Decadent food in a casual ambience. Reserve a seat in the dining area, or walk in and try your luck in finding a place at the bar. Relax and let the experience begin. From attentive and knowledgeable waiters, to a menu comprising of a variety of mouth-watering French-Vietnamese fusion-inspired tapas-style dishes to share, Coda will not disappoint as one of Melbourne's best.
Coda, Souffle and icecream #BED
What we recommend - a Bombay Extra Dry martini and oysters shucked to order while you browse through the menu of mostly sharing dishes. While larger dishes, such as roasted yellow duck curry, or a sizzling plate of prawns with king brown mushrooms, sound equally tempting, you may be wiser to stick with ordering more of the exciting smaller dishes.
Mix up Asian and European flavours with a selection of delights, such as spanner crab on a betel leaf with galangal and roasted chilli; tempura bugs with caramelised chilli; yellow fin tuna, daikon, and apple salad; and steak tartare and quail egg, with mustard cress and caper melba toasts. Leave room for the indulgent chocolate lover's dream: dark chocolate dèlice, or the must-have souffle and ice-cream.
Open seven days for lunch, from midday to 3pm; and for dinner 6pm to 10:30pm. Reservations highly recommended, however patrons without a booking can enjoy the full menu in the bar.
Drop in for a quick and drink and light bite before a show, or spend a long evening enjoying great food, wine, and service. Perfect for dates, solo diners, or groups of up to 10.
