One of our favourite places, Half Acre always look after us brilliantly. The staff are extremely knowledgable about the menu and attentive to dietary issues and the food is just first class. Everything is delicious. We had a reasonable sized group and there was an abundance of yummy food for everyone. Great night!

We did the bottomless lunch on a Saturday afternoon. The set menu was absolutely delicious and very plentiful, between the six of us there were still leftovers. Loved that the drinks seemed to be pre-made so there was barely a wait after they were ordered and staff were very attentive so whenever we'd finished our drinks they were asking what we wanted next. The only downside is that the cocktails seemed to not be extremely alcoholic but if you drink the occasional prosecco you will still reach your desired level of drunk. Overall the best experience, great value for money and hands down the best bottomless experience I've had in Melbourne!

Great first night dinner after another Melbourne COVID lockdown. We were lucky enough to have a separate space for cocktails before dinner! Bar and wait staff were on the ball and attentive, food delicious and obviously well worth another visit!

Almost the whole menu is gluten free with heaps of vegetarian options. Would definitely recommend for small or large groups
Worth coming back to try more menu options

Love Half Acre! The food was absolutely delicious, we could have eaten everything on the menu. Barramundi, scallops, figs were amazing but everything was so good - even the bread and butter!

The chocolate nemesis - wow! Only regret was sharing it!

Staff were really friendly and attentive.

We will definitely be back again...and again.
I would highly recommend.

A very ambient space with great servers who had stacks of personality.
A variety of dishes catering to our dietary requirements. Entrees were dee-licious in terms of variety of flavours. Mains need a little more of that variety, but overall, so good!

Overpriced for a underwhelming food menu. Needed at least an extra main dish on the bottomless lunch menu.

Venue is beautiful and staff were very friendly.

Unfortunately there were a couple of things on the day that were disappointing, the drinks took longer than the food to arrive, 2 items on the set sharing menu were not brought out/available and the wait staff were hard to get a hold of. The good was nice but for the price I expected more.

Bottomless drinks is not great. You have to go up to the bar yourself, wait in line to be served the alcohol, and then make the cocktail yourself (with no guidance on what tastes good)

Food was fine but nothing I would say dream about but that I’m sure is my personal taste. Chaotic way of serving, we missed out on one of the plates as they forgot about us.

Really loved this place, we went in the morning for the brunch sitting. There weren't many people there so we had free reign with the make your own cocktail bar.
My friends and I loved the food and loved how we were able to make our own drinks.
All the staff were super friendly and helpful.
I highly recommend this place, it is stunning inside and has a beautiful atmosphere.

Went here for a work dinner on a Wednesday night with 11 people. Ended up being great value in terms of food ordering dishes we wanted to try and sharing them. The food is amazing. The service is attentive. Everyone said they would go back again. Def have a meal during the day too so you can see out the glass roof and courtyard.

The place is fantastic and the food amazing, really good size servings full of flavour. We really enjoyed everything we ordered. Especially the steak and the lamb was to die for accompanied by a beautiful radiccio salad. Dessert of our choice was the baked cheesecake which was fantastic light and the sweetness was so balanced. We definitely visiting again soon.

I was there for Sunday bottomless brunch and I was really disappointed when the wait staff charged the card that was put down when the booking was made. They didn’t ask for permission or check if that was the card we wanted to use, they simply charged it. That’s is extremely inappropriate and is not something I have encountered before.
