“Excellent food at budget prices”
Review of Mandoline

Mandoline
Ranked #38 of 108 Restaurants in Elsternwick
Restaurant details
Reviewed 21 February 2017

Mandoline is the latest venture by Master chef Thierry Leievre - formally of the hugely successful Ficelle French Restaurant in Parkdale. Thierry has assembled a number of his kitchen and dining room crew from Ficelle to hit the ground running in his new Elsternwick location. You get the feeling that his crew know what they provide is special.
Mandoline Menu is more International with French influence, than "French".
The cooking is brilliant: the prices are affordable. The menu is interesting, varied and regularly changing.
Mandoline is open 7-days for Breakfast and Lunch - Wednesday-Sat for Dinner. The special two course (or optional three course) lunch and dinner menus are amazing value. The desserts are to die for.
Wine list while not comprehensive is thoughtful and very affordable.
BYO wine available too!

Friday night, three of us. Me, 'Er Indoors and the Pooch. Dog was welcomed, he sat under the outside table with us. Chose off the "special" menu.
Gnocchi for me and veg spring rolls for her. My entree was huge. The gnocchi was so light it almost disappeared before you could chew it. Great flavour. The spring rolls got the thumbs up as well.
Then both had grilled chicken breast. It was without a doubt the most moist and flavoursome chicken I've eaten out. Charred grill marks to add effect it was just delish.
A glass of bubbles for her and I BYO'd my red. Corkage is up there but hey who cares.
Service was impeccable. The two young wait staff were among the best I've seen.
Sensational value. We hope to make this a regular haunt.

Tried dinner menu. Shared calamari. Which was just lightly pan fried. Tasty. Prawn linguine. Plenty of prawns. Not a large serve but satisfying. Creme burlee. Smooth and creamy. Lovely service. Polite and attentive. Only bad is the acoustic in the place hard floors and no soft furnishings make the place loud. Please give this place a go as it deserves to succeed.

Fantastic food and service.
I have tried the bacon onion tart, spring rolls, vegetable stack, lamb burger and chirozo penne. Everything has been amazing. Highly recommend these menu items.
They cater for little people and made us feel very welcome. The owner was lovely.
