I had the pleasure of dining at the Melbourne Restaurant, the signature Restaurant at the deluxe Langham Hotel, Southbank, Melbourne on the weekend. There were twenty three of us, and we were celebrating a very special 80th birthday, and had wanted a restaurant that would give us all a wonderful experience for such a special milestone.
The Melbourne Restaurant did just that. Firstly the decor and general surrounds are opulent and gracious all at once! A sense of anticipation grows as you walk up the carpeted marble stairs to the entrance .... once seated there is such a choice of Buffet dishes I would need to write a small novel!
Wonderful presentation, choices from Indian, Chinese, Seafood, Roasts with Yorkshire Pudding
Oysters, platters of smoked salmon, just everything possible!
Sweets? Dont get me started here .... think of everything and then think some more, especially a chocolate fountain!!!
I would also especially like to single out our waiter for the event - Sean - who really did a fantastic job looking after us. Always there when we needed something, quietly and unobtrusively refolding our napkins when we were up finding new treats to bring back to the table (and there were a lot of treats I can tell you!) Ensuring our glasses were always full, and taking care of every little detail. Thanks Sean, you did a great job.
Sometimes you just need a really specially place, for really special event, and I can certainly suggest the Melba.
