Just what the city needs: a smart eating place that opens for breakfast, morphs into lunch, segues into afternoon drinks, then dinner and finishes as somewhere easy at the end of the evening for an aperitif. Melbourne's Terra Rossa restaurant takes over an entire building that fits snugly between two laneways off Flinders Lane.

On Flinders Lane between Exhibition and Russell Streets. Ten minute walk from Flinders Street Station.

Terra Rossa features several distinct areas that make it perfect for versatile dining. The historic building, formerly housing Victoria’s Swiss Club, is now a stylish and modern space that is great for a leisurely breakfast or mid-week lunch. The charming décor from the brick-laced walls and mahogany furnishings to the chesterfield couches imbue the space with a sense of historicity, while the oversized portraiture and eclectic light-fittings hone into the eateries contemporary aesthetic.

The extensive menu also makes Terra Rossa an excellent evening option, whether it’s for pre-theatre dinner or late night supper. The menu offers a well-rounded selection of pizza and pasta, as well as tasty tapas items such as tender lamb anticucho with tangy chimichuri, or an aromatic vegetarian dish of sauteed mushrooms with feta, rosemary, roasted garlic and balsamic. Main dishes combine bold flavours to fashion original dishes of duck and portobello mushroom tortellini with thyme, walnut and nut brown butter to the likes of salmon, quinoa and fennel salad with sauce vierge. The wine list features a good selection of Australian drops and cheeky cocktails are a house specialty.

Terra Rossa is ideal for functions ranging from corporate conferences to weddings, birthdays, and cocktail parties. Three flexible menus have been designed for sit down celebrations with tapas style selections on offer. Beverage packages are also available for larger groups.
