My son and I went here based on my fond memories of amazing steaks. Well yes it is a little expensive and a lot of meat but our side salad was very fresh and the tomatoes lovely and tasty. The 5 courses keep you occupied...More

Vlado's is a Melbourne institution, and has been around for over 40 years. If you do not love meat, this is not for you. However, despite the fact that I do love meat, dare I say that the concept needs some re-jigging. Because something has...More

Absolutely cooked to perfection meats. The eye fillet was delicious. Great service too. Still the warm and friendly atmosphere of days gone by. I have been to Vlado's number of times, some 14-15 years and always raved (to friends and family) about Vlado's mixed grills....More

Yeah no. If you're not a real meat lover, this place isn't for you. Last time we went, ( and this was a few years back- I can't select an older date on here) there were no prices. I'm pretty sure they charged us what...More

Is the very best steak experience in the whole of Australia 🇦🇺 Cannot be beaten. Service is great as well. Bit pricey but you do get what you pay for here.

The 3rd time here in the past decade. Same old place, same waiters, same quality steak, not the feeling though. The first time at Vlados, we enjoyed but not my boy. This time, our appetite has reduced due to our age but the boy conquered...More

This place came strongly recommended by my colleagues so we tried it out expecting heaven, but left disappointed. I think it's over-hyped. Dishes of meat upon meat upon meat is served, and whilst it tastes very fine and fresh, for the price it's not worth...More

We stumbled in through the yellow door not knowing what was awaiting us. Within seconds, a sausage arrived on our plates and the aroma filled our senses. I could tell by the anemic salad that this was going to be a seriously meaty encounter and...More

It is a small, family like atmosphere. There is just one set menu of meat and meat and meat so no need to chose. Entrée: Beef sausage. Appetisers: assorted dish of mini burger, liver, mini steak. Main: porterhouse or rump or eye fillet with an...More
