Our family went there for dinner. The waiters on roller skaters were very skilful and novel. The live entertainment by the waiters added to the authenticity of the diner atmosphere. The food was good and the service excellent. We agreed we would go back

I had a normal beef burger with cheese and it was dry and the cheese tasted like plastic. The patty was thin and tasteless. The staff were very friendly and helpful.

Cute atmosphere, roller skating waitress a bit of fun but I would never go back. Food was slow to come out even when very few people were in the restaurant. The chilli dog was pretty average. Hotdog skin was so tough I could hardly cut...More

Chapel Street
Seek and ye shall find! Prahran is a treasure hunter’s
paradise of vintage stores, upscale boutiques and
emporiums. Chapel Street is a one-stop shop with
specialty stores selling just about everything. The
famous Chapel Street Bazaar has so many curious and
vintage knick-knacks that you will feel as if you're
in a huge and busy museum. By contrast, at the
northern end of Chapel Street, South Yarra and Windsor
