With its unique courtyard and the hefty, time-worn bluestone walls that support this iconic 19th Century building, The Moat establishes an atmosphere unlike any other. Boasting an interior designed by Christo Gillard, The Moat pays homage to the nostalgia and intellect of the building whilst also catering to the whimsy and fantasy of the fiction housed above. The food and wine are curated with the utmost care and passion. An intimate haven in the heart of Melbourne, the Moat offers customers a simple yet delicious menu and a considered drinks list. A cosy restaurant with a lovely ambience, a hidden gem with delicious Italian food and excellent service. Enjoy the wonderful coffee and tea selection — all fairtrade and organic. There are two rotating draft beers on tap and, to keep your thoughts rolling, a program of literary and art-inspired events.
