When we want a good steak (which is fairly often) we head straight for here. The beef is always beautiful and cooked to medium-rare perfection. Also has an interesting wine list with some little-known delicious offerings. The restaurant is small with a casual and nice ambiance, so suggest booking to ensure a table.

We had a most pleasant gentlemens lunch here in mid December. The steak was excellent as usual and the service and wine list very good. Almost five star!

Heard good things so went with a work colleague. I had the 200g eye fillet with feta mushrooms as a side. The steak was cooked perfectly (medium rare), very tender and with a slight smokey taste and came with chips (you could choose a potato as well) The mushrooms were very tasty. Definitely will be coming back. Service. 4/5 Atmosphere.... More

This busy 'steak house' provided a good menu and wine list. The steak got a big tick ( great that you can order in 2 sizes) , but lamb was undercooked and not good quality. If lamb is to be served rare then wait staff need to advise and check with patron how they want it as they do with... More

Visited this restaurant twice now as had to come back for more porterhouse steak! From the moment we walked in the door to the moment we left, the service couldn't have been better. Such friendly and helpful staff. The wine was also lovely as was the atmosphere within the restaurant. Will be back again :)

Thank Pats1990

The first Squires Loft was opened in 1992 in Church Street Brighton. Our reputation for consistently delivering great steaks and unique flavours led us to a larger store in South Yarra where we are still located today. The success of the Squires Loft formula and demand for Squires Loft branded products led to substantial interest from staff, customers and business owners who wanted to duplicate the business. This has resulted in 15 steakhouse restaurants operating around Australia. These steakhouses are located around Melbourne, Country Victoria, Brisbane, Gold Coast and Western Australia. Further steakhouses are in the pipeline and there is significant interest, which we believe should lead to more Squires Loft steakhouses opening. As a result of this demand and significant recognition of the Squires Loft name, Squires Loft FRANCHISE Pty Ltd has been formed to enable the expansion of the brand.
