The atmosphere and company were really enjoyable. The wait-staff tried their best, but the food was the worst I have ever eaten. I could have forgiven the tiny portion sizes and the exorbitant price if the food had been enjoyable

Sunday lunch with friends, a magnificent menu and wine list , lovely interior design and first class service. We each choose 3 meal plates and 1 dessert with a salad side and chick pea fries. No one is eating dinner tonight but neither have we left with that uncomfortable bloated feeling. The food was beautifully presented, each plate a piece of art and the flavours stunning. At $100+ of course it's not cheap but the quality shines through. Original menu like no other, we will return to enjoy what we were told is a constantly changing menu. Nice touch for the chef / owner to come to the table and have a chat. The home made bread was fabulous. Particularly like the pace that the meals were delivered to the table. Highly recommended especially if you want something different, loved it

went today with mates for lunch. They do a 2 course lunch special with coffee for $36.
Menu has so many things on it we would have liked to try so we will be back again to try some other things.
Menu is very different to most restaurants and cooking some meats that you dont often see but cooking them extremly well. Had 6 different dishes and all were superb.
Not many people in for lunch but should be as it is a bargain. Also BYO which is a bonus for those with a cellar. Glassware brillant too.
This is a must try whether you are a foodie or not.

We’ve been here many times for dinner (including degustation) and recently went for Sunday breakfast. The food is always lovely, tastes so fresh and is creatively prepared with some ingredients from the Australian Bush included. The bonus is Michelle’s wine knowledge which is fantastic! She always knows the right wine to pair with the lovely food making it a great all round experience.

Are you over the industrial feel brekky joints? You know that vibe of “This feels classy” but not intimidating? Well Altairs got that feel and so has the menu.
You can order ordinary tucker but there’s some nice make you think alternatives.. chilli sardines or what I had beautifully cooked fried pork hock with rhubarb and nice rice ‘stuff’
It’s cool to be able to lurch out of there and go for a walk beside the Yarra.
