What a find. We were in Melbourne and needed a place to go for a nice lunch. The food was fantastic for the price ($85 a head for 5 courses) and a glass of bubbles. The staff were top notch and we had a great...More

Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways
tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary
feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the
city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques,
throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You
never quite know what you’ll find around the next
corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and
even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air

Located in the heart of the CBD within the 530 Collins Street Building is Mr Mason, a French inspired bistro and bar featuring a lounge outdoor terrace and dining area. Mr Mason is a modern French influenced menu but certainly not traditional. Playful twists on French classics are what we're all about. Using seasonal ingredients and locally sourced produce we try and keep things fresh and exciting. The menu is designed to suit all occasions. We cater for those just looking for a light snack to go with their beer or wine all the way through to a 6 course tasting menu for the foodies amongst us. Mr Mason offers a wide range of drinks to suit all occasions and time of day. From an expertly made coffee to get your day started to a dessert cocktail to complete your dining experience and everything in between. Our wine list boasts both old world a new world and ranges anywhere between cheap and cheerful to the more complex and sophisticated.
