Went for dinner because I was craving a proper steak, and that's exactly what I got. It perfectly satiated my craving. The steak itself (I got the filet mignon) was thick, perfectly cooked medium rare - incredibly tasty, tender, juicy meat with enough texture to have "melt in your mouth" feel, while still making you feel like you were eating steak.

The baby potatoes on the side were the perfect accompaniment.

Highly recommend visiting here for an exceptional steak

We came here for lunch on a Sunday. I had their BBQ Parma, pretty tasty and the chicken wasn't overly thick and not dry. The bacon on top was a nice addition to it. The portion was a good size. At $39.90 this is the most expensive Parma I've ever had.

For dessert, we had the Chocolate Fondant and Classic Cheesecake, both extremely small sizes for $12.90 each. While they were both tasty, I found this to be very overpriced for the portion.

For a pub style venue and the prices being charged for no table service, I give this place 4 stars. I would expect to pay these prices at a restaurant where they would at least take my order at my table.

Called in for dessert and a affogato, and wasn't disappointed at all, nice greeting on arrival and excellent service. Well done to the staff.

Great to visit this very old charming pub again after many years, and to see it so well patronised, mostly office workers. A wonderful lively outdoor space and equally lively bar inside. It was midweek but felt like a Friday night! Staff very busy. Luckily we got a table for dinner. Food was typical pub fare. Visitors to Melbourne might enjoy finding this little piece of history tucked away amongst the multistories.

Great Tavern bar with nice indoor design.
The good place to be for drinks with your friends. Lots tables and seats outdoor all around.
Love it!

Situated in one of Melbourne's alleyways, The Mitre Tavern provides ample space both outside and inside. It's a great spot for a pub meal and attracts a large number of office workers.

I highly recommend the Parma, though the steak can be hit-or-miss during peak hours.

The staff are friendly and always ready to assist.

Great old time pub vibes. If you're popping by for drinks then it's a good casual place.
The food was okay. The halloumi fries and Guiness pie was good but the other dishes were okay for pub food.
Please note that the review is based on the bistro food and not the steakhouse which is on the second floor.

In middle of skyscrapers, in an alley is this old small tavern serving beers and smallish menu of different foods. It is really cool gem. I got myself a steak with best potato I have ever eaten. Minor negative came from initial confusion of ordering the food from the bar. The garlic bread side that I ordered was bit of meh. But did hit the spot still.

This is the oldest pub in Melbourne. Right in the heart of Melbourne but feels like it's in its own little world. I sat in the courtyard and forgot that I was in the middle of a busy city. Steak sandwich was delicious. The alcoholic drinks selection was big.

Came here for an easy dinner a little while ago. Good atmosphere and reasonably size menu. I really wanted a steak and when I ordered it was told they only do medium-rare (not sure why)-but it was still delicious. Got a pint and sat down at an inside table but wasn't clear which were reserved and which not, but wasn't really a problem. The 200g porterhouse was very well priced ($32) and came with chips and a delicious pepper sauce that wasn't too heavy, creamy, or spicy. Definitely recommend this place!

Steak was perfectly cooked. Service was fabulous and well paced. The size of the sides was huge, definitely able to be shared with 3-4 others.
The building had a lovely heritage feel and we felt immersed in the history of old town Melbourne

Amazing dinner up in the steakhouse. Three of us went, with two of us getting the share plate and the other getting the gourmet sausages and mash. Everything was amazing, and I'd definitely recommend getting the share plate if there's two of you wanting steak, as it comes with chips and a salad as well.

Had the chocolate mousse for dessert which was delectable as well. Only thing that would have made it better would be if the mushy peas were made the more traditional way, instead of being still left whole, but would 100% visit next time I'm in Melbourne ?

Came here for some desserts and drinks, and a place to chill and talk amongst friends and was not disappointed. Has a nice authentic rustic vibe. The desserts were dirt cheap and I was surprised with its presentation. A nice variety of tap beer and single malt and blended whiskies on offer.

Went here for dinner after a business trip and enjoyed some drinks down in the pub area which is a great space to relax and unwind. Then went upstairs for tea and it was like waking into another building. The upstairs dining area is well appointed and a great spot to eat. I had a medium rate scotch filtet and I can honestly, without a shadow of doubt, say that it was the best steak I have ever had. It was a thinner steak but was perfectly cooked as medium rare and the flavor was out of this world. I enjoyed every mouthful and the sides were a great accompaniment to the food. Excellent service and drinks just took it over the top!

A sensational experience with kind, quick service. The selection of steaks are great and cooked to perfection. The whole feel of the restaurant is also amazing and adds to the feel of the overall experience. I don't necessarily think the prices are worth it for the quality, but it's definitely an extremely nice place to visit, none the less.

The Mitre Tavern has an interesting History and sitting upstairs almost felt like going back in time!
It's a got a nice romantic vibe to it!
The wine menu by glass is limited but good options. They have an extensive bottle menu though.
The staff are knowledgeable and can suggest good food options.
All their house made sauces and mustards are Gluten Free which was great as most sauces contain Gluten so I'm normally limited to a Pepper sauce! Having something different was awesome. Also the Fillet Mignon I ordered was well cooked and the sauce was delicious so much so that I had to ask for more!
The Button Mushrooms and Thyme were a nice starter.
The highlight was having 2 Gluten Free Desserts that were delicious ?
The chocolate mousse was excellent but the Creme Brulee was the best I've had anywhere in the world.
The only negative part of the night was the waitress asking if we wanted to tip and had already added a tip to round off to 60 though we asked to round off to 50 and said the machine was working properly ?
Overall a great meal, great ambience and good staff barring the forced Tip. I'll definitely be going back sometime.

Okay this review is not about the drink as I didn't go for the alcohol eventhough it is a pub. I was there on a Monday night 6pm and wow, it was busy! Must be people going for drink after work.. we were there at the back of the building having a private section. I give it good review for the calamari that I had. I was impressed, I didn't think pub food can be good! The fish and chips though not something I would order here. And thanks for the salad!!
