the food was certainly very nice and the menu very enticing (a good variety) however the service and food was extremely slow - over two and a half hours for dinner for 2 of us - no reason or apology given - disappointing

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
