Excellent food, and great atmosphere.

QPO Restaurant Bar & Events

Kew

Ron dined on Fri, 22nd May 2015 (9)

Good choice on the menu. Noisy. Mains came with veges/salads, which is not always the case these days.

Arintji Steak & Seafood

Melbourne CBD

Ron dined on Wed, 13th May 2015 (9)

I think it is unfortunate when to get veggies or salad to go with your main, you have to pay and extra $12. It sort of tries to hide the fact that the main is around $50.

Kabul Restaurant & Cafe

Elsternwick

Ron dined on Wed, 15th Apr 2015 (10)

Hadn't been for a couple of years, and we forgot how generous the serves are. Their lamb is especially good.

George's Greek Tavern

Ron dined on Fri, 27th Mar 2015 (10)

Great service, and an excellent range on the menu.

Script Bar & Bistro

Southbank

Ron dined on Wed, 25th Mar 2015 (9)

Script Bar & Bistro

A quiet night for the theatre and the restaurant, and excellent service from the 2 waiters.

Italy 1 at Camberwell

Camberwell

Ron dined on Sat, 4th Oct 2014 (9)

Excellent food, although the fish portions 2 of us had seemed a bit tiny. And then they forgot our side. Not convinced that you have to buy a side, when the main course of $30 or more?

Script Bar & Bistro

Southbank

Ron dined on Sat, 30th Aug 2014 (6)

A waiter needs to start somewhere, but ours had a terrible night. Each course (there were 5 of us) had at least one error, and then we got the wrong bill. Very disappointing.

Aja

Albert Park

Ron dined on Tue, 26th Aug 2014 (9)

Excellent service and plenty of choice on menu. $9 corkage seems a bit much.

Arintji Steak & Seafood

Arintji Steak & Seafood

Melbourne CBD

Ron dined on Sun, 3rd Aug 2014 (8)

Excellent location, great food. Quiet, even though there was quite a crowd later in the night. Toilets are down a very steep set of stairs. But were very clean.

Script Bar & Bistro

Southbank

Ron dined on Sat, 31st May 2014 (10)

Interesting new menu. However the fish was undercooked.

Good attentive if imposing service. Food excellent.

Script Bar & Bistro

Southbank

Ron dined on Mon, 24th Jun 2013 (9)

Waiters should not interupt conversations to ask if 'everything OK?' type questions.

Italy 1 at Camberwell

Camberwell

Ron dined on Fri, 31st May 2013 (10)

Outstanding food and excellent service made for a great evening. It seemed a bit expensive.

Aja

The Strand Restaurant

Williamstown

Ron dined on Thu, 13th Dec 2012 (10)

Both dishes (duck and whole snapper) we had were delightful. Service was excellent. Dimmi booking worked well.

Italy 1 at Camberwell

Camberwell

Ron dined on Mon, 24th Sep 2012 (10)

Food was fantastic. Service was attentive, but not intrusive. Great evening.

Script Bar & Bistro

Southbank

Ron dined on Wed, 29th Aug 2012 (9)

The mains were excellent - especially the fish pie, last night's special. The side dish (Brussel Sprouts) was very large - certainly too much for two people to share.

Script Bar & Bistro

Southbank

Ron dined on Wed, 11th Jul 2012 (9)

We were pleased to see the new menu - it had been getting tired. All three of us enjoyed our meals. It is tiresome when the waitress twice interrupts a person to ask how it is going.

Script Bar & Bistro

Southbank

Ron dined on Mon, 14th May 2012 (8)

Food was excellent. Our waitress interrupted us at least 4 times with questions like 'Is everything OK here?' She was very annoying.

Script Bar & Bistro

Southbank

Ron dined on Wed, 25th Apr 2012 (10)

The three of us thoroughly enjoyed our meals. The menu offers a good range, as does the wine list. The service was attentive, but not oppressive. An excellent pre-theatre experience.

Script Bar & Bistro

Southbank

Ron dined on Fri, 9th Mar 2012 (9)

The special tuna and the beef fillet were excellent, however the ravioli was disappointing. Not sure about having to pay extra to get a salad and/or vegetables. (For example the beef was already $35.) Service is consistently good. Great location for a pre theatre meal.

Script Bar & Bistro

Southbank

Ron dined on Fri, 29th Apr 2011 (9)

There was a good variety of food available - the three dishes we had were excellent. Service is prompt, without being too obvious or pushy. Two courses and coffee fitted easily into 90 minutes, and we were off to the MTC.

Script Bar & Bistro

Southbank

Ron dined on Mon, 18th Apr 2011 (9)

We had 4 different mains. All were excellent. One criticism is the need to get a side dish if you want vegetables (or salad) with the main course. Seems to be a growing strategy to keep the apparent cost of the main lower than it should be.

Script Bar & Bistro

Southbank

Ron dined on Thu, 13th Jan 2011 (8)

The beef and the fish were both excellent last night. The need to get a side (eg potatoes) to supplement the main was disappointing. The place was full, but service was still excellent. A good atmosphere, and ideal for a pre-theatre meal.
