Treating yourself to a succulent steak is the epitome of an excellent dinner out.
Simply sit down and relax as professional chefs prepare and cook your steak exactly how you like it, order a variety of sides that tickle your fancy, and either match your own wine or chat to the expert sommeliers for a recommended pairing.
The only true difficulty is choosing the best steak restaurant to go to. Fortunately, there are many excellent restaurants in Melbourne that serve exceptional steaks – here are five of the best to choose from.
The Meat & Wine Co
The Meat & Wine Co is a beloved steak restaurant in Melbourne and across Australia. With Afro-centric dining and a passion for premium steak, this is a home-away-from-home dining experience that you won’t find anywhere else.
The AGED program is at the heart of the steak dining experience. Inspired by the growing interest in aged steak and reducing waste, The Meat & Wine Co has created an exclusive aging program that makes aged beef more flavourful than ever. Think – Truffle-infused Monte Ribeye or why not a cut that’s been infused with 14-day slow-cooked black garlic? There is nothing else like the AGED program.
For something more traditional, The Meat & Wine Co also offers classic premium steaks, including our own exclusive line of grass and grain-fed Monte beef, as well as shorthorn and wagyu. All of this is complemented by a full wine list, a la carte menu, and exceptionally friendly service. Book a table now.
France Soir is a small Melbourne restaurant with a big reputation. A mainstay in the city since 1986, France Soir is styled after a Parisian bistro and is deliciously old-fashioned as it sticks to classic cuisine foundations.
From snails swimming in garlic butter to oysters and terrines, there’s plenty to celebrate on this unabashedly French menu, but the steaks are the piece de la resistance. The beef is all pasture fed and comes from O’Connor in South East Gippsland just down the road, and comes in a range of cuts to suit all tastes.
Angus & Bon
Angus & Bon can be found in the gorgeous century-old post office building in Prahran, where it styles itself after New York establishments with a casual yet elegant aesthetic.
Their cooking style of choice is the classic wood grill, which gives their steaks a succulent char finish. Opt for an aged ribeye or scotch fillet, or try a selection of grass fed local beef that melts in the mouth with endless flavour and flawless texture.
Angus & Bon is an easy option for a relaxed meal at one of the most trendy restaurants in Melbourne.
A Hereford Beefstouw
A Hereford Beefstouw is a renowned steak place in Melbourne, where it is known for pairing premium beef with a Nordic approach to cuisine, and an artistic approach to plating.
A restaurant group that operates across Australia, A Hereford Beefstouw has long worked with artists and designers to create a uniquely artistic dining experience. The beef itself is premium and succulent, and the menu as a whole focuses on fresh, seasonal and cool-climate produce for a Nordic dining experience that’s also felt through the furniture, decor, and interior design.
Steer Dining Room
Steer Dining Room is another exquisite beef experience featuring Australian Wagyu, Black Angus, and Hereford beef, all with an Asian influence.
The signature dish here is the wagyu degustation option. Steak lovers can opt for a seven-course experience, complete with snacks, five courses of wagyu dishes, and a cheese or dessert to finish. You can also order the wine matching program for the full experience.
The vast range of steak options is supported by a warm and sophisticated restaurant atmosphere, where you can relax and enjoy the surroundings and the joy that comes from great company and even better food.
