All four of us enjoyed the food very much. Excellent produce, beautifully prepared and presented. The Egg in Verjuice was particularly spectacular. We all had different dishes so a good selection. I enjoyed the Kedgeree very much. More

Asian | Southbank, Inner City

(1). Environment was good. (2). Service was ok, can be better. We were having Chinese tea. No one topped it up when it was empty. We had to call the waitress few times. Not good considering they were charging us $5.00 per head. (3). Food largely fine. We ordered 3 mains and 3 entrees among 3 of us. Except one scallop main disk, rest was good. (4). Not really value for money. Compare to other restaurants in Crown complex and Southbank, certainly Silks was over price with small dish size More

Seafood | Southbank, Inner City

This was my second visit to The Atlantic for a special lunch and it didn’t disappoint. The restaurant offers fine dining without the fuss which is just perfect for us. Staff are professional and personable, lovely setting, excellent food. Piped music a little loud and not really suited to the vibe for a Sunday lunch but this is a small criticism! More

We used to go to Breslin often but found after a menu change we weren’t satisfied with the new menu. After not going there for 2 years we were pleasantly surprised by a revamped menu. Thoroughly enjoyed our tasting plates and salad. Thought it great value for money. The wait team were attentive and happy. Will definitely go back👋 More

Thai | Southbank, Inner City

Much better quality than other Thai joints around the city and surrounding suburbs but Melbourne is littered with tasty Thai restaurants and the experience was not supremely better especially given it does cost about double of suburban Thai restaurants. However, I would definitely visit again with friends and families. Thai food is just awesome! More

Great place to go before a play or a movie (which is what we were doing) - Let the staff know your time-frame and they'll make sure that you're out in time. Also great for just having a relaxing diner with friends. Food is good and staff friendly and make sure that you are happy with everything. More

Ammy and I had a splendid romantic dinner at Bistro Guillaume. I had been at the restaurant for a work function some years back and had been very impressed. This was our first opportunity to go as a couple and Bistro Guillaume hasn't let anything slide at all. The food was exquisite, the staff could not have been more welcoming or more professional. Great wine, great cocktails, lovely atmosphere. Can't wait to go again. More

Booked through OpenTable who did not pass it on to the restaurant so we were not listed as having a booking which was disappointing. The restaurant advised this happens regularly and not being too busy at that time, seated us immediately. The table on the balcony overlooking the river and the city was a delight. Absolutely beautiful food, friendly staff and lovey ambience. Will definitely come back. Highly recommended... More
