We were here for our friends 25 wedding anniversary. The service and food was excellent and they were very accomodating. Highly recommend it for either a quick meal before a show or for a nice dinner with friends.

The service was amazing. We loved the olives and the calamari. The fettuccine marinara was quite tasty. Very good location and open early for pre- show dinner.

We chose to eat outside to enjoy a lovely cool breeze as the sun went down on a hot day. Chosen by chance, as we were on our way to the theatre, we were very satisfied - we would go again. Attentive and friendly service was followed with great food served very hot. We thought prices were very good compared... More

When ever I visit Melbourne, I never miss a chance to go and sample some good Italian food at Mezzo. Try the tiramisu it's to die for. The owner is very helpful and friendly, just what you would expect from an Italian restaurant.

We enjoyed a delicious meal prior to a show at Her Majesty’s Theatre. Our host was warm & welcoming and looked after our group of 11 people very well. The waiting staff were attentive and their service was polite and friendly. The meal options were excellent and reasonably priced and after eating we strolled 100m down the road to the... More

Food is fine but service is not outstanding. Whilst we were not neglected, after taking our initial order the staff never came back to offer another drink, dessert, coffees or anything additional. I thought that was strange as they had missed a clear opportunity to provide more. There was a group there and I guess they thought we (party of... More

Staying in Chinatown

Neighbourhood Profile
Locals know that Chinatown is the tried and true place to eat before hitting the nightclub scene. The place simply buzzes, and the well-preserved buildings exude a sense of Imperial China stemming from immigration over a century ago. In restaurant after restaurant on Little Bourke Street, you'll find delicious dishes such as sizzling honeyed prawns, and value for your money. Stately matrons oversee family kitchens serving up age-old recipes. The lighting may be unromantic, the patrons loud, and the service no-nonsense, but the food is sensational.
