This place has polite attentive staff, delicious food and was a pleasure to dine at. We enjoyed the steak which was cooked to perfection and the recommended wine was the perfect choice. We will be returning here.

Classic French restaurant at very reasonable prices. Everyone who works there speaks fluent French. The best restaurant at which we ate in the city.

Serving everyone a plain, dry, tough, duck leg and wing prepared as if we were in the local charcoal chicken shop seemed like a sad travesty of the good meals I have had in the past, including last Xmas. Never again.

When Bergerac closed from its tucked-away position in King Street, I was disappointed. I was not alone, as this Long-established and unpretentious restaurant was a favorite, especially among the local lawyers. But now in its new position, right next to barrister’s chambers, it has a...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

I have not been there for lunch and didn't look at the lunch menus. Parking you may need to find street parking but that may be difficult; best to find a car park close by.
