Well what a wonderful surprise Marion turned out to be. We had booked a table but were a little late so they asked if we would prefer to sit outside. This was a great suggestion as we could stay as long as we liked. It was a balmy Melbourne evening and experiencing the delights that Marion served up whilst watching the world go by on Gertrude st was really special. We chose the Feed Me menu and they tailored the menu to dietary requirements without a problem. The service was impeccable - attentive, knowledgeable and friendly wait staff was a bonus. The food was fresh, healthy, interesting and there was lots of it! The dessert was a standout - choux pastry with hazelnut parfait, flaked almonds and salted caramel. I didn’t want it to end! We left feeling so satisfied & happy- it was a really special meal. Highly recommend checking Marion out when in Melbourne.

Fifth visit - this place just continues to deliver. We stopped in here for a light late lunch and to have some delicious prawn rolls (gluten free option in a lettuce leaf available).

We also shared a prosciutto platter, vitello tonnato and tomato and burrata. All very tasty.

Good wine list.

Service was very friendly and efficient.

Will absolutely visit again.

A spur of the moment decision to stop for lunch as we walked by was rewarded with a culinary delight. The waiter was attentive, knowledgeable but not intrusive.

The Tapas size portions are not large and so we needed more than one might expect; the menu was adventurous but the food excellent - the best we experienced in three weeks touring south and SE Australia.

The wine list was extensive but felt a bit eclectic to me.

The furnishings are rather minimalist and so if it had been busy I would expect older people (such as we are) to find it hard to hear each other.

(A$250 all in for five).

Last minute Valentine's Day dinner booking. Second time having eaten at Marion. Seems to be getting better and better each time. Food is amazing (quality I have only experienced before in San Sebastian, Spain). Drinks are exceptional. Staff are cool, friendly, attentive and knowledgeable. This place is truly a stand out in a city full of exceptional restaurants. Could not recommend more highly. Fine dining with very reasonable prices.
