The Meat & Wine Co, Melbourne

Rating: 11100
By far, The Meat and Wine Co. at Queensbridge Square, Freshwater Place (9696 5333) was the most expensive meal that I've had during my short visit in Melbourne and I'm not sure the cost is justified.

As the server suggested, I had the 300g milk fed veal (AUD$39) and a glass of Cockfighter's Merlot ($8.50). The meat was tender with lots of fat and the spicy wine was a great combination but at those prices, I was expecting something at least at the level of Cottonwood Grille's steak, but this was just above average.

Three pawikan points. If you're looking for value for money, then this isn't the place to be. Plus points for the classy dimly lit interiors and the waiters who know their meat and wine.
