This is our go-to Saturday lunch pub and has become a weekly tradition.. The food is always lovely and served by friendly staff. The outdoor garden has great ambience, with ample heating during the winter months.

The chicken schnitzel is AMAZING !!

Arrived at 7:30pm was told I have no booking. Then they said they had a free table in front of the fire. Table was way to small. Had a drink and left went to the botanical hotel in South Yarra without a booking and was seated straight away. The fact no one could find a booking was the main issue. And no one really cared.

Food was great, service was terrible the wait staff were rude, I’ve not had dinner for a long time with such bad service. It was a shame because the actual food was fabulous. Will not be going back, has left a bad taste in my mouth.

Staff won’t write down your order and then forget drinks and food. Never come to check if you need anything else to order. Wasn’t busy at the time.

The music in the dining area was so loud we couldn't talk. Whilst the food is nice, somewhat over priced the service was appalling. My glass of prosecco came in a wine glass and was flat. The waitress refused to give me a champagne glass for the drink. Why?
The other waiting staff were aggressive. Small things like receiving the salt and pepper at the end of the meal added to a very unpleasant dining experience. Too many other place in Melbourne to visit to even think about going back.

Love the venue, food & service which is why we keep coming back!
Just an FYI that the service was all over the show on Sunday. We were given the wrong food and drinks several times. Saw our meals taken to the wrong tables a few times as well before they were returned to the kitchen and then brought back to us a while later - cold, unfortunately. We were then given the wrong bill 4-5 times and after telling the wait staff it was still incorrect and providing our order details twice more, it was still incorrect. We ended up settling for the 5th attempt (almost close) and paying the bill. During this process we dealt with 3 different wait staff, with one of them speaking to us like it was our fault, and she didn't take all the orders. Hopefully things get better this week for everyone :) Thanks Team

Our lunch lasted five hours so it must have been good - and it was. Great atmosphere, great food and great open fire. The wine list was extensive, as was the range of bets. Go there.

Food was great, and the guy who sat us. But service went downhill, only one drinks order taken the whole time, lots of staff seemed to be knocking around and wasnt very busy in dining area, but more interested in chatting with each other , sat with empty plates in front of us for ages service finished once food order was taken.

Great place to enjoy a get together with friends and or family. Service was very good although found the staff didn’t smile, maybe too busy. It had a real vibe that was good to in but, it did become hard to converse because it became a little too ‘energetic’ That wouldn’t stop me going back or recommending to others.

I'd written off this place when I went there post lockdown in November - but the two times I've been there this year I must say, it has been very nice. Food is nice and simple and tasty... schnitzel with coleslaw and a side of mash and gravy, very comforting. And the service appears to have picked up somewhat too. I've changed my mind about the place ... it's back on my list.

think it a bit stingy not offerring bread in the restaurant. when you spend 100 on two people surely two slices of baguette is not too much to ask. With nothing to munch on with your cocktail before mains it makes you think of going elsewhere

answer below is no longer sure. Always used to but uncertain now

Went for $20 steak night.
Great value although steak was a little cold.
Waitress must have been new. I didn’t want bearnaise sauce or side veggie but asked for a few slices of raw onion instead. She didn’t think that could be done. It could, and it was!
I also politely pointed out that my fork was dirty, something caked on by dishwasher probably. She took it off me & flounced off! Clearly customer service is not her forte! I don’t suppose she’ll be there long.
Overall though it was very good value. Just got a bit noisy when two large groups came in towards the end.
I’d definitely recommend Mt Erica.
I’ve been there many times before & will definitely be returning.
