The view of yachts, pretty quiet on Sunday! The famous spiral bridge and great weather. We had poached eggs and soy latte, just relaxing! Highly recommended. Take a stroll from casino via DFO shopping centre, (15 min) or park along 833 Collins street Anz and walk over. Alfresco is nice and refreshing. Let me know what you think.

Food was good quality, very tasty and delivered in a timely manner. The prices were reasonable. A nice location overlooking the marina. They have beanbags that you can sit on under the palm trees, if you choose to.

My wife and I went there for lunch, we got the Seafood platter for 2, Moreton bay bugs and 12 oysters and it was amazing. The whole baked barramundi was the favourite in the platter. Not a huge fan of mussels but even they were amazing. Definitely worth it!

Smart casual dining. Meals are a touch over priced. Happy hour is to be taken advantage of. 2 wines for $10! Sticky date does not have a lot of flavor. Almost sent it back but husband said no.

We stumbled upon this place whilst walking to the DFO. It was a warm day so we decided to grab a quick drink. It wasn't that expensive for a place of that stature. The drinks were good. Upon going outside, there was a lovely seating area with views across the river. There were bean bags to relax in, and also... More

We dined at Hooks in February 2016 and I must say that I wasn't feeling 100% on the way there. However, the evening picked up and we enjoyed a quality meal at reasonable price. The service was very attentive without being intrusive, the food was excellent and the location is wonderful. The only minor issue if you are travelling by... More

Went with work colleagues and ordered the Pollo Pasta. Came out quite quickly even though it was PACKED because of lunch hour rush. It was hot so was just cooked and tasted yum however myself and 2 other colleagues felt quite strange all afternoon and sickly. May not have been the food but coincidence. Otherwise the staff were friendly and... More

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
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 of Berlin in the street art, a touch of Paris in the umbrella-shaded cafes and, reminiscent of Rome, eateries tucked away in the most unlikely of places. Perhaps you might want a break and cross the Yarra River to Southbank - walk along the promenade, bask in the sun at a waterside bar and decide whether to go to the nearby casino or book a ticket at the Melbourne theatre company.
