Popular place to sit out in Hardware Lane and eat. We all had steaks of different cuts and ages. They were the best we ate while in Australia. Service was friendly and drinks reasonable. If you want a steak try this place.

Good customer service, staff were very friendly and helpful. The Chicken Mushroom pasta was to die for, would recommend ordering. Would come back again.

Great food and hospitality by Kosta. Accidentally found the place walking down hardware lane, went back the next day and Kosta remembered us and our order. Totally recommend the place.

With many to choose from on Hardware Lane, this restaurant is a standout. They use fresh, quality ingredients and their European flair brought back fond memories of our travels in France.

Friendly atmosphere, the food was amazing. The beef was melting in the mouth and the sticky date pudding was a wonder. Got me reconciled with puddings.

We loved our dinner so much last night that we returned again for an encore. Our experience was even more delightful because of Kosta's charming and attentive service upon our arrival. We will be back for Act III tomorrow before we head off to Sydney....More

We were with a daughter of 6 years old. There is a children menu in the restaurant and the staff is very attentive. We were sitting outside, enjoying the live jazz music. The street is very nice as well with a lot of other restaurants...More

Central Business District
Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways
tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary
feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the
city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques,
throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You
never quite know what you’ll find around the next
corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and
even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air
