Couldn't have been better attended for our meal before a show at the Arts Centre at this strategically placed venue with a great city view. Mushroom soup with egg and truffle oil was a good start to the meal with adequate portions of bread. We tried the pasta with venison ragu which was a very rich flavoured dish followed by the panatello with hazelnut and rhubarb ( simply delicious) The food was delivered so efficiently we had plenty of time to get to our show. Top meal! We will be back.

We had lunch at the Trocadero on Sunday before going to a show at the Arts Centre. On arrival we were asked if we needed to be out by a certain time. We had plenty of time to enjoy a leisurely lunch and the service matched it perfectly. The staff were all attentive without being intrusive and knowledgeable about the food and wines. My artichoke veloute entree ($26) was a lovely creamy soup with some scallops and artichoke petals - a delightful blend of flavours while the scotch fillet main ($38) was cooked to perfection as were the potatoes sprinkled with freshly grated parmesan cheese ($11) and the iceberg, pickled red onion and avocado salad ($9) side dishes. My wife was delighted with her two entrees of the crab roll ($11) (which looked almost a full meal in itself) and the tuna tartare ($22). The list of wines by the glass ($9-13) provided a list of very good choices, local, Australian and international. Although full and busy the noise level was comfortable and the views of the city superb.
We will certainly dine there again when we're going to anything at the Arts Centre or NGV and would unreservedly recommend it to friends.

very convenient to the Arts Centre for a pre theatre dinner as it is actually connected to the Arts Centre and caters for theatre patrons. Staff were aware of time constraints, no delays in serving meals nor was it rushed. Vegetarian meal was very good although limited for choice and fish was fresh and well cooked. Sweets provided ample choice including a cheese platter. About $70 a head for main course and sweet. Would go there again for any per theatre dinner at the Arts Centre.

A great place to unwind a busy day at work, the friendly bar service is a plus. It is a great place that you can catch up with friends, enjoy the Melbourne "busy-ness" of people watching, savour the shared plates, drink good cocktails and have a conversation without having to raise your voice. A Pleasant venue!
