I adore Smith and Daughters, it's a wonderful food experience, I've been many times and on each occasion the food has blown me away! The desserts are a MUST! The food is elegant, enjoyable and guilt free!
Everyone was super friendly, The food amazing. left a good happy full! Am going back to try more of their amazing menu!
Smith and Daugters .. you never let us down. Always great quality food and service. Couldn’t resist a trip to the deli after brunch too!
The best brunch as always. This place will never let me down with my lust for scrumptious food!
Was my second time to Smith and Daughter's and loved it as much as the first time. Took my (non vegan) hubby and he loved it! Our favourite meals were the saffron squid and beef ragu. Highly recommend Smith and Daughters to all - especially those who think vegan or vegetarian food is boring. This place takes vegan to a whole new (taste and look) level.
The food tasted amazing & the service was excellent. However the food was pretty much cold when it was served. I was disappointed as I was looking forward to our visit as i regularly visit smith and deli and I heard so much about S&D so I was underwhelmed with the food being cold.
While we were eating dinner, unfortunately we had two unwelcome cockroaches climbing up the ledge we were seated next too aswell. I didn’t want to make a scene at the time but it was very unpleasant. When we saw the second one, I alerted the staff who came and grabbed it. It was pretty gross.
Unbelievably good. Best vegan food ever. The chef is a genius.
Smith & Bella continues to deliver outstanding amazing vegan foods. This latest menu is indulgent
Absolutely outstanding (as always!) but the Italian menu is superb!! Best food I have ever eaten, I’ve been thinking about it for days. YUM!
The food was nice, but I wouldn’t rave about it. The menu on offer on the night was different to what’s currently on the website - preferred the selection on the website one. Tables were waaaaay too close together - very uncomfortable! Service was very friendly and fast. Very attentive refilling water glasses etc.
Some of the best tasting food I’ve ever had...! The staff are all super friendly and accommodating...!
Amazing food, service and atmosphere- the best vegan resteraunt in Melbourne
ABSOLUTELY OUTSTANDING DISHES!! Love love love love looooove the new add ons to the menu! The best food, so delicious, so filling and I would come back just for the vodka red sauce & meatballs. Service is always friendly and everything came out super quick! Plus grab one of their amazing cocktails, you won’t regret it! Cannot wait to be back for dinner real soon!!
I’ve seen and tasted many attempts at faux meats before and they’ve never been any good. I would have argued that I was eating actual meat if I didn’t know otherwise. I’m basically a carnivore and all of the food was fantastic. I’m not sure what sort of voodoo you are doing in that kitchen but keep it up.
I've been to Smith & Daughters a few times now and this would have to be the pinnacle of those positive experiences. The food was amazing and staff were very informative and friendly. I take my hat off to them for a great dining experience.
Absolutely amazing as always and I cannot say how much I look forward to coming back to this place every single week!
Amazing vegan food. The beef ragu was amazing - dehydrated mushroom !
As a vegetarian, prefer delicious fresh vegetable creations over seemingly overly processed meat imitations, just not enough there for me. We left hungry, not wanting to order more. Nice ambience though.
I was deeply disappointed by my first experience of smith & daughters. The music was horrifically loud for a Tuesday night get together and our meals were just meh. Will not be returning.
Super tasty, creative, fun menu served by the loveliest, thoughtful staff. Can’t recommend this place enough!!
I love Smith & Daughters, and over time, they have introduced new menus which i have enjoyed! Whilst I am always in awe, and always look forward to experiencing the food there ( S&D innovates with vegan, as no OTHER!), I was particularly disappointed with their new Italian menu... really wish they would have stayed with the Spanish cuisine. But, for the record: the Ragu beef and polenta is a damn good rendition of "carne guisada"; but, the artichoke/brussel sprouts dish, no so appetizing.
The staff is always second to none. Thank you. A girl from Brooklym who lives DownUnder
Their “feast me” food option at $30 per head (brunch menu) for a group of 4 isn’t good value, because they brought out only 5 small plates which if purchased individually would have been cheaper to order.
Nevertheless the food was tasty, and as a new vegan I thoroughly enjoyed their meaty, cheesy vegan alternatives.
Visited Melbourne for a Vegan Foodie Weekend and Smith and Daughters was hands down the best highlight. The service was phenomenal and genuinely kind. We had to go back for tiramisu once we let our lunch settle! Looking forward for another trip so we can eat here again!
The food was absolutely INCREDIBLE! Better than expected. And the service was completely on par with the food. We can’t wait to visit again!
Seriously the best place ever! No place I’d rather eat :)
I try to come here whenever I visit as they update their menu often so I never eat the same thing! Everything is always amazing and I love that everything is vegan instead of just one or two options. The desserts are definitely always the highlight of the night.
Never get sick of this place! Even great if you are not a vegan!
Amazingly awesome food …. fantastic atmosphere Would definitely return and recommend Smith and Daughters :-)
Food was delish and we had fun guessing what the ‘meat’ components were. However, waiter said our four choices were not too much but we struggled to finish - cheeky to then ask if we wanted dessert!
Was a great night! The food, service and atmosphere were all brilliant! Would highly recommend to anyone looking for something different, you wont regret it!
Thank you so much for a lovely evening! I brought my mum and dad to Smith and daughters and we had a lovely dinner. My parents aren't vegan (or even vegetarian), but the enjoyed all the food. Mum particularly liked the music. Fantastic service, the staff were all lovely, friendly and prompt. Mum said she will bring one of her friends for lunch soon!
Amazing service and food! Definitely recommend and will be returning.
Smith & Daughters is a fantastic restaurant with eye-catching decor, friendly staff, and an amazing menu of beautiful and delicious food. Aside from being reasonably priced and well-portioned, the meals are 100% Vegan. I would highly recommended Smith & Daughters for anyone to try, vegan and non-vegan alike.
Smith and Daughters is always a favourite, but I've got to say it, but i preferred the latin / spanish cuisine! It just felt more innovative / exciting - these flavours are much more accessible already.
Nothing better than sitting outside on a sunny day enjoying all the delicious brunch menu items. I swear every time I go there the scramble gets better and better. Plus the coffee is amazing and get their version of a Nutella hot chocolate! Food to die for!!
I ate here a while ago and it was so amazing. The new menu was horrible. We did not eat any of the food. I you are not a vegan just go somewhere else.
The new menu is amazing, everything was delicious and the service is outstanding
We came to Smith & Daughters for a special dinner for my 10 year old for his pre heart surgery surprise. He was so happy & excited & the staff made him feel so welcome! We’re from Adelaide but frequent Melbourne & will definitely be coming back. The most delicious food & lovely atmosphere. Favourite restaurant!
The best scramble to indeed ever exist. Cannot not order it. And the breakfast pizza is absolutely the best thing ever. Coffee is always outstanding too. It’s so relaxing sitting outside on a sunny day and taking in all of Fitzroy with the best cruelty free food out there. Nothing but spectacular.
I promise you this restaurant is the greatest vegan restaurant in the whole wide world. The food is always excellent, as well as the service. Also Mo is a legend. I love Smith and Daughters and cannot imagine that would ever change!
