Stuffed giraffes and ostriches are your restaurant companions as you dine at the plushly appointed Carlton Hotel in the centre of Melbourne’s CBD. The menu has a sprinkling of reliable pub-type fare but also some more interesting offerings.

PROFILED BY DE GROOTS MEDIA
Discretion may form the better part of valour, but this idiom plays no part in the surrounds of the Carlton Hotel. Once you’ve ascended the nondescript stairs, it’s plush, velvety and over the top. Stuffed animals, palm trees, dramatic wallpaper, objets d’art and velvet-covered furniture (including the plants!) form the opulent background to your dining experience. The menu has a sprinkling of reliable pub-type fare but also some more interesting offerings. Start with the lively flavours of the warm goat’s cheese, radicchio, tomato and apple salad, or chickpea and capsicum patties with lemon bean salad and harissa yoghurt.

Mains feature flavoursome couplings such as the lamb fillets with cracked wheat and eggplant relish and a cranberry and mint salad, grilled rockling with broccolini and avocado, lime and coriander salsa, or try grilled venison with celeriac puree, sauteed spinach and sour cherry glaze. Finish with a refreshing summer pudding or yoghurt pannacotta with rosewater, watermelon and mint. There is a separate dining room but food is available throughout the entire bar area. Check out the Monday specials where everything on the dining room menu is half price, or pop in on Tuesdays to take advantage of $12 schnitzel specials. The bar features plenty of tap and bottled beers, a short but flirty wine list, and they’ll even mix up a cocktail or several if you are tempted by their late licence.
