Melbourne's Best Business Lunches

From private to semi-private dining rooms, wine and dine in our top picks of Melbourne's finest and make the most out of your lunch hour. 

Rosa Mitchell's pan-Italian food at the light-filled Rosa's Canteen (500 Bourke St, Melbourne, 03 9602 5491) is wowing the city's legal precinct, while fellow Italians Bottega (74 Bourke St, Melbourne, 03 9654 2252), Merchant (Rialto, 495 Collins St, Melbourne, 03 9614 7688), Grossi Florentino's The Grill (80 Bourke St, Melbourne, 03 9662 1811) and Cecconi's (61 Flinders La, Melbourne, 03 8663 0500) also provide great backdrops to deal-sealing. Bellota (181 Bank St, South Melbourne, 03 9078 8381) takes a modern, produce-driven approach, with the bonus of the Prince Wine Store attached, while smart laneway restaurant The French Brasserie (2 Malthouse La, Melbourne, 03 9662 1632) favours the classic. Taxi Kitchen (Federation Square, Melbourne, 03 9654 8808) divides its time between Asia and Europe, while corporate favourite Hanabishi (187 King St, Melbourne, 03 9670 1167) makes all the right Japanese moves. Rockpool Bar & Grill (Riverside At Crown, 8 Whitman St, Southbank, 03 8648 1900) will satisfy seafood and steak-loving colleagues alike.
