With 7 members of our family we had a very nice lunch last Sunday at La Camera. We regularly go to La Camera because the food and service is always good. It is in a very nice central location overlooking the Yarra River at Southgate. Thoroughly recommended!

Great views, good location perfect for pre theatre.
HI Denyse, Although I have worked here for 13 years, I still find it hard to believe how well the chefs manage the pre-theatre service. Sometimes, when we get everyone walking in at the same time, they manage to prepare over 200 dishes in 1 and a half hours. Great effort by both the kitchen and floor staff. Cheers Paul Scidone Manager

The community night with the Italian trio was great - the food and service are always first class
Hi David, Must be déjà vu. I am sure or just responded to your review...lol. So disappointed I missed the Italian Night. Who ever thought about this idea must be a clever chap:). Cheers Paul

Choose from a selection of platters with a huge variety of mouth-watering antipasti and receive a complimentary aperitif….Aperol Spritz, Campari, Vermouth, Negroni, Sbagliato and Prosecco. The balcony is always the best postion to enjoy your aperitivo which overlooks The Yarra River and has breathtaking views of the Melbourne’s beautiful city. Choose from a selection of classic tapas style hot plates, cured meats and roasted veggies. It’s the perfect way to start your evening before your main meal, as a pre or post theatre meal or just to catch up with friends.
