We had enjoyed PJ's on the Southbank and decided to use the airport restaurant to have our last meal in Australia before flying back to England. We were not disappointed, we found a table close to the window where we could watch aero plane activity. I had my last pint of Aussie beer, my wife her last Lemon, Lime and... More

Pleasant decor and decent service. My husband had the ploughman's plate and I had chicken starters. We also ordered french fries. My chicken was most bone and blood tissue. I didn't eat most of it. My husband's meal was very bland and uninteresting. At least the french fries were good. We agreed that pretty much anywhere else at the airport... More

This is an awesome place to have a meal and do your work at Melbourne's Airport. Good variety of meals and a relaxing place to sit and enjoy a drink.

I had just arrived from a flight from Brisbane and had 45 minutes to kill as I was waiting for my wife to collect me. I was quite hungry so I tried their "pizza of the day" ($14.50) which contained salamai and sweet peppers and lots of mozzerella cheese. Very good price for the airport and I enjoyed this with...

Meetings finished, so off to the Airport I went, handed in the car and found myself with 4 hours to kill. There are only so many shops in the Terminal you can look at. Time for a drink. O'Briens offers a great menu and a very comfortable atmosphere. I ordered myself a pint of Kilkenny and a Ploughmans Platter and... More

A great little spot in a busy airport. Drinks were a bit expensive at $9 for a vodka lime & soda but that is to be expected in an airport. I had a steak and my wife had the gnocchi pesto. Both were delicious and perfectly cooked. Mushroom sauce was a little bland, but not bad. Staff were friendly and... More

Waiting for connecting flight and had the time to stop in for a meal. Ordered the Chicken curry - would NOT recommend it. The chicken piece's I couldn't eat and the curry sauce was too sweet and sickly. A side of chips came out with the meal, which was not on the menu and after tasting the meal I'm guessing... More

I had just seen a friend head off through the International gate and I thought it was a good time for a breakfast. Avoiding the fast food outlets, I chose the Irish pub and was delighted to see its breakfast menu showing a dish of "bacon and beans". So I ordered and paid for it plus a large coffee. 1... More
