While the steak surprisingly enough for me vegetarian self wasn't the object we were after somewhere that would feed Mr Meat and Potato and Moss Vegetarian (moi) and this place could do it with ease.

How lovely is a leisurely Saturday?

Main St is oddly enough tucked along the Main St in Mordialloc right at the end of the Neapean Highway in a lovely old historic building on the corner. The restaurant is all about exposed brick, brown paper specials ... Read More
