We first wandered into this restaurant right on the Yarra, for lunch, after an arduous game of golf, and we were not disappointed! The food was served piping hot, and the portions were very generous, as well as being extremely tasty! We had the fish and chips, the wagu burger, and several delectable salads, all of which were beautifully fresh,... More

DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONY HERE!!!” My wife and I went to the Meat Market last week and I have to say, it is probably one of the worst restaurants we have eaten at! This was not mainly due to the food but the service we received and from whom I presume was the manager. It was such a shame... More

We began with the large charcuterie which consisted of a superb selection of cold meats, oysters and cheeses. The large plate was easily sufficient for 4 persons. And then the steaks which were perfectly cooked and delicious, particularly the eye fillets. The pepper sauce on my dish was a little thin but otherwise the meal was faultless

Went on a Monday lunchtime via the Dimmi 50% offer and had the porterhouse steak with French fries. It was pretty quiet in the restaurant with only 4-5 tables occupied. The steak was nicely cooked and it was accompanied by a pleasant bearnaise sauce. I was interested to see that they also offer a $20 lunchtime option for a main... More

Nothing like sitting outside and people watch whilst you devour a good steak and chips. Food is good , drinks a little pricey but that seems to the norm these days.great staff, prompt and friendly,

You would think that a restaurant that specialises in meat might be able to cook a steak to order. It appears not. One steak ordered rare, one medium rare, and one medium; all delivered rare. Side orders not particularly appetising. Cheeses bland. Overall this was a little disappointing though not particularly bad.

We wanted to take advantage of Dimmi's 50% off dining in January and chose the meat market because of it's fantastic view of South Wharf, extensive menu that we already thought had great prices which became incredible after 50% off. The lamb sausages were delicious while I thoroughly enjoyed my eye fillet and wished the serving of potato gratin was... More
