    Great restaurant run by the students at Vic Uni Footscray. All well presented and friendly. It is a teaching venue and good to see the students being shown "on the job" in a real life situation. We all had a variety of meals and good wine . 6 on a round table and all getting older but the background noise was minimal and all could hear the conversation at the table - so that was great. One diabetic diner i our group and with adequate notice they were able to accommodate that with low carb /low sugar meal and dessert which was very much appreciated
