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.

Best restaurants
A table at Melbourne's most notable restaurants is well worth the wait. Consider critically acclaimed Melbourne dining institutions Attica, Flower Drum or Vue de Monde, or any of the many restaurants listed in The Age Good Food or Australian Gourmet Traveller Restaurant Guide.

Eat streets and cheap eats
Explore Melbourne one culinary precinct at a time. Go for Italian in Lygon Street, Carlton, Vietnamese in Victoria Street, Richmond, and Lebanese in Sydney Road, Brunswick. Weigh in on the best-dumpling debate in CBD's Chinatown, and find yourself spoilt for choice in Footscray, where Vietnamese and African restaurants sit side by side.

Join throngs of locals at cheap eats institutions across the city – try Richmond's Thy Thy, Flemington's Laksa King and the CBD's Camy Shanghai Dumpling – and hit up social media to follow Melbourne's army of mobile food vans.

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

For late night bites, follow the hospitality crowd into famous Supper Inn, slide into a booth at Choo Choo's at the Toff, or stay up at Cumulus Up. Northside, city or south, wherever you are, you'll find somewhere to sate a late-night appetite.
