My new husband and I celebrated our marriage with 30 guests in the upstairs function room at the Universal Restaurant yesterday. The whole experience was absolutely marvellous!
We booked on short notice as the original venue we had booked cancelled. With two weeks before our wedding, Danielle (the functions manager) accepted our booking and well and truly hit the ground running.
We were able to very quickly confirm menus (our guests dietary requirements were no problem at all) and the night before our wedding, we dropped our cake, table decs etc off to the restaurant.
When we arrived for our wedding lunch everything looked absolutely beautiful! Danielle and her team did an amazing job setting it all up. We had provided a seating plan and nothing was too much trouble to accommodate. I really can't sing the praises of Danielle and her team enough.
Of course, the main event of any restaurant is the food and I have to say, it was absolutely divine. We had a set menu of a gnocci or braised lamb for entrée and a chicken or steak dish for main (our wedding cake was served for dessert). The meals were sensational! Everyone commented on how lovely the meals were and also the size of the meals was terrific. There was definitely no one leaving hungry!
My husband and I had never eaten at Universal Restaurant before (we live in Bendigo and had decided to marry in Melbourne) but it will be certainly be a regular stop on our future visits to Melbourne from now on.
Thank you again to everyone at Universal Restaurant!
