This is the first cafe/restaurant you cone across having wandered through duty free and on first sight it looks inviting enough We checked it out and went on to look at other outlets but returned here and wish we hadn't bothered It wasn't a particularly busy early Monday morning as we sat down but waited over 10 minutes for a...

$12.40 for two regular coffees! This was ridiculously overpriced, not to mention the waitress spilling half of it before it arrived at the table. She did not bother to clean it up or offer a napkin to soak up the mess. Melbourne airport is largely under construction at the moment and there is limited choice as it is. This is... More

I was looking for a snack, light meal or something to pick up and eat on my way when I saw this place. I tried their Beef brisket sandwich in sourdough bread. It was quite nice. You do have to wait a while sometimes as there are quite a few people ordering sandwiches here (There's not much choice of things... More

There is not a lot of choice at the MEL International Airport at the moment and the only place to get a 'drink' was here. I am a regular at some of Melbourne's other MoVidas and never been disappointed but it seems it has not transitioned. Extraordinarily expensive and a silly ordering system with extra charges for credit card. I... More

...but REALLY expensive! We recently had a short layover en route from New Zealand and called in for a quick drink. AUD13.50 for a small glass of pretty ordinary Sauvignon Blanc. I realise airports are the last place to get a bargain, but this took the biscuit. (Actually I didn't have a biscuit as that would probably have been another... More

Well I didn't think we could have a dud meal in Melbourne, the big breakfast was just a non starter, you can do better than this being an international airport.

Stopped in more so just for a drink and somewhere to sit. We weren't sure whether it was table service or not but because they took so long we went to the bar, only to be told someone would be over. We had to wave somebody over even after this. After finally getting a drink, we wanted another one. Staff... More

Over priced, small portions, basic food. Management unwilling to offer reduced prices for simplified, basic meal requests e.g. removed ingredients. Surcharge for card payment as well!!! Arghh!!! Only Positive - Nice waitress. Best avoiding and eating at Hungry Jacks. Will businesses like these ever learn?

It's seriously hard to find anywhere at Melbourne international airport that is gluten free but this place seems to have quite a few reasonable options, However for kids that are coeliac it is a tad more challenging. Overall however I would recommend this place as the safer option compared to other establishments within the international terminal. For coeliac however it's... More

Serious waste of money(really), time and space. Really sad last meal in a city known for its amazing food. My partner was served a half a sandwich for 17$. AFTER she finished, I was served a my wings which were hot, crispy and moist(great) but were so boring with absolutely zero flavour( apart from the lemon wedge on the side).... More
