Vanilla Lounge is a mainstay of the Eaton Mall strip in Oakleigh, Melbourne. And, within a few moments of wandering on in you will not struggle to see why.

Vanilla's ground level is one of those great and vibrant spaces that manages to have an abundant energy - yet not feel crowded or overwhelming. Instead, perhaps with a view towards the great immigrant tradition of Oakleigh, the vibe is one that's warm and familial.

For those fortunate to have ever attended a gathering at a Greek home you'll find the menu on offer at Vanilla familiar, as it is diverse, plentiful, and evocative in the finest Hellenic tradition. Indeed this is apparent just looking at just a glimpse of what's on offer.

Alongside the variety of food on offer, the chance to hear some live music - as well as keep an eye on the big TV should a crucial and close game on - renders the lower level of Vanilla Lounge a great spot to spend some hours across an evening.

Yet, for those keen on a quieter and more considered night out, Vanilla also has an upper level. Known as Vanilla Upstairs, this newly redesigned section of the restaurant is bright, airy and looks out wonderfully over Oakleigh and the wider South-East suburbs of Melbourne.

Alongside a new menu upstairs - that offers dishes like Pasta Al Forno, Hervey Bay Scallops and Coal Fired Octopus Salad - a particular drawcard of the upper level is the dedicated list of country-by-country Cocktails on offer. If you keen to try some of the regional tastes across Europe herein lies a chance to do, and in vibrant surrounds. Further, alongside the diversity of the cocktail menu there is a well stocked bar so if your keen on a Jameson or merely a good and dependable glass of beer; you'll be sure to find something on the drinks list to your liking.
