    Pre-theatre dinner, Time Out cafe never disappoints, Food is excellent value and good selection for anyone with dietary requirements. Staff are friendly and certainly can speed things up if there is a deadline of a show to get to. 100% would recommend

    We arrived and was jammed into a very small table for 3 people. We looked at the menu and immediately just left. None of the food is interesting and there is no range.

    Food was delicious and served super quick. We were seated outside despite requesting inside when booking and inside had barely anyone seated in there which was disappointing. For June in Melbourne to have dinner outside AND for there to only be heaters right near the entrance…it was freezing and detracted massively. Drink service was also slow, they seemed to have ample staff but our first drinks arrived after our food!

    Food and service was very good. Drinks were a bit slow coming. Food was tasty. One downside, we object to paying a 10% weekend surcharge for staff. Maybe think twice about coming into Melbourne again as our local restaurants do not charge this fee.

    The lamb on the pizza tasted stewed, we thought it would be like Greek shaved lamb. The Thai chicken salad was ok. We were impressed with the 10% surcharge and feel that the waitress should have mentioned it as we were shown to our seat.

    The staff are lovely, the venue is right in the centre of the CBD which is great. The portion size of my meal was very average, and for the price i paid, i wasn’t impressed. I finished my meal and i was still hungry. My meal was delicious and my mother enjoyed hers, it was just a bit small. The restaurant also doesn’t have garlic bread or any sweet wine options, which was a let down considering they have a range of pizzas on the menu. Overall 6/10.

    Great venue - the food was really enjoyable and the food and drinks came out very quickly which was great, the only downfall was they didn't have side sauces (gravy,mushroom sauce) apart from that 5/5

    Visiting from interstate. Nice place but so expensive for what we had. Eggs on toast are no better than anywhere else but cost a fortune when you want anything else with them. For example add some bacon $5, add some mushrooms $5, add anything $5 or $10. By the time you go to pay, a bill for 2 has rocketed to $70 ($140 for four of us)…for a very average breakfast. Would have been different if the food was special but it wasn’t. Learned a lesson… won’t go again.

    Time Out is out favorite spot to eat when come in from the Mornington Peninsula, always fanatic food and drinks, great atmosphere, central meeting point for meeting family and friends, before going to football, concerts or shows or even just to stroll through Melbourne CBD Keep it up Time Out and we will keep coming and if you haven't notice it yet our group is getting bigger each time two tables this time . . . .

    Great spot near Flinders Street Station, not too crowded and good food, little on the pricey side but overall good quality food. Service was a little slow but they were very crowded. We had the fish and chips at $32, pretty good, warm Thai chicken salad at $27 and a sandwich at $18 with desert, coffees and three drinks.

    A wonderful night in a busy and happening restaurant. First waitress took a blurry photo of us, but the second nailed it! :-) So just a suggestion for a skill training... Food was fabulous and prompt. Limited but good wine list. Fun cocktails... No vegan choices for family, but a great night out.

    Conveniently located for dinner before attending the Comedy Festival at the Forum. We booked outdoors as it was a warm night and it has a great atmosphere with all the city lights. Menu is quite basic but food was delicious. Staff are super responsive even when the place was nearly full. A separate line for pre-bookings would’ve saved us queuing behind all the walk-ins. Would definitely go again.
