Melbourne is known for its well-hidden gems, and Markov Place, a dark European-style restaurant and bar is certainly one worth seeking out. Located near Carlton's Cinema Nova, this is the perfect place for a post-movie meal, with local boutique beer and ciders on tap and pub-style classic dishes, like chicken wings or fried prawns to nibble on. More substantial burgers and fish and chips are available too.

On Carlton's back streets.

PROFILED BY DEGROOTS MEDIA
It is with a true feeling of pleasure that you descend the stairs into Markov Place – yet there is also a sense of discovering a concealed treasure, one you would quite like to keep for yourself. Enter through the wine shop off the main street or via the tiny lane that bears its name, and step into a converted warehouse space with the requisite high ceilings and exposed beams. Despite this, Markov Place is intimate, with a dark, chocolatey decor, moody lighting and immense Spanish prints adorning the walls. It’s a sophisticated, yet welcoming, space to enjoy a relaxing drink and snack at the bar or to settle in for the long haul on comfy booth seating.

The Spanish-influenced menu changes on a regular basis, but seafood tends to be the star – think oysters with a shot of gazpacho and vodka, seafood paella and a beautifully presented seafood tapas board complete with anchovies nestled in tiny leaves of radicchio. The menu is flexible, so you can choose the traditional three-course route or opt to share and select several smaller items such as zucchini flower and goats cheese fritters or a salad of witlof, figs, walnuts and Roquefort. The cheese board is particularly good value – a more than generous wedge of excellent cheese, plenty of crackers, fruit and quince paste definitely necessitates the drinking of a couple of decent glasses of wine. The staff are friendly and helpful, the food is good and the prices are reasonable. Markov Place is not just a bar, nor is it a dedicated restaurant, but it sure is a relaxed, comfortable place to spend a good part of the evening.
