Melbourne Restaurants

For lovers of good food and wine, the city of Melbourne Australia is the place to visit. Melbourne's unique blend of cultures and Australia's isolation make for an enticing variety of flavours, produce, ideas and customs. The result is an exceptional culinary experience, often said to be very European.

One of the world's finest cool climate wine districts is nestled alongside the Yarra Valley on the outskirts of Melbourne, Victoria. Boasting famous chardonnay, sparkling wines, shiraz, pinot noir and cabernet sauvignon, Melburnian restaurants are a showcase for their bounty.

Undoubtedly the Melbourne restaurant scene is at its pinnacle on the first Tuesday of November at the annual Melbourne Cup lunch celebrations. Melbourne weather can be unpredictable when it comes to rain, but that only adds to the city's excitement. Throw in a thriving tourist trade and Melbourne is a truly exciting destination for food and wine enthusiasts.

Melbourne is markets mad! The most famous are the Queen Street markets or 'Queen Victoria Markets'; dazzling produce markets heaving with fresh fruit and vegetables, herbs and spices, meats and game, seafood…you name it.

Anyone can shop here, but a lot of this produce feeds into the innumerable Melbourne restaurants, where talented chefs from around the globe celebrate that much loved ceremony of nourishing the body and the soul.

Most of Melbourne's best dining areas are in the inner city areas (check a Melbourne map) and getting to them is easy on public transport. So, no matter your budget or the type of food you like, Melbourne has something delicious to tantalise your tastebuds.
