Laird Hotel Melbourne, Australia

Dining Links

The Happy Mexican
A cosy, authentic Mexican eatery less than a minutes walk from The Laird. Even if very busy on Tuesdays it's worth the wait for half-price tacos! Or try Thursdays with discounted Burritos (the chicken is a Laird staff favourite). The one thing that is garunteed, is that no matter what day you go, the service, food and Margharita's are magnífico!

Stomping Ground Brewery and Beer Hall
Featured on tap at The Laird, Stomping ground is one of melbourne's great "micro-brewery success stories. It's a brewery & tavern offering its own brand of tap beers & bar grub in an open, roomy setup.

Le Bon Ton
A smallSaloon-style joint with a smokehouse and beer garden, for Southern US-style grills and absinthe. Staff suggestions: Southern Fried Buttermilk Chicken and fresh-squeezed watermelon juice.

Bomb Cafe
Smack bang in one of Melnbourne's up-and-coming streets-to-be - the Abbotsford end of Johnston Street. Great assortment of pastries, rolls etc. and eco-friendly coffee. Worth heading out back for the tranquil back yard setting.

Bodriggy Brewery
Also in the cool part of Johnston Street Abbotsford is Bodriggy Brewpub is a new brewery-home located in Abbotsford culminating in a brewery, brewpub, cocktail bar and Froff Shop (bottle shop)..

Abbotsford Convent and Children’s Farm
Worth it just for the country-meets-city atmosphere. The Convent Bakery and Children’s Farm Café are highly recommended for breakfast. 10 minutes’ walk from the Laird along the Yarra River.

Victoria Street
While Vietnamese restaurants dominate, Melbourne’s ‘Little Saigon’ also has Thai, Chinese, Indian and Korean as well.

Smith Street
One of the ‘foodie’ destinations of Melbourne, the strip between Gertrude and Johnston Streets now eclipses Brunswick Street for variety - from the humble Kebab, burger joints, Tacos, Ramen, Bahn Mi and a little fine dining.
