A wonderful afternoon to catch up with old friends for the first time since Lockdown, the menu although restricted due to the times had a great variety and beautifully presented.

My only comment and it's not mentioned as a complaint is that we were not warned that the Fish of the Day a Grilled Whole John Dory was $80 !!!!!!

The wine list was interesting, to say the least, with excellent bottles of Riesling and Pino Grigio, the Prossecco by the glass, and bottled Chardonnay was below par compared to the high standards of this Pub.

The service was very bad. We had a 1.5h booking, they sat us 20 mins late we were told to sit and wait in a corner, no drinks were offered. They kicked us out 40 mins after being seated after pulling my wine glass out of my hand while there was still wine in it. My plate was taken 2 seconds after I had put the last mouthful of food in my mouth. It was overall very poor service.

I was really happy with Geta and her handling of the situation . It poured with rain and we had to get our food take away. I feel that our booking should if been changed due to the bad weather. The umbrellas outside were not enough to handle the deluge of water

Tried this Pub for the first time a week ago, and went back with my mother and sister yesterday, very impressed - really stylish surroundings, high quality and delicious food - reasonably priced and nice wine options.
We all enjoyed our meals - service was excellent - we'll be heading back again soon.

Perfect Friday afternoon spent at Mount Erica! The crew accommodated our group of 8 and dazzled us with amazing service, great line up of drinks and nibbles. The carpark conversion to an outdoor yard was 👌🏽👌🏽👌🏽

My husband and son ordered the rib eye steak. The steak was large but had a lot of fat and gristle. Was not worth the $49. The service was good as were the salads. The menus was reduced and the specials removed.

Staff were great. Food average.
Why is a Salad just a bit of lettuce? Couldn’t we get half a tomato and some cucumber?

Great to be back at an old favourite. But timing was not great as the place was full of noisy young people. Didn’t begrudge them having some post lockdown fun, but it was almost impossible for me and my friend to talk together and be heard.
The menu had not changed since pre lockdown.
Nice staff. Very concerned that I had eaten only half my meal, but only because it was a giant serve of roasted cauliflower.

Our family of 4 love coming to the Mt Erica for dinner.. menu is always great and accommodating for our kids (14 and 12). The only fault was that we were seated in a walkway on a high table, which due to COVID restrictions we understand .. otherwise it was great!

Wonderful to see him and have a terrific meal after 10 months.
Thank you to all your staff.

I keep going to the Mount Erica thinking it might be good - looking for something good - and yet, every time, there's just something missing... it feels a bit formulaic. The food can be good in parts, but never great... the service can be a bit hesitant, off-hand and nervy. I've never come away thinking "that was really nice". I've been going there on and off for 25 years and this latest incarnation, well, I'm giving up on it. Comparing what it reputedly is with my actual experiences there, in a word: overrated.

The Mount Erica has emerged from Lockdown, offering the good people of Prahran East Village an irresistible melange of delicious food, enthusiastic service, pleasing aesthetics and an overall very satisfying experience.

It was possibly a limited menu post-COVID, but I still expected more flavour. I also expected the manager who greeted guests to be more friendly and helpful. Overall an acceptable experience.

Had a reservation for 7pm and was left to wait until 7:30 with no communication from staff - not even to say sorry we are running late or to ask if we wanted drinks. When we tried to raise a waiters attention they ignored us and in one instance when we asked how much longer our table would be the man condescendingly replied 'I can't give an exact time'. As soon as we finished eating we were given the cheque immediately and asked to leave even though we hadn't even finished our drinks and had been seated for less than an hour. Very poor service and rude staff.
