Sometimes, picturesqueness has to win out over convenience. Madeline's Restaurant at Jells Park is hardly in a central location, but its surroundings are ideal for a relaxing Sunday afternoon. Situated in the heart of Jells Park and with large windows overlooking Jells Lake, Madeline's has a very pleasing aspect.

The service is a little slow here, but when you have such a relaxing view it doesn't matter so much. The food is well-presented and there is an interesting variety of loose-leaf teas.

Madeline's is available for weddings and functions, and can arrange marquees, jumping castles, and the like. Jells Park is popular with runners and bike riders. Madeline's is a pleasant end to a ride in the park.

If you live in the South East of Melbourne, Madeline's is worth a visit. Visit their website for a full menu and information on booking functions. Madeline's is located in Jells Park, Waverley Road, Wheelers Hill 3150.

Went there for lunch today with friends after a bike ride. The BLT was good. The coffee took ages to arrive and was cold. Staff were rude, belligerent, uncooperative and confrontational. All in all not a pleasant experience. Don't go there.
