Ripping good lunch at #Ripponlea Food and Wine, #melbourne

Ripponlea Food and Wine is one of our favourite Sunday lunch restaurants in Melbourne. With its Art Deco inspired style, beautiful emerald green velvet booths and brushed metal fixtures it oozes a classy style without being too formal or fancy.

The revitalised menu is similarly inviting featuring a range of small and large sharing plates and fabulous desserts. Nothing too fancy, comfort food with a modern twist. Great, friendly service and a good wine list and interesting cocktails.

Lunch today was absolutely perfect, hitting the spot with a delicious combination of flavours and textures, beautifully put together and nothing too heavy or rich. A lovely lunch to end our quick overnight trip to Melbourne.
