While food was quite delicious and slightly Peruvian the staff at the bar were completely inappropriate, pouring wine from one bottle to another, cleaning and soaping the area while we ate and used inappropriate language - appalling!. They have lot to learn unfortunately.

We enjoyed the tasting dishes, $65 per person. Fabulous food and plenty of it, and lots of different dishes. The Waiter explained every dish as it was brought to the table. There were seven of us and we all agreed we will go back again....More

Food here was fresh and well prepared. Environment is lively and crowded but service is good and staff are attentive. Food was not cheap but fair for the area and the quality served. The chicken is recommended.

This was a real find!! While a bit on the expensive side, it’s certainly worth it. Staff were friendly and knowledgeable about the cuisine. They made suggestions and how many dishes would be appropriate for our party of five. The menu is divided into “individuale”...More

Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways
tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary
feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the
city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques,
throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You
never quite know what you’ll find around the next
corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and
even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air
