$41 to $100
Vegetarian / Vegan
A collaboration with renowned Melbourne chefs Shannon Martinez (Smith & Daughters, Smith & Daughters Deli) and Ian Curley (French Saloon, Kirk’s Wine Bar), Lona Misa is a rebellious renaissance from root to stem, sustainably crafted to be seasonal, full of flavour, and memorable. The result? "A deliciously lively eatery that provides the ideal setting for coming together and taking part in the simple act of enjoying good food that is kind to the planet" (TimeOut).

Awarded One Hat by the prestigious Good Food Guide 2023, Lona Misa’s Latin fare and bistro dining collide against the norms of the classical medley you know of vegan and vegetarian dining. Think of dishes like Brazilian steafood stew Moqueca, roasted padron & manchego croquetas, or pastor mushrooms grilled over charcoals on Josper with corn puree, fermented pineapple & chilli.

    I love all food. Have not eaten vegan food at a restaurant before. Lona Misa surpassed all my expectations. The ambience was gorgeous, service impeccable as the staff were attentive, from walking through the door, right to the coffee and teas. Shannon Martinez was so present and loved her aura and the Team who presented us with this amazing menu experience.

    This was our second visit to Lona Misa and whilst we loved the food on our first visit - we were disappointed with the food this time - it just didn’t quite hit the spot.

    Why do you call vegan food steak tartare.. ridiculous… why call any vegan food by a meat name.. if you want to eat vegetarian and vegan then call it what it is made from !! Did not like fried olives… the water chestnut dish was not good at all, mushrooms too rich.. overall a bad dining experience and could not eat most of it. Thought wine list was poor and expensive.. Pewsey Vale reisling for $76 .. really?? Waitress was lovely but will definitely not be going back or re recommending it

    Our experience was less than ideal. We tried to order more food but were told we couldn't because we had to leave in 20 minutes. They rushed us again 10 minutes later. It's an expensive place for this kind of service. I won't go back.

    The ambience was amazing. We had great service and the food was so different. Great attention to detail. Noise level despite being full was really comfortable.

    Started well with attentive staff to take our order & help with menu suggestions & drinks. Starters were delicious. Our main arrived a little too soon. Disappointed to find it our eggplant was undercooked. Our staff person didn’t come near us again. Had to get up & find more water & have another staff refill glasses, take a drink order & return main to the kitchen. I wouldn’t rebook. Basic skill to actually serve dishes cooked!
