Well I'm not sure that it's the best meal in Melbourne but it was the best meal we had. The food and drinks were amazing along with the service we couldn't complain about anything! Tip: Get along early to get in without waiting in line!

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
city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques,
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
