Contemporary American
The aim of our food is to showcase the amazing produce to be had within a 200 km radius of Melbourne. Taking in the Otway’s, Gippsland, and the Peninsula. Whole carcass usage looks at both our primary cuts such as fillet, sirloin, rump and T-bone as well a secondary cuts and offal. A Mornington Peninsula based produce supplier allows us to change quickly with the seasons to present to you a balanced menu. Dry aging is a technique we use at The Breslin which allows the meat to break down with natural enzymes and removes water content from the cut. This technique presents as a very tender piece of meat with good gamey flavours.

We enjoyed a lovely family meal as part of our Saturday out in the city. Our daughter devoured the tasty ribs on the kids menu while my husband and I enjoyed wagu beef burgers with truffle mayo. The service was excellent and the place is stylish and clean yet warm and inviting. We have dined here before and been impressed. We will return! Thanks for having us.

The meat platter comes with sauces already on the meat, would have preferred it served separately.

Both the service and food were exceptional! I had the Calamari entre, Rib-eye steak for main and the chocolate brownie for dessert and was able to pair each course with lovely wines from an extensive selection. My wait staff were very attentive and always on hand when needed. I would highly recommend anyone looking for a great food experience to visit.

I had dinner at The Breslin with my husband. We really enjoyed the tapas selection and the size of the dishes. Food was really delicious and so fresh. After 5 different tapas we tried the chocolate cake desert, we were expecting something ordinary however we were amazed by the dish composition and taste. We would definitely recommend this gem!

Food was excellent. Lots of choice on the $25 lunch special. Would have liked to have been asked if we wanted anything else as we sat for an hour after our meal with our tap water glasses.

Beef wellington was extremely poor, beef quality is bad, with only $50 for two small pieces (3 bites max). Pork ribs are cold and very sour, and without lots of meat to eat.

Tried at least 3 times for the bill, but staff was just chatting around. Didnt see us :)

Hi, not for distribution, but I previously dined here several times and it was great, so ewas keen to get back, but this week paid and only realised when back at office I'd been charged extra - this since fully sorted with a credit, but messy - particularly now with C19 lock-down :(

The food was amazing but the customer service was not.
William who was serving us was absolutely amazing and kind.
But the manager on duty, however, was the worst customer service I had ever received. It was a cold night.
I made a booking for 2 and arrived on time. The manager at the time gave us a sit outside right near the entrance with not a single heater working or are in sight.
As we sit in our designated seat given, we overheard every other customers that walked in , had an option whether they would like to sit outside or inside whether they had booking or no booking. They got walked to their tables whereas I had booked 2 weeks in advance and had no customer service whatsoever.
I am not happy with the experience. Whether the food was amazing or not, customer service was horrible.
Why didn’t we get an option as to whether we could sit inside or outside? We weren’t even allowed to move seats and was told we “should” of turned on the heater by ourselves!

Good venue and great staff. The steak was underwhelming, especially for the price. The shank pie was excellent. More kids options would be good.

Bad service. The waitress poured water on my dress, and she didn’t apologise or said anything, she just walked away. The dishes were average and dont deserve the price at all. The worst one is the beef Wellington, which I had the most expectation on. The taste of each ingredients are separate.

The food here is just wow! Delicious and affordable.. highly recommend the spiced calamari! If it was on offer as a main I would have ordered two of them.

Service was slow to take orders and once we finished our round of drinks no one came to offer another, probably need to work on that as we went to a place the following night where we were constantly offered refills or another round and was much better :)

We went for a family dinner to celebrate a 21st birthday. Told the service staff this but they didn't seem to care. No happy Birthday acknowledgement and certainly nothing special for the occasion offered by the restaurant. We had to call for attention when we wanted to order extra drinks - no one really bothered to check in with us. It was disappointing overall to be treated this way.
