Now open at 176 Little Lonsdale St, Melbourne.

Welcome to The Moat. Check out our new menu for 2014 - then, come and try it.

Situated below the Wheeler Centre, The Moat Bar & Café offers Melbourne a new perspective on eating and drinking.

With its unique courtyard and the hefty, time-worn bluestone walls that support this iconic 19th Century building, The Moat establishes an atmosphere unlike any other. Boasting an interior designed by Christo Gillard, we pay homage to the nostalgia and intellect of the building whilst also catering to the whimsy and fantasy of the fiction housed above.

Our food and wine is curated with the utmost care and passion. We offer our customers a simple yet delicious menu and a considered drinks list.

Enjoy our wonderful Espresso Syndicate coffee and Somage teas — all Fairtrade and organic.

There's Cricketers Arms on tap and, to keep your thoughts rolling, a book exchange program.

Read our reviews in The Age and City Weekly.

We're open and keen to welcome you from 8am 'til late from Monday to Friday, and 3pm 'til late on Saturdays. Bookings are essential for Saturday nights.
