal effort and below average customer service and all this for above average prices. With so many choices just have a drink at the...average roof top bar.More

I was here to speak at an event for City Bible Forum - both lunchtime and evening. The food was good, the atmosphere excellent and the staff really helpful. Love the area and the general buzz about the place...A good place to come to when...you visit Melbournes LanesMore

Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways
tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary
feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the

throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You
never quite know what you’ll find around the next
corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and
even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air

Hi, I have booked for Christmas Day & paid - I am concerned though because 11.30 lunch people had to be out by 1.30 & we are coming in at 1.30 - people do not like to be rushed on this special day as often it is only time some people get together. Also when I booked there was a beverage pack with the meal? I was told this was not so when I booked? I have documentary evidence of this. So can you explain what’s going on, is our meal going to be ordinary & are we to be kicked out after 2 hours, is there entertainment or is this a ‘factory’. I went to a place like that last year . I want to know that we will be given amazing food( not sure as we have to pre- order) that you have done something to make this meal special & why was the beverage pack not offered as this was false advertising- concerned to be guest.
