Reviewed 14 March 2013

Food was awesome and I highly recommend the Waygu. Melts in your mouth. Also the deserts were to die for.

I would without doubt eat here again.

“So pleased with our choice...”
Reviewed 19 February 2013

We chose to celebrate my 50th birthday at Lamaro's a couple of weeks back and were so pleased we made this choice. We wanted a fairly small, intimate dinner so booked the Wine Room which held our 23 guests comfortably. Although we come from Melbourne originally we live in Sydney now so needed to make all the arrangements remotely and just trust it would be ok on the night. However, having been to Lamaro's previously I wasn't worried and had no need to be as the room was perfect and only required us to provide our own flowers to add a personal touch otherwise we were more than happy with the room as it was. The staff were fantastic, particularly the person assigned to look after us on the night whose name I never got I'm afraid but would like to thank her for her attention and service. She looked after everyone so well! The food was amazing with all our guests commenting on the menu choices and standard. The staff were also happy to accommodate our requirement of pre dinner drinks served in a roped off area of the bar before we sat down for dinner. Basically nothing was too much trouble either during the booking/preparation stage or during the night itself. Thanks to all - I will definitely be back for my 60th!

“A great venue”
Reviewed 7 February 2013

This is Melbourne's best "gastro pub" , 5 star food, extensive wine list, great atmosphere and friendly owners & staff.. A bit of an institution that has stood the test of time. Can be a bit of a pick up joint on Friday nights but not intrusive.. A bit of a menu change soon would be good though guys.

“3.5 Pleasant pub with above avearge food”
Reviewed 24 January 2013

Newly arrived to South Melbourne we are tasting our way around the suburb. We'd been to Lamaro's some years ago so we decided to revisit.

Pleasant ambience and above average food for a pub - although this is swank South Melb.

The menu is diverse but small, as you'd expect for a local pub with a more than adequate wine list - running to 20+ pages!

The zucchini flowers for entre were nothing startling - at only two even though an entree perhaps three would have been more pleasing; whereas the carpaccio was really quite delicious.

The King George as a main was again on the small side given the price ($33) but accompanied by a largish serve of fries. My dining partner said the duck was suburb. We drank sparkling mineral water and a bottle of 2008 Heritage Cabernet Sauvignon which was most pleasing. We did have to inquire whether we had wine left in the bottle as we finished our meal - there was another two glasses (not an overly attentive waitress in a not busy room).
