Perfect spot for panoramic views of people watching from all directions. Guests were allowed to smoke out the front of the restaurant so we chose a spot away from the smoke but we were asked to move because the spot we sat in was for outside non smoking diners but there was no spot for outside non smoking drinkers.

The cappuccino was absolutely aweful. Drinkable but definitely not worth paying for. The waitresses were friendly and the location is nice. I did NOT try the food. But for coffee there is much better options.

I was having a family diner in Arintji and I enjoined it very mach. Each dish which I ordered was exceptional. They make their own house made cured salmon, which is the best I have ever tried.

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
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 of Berlin in the street art, a touch of Paris in the umbrella-shaded cafes and, reminiscent of Rome, eateries tucked away in the most unlikely of places. Perhaps you might want a break and cross the Yarra River to Southbank - walk along the promenade, bask in the sun at a waterside bar and decide whether to go to the nearby casino or book a ticket at the Melbourne theatre company.
