Very accessible down a little laneway in the centre of the city. Fun decor, very laid back atmosphere. Nice selection of wines, beers, cocktails at good prices, also a snack food menu to team with the drinks. Friendly service, very relaxed.

Lovley old world class, great for a quick drink, coffee, relaxed a little hidden surprise. A sister bar next door on the ground floor is cool too.

We also visited on the night of the 'broken pipes', and we were also surprised that nothing had been mentioned about the limited menu when confirming the booking earlier in the day. The evening didn't get off to a great start as we were also sat at the table nearest the door on a very cold night, plus the female... More

A group of us booked this yesterday (Friday night) for a friend's birthday dinner and I arrived there earlier to drop off the surprise cake. However nothing was said about "broken pipes" which would result in only a 4 course degustation menu (waiter was not sure of what was going to be served either). When i went back at night... More

This restaurant would have to be the best we have been in, the food style of sharing plates similar to Tapas was out standing and well priced. The atmosphere was fantastic and the help given in the selection from the menu was amazing, all combining in a most enjoyable evening. Would definitely recommend.

Come here on a regular basis, the food is brilliant and wine list is unbelievable. You can also choose one of the many beer from upstairs which is a craft beer bar

Ventured out to MOO on a rainy Saturday evening for a birthday celebration. Upon walking down to the basement we were welcomed to a very warm and cosy space. Food was great and well priced, service was attentive without being too eager. Would definitely go back. Favourite dish: tepanyaki whiting.

Food was OK. Cocktails were terrible, stay away from the Cheescake cocktail - undrinkable!Staff were a little strange, they kept sneaking a look at our table and then scuttering away. I'm sure they were just checking to see how we were going but we all felt uncomfortable by it! Décor was great and atmosphere was good.

Food was lovely and very reasonably priced. Crazy wine list. Service was beyond perfect. Melbourne right down to the dungeon entry via a small laneway.

Located in a basement with a creaky door which opens itself (must have been a sensor but it certainly added to the atmosphere!). We decided to go for cocktails before our Tapas meal and the bartender treated us to a lecture and demonstartion of how to make a Smoky Old Fashioned, with good humour to accompany!

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
Central Business District
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 of Berlin in the street art, a touch of Paris in the umbrella-shaded cafes and, reminiscent of Rome, eateries tucked away in the most unlikely of places. Perhaps you might want a break and cross the Yarra River to Southbank - walk along the promenade, bask in the sun at a waterside bar and decide whether to go to the nearby casino or book a ticket at the Melbourne theatre company.
