Great experience from stepping into the restaurant. Very helpful and friendly servers. Food was impeccable! My only complaint was that they were out of the lamb which is what I really wanted, but we did arrive later in the evening.

Donovans has been a wonderful Melbourne institution for many years, and I have always enjoyed the experience. I will be going back again and again, a beautiful, fun and special restaurant, with views of our spectacular bay. A great restaurant, to visit any time of the year, for any special occasion, or simply to enjoy good food, not complicated, and wonderul attention from the team.

Been here many times and last night was equally as good. The food was excellent and the service exceptional. The views are outstanding but sadly the pricing has started to outstrip what you get for your money. It costs a lot to eat here and it’s almost worth it but I have to say, I come here for the view. Our server though was 11/10.

Ordered the Signature Porterhouse for the second time and it was just as amazing as I remember. The service at Walter's is always warm and prompt and the staff were extremely accommodating with my dietary requirements. Oh and the cocktails... perfect and consistent every time. Special mention to Larissa who looked after our table! Thank you for making the evening extra special.
