    The service was quick and the prices were good. The only criticism was that the food was not particularly hot.

    Simple venue with pub style food. Not a huge menu but enough to satisfy the five of us. Staff were very friendly and efficient. Parking in the area is a bit of a problem, with most streets permit only parking.

    The 6 of us had an very enjoyable night at Legends on Saturday night . The food was lovely and reasonably priced . We had a table looking into the course and into the city, very soothing . There was a band playing later in night , sounded good . But it did not intrude into our dinner . The only reason I do not give a 5 star is because of the parking. There is not much available at all.

    Great venue, the back deck overhanging the MV track is a fantastic vantage point. Decent bar prices, food fantastic. Love coming here when in Melbourne and the races are on. Only issue we had was when one of the guys in our party ordered and paid for a childrens menu cheeseburger. He wasn't that hungry, felt like a cheeseburger (which wasn't on the main menu), so went with that option. All was fine until the manager stormed over to our table, sternly pointed out the childrens menu was only for under 12's, and made our guest go back to the cashier to cancel the order and get a refund. She was quite rude about it to be honest. Pretty over the top when between the 6 of us we would have spent over $500 at the venue during the afternoon... He wasn't trying to cheat the system, just wasn't that hungry. Left a bad taste - over a $12 cheeseburger... No commonsense. Like, who cares... Anyway. Other than her attitude, it was good. This comment is more for the Legends staff to lift their game, it's a fun club, not a prison ward... Comment is not to try and stop anyone attending what is a great venue.

    The place was spacious which is great for elderly. Kitchen staff prep was super quick. Nothing "korean" about your korean burger with "bang bang" sauce - the whole burger was tasteless. The elderly meal was good decent size and enjoyable. Parking is a nightmare. No parking on site with only one hour street parking and most probably the reason the place was not packed out.

    Steak was very tough. Staff did not ask how our meal was. Great outlook. I am sure chef is not trying the meat they buy, as he would have sent back. Asked for Med/rare, received med. I was going to send back, but we waited so long i at it. Not value for money

    Great hotel great service but I I don't think I will organise a group lunch there again. Had the worst time finding a park drove around for 20 min as there is only about 6 dedicated parks everything around is permit or right out front is 15 min.If I didn't have large group who walked for miles to get there I would have left.

    Had for special occasion reserved for 4 pers. Had to sit on long table for 16 pers. Place was very quiet. Croquettes were not very nice. Main course plates were too full. Sweets were nice. Latte was very weak. It had been a long time ago that I was there. It used to be nicer to sit there and the food was nicer plated.

    The food is pretty average. My friend had to send back her chicken parmagiana because it was burnt. My Thai beef salad was fairly ordinary with beef which had been over cooked & probably prepared hours before and just re heated for the sake of a bag of salad mix tossed into the plate. The waiters are always trying to hurry you up & get you out of the food bistro as soon as possible. It's as if they hate their jobs, and aren't paid enough to work on a Saturday night. By contrast the band in the other area is great! They play some very upbeat music from various yester eras, 70's , 80's & some 90's for patrons who love to have a boogie after dinner on a Saturday night!
