I have to say my family enjoyed the venue, staff and the menu. I had walked pass on a number if occasions and wanted to go. I was not dissappointed. The service was so good, very attentive but not over the top. Would recommend. .

Great building but out of the way and hardly worth going out of your way for I would suggest - hard to make the atmosphere warm and friendly and the attempts to do so with the 'art works' missed the mark. Went with a large...More

Went for a drink on a Thursday night and was very disappointed by the cold and cheap-looking furnishings (Soviet-style plastic-looking) not befitting for such a beautiful building. The drinks list was limited and (not surprisingly) hardly anyone was there. Will not go again.

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

even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air
