It is a set menu and I had heard rave reviews from other family who had been there so I had high expectations. Appetizer was a single dry sausage, entree was a shared mixed meat plate which was nothing special, main was a steak, your choice of cut, cooked to your liking. It was indeed cooked perfectly, though to my... More

Very old fashioned restaurant. Service was excellent. Steaks cooked to perfection, It is a set menu and the food served to accompany steaks could use a little tweaking,

Dinner with the boys, very simple menu and set up but good, my porterhouse was very very nice. It's not fine dining but it is good steak.

Older style hearty cooking, but can be an interesting experience for you if you don't mind tying different types of cuisines. Wouldn't suggest for vegetarians - yes, there is some fish on the menu, but still a vegetarian can be deeply offended. Lol

Great service. Charming ambience, love the interior. Steak cooked to perfection. Simple and flavoursome meal. The wagyu was the ultimate. The dessert was great. Strawberries and crepes. Overall a pleasant experience.

A large group of us went here as we have heard about it for some time. One of the couples are regulars, I now know why. Not a very fancy looking place, no windows and you sit very close to all the tables. Wine 👍 sausage cones out, then a plate of mixed meat i.e. burger patty, liver and a... More

If you like meat, this will serve you well. Just let them decide what you will have and sit back and enjoy. The grill will sizzle and so will your taste buds.

Firstly and most importantly be hungry to eat lots and lots of meat! This place is meat lovers heaven. The menu is set and most of it is set around many types of meat and all come with a side of coleslaw . You start with a hot dog as a an appetizer, (which I'll admit is different) then move... More

Ambivalent. I had high expectations for this establishment. It has been noted on several platforms that Vlado's makes the "best steaks" in Australia. Pretty big call. I want to say the steaks were amazing, but they just weren't, they were decent, but I definitely would not call it the "best". The experience goes like this: - walk in - sit... More

This is not a romantic place but if you are wanting a great lunch this is it. I have been going to Vlados for 20 years and never ever had a bad steak or meal. You start off with a homemade sausage which is unreal then they bring out a plate of meats all sliced up like a sampler platter.... More
