Good Vegetarian Options
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 shareable, seasonal and flavourful, Latin fare and bistro dining collide against the norms of the classical medley you know of vegan and vegetarian dining.

Thank you to the incredible chefs and team at Lona Misa - they made our anniversary a very special one! And that's even before we got our food - of which - the flavours were so incredible and mind-blowing that all we could do was do little happy dances with each bite! They are super obliging and considerate to other dietary requests, too (eg. no onion) And the service was also so good, Alex took amazing care and the decor, music, as well as the other diners made the atmosphere vibrant! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! Just go :)

It's an amazing place for vegan food! Just a little less tasty than when we ordered online unfortunately. But definitely worth a visit:)

Excellent service from the servers - they were very attentive without needing to be called over throughout the evening.

Wasn’t the biggest fan of the cocktails (but I’m a tough task master) but the food was better than expected! Lots of flavour.

The staff and service is top class. A very enjoyable experience and would go back. The only criticism I could give is the deserts were a little underwhelming.

Fantastic food and service as always. We tried the Peri Peri Chicken for the first time and were in shock that it's vegan!! So great to be back after being unable to attend during lockdown.

Amazing choice of vegetarian/vegan food - all with wonderful flavours.
We were in a corner booth and felt we got a little ignored, but staff were friendly when called to the table.

I had a great experience dining at Lona Misa. The food was super delicious, in particular the oyster mushrooms from the josper. The interior has been carefully curated and really adds to the ambience.

The food was not very good. We ordered the chorizo with cheese and the corn chips that came with it were cold and hard. The papatas bravas were not good at all and did not taste or look like patatas bravas. I am also not sure that if it was because we arrived just when the restaurant had opened but the staff seemed a bit disorganized, also some of them were not wearing mask

Sadly, we were absolutely disgraced by this restaurant. The food was pretty standard compared to the hundreds of vegan vegetarian options in Melbourne. We dined here based on reviews, so not sure why they are rated so high. The music was too loud. Couldn't hear each other talk. We didn't finish our food, so we asked if we can take the rest home. The waitress looked at us as if we were talking in a language she can't understand. She said no, then looked at us again and suggested that seen as we haven't finished the food she will go and ask if she can get us a tub. She went away, came back and said nope she can't do this and walked off. We eat out ALOT and to be honest this is one of the worst customer experiences. Such a huge disappointment overall. Staff need more training around how to interact with paying customers. An overall odd place to dine at. On a positive note the decor is really good.

I loved the vibe of the location and the service was excellent.
Just felt as if the food didn't measure up. Was happy to pay the $80 for a meal, but felt the food was quite simple, with small portions, that ultimately didn't taste that nice.
