I've been to Ludlow several times and have never been disappointed. The location is fabulous along the waterfront and the private dining area at the back is fantastic. The staff are very professional and friendly and the atmosphere is great. The food is always very good, it's not an extensive menu but everything on it is good. I would recommend... More

We had lunch on a gorgeous Melbourne day at Ludlows. Fantastic service and the views are stunning. My lunch was the roast beef sandwich was quite tasty. Nice array of beers too!

We arrived on Saturday night without a booking so were pleased that they were able to accommodate us. The menu does not have a large selection but enough to appeal to most. I ordered the barramundi and was pleased to see that it had a nice crispy skin. The fish tasted very good and the fennel (cooked and uncooked) was... More

Ate at Ludlow on a Monday night and got the "Steak Night" special. It wasn't special. More like a down market pub meal. Pretty average at best. Wait staff were great, drinks menu is extensive and the location on South Bank is also good.

We walked along the river and couldn't find anything I could eat (I am fussy)... Found this place and it was a little expensive..but that's what you get in town... The service was great.. I think the boy serving us was Jack..an English boy and he was very attentive without it seeming like a chore! The food was great...could have... More

Great position right on the banks of the Yarra in a sheltered position that catches any sunshine, lovely food & the $20 chefs special and glass of wine or beer is a bargain.

Walking past, our eyes caught the Tuesday Ribs Deal for $20 including a glass of house wine. Definitely worth a visit. The ribs were tender and served with crispy onion rings. Southbank has a plethora of great restaurants catering for every need. However, sometimes you just want to enjoy a meal that doesn't cost a small fortune. Service was prompt... More

Meet a friend for drinks at Ludlows. Nice little spot. Service was a tad slow but they had a good casual wine selection and the views and people watching were great. Easy to get to if you're in downtown Melbourne.
