Across from the beautiful Botanic Gardens in the Grand Old Dame that housed the institutional Lynch's Restaurant for over 30 years, Entrecôte seems as home in Melbourne as it does Paris. Entrecôte exclusively serves beautiful Pasture fed beef from Hopkins River, from the foothills of the Grampians in Victoria Entrecôte - we want her to be loud, ridiculous, tongue in cheek, delicious, fun, local, raucous,approachable, lovable, drunk, open all hours.. but above all - full of laughter and friends sharing ameal over many (several) glasses of wine....
