The concept is great but the food and service isn't. Food is food that has been prepackaged and bought in. Nothing fresh. No cook on premises. The stuff member I ordered with could not understand English properly so made it very difficult to get order through until someone else took over. Very expensive for what you get. They charged me...

Food was terrible, very few gluten free options and the salad I had was TERRIBLE, I barely ate... More

I went there with my mothers group. Its service and staff were fantastic and the idea of a play center is fabulous too. However, to charge 10-15 dollars for play is a bit much in my opinion, i didn't use the service as my baby is small. The food on the menu has not much choice and it was over... More

Staying in South Melbourne

Neighbourhood Profile
South Melbourne
South Melbourne hosts the city’s oldest continuous market, founded in 1867. Rows of neatly arranged fruit, vegetables and flowers splash yellows, greens and reds along the entire perimeter, where the whole neighbourhood gathers for Saturday feasts. Inside the hall, shoppers hover over the mouth-watering displays of delicatessens and specialty food shops. Further in, a bazaar full of giftware, clothing, and kitchen utensils completes the scene. Take a break to walk the wide and shady streets and stroll along the Victorian-era heritage terrace houses. But return to the market in time for some paella, simmering in three large frypans on the footpath and served straight onto your plate.
