Dinner by Heston Blumenthal, Southbank

Dinner by Heston Blumenthal, Southbank

The brand of Heston conjures up visions of amazement, mystery and admiration. It’s safe to say we had all those qualities in droves over our time at Dinner by Heston. Nothing short of extraordinary and a perfect way to see out my final week in […]

Bistro Guillaume, Southbank

Bistro Guillaume, Southbank

My final work lunch of the 2016 year was at Bistro Guillaume, a handy spot with a vista including the ever tranquil Yarra River. We had a big group and a big appetite and both were taken care of over our experience. You can expect expensive, […]

Merrywell, Southbank

Merrywell, Southbank

My tram always goes past this place as well as myself when I am recovering from my gambling addiction. The windows of the Merrywell proclaim some burger award from some era so of course it’s going to get a look in. By the way, Downstairs […]

Mad Mex, Southbank

Mad Mex, Southbank

There’s more than a few Mad Mex(es?) around, and the one we visited on this occasion was in the DFO South Wharf complex. It was about the same as the other Mad Mexes I’ve been to around town, so above average franchise Mexican that gets […]

Munich Brauhaus, South Wharf

Munich Brauhaus, South Wharf

A friend and I stopped by the Munich Brauhaus for some snacks and drinks on a weekend afternoon. The design of the place is fantastic, it’s modelled after a Bavarian beer hall and is pretty huge in size, so perfect for a big group. Service […]

Melba, Southbank

Melba, Southbank

A throwback review of a special time in my eating history. Our work gave us allowance for each team to get a Christmas lunch or dinner and the three of us chose Melba. We had a fantastic evening of eating ’til we couldn’t, with an […]

Trampoline Gelato, Southbank

Trampoline Gelato, Southbank

It’s highly evident that Trampoline Gelato is built on a franchise chain model, you can tell from the product. The gelato tastes fine if not borderline commercial but some of the flavours are considerably more successful than others. Like kindergarten, not everyone can be a star and […]

Grill’d, Southbank

Grill’d, Southbank

The closest Grill’d to the Yarra River is over in the Southgate centre in Southbank, battling it out for yo’ food dollars against a tide of other food vendors. Setup isn’t quite as nice as a full store but staff are as chirpy as always. […]

The Boatbuilders Yard, Southbank

The Boatbuilders Yard, Southbank

Amazing location right by the water but the food offering was flat and the service from the staff was flatter. I caught up with a friend before he was about to jet off to London and went with the bacon and eggs on toast to […]
