Don’t expect much

Boasting 14 restaurants around the world and located near the foot of Melbourne’s tallest building (Eureka Tower), Meat & Wine Co promises big things. This multi-level, contemporary take on a steak-house attracts many families and couples looking to satisfy their inner carnivore. Our burger came on a seeded bun, with a 200g Angus beef pattie, baby cos lettuce, tomato, Spanish onion, Bbq and 1000 Island sauces, and a helping of chips and onion rings.

“I can confidently say I was expecting more from a place with such a reputation. I found that it really lacked any unique flavours that would make me order seconds. It just seemed a little too “production line”. I was most unimpressed with the bun. It looked like a precut supermarket special. Although with some prompting, they will cook your pattie to your desired temperature. We asked for medium-rare.”
“This burger reminded me of something you might find at an Applebees or Bubba Gump in the States. The beef was dry, the bun was dry and I couldn’t taste either of the two sauces. If I go again I’ll have it with cheese. The onion rings were great though. I’d say its the type of place bogans go to for a fancy night in the city.”
“By looking at the glazed ribs served on the table next to us I was expecting something a little bit better than what we got. The sauce in the burger reminded me of what you would often get in a Whopper. The bun was nothing special, the pattie was dry and unevenly cooked. Overall lets just say I preferred the chips.”
“You won’t leave Meat & Wine Co hungry. Maybe a little disappointed with your Classic Burger, but not hungry. For a small price, they do have a large selection of sauces that you can add to your burger, including Vodka & Blue Cheese, which we ordered on the side. I say go crazy: add sauce, add cheese, the works… because this burger needs all the help it can get.”


This is a bit out-of-date – the burgers are much better now. Also note the location is at Freshwater Place – not Eureka!

I had a burger there recently, didn’t look anything like that one and was freaking amazing. Go again I say.

Nothing Special Onion rings is the only dish.. rude wait staffs. Everything triple priced and dirty Ambiance We got a rude staff member telling us to leave early as if the table booked already. Steaks and Lambs were overcooked. They do not marinate before cooking and just throw the flavour on it. Salads are not filling.Stale Prawns in Parmesan & Rocket Salad caused us Indigestion. They tell you to buy fizzed imported spring water
