Fodor's Review

Occupying an innovatively designed steel-and-glass space above Federation Square, Taxi boasts both extraordinary food and spectacular views over Melbourne. East meets west on a menu that combines Japanese flavors—soy tuna tataki, caramelized orange and Sake Lee sauce—with such European-inspired fare as slowly braised lamb shoulder with a roasted lamb loin and saltbush jus. There is also an impressive list of new- and old-world wines. To taste some of Australia's best

craft beers, have a pre-meal drink at the Transport Bar on the ground floor.

Great food, great service, high prices

We were able to walk in on a weeknight by taking seats at a bar, side-by-side, but were told otherwise they booked a week in advance. The food and wine were exceptional, as was the service. My only question is whether the prices are justified, although I grant there is a class of restaurants with similar prices. But going to a place I can't even cover on a corporate expense account is a luxury I can't afford to repeat too often.

A hidden jewel

Langton's is one of my favourite restaurants. The ambience is excellent. The food is supberb. I have eaten there often and each time I am extremely impressed with the meal and service.

Mouchel has Gone!

Like several other reviews in the Fordors Melbourne section, it is plain that at least a year has passed since the review. So how many of the other reviews around the world are seriously out of date. Not good enough for an on-line site. Phil Mouchel went to Sydney, and now I believe is in Asia somewhere. Langtons is still fine (but different) Try Verge, which is nearby on Spring St junction
