Looking for a European culinary hideaway in the heart of Richmond? Then step inside Saint Urban – a space handmade for locals and Melbournians alike.

Saint Urban was the Bishop of Langres in France in the 4th Century and was persecuted for his beliefs. He was protected by the vine-dressers in his parish, who hid him in their vineyards. He in turn, converted them to Christianity. Saint Urban is called upon to protect anyone in the wine industry against blight and alcoholism.

The suburban restaurant, which is part of the Punch Lane family, has quickly established itself as a jewel in Swan Street’s culinary crown.

Inspired by the quaint European buildings in France, Saint Urban is a local watering hole and meeting place, which brings people from all walks of like together to enjoy spectacular food and drinks at a great price.

Had the amazing “bottomless brunch” here on the weekend and it’s so good! Every course was tasty and came out to us quickly. Staff on hand to constantly top up drinks and we could not have been happier. We sat outside so street noise was a thing but lots of space indoors if you are looking for quiet. Recommend!

Found it nice but extremely expensive, over 40 dollars per person the cheaper set menu for 4 tapas with no drink (alcohol not included)

Saint Urban

I think you might be referring to the bottomless brunch which is $42.50pp (food only )5 smaller courses , leek and cheese croquette , open prawn Danish , baked eggs purgatory and sourdough roll , Piri Piri marinated quail Caesar salad finished with rum soaked shaved pineapple with coconut sorbet . For$65pp for 1.5 hrs which includes drinks of Aperol Spritz, Peroni Beers and French Rose. Glad you enjoyed the quality the ingredients and technique are defiantly on point .

Wonderful Lunch at Saint Urban. Last minute booking and we sat on the front verandah looking onto Swan Street. We had the set menu. Delicious offerings including baked eggs, prawns, quail Caesar, coconut gelato with carpaccio and mint which was the perfect dessert. Lunch includes Aperol Sprits and wine. We were looked after beautifully by St Urbans knowledgeable and charming staff.

The set menu of 2 courses for $65 was quite pricey for the size of the meals. Sides were definitely needed which pushes it up to around $90 per head before you add drinks. The dessert was delicious and the service from the staff was great. Each person that came to our table had the same friendly energy and gave us a very enjoyable experience. Will definitely be back.

Thank you for sharing and it is so good to hear you left well looked after as well as feeling positive vibes ( we defiantly all need these more than ever) I can assure you the the energy if sourcing , preparing and delivering the menu by the kitchen team has never been better which is reflected in the price . You must try the bottomless brunch on Saturday and Sunday for $65 per person :)

The service was very attentive and accommodating as someone who is gluten intolerant. However, we were disppointed with the outside covered seating as there was cold draught despite the heaters and the steak I ordered was unevely cooked which I commented on after receiving the bill.

Service was wonderful, and the entrees were delicious. However, the snapper Kyiv main was undercooked, we sent it back and the kitchen very kindly sent out a new plate, which was also undercooked, we are talking cold and raw in the middle. They were successful on a third attempt, but only after the Kyiv had been cut in half and cooked By which point in the interest that you had in the dish had well and truly vanished.
