This is a lovely venue to meet up with friends - great ambience and very friendly attentive staff. It's even quite a nice place to hang out on your own with a book and a glass of wine.
Great venue, we loved the ambience and service was fantastic!
I love the ambience and the quirky look and feel of the Moat. There is always delicious food to suit a variety of tastes and great service. A 'go to' place for a drink or meal in Melbourne for me.
This place! Our book club meet here regularly and we love the service, food and atmosphere.
Lovely service, great food, amazing wine and ambiance. I came with a group of 3 before we went to a writers festival talk and we only wished we had longer to linger there.
Moat never disappoints ! Great food - really interesting flavours , AND incredible service from truly lovely staff, who are genuinely keen everyone has a great experience and they make a Friday night fun.
Moat is a lovely little lunch place. It's quiet and has a great quirky feel. The service is always perfect, the wine selection is great, the food is great, not a huge selection and it rarely changes.
Great lunch spot in central location. Fine food at reasonable prices.
This is a great venue for a quick meal after an event with fabulous staff and delicious food that is reasonably priced. Always enjoy going there.
The moat is a solid , not too expensive, cosy place with good food , delicious beer on tap and a decent wine selection. I never had a bad experience there and this time around I took some people from overseas who certainly left very happy
Service and atmosphere were lovely, unfortunately our food didn't quite match up with the prices of $45 odd for a main. I ordered the duck fillet which arrived lukewarm, and the plum sauce was too sweet and singular in flavour.
Such elegant food amidst a beautiful setting! Love love love their Eton mess, yum! Books and wine, what’s not to love? Will definitely go back again.
Helpful and charming staff. Efficient service with a smile.
It was a business meeting lunch - I ordered badly - a vegetarian version of their ploughman's type lunch.
Not a good choice...
Waited nearly half an hour for a menu and order to be taken. Delightful girl served us but she was totally run off her feet. Food was delicious. Noise level was very very high.
The background music was loud, intrusive and unnecessary. Service was exemplary and the food top notch (smoked salmon, meat balls). Will go back when it's quiet.
Amazing service, beautiful food, stunning venue. I would definitely recommend and will definitly be back!
The Moat is our favourite Cafe in Melbourne, great staff. great location. We organize our monthly literary meetings there. Also every time we visit the State Library or the Wheelers Centre, we drop by at the Moat to have a coffee.
One of our favourites
Great food and excellent service!
