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.

    There are many inventive dishes to choose from! 3 of 4 of our courses used shitake mushrooms and I am impressed with the diversity in texture and flavour. The staff are a delight and the space has artistic class yet puts an up-to-date spin on fine dining for all generations of diners & drinkers to enjoy.

    What A cool place to eat!!! My friend is vegan and when we go out she tends to struggle to find things to eat. We were celebrating 11 years of friendship and I thought why not treat ourselves. The staff were absolutely incredible, if memory serves we were waited on by Ashley. She was so helpful and even warned us before ordering their spiciest dish which I thought was so lovely. Yes this restaurant is pricey but you really are getting what you pay for. My only downside was the wait we had for our table. Our booking was at 8:15 and we weren’t sat until almost 9. In saying this we were temporarily sat at a table close to the bar. While we waited and the staff were so attentive giving us water and a drinks menu. My only reason to complain was because we had another booking to get to after dinner but if we hadn’t I wouldn’t have been bothered by the wait. I cannot stress enough how AMAZING the staff made this experience. We never asked for water they were filled the moment they got low, which was helpful with the spicy dish we ate (which was amazing). Even when we had to leave in a rush the staff asked if everything was okay and of course it was I just hate being late to things haha. Overall an amazing experience, decor was so cool and unique, food was Devine, drinks were to die for and again the staff were amazing. Would 100% recommend for a nice night out or a first date.

    Great restaurant, incredible food and can't believe it's all vegan! The decor was cool, quirky and interesting and the vibes were low key but fun! The lion's mane steak and pastor mushrooms in the Josper were absolutely sensational. The beef main was not really to our taste. Cocktails were lovely! Service slightly slow and they forgot a few things but on the whole very smiley, knowledgable staff. Will definitely be visiting again

    The food was delicious but the service was really terrible. We had to keep chasing down waiters to pour us wine, they forgot two of our dishes and when asked are they coming if not please cancel them, we think they told the kitchen to cook them, and never updated us. Then when we asked again they said they were still a while off so they cancelled them for us. Overall it was really dissapointing as I have eaten here previously and loved it.
