Melbourne Restaurant Guide


Melbourne, the city of art and culture, is a little bit of Europe in the heart of Victoria. With such a multicultural population, the cuisines here come from around the globe. Melbourne diners are known for their loyalty, whether that be to small cafés or award-winning restaurants. The chilly town is also known for its cosy wine bars that often stock drops from the nearby wine regions and cider bars are popular in the warmer months. A strong coffee culture has seen the hidden laneways blossom with cute and eclectic cafés where you can hide away from the world. Melbourne’s Lonsdale Street is known as the Greek-restaurant precinct of mouth-watering delights. The beautiful coastline and Yarra River make for spectacular waterfront restaurants that each boast thier own shimmering views of the water.
