Dining Bar
Spanning across two levels, Veludo Bar is a place for social eating and fun. We value the simple things in life – tasty food, friendly service and a well stocked bar!

We know that good food is best when shared with friends so we’ve designed our dishes just that way! Veludo is the perfect meeting place for groups to pop in for a quick bite or enjoy a leisurely meal in a relaxed setting.

If breakfast is more your thing, pop in during the weekend before 3pm and get your day off to a good start with one of our home style breakfasts.

Reserve a table in our downstairs Street Bar or feel free to walk in and find a spot in the upstairs Garden Bar.

    The food here was really great. I had the salmon, and it was perfectly cooked, with lovely flavourful sides of quinoa and broccolini. The place seemed a little understaffed for how busy they were - service times were pretty good considering. The main detractor was the noise level. When we arrived they had music playing in the background, which is fine and expected. Over the course of the meal the volume jumped noticeably twice, and by that point it was impossible to hear others at the table two seats away, and I could only hear the person sitting next to me if they were directly facing me. Overall I would certainly go back, but would try to aim for a quieter time.

    If you book via Open Table do make sure that the staff properly checks you in on their system. They failed to do so when we arrived and the next day we’ve received a complaint from the Open Table for non attendance! And this is after we’ve spent more than $100 on food and drinks! Unbelievable! Also when we arrived our requested table wasn’t available although we’ve booked a couple of weeks in advance. Waited for 10-15 minutes for the menus then started to chase up the waiter. Food is just average and so is the ambiance. Do not recommend. There are plenty of good restaurants on Acland st so choose wisely.

    The food was poor (didn’t look like the photos), overpriced and bar staff were creepy. Wouldn’t recommend. I know the bar at the top used to be good for a night out but this was really disappointing.

    Great food and selection and the healthy salad was absolutely delicious. The staff seemed run off their feet and were difficult to attract at times. But we got our food in plenty of time to eat prior to show at the National.

    Average food. Porterhouse was average, vegetables weren’t great. Wasn’t given a drink menu on arrival, had to ask for it.

    Great service and ambience. Chicken Parma was a good size but lacked seasoning.

    The food was great. I had the beetroot croquet starter and it was delish! My steak was cooked to perfection.My partner had the pork belly and it was really nice too. To finish we had the dessert selection.Overall fantastic food and great portion sizes. The restaurant had a nice cosy ambiance to it. The only slightly negative comment I would make was regarding our waitress. She was a little impatient and we didn't find her very polite. We went at a quiet time too, there was only a handful of other diners so she wasn't run off her feet. Overall had a really enjoyable meal and would recommend it.

    While we found the meals were ok the serving staff appeared as if they wanted to be somewhere other than serving. We asked for the music to be turned down but were told it was as quiet as it could be making conversation more difficult.

    Awesome staff and magnificent food. The bar upstairs is a good option if you want to continue on. Would recommend to anyone wanting a nice meal on Acland st.
