Fantastic vibe, stopped in for a beer and a bite to eat and was not disappointed. The Menu is tapas and you must try the pork belly it's divine! They have an amazing selection of Australian wines, spirits and beers, look forward to coming back!

We stopped here at lunchtime for a cold beer and cider while walking around Melbourne during the recent heat wave. Sitting by the river and drinking was a great way to cool down.
We also went back there a night to sample the cocktails with unique Australian tastes.

This is a great place for afternoon drinks. Super friendly staff who welcomed our 2 furries with their own water bowls. We haven't sampled the menu apart from olives to accompany our drinks..but kitchen is on show so would expect fresh, tasty offerings.

Only had a few drinks here before going to dinner but as it was one of those beautiful Melbourne evenings there was no better spot. On the banks of the Yarra River there were cyclist going home and plenty rowers training on the river.
The recommended beer tasted very good and service was efficient, friendly and not too pushy.

lovely staff, who take an eon to do anything. 10 mins for a bottle of ale to move 4 metres?

Food was delightful. a confit kingfish and a slightly bland chook terrine.

Long black was a tasteless filter coffee - argh! It also took an eon to emerge.

good position. good tucker and shocking staff supervision - in its favour it is quieter than its neighbours.

also - smokers are allowed near eating area. Great if you fancy Camels with your kingfish confit...
