    I had a birthday dinner for 10 people. We had a set menu. The food was fabulous! We started with pickled vegetables and gorgeous cured meat with freshly made bread. The next course was anchovy toasts that melted in your mouth. We then had a lovely salmon dish that was jaw droppingly good. Next they brought out the meat dish, beautifully prepared with the potatoes perfectly cooked and salad. We ended the night with goats cheese mouse with figs. Perfect evening !Everyone was impressed and wanting to go back again soon. The service was impeccable, they could not have been any friendlier or helpful. Thank you for making it a perfect birthday dinner.

    We love Spencleys and come whenever visiting from Sydney. Lovely, cosy, laid back yet stylishly Melbourne. The food is always delicious, wonderful produce and flavours and perfect for two to share, or for bigger group. Wine list excellent. In summer, often have Pizza from Next door section, which are always delicious . Great service, no wonder popular with locals. We will be back!
