Melbourne has a well-deserved reputation for being the food capital of Australia.

In fact, according to the City of Melbourne’s land use census, there are over than 30,000 cafes and restaurants littered throughout Melbourne and its sprawling suburbs – or about one restaurant or cafe for every 128 people!

The Melbourne dining scene is an eclectic blend of cuisines from all around the world and the city’s fun and daring vibe. Given Melbourne’s unbelievable cultural diversity, it’s no surprise that this is reflected in the city’s buzzing food scene!

Yes, Melbourne foodies are certainly spoilt for choice when it comes to dining out! But finding a parking spot, on the other hand…

We know you might think parking in the CBD is a pain. Fortunately, Le Garage has partnered with some of Melbourne’s most exciting restaurants to offer secure, convenient and affordable parking. We offer discounted parking rates when you reserve your table at any of the following restaurants in Melbourne, so your night out doesn’t have to be marred by a stressful parking experience!

If you ever stop by Oliver Lane, you can’t miss Lucy Liu’s iconic red neon sign.  

If you’re looking for a fun and eclectic Asian drinking and dining experience, Lucy Liu is the perfect place for you.

Start your meal with a bang – we recommend opening with their mouth-watering freshly shucked oysters, with red nam jim or ponzu dipping sauce for a bit of extra tanginess, and ending your night with the intensely sweet Ginger Crème Brûlée with palm sugar, caramel and sesame tuile.

Ikkoryu Fukuoka Ramen

For delicious ramen made the way it’s supposed to be, we can’t recommend Ikkoryu Fukuoka Ramen enough! If you’re in the mood for the authentic Ramen experience, drop by Russell Street.

Choose from a selection of flavours of their signature CHIKUHO noodles, Chashu roast pork, hot Tonkotsu soup and Gyoza (Dumplings).

Philippe

Wam! Bam!
Mon chat, splatch
Gît sur mon lit
A bouffé sa langue
En buvant dans mon whisky

We’re not going to lie, we have no idea what that means… or if it even has anything to do with food!

What we do know however, is that Philippe is the place to be for enthusiasts of French cuisine. Located in the Paris End of Collins Street.  And its Head Chef Philippe Mouche, the restaurant’s namesake and Melbourne’s finest cook of French food promises to deliver skillfully prepared classic French dishes to its patrons.

Philippe offers Prix fixe menu for lunch or dejeuner.  It also has an expansive a la carte menu.

And you didn’t think we’d neglect mention the parking situation, did you? Patrons of Phillipe’s can find affordable parking at Le Garage barely five minutes away! Use the promo code “PHILIPPE” when booking online for a discount on your parking reservation.

Fine French food and affordable, safe parking mere minutes away? Ooo la la!

 

Pastuso

Here’s a fun fact that we’re sure many of us didn’t know before:  Pastuso is Paddington Bear’s Peruvian name.  

So it’s really no surprise that a Peruvian restaurant in AC/DC Lane would name itself after this very high-profile Peruvian!

Explore Peru’s exciting cuisine with Pastuso’s selection of street food and grilled meats. Or go on a culinary adventure around Peru, with set menus that cover the entire span of the country.
