    Supposedly this is a cliche visit for anyone coming to Melbourne but it's worth it. Great food and tasty cocktails but they're price was nothing to rave about. Lovely dim lighting and great service.

    Love this place! The food is beyond perfect and the service extra-ordinary! Some of my favourites are the deep fried whole baby snapper, pork ribs, green curry with dumplings and the stir fried beef.

    Highlight of Melbourne. Shared deep fried barramundi, soft shell crab, deep fried pork ribs and steamed mussels. I don't even like mussels, these ones were so delicately flavoured and beautiful.

    Ask for what beer is new on tap. They have your usual brews as well as an ever changing selection of refreshingly obscure beers on tap from all over the globe.

    Best place in the city for drinking beer. Cozy atmosphere, huge beer list, friendly staff.

    Get the staff to recommend their favourite menu items. If you're not sure, then they are bound to inspire you (Thai grilled sausage was amazing).

    Yellow chicken curry, chilli prawns and soft shell crab roll. Easily the best in town. Even on a busy night, the staff is really great!!

    Lamb Penang and coconut rice washed down with an amoretto sour - it's a killer combo #delish

    Great place in summer, if you can get a window seat. Food is amazing. Don't come here to catch up just for a drink there are a million better places.

    This place has an excellent selection of beer and wine, but don't forget to eat there. Amazing Thai inspired food (don't forget to order roti).

    Melbourne institution for inspired cocktails, great Thai food, and massive selection of beers. Our Must-do spot in Melbs. Read more

    Great drinks and food - one of the bigger bars (ie. not really a hidden pub) but really nice, specially with a bigger group.

    Fantastic selection of bottled international beer. If you're in good beer loving company, then it's a great stop on one of the quieter nights.

    Crazy cocktail and beer menu with thai styled dishes to share. If there's no room at the restaurant, it's the same menu at the bar. Don't forget Rooftop Bar on lvl 4

    For a refreshing resplendent beverage try a CV and B. It is a shirt glass with ice, single shot of Cariel Vanilla vodka topped with Bulmers Cider. Nothing better than vodka and apple, simply divine!

    They have little creatures on tap, and of all the places I've tried it in Melbourne, its the best at cookie.

    Make sure you order a bicycle beer with the spicy scallop entree - good combo and the beer puts out the flames in your mouth

    No reservation? Tables filled up? Try the bar to the left and around the corner, there are usually seats and you can order from the full menu

    If you're having dinner. Make a reservation. Or you get treated like a second class citizen on the bar side. I've been waiting for my food for an hour. All my friends have finished

    Excellent food, service and beer. My favourite Melbourne venue. Make sure you book if you want to eat because Cookie is very very awesome and everyone will already be here before you.

    Don't wear a suit or look like a tosser, or the bouncer Ali will tell you the venue is closed. Once you're inside, have a gin and tonic with cucumber, or a passionfruit martini. Fantastic flavours.

    I've tried pork belly in many different places, but it was only here that the very first bite made me exclaim: oh, that's what it's supposed to taste like!

    This place gives and gives. Try the pork belly curry, the duck, the flaming zombie cocktail and then go upstairs to the bar!

    Make the bar staff choose your drinks for you. Much more interesting. Ask for Luke, his beer knowledge is second to none!

    Every entree was incredibly spicy. Even the pad Thai which is normally a safe choice burned my mouth.

    Try the Bloody Mary, which better resembles a spicy alcoholic soup than the gentle hangover cure of yore. Read more

    Vale dizer que a Tapioca deles não tem nada a ver com a nossa tapioca... Adocicada e apimentada, parece um grude. Assim falando parece ruim, mas é bom...
