Food & wine

From inner city pubs, laneway hotspots, Asian eateries and the finest molecular gastronomy to country hotels, scenic wineries and rustic craft breweries, Victoria's spectacular love affair with food and wine continues unabated. With new restaurants, bars and cafes popping up every week, the only trouble you'll have is choosing where to go and who to take with you.

Stake out the city to find everything from Americana meatballs, Spanish tapas and Chinatown dumplings to hidden coffee dens, rooftop bars and classic Italian trattorias. Chat with locals over beers and a steak at an inner city pub, settle in for an indulgent eight course degustation menu, or choose a direction and hit the road for a weekend of wine, cheese and craft beers in regional Victoria.
