Stumbled across this restaurant and so glad we did!! Every aspect of our visit was perfect: from the service through to the food and the ambience! The servers were excellent at understanding and catering for my intolerances (lactose and gluten). Could not recommend more!!

Central Business District
Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways
tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary
feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the
city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques,
throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You
never quite know what you’ll find around the next
corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and
even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air

We’ve had a small change at Papa Goose. We’ve relaxed the menu and given the dining room a nip and a tuck and can’t wait for you to come and try it. We’ve had chef Bryce Bernhardt running the kitchen for a while now. Bryce came to us after being a sous chef at Church Street Enoteca for three years and chef/co-owner at North Fitzroy’s Jorg and by Jorg @ Narkoojee winery. He has worked with Italian flavours and techniques his whole career and brought this experience to us at Papa Goose. The introduction of more dishes to share made us realise we wanted to give the logo and dining room a new look, too. Think stretched mozzarella with beef tomato, basil and pea oil, and braised octopus with pepperoncini sauce, barbecued squid and lovage; there are part of the ‘Small Plates’ on the menu. But never fear! Our ‘Modern British Fare’ take on the menu will still be there for our regular customers.
