Ethos Eat Drink
There's lots to love about this locavore restaurant. Hidden at the end of a covered laneway, with a courtyard overflowing with kitchen garden plants, the welcome is as warm as the old bricks that line the walls - and matched with knowledgeable service.
Smolt manages to be most things to many people. With its welcoming, mid-century-modern interiors, you can duck in for a mid-morning coffee, meet at the communal table for a post-work or post-MONA glass of wine from the well-considered list and a small plate or two, or pop in for a sneaky dessert.
Mud Bar & Restaurant
The menu at Mud is a bit of a jumble: part Euro-comfort and part fresh and spicy pan-Asian flavour. But given the right expectations, this casual, riverside bistro can satisfy many different appetites.
