We felt welcomed the moment we arrived. Service was warm and attentive and the staff paid close attention to your preferences and worked well as a team. Emilio was very welcoming and the food – wow! We rate the steak and how it was cooked 1010. You know how to cook a good steak. Sides enhanced the flavour too. We’ll be back for sure!

We wanted good steak without having to go far from Bundoora and were pleasantly surprised with this gem of a steakhouse!

We look for nice steakhouses all around Australia but didn’t know we had the best one only minutes from our home. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal. The service was excellent. The steaks were generous, cooked perfectly and tasted amazing. My husband can’t wait to come back!

OUTSTANDING!!!!! We dropped in a few months back for a pre event drink and were so impressed we had to return! Emilio and his staff provided outstanding service. although Im not a steak eater I was assured by my carnivore husband that the steak was cooked to perfection, the chicken was delicious and the chips are the BEST in Melbourne, if not the world! Our Gluten Free guest was catered for with no fuss. Now I was lucky enough to try most of the desserts and still cant decided which was my favourite, its a toss up between the mousse and the chocolate crepe. A great selection of wine is available and the restuarant is cosy and comfortable. We will definately be returning.
