Australian Restaurant
$$
“Remember when we didn't share every dish on the table? Cumulus was one of the first to show us how good communal meals can be. It's still one of the best at it, whether you visit for a boozy brunch or a late-night snack.”

“Breath taking city views from the 35th floor, french cuisine, great service. Bring the $$$. And if you don't have the $$$, again, stop contemplating and go GET SOME. ”

Speakeasy
$$$
“Eau de Vie was once one of those hidden bars that would take you a good chunk of time to find. Now, it’s one of the worst kept secrets in Melbourne. EDV continues to be one of the busiest cocktail bars in town due to its ability to transport you out of the modern day and into the charms of yesteryear. But it isn’t just the jazzy soundtrack, private booths and staff clad in waistcoats that are the drawcard. EDV backs it up with some serious drinks and also a bit of flair. ”

Argentinian Restaurant
$$$
“San Telmo doesn’t muck around. This gaucho steakhouse run by a bunch of Melbourne hospo gringos lays its carnivorous scene at the entrance, where some impressive bits of cow sit dry ageing behind glass.”

Restaurant
$$$
“It’s still one of Melbourne’s premiere fine dining restaurants, a tight ten booths and all the glossy surfaces you could hope for and the city's most luxurious taramosalata, served in soft folds with none of the faux pinkness.”

Thai Restaurant
$$
“Great service, great food and a large selection of drinks. One of my favorite Thai Fusion restaurant in Melbourne. ”
  • 15 locals recommend
Tapas Restaurant
$$
“It may be a decade old but Matt McConnell's top-of-the-city bolthole hasn't been forgotten by Melbourne diners. Describing it as "tapas focussed" doesn't do justice to the delicacy and thoughtfulness of what appears on either the short regular menu, the expansive list of specials, or what's poured by the bar's excellent staff.”

Wine Bar
$$$
“An elegant late night bar with an old-world feel. There is another bar above called Siglo with an outdoor terrace.”

The Flinders Lane casa serves favourites like signature burritos, tacos, quesadillas and a wide choice of antojitos, with a special mention going to the casa-made range of hot sauces. Make sure to bring plenty of friends and order big to enjoy the fiesta that is Fonda Flinders Lane.”
