A new bar and restaurant has opened in Altona Meadows and Mamma says it is stylish and spacious and definitely one to check out. The menu looks great with lots of good options for brekkie, lunch and dinner!
Graze Bar and Restaurant is a family owned and is run by locals so they have a firm hand on what their neigbours are looking for in terms of food and their modern Italian style menu is designed to cater to local tastes and tums!
For the families - there is a large main dining space which is handy for prams, the service is great and there is a specific 'under 12' menu with lots of good choices - there are also highchairs for little bubs. Oh and the 'family' sized sharing sundaes are amazing...not that Mamma like to share her sundaes all that much!
Mamma's special mentions: Altona Meadows Libary and Learning Centre is around the corner and a great space to spend some time!
