Melbourne Stays are Full of Flavour.

Melbourne at Night

A vibrant city, full of life, Melbourne is an exciting dining destination too, with literally hundreds of eateries along the attractive tree-lined streets and lanes of this pretty Australian metropolis. Anantara Vacation Club Owners love exploring the street-style cafes, upscale bistros fronted by Michelin starred chefs, as well as glittering roof top bars and sublime supper clubs. Melbourne fuses an eclectic medley of cultures and cuisines to tempt every palette.

If you are looking to sample some of Melbourne’s dining treasures during your stay, take your lead from the locals who have hand selected a few favourites within easy distance of your contemporary stay at our Club Escape, Oaks on Market Melbourne, with its spacious, self-contained apartments in the heart of Victoria’s buzzing capital.

Flower Drum

17 Market Lane

A true Melbourne institution, Flower Drum specializes in Cantonese fusion cuisine and is about to celebrate 40 years as one of Melbourne’s best restaurants. Executive Chef Anthony Lui has earned celebrity status among locals and visitors alike with mouthwatering dishes with uniquely Australian twists, like sliver-thin pearl meat from Broome, in Western Australia and wallaby tail soup with dried wolfberries and wild yam!

Cumulus Inc. Eating House & Bar

45 Flinders Lane

Cumulus Inc. Eating House & Bar blurs the lines between restaurant, café and bar but it is the exquisite food created by Chef Andrew McConnell that sees Cumulus Inc. consistently polling as one of Melbourne’s best. The 15 page wine list is epic, as is the food, including an Australian oyster menu depicted by region and dishes imbuing the restaurant’s renowned rustic farmhouse feel. Prepare to wait though, as the restaurant has a no reservations policy, ensuring first in best dressed is order of the day.

Cumulus Inc. is just over 1 km away from Oaks on Market Melbourne, making it an easy stroll after an amazing culinary feast!

Vue de Monde

Level 55/Rial to 525 Collins Street

The decadent and highly awarded Vue De Monde is poised 55 stories above the CBD within the iconic Rialto Tower; formerly Melbourne’s tallest building, with sweeping views across the city. Chef Shannon Bennett presents a French inspired menu with indigenous delicacies such as salt cured wallaby and emu jerky, paired with the finest wine and champagne. The degustation menu is its piece de resistance; the more sedate four-course ‘choice’ menu or impressive 10-course ‘freedom’ menu both promise an adventure of sublime gastronomy.
