On a perfect Melbourne night, being seated in the back section of Cosi outdoors was awesome. Having been here many times, the calamari entree never disappoints. The lamb shoulder main for 2 people is more than generous as well as being delicious. Cosi also offers...More

Cosi has been a favourite of South Yarra diners for nearly 20 years. Our chef and owner Peter Boukouras utilises the best produce each season has to offer, when possible sourcing local and organic ingredients. This passion comes from a strong Mediterranean background, he was taught from a very young age to use what nature provides and make the most of the whole food. Bringing this philosphy to life at Cosi, Peter will often create his dishes based on what is available on the day. We offer an extensive wine list of both local and imported wines and our knowledgeable and experienced team are always available to offer assistance with selections.
