Restaurants

Dining out in this foodie town is serious – and seriously fun. Melbourne prides itself on its food and the city's dizzying array of dining options is testimony to its culinary reputation. Book ahead for award-winning fine-dining restaurants, queue up for iconic cheap eats, explore famous eat streets or track down the city's best food trucks. Whatever you do, come to town with an appetite.

A table at Melbourne's most notable restaurants is a treat worth travelling for. Consider critically acclaimed Attica, Flower Drum or Vue de Monde. Grab a spot at the bar for award winning food at Embla, or one of dining spots listed in The Age Good Food or Australian Gourmet Traveller Restaurant Guide.

Explore Melbourne's culinary precincts. Go for Italian in Lygon Street, Carlton, Vietnamese in Victoria Street, Richmond, and Lebanese in Sydney Road, Brunswick. Find the best-dumplings in CBD's Chinatown, and be spoilt for choice in Footscray's Vietnamese and African restaurants.

Check out Sunday lunch specials at big-name restaurants or let your good intentions go in a beer garden with gourmet fare.
