We were very disappointed by the service here. Came with a large group for lunch. The food was okay but for $20 off an express menu, you can't complain too much. We were told over the phone they would be able to split the bill...More

Hi Jasmin, Unfortunately for large parties we are unable to split the bill. For large groups this is stated at the time of booking and is also written on our pre-order forms. We do have an ATM on site, as well as two other ATM...More

This place has evidently changed hands. By the look of it it now makes its money on breakfasts lunches and early after work drinks. Certainly not a place that anyone goes for dinner. Good food though and good wine list. Address on web site is...More

Description
Located in the heart of the CBD within the 530 Collins Street Building is Mr Mason, a French inspired bistro and bar featuring a lounge outdoor terrace and dining area. Mr Mason is a modern French influenced menu but certainly not traditional. Playful twists on French classics are what we're all about. Using seasonal ingredients and locally sourced produce we try and keep things fresh and exciting. The menu is designed to suit all occasions. We cater for those just looking for a light snack to go with their beer or wine all the way through to a 6 course tasting menu for the foodies amongst us. Mr Mason offers a wide range of drinks to suit all occasions and time of day. From an expertly made coffee to get your day started to a dessert cocktail to complete your dining experience and everything in between. Our wine list boasts both old world a new world and ranges anywhere between cheap and cheerful to the more complex and sophisticated.
