It's 45 years since I had my office directly opposite Vlado's, and in the golden days of tax-deductible lunches, it was my second home and Vlado Gregorek was a good pal. I blame him for my weight problem! It's terrific to see this second-generation family business still flourishing, with the food quality and service undiminished. What a great Melbourne institution!

An excellent steak experience in suburban Melbourne, just a 10 minute drive from the city centre. The decor has not changed in this place since the 60's by the looks, but the reason people flock to this place is for the great range of superior steaks. A great atmosphere for business diners to relax and discuss the day's work events.... More

There is only the set menu to choose from, and that's all you need! I am not the biggest steak fan, but this place has changed me! It is the only place I will order a steak now!

Vlado's has a view about change - if something is working well, don't make changes. At Vlado's the formula has worked well for over 40 years, perhaps nearly 50. I am not sure, but I do know that I first came over 40 years ago.. Vlado's has the formula - great meat, beautifully prepared, salads to complement, famous mustard and... More

I had some Singaporean friends in town who wanted a good steak, Vlado's was recommended and they loved it. They have a fixed menu and everything was very good. My friends were happy and we all enjoyed the evening

My first experience with Vlado's goes back 30 years, when you were treated to a juicy flavoursome sausage, amazing share platter of several different meats, small hamburger patties and sweetbreads, a delicious steak cooked to perfection, and a light, thin crepe with strawberries, cream and ice cream. Just way too much meat! Now the sausage is dry and bland, the... More

This is a great restaurant if you like meat. Fantastic steaks great atmosphere, and experience, especially so when the old man was still cooking. Don't expect to have much of a choice all meat and a little bit of salad.

It is a set menu and I had heard rave reviews from other family who had been there so I had high expectations. Appetizer was a single dry sausage, entree was a shared mixed meat plate which was nothing special, main was a steak, your choice of cut, cooked to your liking. It was indeed cooked perfectly, though to my... More

Very old fashioned restaurant. Service was excellent. Steaks cooked to perfection, It is a set menu and the food served to accompany steaks could use a little tweaking,

Dinner with the boys, very simple menu and set up but good, my porterhouse was very very nice. It's not fine dining but it is good steak.
