The Best Hotel Restaurants in Melbourne For Stylish Dining

Whether you're staying the night or simply passing through, the best hotel restaurants in Melbourne hold strong as dining destinations in their own right.

Luci at Hilton Melbourne Little Queen Street

Say goodbye to those prejudiced notions of hotel dining deemed inferior to standalone eateries, and say hello to the new wave of hotel restaurants burgeoning in the city.

You'll find them in many of Melbourne's best hotels; and they are all destinations in their own right, whether you’re spending the night or just passing through.

Forget room service and lacklustre eats. Instead, prepare for gastronomic delight in the same vein as any of Melbourne's best restaurants.

These are best hotel restaurants in Melbourne for stylish wining and dining. 

Langlands Restaurant & Bar

Langlands Restaurant & Bar

Langlands Restaurant & Bar in the recently refurbed Hyatt Centric Melbourne is the perfect spot for after-work drinks, catch-ups with friends or a cosy date night.

Dive into a luxurious modern Australian menu that heroes fresh ingredients from local farmers and producers. Indulge in starters including anchovy toast with burrata and tomato relish and smoky eggplant on crusty sourdough.

For something larger, Hazeldene's free-range chicken with chilli sambal, celeriac & apple slaw is delightful.

Hyatt Centric Melbourne, Level 25/25 Downie Street, Melbourne

La Madonna

La Madonna at Next Hotel

Dining decadence can be found on the third level of Next Hotel. La Madonna is golden-lit and cavernous, serving up riffs on Italian classics, as well as less obvious offerings.

Treat yourself to a barrel-aged Negroni and share a plate of oysters at the bar, then proceed into the depths of the restaurant to graze in a quiet corner, or sink into a booth for an intimate dinner.

The wine list favours Italian varietals, and the food menu is packed with flavours that are simple but striking. Buon appetito!

Luci at Hilton Melbourne LQS

Hidden within the Hilton Melbourne Little Queen Street, Luci's contemporary Australian menu nods to Melbourne's European accents and is designed to celebrate quality ingredients.

As the dining room buzzes beneath majestic marble columns, feast on fare like pumpkin arancini, squid ink spaghetti and fish of the day with eggplant puree. Be sure to save room for dessert - the coconut moose looks particularly decadent.

18 Little Queen Street, Melbourne 

Strato at Oakwood Premier Melbourne 

Fine dining is taken to new heights (literally) at Strato, a sophisticated 60-seat restaurant located on the 40th floor of Oakwood Premier Melbourne, serving up sensational views, swanky LA vibes and a multi-sensorial experience.

The menu is inspired by seasonality and the five elements, bringing the best of the atmosphere (air), the hydrosphere (water), the cryosphere (ice and permafrost), the lithosphere (earth’s upper rocky layer) and the biosphere (living things) to each plate.

With attached sister venue Sky Bar equally as enticing for a pre-or-post dinner tipple, the entire venue is set to blow you away - making this one of the best hotel restaurants in Melbourne.

Lona Misa at Ovolo South Yarra 

Shannon Martinez, the queen of Melbourne’s vegan scene, has a blockbuster venue in South Yarra’s sleek Ovolo Hotel - and it's a rebellious renaissance from root to stem.

Lona Misa is an all-day plant-based diner that transforms from café to restaurant to wine bar with ease. Start the morning with granola, or book in for a Latin-inspired dinner.

Ms Parker at The Motley

The Motley is bringing a new level of sophistication to Richmond, without compromising Melbourne’s eclectic and authentic feel, and Ms Parker is the bustling ground floor cafe and fine dining restaurant sitting pretty within.

It's an eclectic dining destination patterned with diverse textures and flavours, interwoven with history and character.

You might start the day with a breakfast pavlova and coffee, then when dinner rolls around move on to dishes of freshly shucked oysters, truffled chicken risotto and crispy whiting, all washed down with a Yarra Valley Pinot Noir, of course.
