Called into the bar for a drink before heading out for dinner elsewhere. Bar was quite busy so we waited patiently to be served, the bar staff member at our end of the bar repeatedly ignored us and served people who had arrived after us, when we complained she banged bottle openers and glasses around and continued to ignore us!...

I have been to chill several times in the past as I used to live in bell city. The restaurant used to command a high standard, in customer service, food quality and decor. But it's amazing how things can change in a couple of years. We came to chill as we wanted to take some good friends out for a... More

Ate here on a Monday night, with a smallish crowd in the place. The staff were wonderfully attentive without being in your face, meal prep time was good, and my steak was cooked how I asked for it which is great. If I'm back dow that way I will visit again. Great Job!

We had a big group and they fitted us in at late notice on a busy night. Staff were friendly and the restaurant was nice, although the menu was a little limited. My wife and I had Garlic bread starter and Atlantic Salmon and Pan Fried Barramundi mains which were great, but sadly the Baked Cheesecake and Chocolate Fondant desserts... More

Partner and I recently had the buffet breakfast here as it was part of a deal staying at the Mantra. Food was delicious! Great variety of different foods were served (hot food, small pastries, breads, cereals, fresh fruit & a variety of juices/beverages). Staff were very friendly & greeted us with smiles :) We'll be back again!

The food was very good, most of the service was good. But very unprofessional, staff standing around doing nothing, manager flirting with guests, multiple staff leaning up against the bar having a chat, manager walked straight past a guest waiting to be served while other staff were having a chat on the other side of the bar.

We have been eating at Chill for quite a few years now when we stay in Melbourne. The food is always perfect. The atmosphere is great. The menu has always been somewhat limited. However whatever is on it has always been very nice. Recently the menu was changed and has become even more limited so suggest you check it out... More
