The would have to be the best steak in Melbourne. An upmarket pub with equal quality of other meals. Absolutely sensational evening - meal/staff/ambience/location.

$30 all you can eat Mussel Monday - food was yum. Appetiser included was delicious and thai mussels were the best. Service was under par. Maybe overwhelmed tho it wasn't crazy busy. Expected more. Friend waited almost 1/2 hr for a glass of wine and had to ask for it several times and there were a few examples of similar lack of attention during lunch. Read a glass of wine was included but not sure - we ordered bottles and weren't told or offered anything as part of the monday deal. Wouldnt not go back. Expect service was just an off day.

Went there for the duck curry and it didn’t disappoint! Very happy with the rest of the meal as well. Very friendly and helpful staff. The venue could do with a reno - the food deserves a slightly fresher feel to the room! Strangely a light above us kept going from dim to bright which was a bit annoying. But overall very good and we will be back.

We love Lamaros having been their multiple times over the years. It was again a comfortable relatively quiet place for a slow Sunday lunch with friends.

Food was enjoyable, wine list interesting and reasonably priced and service friendly and efficient.

The dining room gives you plenty of separation so you can have a good chat without straining to hear (important for us ageing warriors!), seating is comfortable, and access is easy and parking normally pretty good if you’re driving.

One of our favourites even though we don’t live nearby anymore.
