The fine dining room with the reputation upstairs remains; at River Level the action is much less formal.
The Food is still amazing, but this is an all-day eatery and bar.
The iconic corner with the best people watching seats in Melbourne calls for the same amazing produce
in the food but a more casual menu, for unplanned eating and drinking; any time.
Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner 7 days. Drinks any time.
“The menu is appealingly simple, the ingredients are stellar, the execution is exemplary. . . the window seats at the enormous concrete counters on Southgate’s western corner should rival the Flinders Street Station clocks as an iconic meeting place.”
Dani Valent, The Sunday Age, January 2018

We can trace our world class produce to ethical farmers, fishermen and artisan producers,
in Tasmania, King Island and Flinders Island, who all enjoy the luxury of the cleanest seas,
the lushest fields and most pristine air measured on the planet.
Our ethos is reinforced with regular visits to the apple isle to meet with these farmers and producers,
people we know by name and call our friends, and by taking the time to discover their stories where we share a common philosophy.
We choose products that have been farmed in an ethical manner using methods that nourish the animals and the environment. Our suppliers speak the truth about how their food is grown from one season to another and seek to continually improve. Ethical farming is principally about animal welfare and respect for the land; treating livestock as animals
.. not numbers.
We believe food should be produced, processed and eaten in ways that provide social benefits. It should contribute to thriving local economies, that create good jobs and secure livelihoods. It should enhance the health and variety of both plants and animals, protect natural resources such as water and soil, and help to tackle climate change.
We think food tastes better when you know where it comes from. Pure South Dining continues the practice we started over 13 years ago of seeking out, supporting and building close relationships with small, specialist growers and producers. It helps you trace what’s on your plate back to its place of origin and understand how it has been grown and harvested. It gives you the confidence to know what you are eating.
