We have been here a number of times now and the quality of the food and the effervescent welcoming host, Jenny, makes it like your visiting friends for dinner. The menu is simple but done really well. My wife and I had the porterhouse steak with Bearnaise sauce and of course frites and they were well cooked to our order... More

First time visit was a very memorable experience. The food was exquisite and the owner welcomed people as if it was her home. The desserts were glorious and I highly recommend he Creme surprise. Good selection of wines were a great accompaniment to the delicious food.

We had a celebration dinner for 6 people. It's a great location not far from the city. There are lots of traditional French food on the menu. Everything was beautifully cooked and served. The wine list is not large but has interesting wines at reasonable prices. BYO is also encouraged, which is unusual. Jenny and her staff looked after us... More

My husband and I booked dinner at Moretons as a romantic evening and it was truly everything we could wish for and probably more! The second we walked in, we were welcomed by Jenny who was very friendly and made you feel right at home. The restaurant was very cozy , and although the restaurant wasn't big and the place... More

Moreton's is truly a hidden gem. Nestled in between take-away shops on Rathdowne Street, Moreton's is a cosy family-run restaurant with delicious food, and lovely staff. Jenny and her husband run the restaurant while their son is the chef. Jenny welcomes all her guests at the door with a lovely smile and you quickly get to know her. I go... More

Went to family-run Moretons during a night when local football team (Carlton) had a match, and it was practically empty. Normally it seems to be quite busy. However this allowed us to have long and nice chats with "mrs Moreton" which was very pleasant. The restaurant is small and cosy, you are more or less encouraged to BYO, to visit... More

We decided on the Rib of Beef for two and were delivered a meal for one at $78! The beef had far too much fat on it, there was very little mustard and the lighting was so poor you could hardly see what we were eating. The meal was overpriced and we both felt that the waitress invaded our time... More

This restaurant is a small single fronted building in Rathdown Street. If you are not specifically looking for it you would most likely not know it was there. Inside the feel is just like we have experienced in parts of Paris – minimalist decor small and intimate. The only thing missing are the French accents. For the menu, there are... More
