Vivace

Welcome to Vivace. Our Suburban Italian restaurant (established in 2004) has a very classy and warm atmosphere, with soft and intimate lighting. Professional staff members are knowledgeable about the menu and wine list, and offer a non-intrusive level of service at all times. The tantalising menu ranges from fresh seafood to quality meat, with specials that change daily to keep regular diners happy.

Fabulous food, great service as always. These guys never let their standards fall. Which probably explains why they were almost packed out on a Tuesday evening!Thank you! We are happy you enjoyed your visit and we look forward to welcoming you back to Vivace soon.

Kimchi Grandma

Reviewed By Z00M33 - Balgowlah, Australia

Our second time with a small group, one of the noisiest places I can ever remember but that's OK it's fine for family groups and noise is normal to kids. All the dishes are delicious, ask for help when ordering. The staff are OK and not great with English but work at it - the reward is the food. The serves are X Large so go easy on what you order - or ask for take away left overs. They sell beer but wine is BYO (you are not permitted BYO beer). We will go back

Paradai Thai

Reviewed By justdoinggeography - Melbourne, Australia

Busy and cosy neighbourhood Thai which serves tasty food, which is probably the reason why its so busy. The service was good being attentive and pleased to serve. Follows SE Asian protocols for "personal space", so you're never too far away from someone (best described as cosy!!). The food is really good. I was served one of the better Thai curries that I've had for a while. Good value.

Paradai 2 Thai

You have a listing for Paradai Thai Restaurant at 75 Koornang Road, Carnegie, however there is another Thai restaurant directly across the road from this one called Paradai 2, and this is the one I went to and would like to review. I assume having such a similar name that they may even be run by the same people, but either way it is a separate restaurant and the distinction needs to be made. Thanks.

Excellent food, great service and very good value for the money. This place is always fully packed and that is a best sign of quality

Sumalee

Reviewed By Abi C - Melbourne, Australia

Visited for a birthday dinner upon recommendations of friends. Bentwood chairs quaint but very uncomfortable. My sister and I both had the Fish on the Beach which was tasty and quite spicy with chilli throughout the dressing and on the fish. My father had the special ‘Honey Soy Ribs’ which he found a little sweet but very tasty. We were disappointed that there was only one panacotta available for dessert by the time we ordered but the restaurant is small so order early if you want to ensure you get what you want. Moderately priced restaurant but quality food that seemed fresh and well presented.

Mr Brightside

Open for breakfast, brunch and lunch, this contemporary cafe in the heart of Caulfield offers a welcome reprieve from everyday life in suburbia. Owners George and Tait have previously operated and managed some of Melbourne’s finest restaurants and their experience is reflected in both the food quality and the service standards of the cafe. 1. Eat in or take away 2. Indoor & outdoor dining 3. Daily specials 4. Breakfast or Brunch 5. Lunch or Afternoon Tea/Coffee 6. Kids menu…and much more : )

Reviewed By pixiegypsie - Melbourne, Australia

Great for coffee, breakfast, brunch, morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea. The coffee is excellent, so are the freshly squeezed juices. The menu has many dishes to choose from to please all tastes. The food is fresh, delicious, plentiful and all at reasonable prices. The very friendly staff seem to enjoy working at Mr Brightside, which has a lovely vibe. Love being here with friends and family often. Highly recommend this eatery.

Lovely little spot in Carnegie. Very fast service, you order using tablets and food comes quick and its delicious. Affordable prices and good variety of food. I find limited drinks menu, I wish they had more traditional Japanese soft drinks

Spilt Milk

Reviewed By Mei Y - Nullagine, Australia

Went there this morning, guided by the Internet ratings on all day breakfasts. Conveniently located near the Carnegie Railway Station , and directly opposite the Caltex petrol station, it is still easy to spot this tiny joint. Good coffee. The fried stuff a bit too oily on fresh salad but tiny proportions
