Atta Restaurant

Albert Park

Lorette dined on Sat, 13th Oct 2018 (10)

This is really some of the best Indian food we have eaten. However it is very very expensive but the servings are a good size. I do think however that charging for rice is obscene in an Asian restaurant even if it is an Indian fusion and up,Arlen restaurant....and also the naan was hugely overpriced. We would love to go back....but we will reconsider and not go too often because of the pricing for naan rice and vegetables.

The Olive Tree

South Melbourne

Our favourite restaurant

Long Chim Melbourne


Lorette dined on Sun, 6th May 2018 (10)

Long Chim has the most spectacular food! David Thompson you are the best Thai chef! We have been to Long Chim twice and each time food reminds us so much of the amazing Nahm (Bangkok) flavours. Thank you for opening in Melbourne. We will definitely come back regularly. This Thai food is the only Thai food that we would eat in Australia....Thanks again

QT' Kitchen

Glen Iris

The food was okay. The pho was not really that good and it was served lukevwarm...Should be hot. It was an average type neighbourhood restaurant which needs to do better on the slow service and the lack of good English spoken by the wait staff.

Zen Japanese


Lorette dined on Sun, 4th Feb 2018 (9)

We have been coming to Zen for a long time. Food is great. Unfortunately the wait staff on yesterday Sunday 4 February was not up to usual standard. We also notice that the floor of the restaurant is very sticky and not up to clean standard. It really needs a good wash! Apart from those 2 items of concern we love Zen and will come back.

Bombay by Night

Was a pleasant evening but this place doesn't stand out from most Indian cafes in Melbourne!

Preserve Kitchen

Glen Iris

Lorette dined on Sat, 9th Apr 2016 (2)

It's a nice neighbourhood restaurant however food not good. Entree mussels very salty. Fillet steak so tough that we couldn't eat it and we asked for medium. It was actually bad quality steak. Chips very expensive and probably came out of frozen packet $8 for small bowl! The manager did give us complementary desserts after he saw the steak left and we did kindly tell him it's inedible... Offered us another steak but we said its ok. Very very overpriced! $41 for steak which was leather!

La Boca Bar & Grill


Lorette dined on Thu, 25th Feb 2016 (9)

Excellent meal....11 hour slow cooked lamb really delicious.

The food was good middle eastern food but I think somewhat over priced! There was a huge family party and it was very noisy and not a romantic evening. But the food came out quickly and the servers were efficient & friendly.

Cafe Republic

South Yarra

Station Hotel


Lorette dined on Sat, 24th Oct 2015 (1)

We have been going to Station hotel about 3 times per year for the last 6 years and it has been excellent. We note that it had changed owners a while ago but continued to go to dine there! Last night Saturday 24 October we were very disappointed! There were 4 of us at the table. We had at least 4 different servers serving us and none of them showed any interest in us as their customer! Service was terrible and abrupt No bread as per usual with drinks Server insisted on pouring our sparkling water when we said we would pour it as we wanted it French onion soup where the onions were burnt....tasted awful Seafood hot pot which was listed as a soup on the menu had no liquid only seafood...2 prawns and some mussels and clams 3 of the shellfish items mussels and clams which weren't opened so couldn't be eaten. 3 appetizers came first followed 10 minutes later by the 4th which was actually a wagyu tartare which didn't need cooking! We really all wanted to eat at the same time! We had to prompt of of the servers to find out where the 4th appetizer was? Hamburger used to come with fries but came with greasy onion rings an no salad The salad that used to come with all meals has changed to a few leaves and dressing We found our dining experience at Station Hotel not as enjoyable as usual.....except for our company of course. We had recommended this restaurant to our friends as being a really top place to eat. However, we were very disappointed last night after so many years of frequenting this restaurant and recommending the dining experience to many friends and bringing many of our friends to dine there! Whats going on with our favourite restaurant??
