Our restaurant has been a long-time favourite with the locals of Melbourne’s Casey region and is well-known for its relaxed atmosphere, modern cuisine, signature cocktails and excellent coffee.

Having first opened its doors to customers in early 2006, Switch Lifestyle has recently undergone a major renovation to reflect our new approach to modern dining and healthy lifestyle.

We had our anniversary dinner at Switch and we had a great experience. Once the wait staff were aware of an allergy, they went out of their way to make sure everything we ordered was free of that allergen. The staff were friendly and professional and we can't thank them enough for making our evening so enjoyable. We tried to leave a tip, but unfortunately their new POS system didn't include a tip option and we had no cash on us. We will be back. Oh, and I highly recommend the tempura broccoli. It's worth a visit for that alone!

Table service very poor. Seems they never have enough staff to ensure prompt table service and quick preparation of drinks.

So impressed with Switch Lifestyle! The staff were amazing- very attentive, friendly and thorough. A big bonus is that the food came out quickly- a Godsend when dining with the kids!, and the quality was AMAZING! I had the crispy chicken salad, and it was to die for- such clever use of ingredients, flavoursome, and the chicken was perfectly cooked. Also, the kids menu is refreshing and extensive- no boring nuggets and chips here! Some of the offerings were mac and cheese bites, chicken and bacon risotto etc. The kids meals are generously portioned, and come with a free drink and ice creams- only $15! Also, the seating is spacious and set out to allow for privacy- a mixture of booths and tables. Well done guys :).

After having multiple bad experiences at Switch we thought we would give it another go. After 2 years maybe it had improved. It hadn’t. It was the last night we were planning to have out before our baby (I’m 37 weeks pregnant) and it was terrible. I can’t really give a fair rating on the food cause it never arrived! When we booked for 8pm it said we only had the booking for an hour so we booked a movie straight after. Arrived and ordered within 5 minutes and our drinks arrived promptly but that was it. We then proceeded to be ignored for the next 55 minutes. We had decided we would mention our food when someone came over to ask if we wanted more drinks but that didn’t happen either. We would have been fairly understanding if there was a long wait between our entree and our main but our entree didn’t even arrive and that was only dips. So at 9pm we got up and went to the register. The waitress seemed more concerned with telling the kitchen not to bother preparing our food. The gent at the register at least apologised and told us not to worry about paying for the drinks we had. So at 37 weeks pregnant I had to go the night without any dinner. To say I was ‘hangry’ is a total understatement. We will never give Switch a third chance, that is for sure!!

I love Switch. Food and service always great. Music definitely too loud. Very difficult to chat with friends. We were all yelling and losing our voices by the end. Take the music down a couple notches and things would be perfect.

Service was very good, nice ambience and easy place to chill.
I got steak which was cooked very well and tasted good but for the price it was way to small, I could've eaten 4 of them. Onion rings didnt taste like anything just batter, asparagus was good. I also got the gnocchi on the side to. And to be honest being italian I know what good gnocchi is. But this just wasn't it at all. It was like fried potato balls. It tasted like a ball of cheese covered in garlic. Was very dissatisfied with then and extremely disappointed. Otherwise it was a good experience. My waiter was very lovely.

I've been to switch twice, and enjoyed it both times. My meal was a little salty (I had the lemon chicken with rice) but my friends mushroom risotto was amazing. The cocktails are really great, and for me, it's just the energy and atmosphere that I really enjoy. Service is good as well, quite laid-back and chill but there when you need it.

Food was average. I had the chicken salad which was well over cooked.
Staff who waited the tables were friendly. When we went to pay we were told there was no splitting of the bill by item and we should have read that at the bottom of the menu in tiny letters.
Then she decided to ‘do us a favour’ and let us split it down the middle.

Service wasn’t very friendly or what we have experienced in the past. Felt uncomfortable when the waitresses were standing around talking. The meals were average. The cocktail I usually purchase tasted like soap. When I tried to ask about it, I got ignored. Was our first time back, we usually love coming to this restaurant but was very disappointed.

We all had the salt and pepper calamari and the main size was very small and it always use to come with coleslaw and a garlic aioli but instead this time came with just rocket and a very tart sauce which wasn't very nice. The NZ lady who served us was awesome and lovely to talk to

The new menu has so many delicious options that it was hard to choose.
The atmosphere was so nice and you could really tell the staff and patrons were genuinely happy to be eating out and working again.
Can't wait to go back.
