Australian | Melbourne CBD, Inner City

Great atmosphere, good food and really solid wine list. It wasn't very busy so was expecting slightly more attentive service as we had to wait 10 mins for second bottle of wine. Disappointing also that no Low Carb beers offered such as Pure Blonde as I live by a low carb diet, but do enjoy a few cold beers, particularly at lunchtime. This alone may well stop me returning, however love the vibe and food so will recommend to anyone. More

Modern Australian | Melbourne CBD, Inner City

Needed a restaurant to take Dad to and could not have chosen better! Meat was amazing and the whole Viking theme from the “skôl” mead shot at the start of the meal to choosing your own knife to eat with was enjoyable from start to finish. The two Scottish lads who served us throughout the night were hospitable, friendly and great representatives of the restaurant. The only slight slight point would be that the apple crumble waffle had fairly large chunks of sugar on the top that dad didn’t like as much, but that was a very tiny part of an almost perfect meal! Amazing. More

The food was absolutely divine! Lots of small tastes and bites, but left feeling incredibly full and satisfied. The service was the best I have ever experienced. They are incredibly knowledgeable and I was confident in leaving decisions up to them. Yes, it is pricey, but well worth it for a very special occasion More

Italian | Melbourne CBD, Inner City

From the moment we entered we were treated with the utmost courtesy. The staff were super attentive and the way they serve each course was the best we've experienced. The wine list catered for every taste and the sommelier knew his stuff. There was one small period where we waited to be asked for a drink and ended asking the wait staff, but it was only a blemish when compared to the rest of the service. The food was exceptional. The pasta was melt in your mouth. The venison was tender and tasty. More

Turkish | South Yarra, Inner East

We had a great night at Yagiz on Monday night. We were a party of three and decided to go for the set menu. It was fabulous. Quite a lot of food but SO delicious. Each course was an excellent individual experience. And we had a magnificent bottle of Turkish red wine, Pinot style. The architecture and decor is beautiful. Understated with a great eye for detail. I will definitely be going back and recommending it to friends. The homemade bread was so good, I bought a loaf to take home! More
