During the wine and food festival the Express Lunch promotion was a good way to check out a top restaurant at a reasonable price. $40 with a glass of Australian wine.
Our first booking was at Bristo Guillaume in the Crown Entertainment Complex, with its wonderful location on Southbank and its striking entrance way.
We were seated [...]

On a recent Monday the beach from Elwood to Port Melbourne was crowded, the roads were hot and the temperature was 37 degrees . And if the waiter was to believed, 50 degrees inside the section of the Nautical Restaurant at 3 Station Pier that is alongside the water at Port Melbourne. The area was [...]

Degraves Street, Hardware Lane, ACDC Lane, Centre Place, Crossley Street, Hosier Lane, Myers Place and Degraves Street.
This is a list of some of the more well-know laneways in Melbourne’s CBD. I have begun and finished with Degraves Street because it’s my favourite laneway. I like its grunginess and dinginess. Its vibe and its people. I [...]

We lunched at this stylish restaurant in Carlisle Street recently and enjoyed the experience – its one we hope to repeat, soon.
Ilona Staller is in a building which was once a bank then it became a Red Rooster outlet and now it has reinvented itself as a comfortable stylish restaurant.
The striking art deco building dominates [...]

The Local in Bay Street Port Melbourne has become a fairly regular haunt, especially for a quick meal after work. I wrote about my first visit here. It has such a nice ‘pubby’ atmosphere – a sort of reminder of what pubs used to be.
There is nothing of the Gastro Pub here – you order [...]

I visited the Red Door in Windsor about eighteen months ago (see here) and had lunch with a friend. The Red Door was relaxed and peaceful. Even though there were a number of customers the feeling was one of intimacy.
Last Saturday evening I returned with a group of ten people for an evening out. Fortunately [...]

The Palmerston Hotel has been around forever or so it seems. I have driven past it countless times. It is something to look at when you are jammed in a traffic snarl on Kings Way.
On warm summer days you can see patrons outside. While I am imprisoned in my car I haven’t warmed to people [...]

The Local Pub is a sports pub and on the evening we were there they had the Rugby world cup on every screen. There are a lot of screens. This is a plus if you are there to watch sport. We had a smallish screen on the wall beside our table. The Rugby Game [...]

The Red Door has been operating in the same space for number years. I have seen the red door and the beautiful street art on the side of the wall but never visited until now. I’m not sure why.
A strong recommendation from a colleague prompted my first visit. She went on a week day evening [...]
