We had a brilliant lunch here for $19 - 2 courses and drink very good value in the city if you can stand all the poker machines. As we are not gamblers we didn't really get into whole thing.

“Kids run Amok”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 July 2014

In Melbourne to attend Crown Cinema Complex with young family, Wed 2 July,
I was astounded to find ourselves in the middle of some sort of McDonald's sponsored game of hide and seek, 4-5 groups of 12-15 teenagers running through cinema/eatery area screaming, pushing past people traveling on escalators looking for hidden clues.

I wonder who would be answering the questions had a mother with child in pram or elderly Grand Mother hit their head on the ground had one of these Kids pushed a little harder.

“Watch society slip away and people lose their shirts”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 July 2014

Sure you feel like you are in Vegas with all the restaurants, shops, tables and poker machines but don't become a regular there is so much better things to do and see in Melbourne.

Don't go on pension day as you will have to fight for the 1 cent machines, also please don't follow bad behaviour set by other gambling addicts and leave you kids in the car park. Don't laugh this happens enough to be concerned about the future of society.

If you like to gamble your salary away I suggest the high risk low intelligence games "Casino War" that you basically pick a card and you win if you beat the dealer. It's a great way to quickly burn through several hundred dollars. If you lose all your money don't worry there are plenty of ATMs in the complex that take may still take credit cards so you can get cash advances even if you are broke.

So again have a quick look sure but get out and explore the best that Melbourne has to offer, there is so much more to Melbourne than a casino....

“Lives up to reputation!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 June 2014

This was certainly worth a visit, if for no other reason than seeing how a classey Casino works; the complex not only has its 'gambling dens', but plenty of high class shopping and eateries catering for every taste and price.
The place was clean, beautifully presented and the staff were really 'service focused'.
Day one was a look around, however had the opportunity of attending a luncheon later the same week; the food was excellent and service, again could not be faulted with the venue second to none! The added bonus been served by a stunning young lady, Elizabeth; well worth the trip to meet her alone!
Anyway, recommended for a visit, keeping in mind that it is what it is, a Casino where the house always wins....
