Searching for good meals in Melbourne

Lushbaby | Mar 12, 2010 06:51 PM

Hi all--first post here. My husband and I will be in Australia for three weeks starting 26 March. I am looking for suggestions on where to eat (that isn't in the tradional American guidebooks). We will be in Melbourne for Formula One weekend 26-29 March and really have no idea where to start. The place doesn't have to be fancy, but flavourful, well-prepared food is a must, and a nice view/ambiance a plus. Husband loves seafood and sushi (I need my fish cooked and with a shell).
A couple of years ago we did 5 weeks in Australia, started in Sydney and ate at Rockpool and Quay (Rockpool was a huge disappointment in terms of service and we thought the food over-priced)
Also looking for late night cocktail places that would welcome us oldies (early 50s) where we can relax, drink, maybe hear some music.

Want to stay up to date with this post?
