Celebrated my partners birthday here and we loved both the hospitality and the food. We will certainly be returning. It is great that we are located on the same road as this hidden gem!

From the greeting at reception to the provision of food the experience of myself and my associates was most rewarding.

A group of us dined here recently and it was excellent. Just tucked away at the back of Port Melbourne and a 5 minute walk from the main streets where there are some decent bars for a pre-dinner drink. Place itself was very nicely decked out and a relaxed atmosphere. Shared entrees were really good, although the charcuterie plate was... More

The Graham was a perfect spot to end our one-day stay in Melbourne (visiting off a cruise ship). It's walking distance from the port. The menu is excellent, as is the wine list. I had the waygu beef - best I've ever tasted. And of course a fine Australian Cabernet Sauvignon to go with it. I'd return to the Graham... More

We dined at The Graham last night and I still have mixed feelings about our experience. Without a doubt the food was faultless and delicious. The clam linguine was exquisite and the pate was amazing. But the service was bizarre. When we arrived our table was pointed out to us from the other side of the room. I would have... More

The Graham has an interesting and varied lunch menu, lots of choices, reasonable prices and a variety of wines by the glass. We had delicious home made pasta with a lamb ragu - great flavour and perfect to enjoy sitting outside in the sun and enjoying a glass of Pinot Grigio from the King Valley

Melbourne Friends took us to this Gastro Pub - what a find! We had such a good experience and dinner on Tony and Peter's last weekend in control. They are selling but judging by the atmosphere we expect the good service will continue with the new owners. We certainly hope so as it is a local favourite. Fabulous food and... More

Sad to hear at our most recent visit for dinner, that Tony and Peter are moving on. They have served the local community for some 16 years with outstanding food and service. Wonderful wine cellar, and fabulous food menu. For those who have not tried the Graham, suggest you do so soon, this has been an institution for lovers of... More

This restaurant is located in one of the back streets in Port Melbourne. There are number of parts to this place, a nice small/medium size wine bar which has lounges, high stools and an outdoor area. Then theres a fine dining restaurant and private dining at the front. The service we received was great and the food was very tasty.... More
