Upon arriving, the general atmosphere and the bar with pool table (of course!) are inviting. The staff are professional and make you feel at home throughout the evening. The menu is quite broad and takes a different approach as it breaks up the choices by dish size instead of entree, main, etc. Unfortunately the food itself was a little disappointing... More

Previous visit have been a treat. Love playing billiards either before or after a meal. Even stayed for a pleasant night. BUT This last visit was a nightmare, and seemed to be for all tables around us. Of the 4 dishes we ordered, two entree (small) and two mains (large) ... my partner got entree and main at same time,... More

Stayed at the hotel which is lovely! We only had breakfast here on our last day, food was cold and just tasted bland compared to all the amazing eats you can have in Melbourne. Menu was too 'fancy' and 'alternate' just make a good tasting, hot breakfast and you will never fail.

The restaurant is in a well restored historic building. The tables are well spaced out. The menu is divided into "small" , "medium" and "large" (equivalent to mains) and the patron is allowed to use combinations of these and as share plates. This is really good if you prefer not to have large meals. Service was good and attentive. We... More

Dined here recently and must say we were a little disappointed. There was no wow factor. Food looked good, but taste was disappointing. Restaurant service was reasonable. Coffee undrinkable. Was even more disappointed in the way we were handled when having a quiet game of snooker after dinner. Having been told the bar closed at 11, was unable to purchase... More

The food was good overall, however if you have a medium to large appetite, you might wish for more. Seven shared courses were $65, an extra $10 for dessert, per person.. For the price we have had better meals. It is an easy option if you are staying at the hotel. The service was excellent, the staff friendly and professional.

This restaurant is a pleasant surprise. It has heaps of character and the front of house team do a fantastic job. The menu has plenty of variety and caters for appetites of all sizes.

I like the taste of salt but the salad with my fish was overly salty. My heirloom tomato salad (which had no tomatoes) had a crusty dressing that was horrendously salty and inedible. The fish was quite nice and the restaurant has a lovely ambience.

We ate here before the Keith Urban concert, so we wanted something that we would receive rather fast. I have been to this hotel before, but only for drinks. It is nice quite place to dine and/or for drinks. The restaurant is small in comparison to a lot of others in Melbourne, but it has a god ambience to it.... More

Sometimes restaurants are created with a brand and vision that eventually fall flat, and perhaps Felt needs a 're-boot' with a something that fits the hotel better. While the food is tasty, it's all rather 'same-ee' with perhaps too much focus on a particular style that personally I don't like. The bread basket (no matter which you pick) will remove... 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.
