Located in Rutherglen’s historic Main Street, grace. by milkin kitchen is the kind of place for a working breakfast, a first date, grab an after work aperitif, or have a long and possibly boozy friday lunch. Part restaurant, part deli, part pantry, part bar. Turning out dishes that lean European with a dash of Melbourne.

                    Very special well balanced flavours in every plate of food. Relaxed atmosphere and attentive service. Loved the seared swordfish. Some excellent wines by the glass to choose from.

                    Delicious meal, generously-sized side dishes. The gnocchi was so soft & light. If only I'd had space for dessert! Booking online was simple. Good follow up communication from grace by milkin kitchen. Easy to find. Quick, friendly service. If it is a nice day, try to get a table in the courtyard.

                    We have enjoyed a number of meals at Grace, as a couple or in a group of four, which usually means a number of different dishes are selected from the menu. But last night was different, as the four of us all decided on the same entrees and mains. The cured Ocean Trout entree and Barramundi main were both excellent dishes and thoroughly enjoyed by all 4. Matt and Paddy are great Chefs! We chose a Scion Rose' which must have matched well as we managed a second bottle. A great evening and pleasing for us as locals to be able to share this local gem with visiting friends from out of town.

                    Has quickly become a regular breakfast destination. Engaging and friendly staff, great coffee (and chai tea), and delicious food. Almost too good to review as it’s bound to become busier. Get in while you can!

                    Great atmosphere and the place looks great. The food was amazing, the staff friendly and efficient. We were called in early due to the short notice of lockdown which were grateful for. Great express service to be out by 1pm 😂

                    Grace, the dining experience we've all been craving. From then moment you sit down Erica and Katie take the reins and guide you into a stunning lunch. Grab a local wine or a inventive cocktail to pair with Matt's epic food menu. Highlights truffle potatoes, NSW oysters and the bisque. Absolutely faultless, thanks team.

                    A lovely old building, refurbished to house a modern Restaurant and Bar. Very stylish and pleasing to the eye. The Menu was quite extensive with a broad range to choose from. We chose the 3 course option and found each to be very good. The wine list was very good, unsurprisingly featuring wines from a number of the local Rutherglen wine makers. Our visit was on the opening night, but despite it being quite busy, the wait for each course was within normal expectations. We had a great evening and will definitely return.
