(Melbourne) Squisito Bar

IMG_2379

Squisito Bar is located inside QV, which is at the heart of the CBD and easily accessible, and situated behind Schnitz. I assumed that since the mall is normally bustling with people, the restaurant would be very crowded and noisy as well, but it turned out to be relaxing and peaceful instead. I was very impressed with the quality and price of the dishes here – the food are delicious yet reasonably-priced, if not lower compared to other places. Customers can make online reservations as well on the restaurant’s website, to avoid having to wait in line.


 – General Review –

  •  Service: 9/10

Very friendly service, helpful, prompt, and attentive. There were quite a number of staff around, so they were able to cater to the customers efficiently.

  • Servicescape: 8.4/10

Servicescape was nice – the medium-sized restaurant was well-lit and displayed simple decorations and furnishing. With soft, instrumental music playing in the background, the atmosphere was relaxing and comfortable. You can also see the kitchen at the corner, so customers can see what’s going on “backstage”, although some would prefer not to.

1) Cappuccino:

Pretty much flawless – amazing coffee and beautifully presented.

2) King Risotto:

I appreciate how they separated the cheese so that customers can add it to their own tastes. The King Risotto was a rich dish, so I thought the portion was quite appropriate. The dish was also very generous with the prawns, which were really fresh.

3) Big Breakie:

One of the best “Big Breakfast”s I had as far as I can remember. The soft poached eggs were done perfectly and the mushrooms were sauteed well. The bacon and Italian sausage were kind of salty, but they’re delicious anyway. The spinach were fresh and drizzled with olive oil. The bread was a little too toasted so it was a little hard to cut and eat. The roasted tomatoes were great though, and added hints of sourness to create a dynamic flavor for the dish. The portion of the dish was generous as well and considering the price and quality, it’s worth every single penny.
