Fantastic Italian food that never disappoints. We received fantastic service from the whole team, they were friendly and attentive. They brought out a complimentary dessert when one of my dining companions mentioned it was my birthday. It was a really sweet thing to do and made a great experience (and my birthday) even better.

About the restaurant
Taking a stroll through Melbourne’s iconic Botanical Gardens always leads back to Jardin Tan. The picture-perfect location offers a vibrant fusion of Vietnamese and French cuisine within a modern Australian setting. The exciting and delicious fusion of Vietnamese cuisine at Jardin Tan never fails to excite tourists, families and joggers alike.

Much like the grounds themselves, as the leaves change colour with the seasons so too does the menu. Ingredients are kept local, seasonal and are predominately grown in the garden. Jardin Tan offers a different experience to each diner – enjoy a takeaway coffee from the outdoor kiosk, a warm and cosy indoor lunch or an afternoon drink in the thriving courtyard.

I booked the restaurant for a catch up with girlfriends and although initially given a table at the front, after making a request we were moved to the back which was much warmer and comfortable. Staff were attentive and very helpful and the food was delicious. We stayed till late and were not pressured in any way to leave. Unfortunately the coffee machine stops being used after a certain time so we had to move on elsewhere to get a coffee but overall we were happy with Mama's Canteen.
