La Barca Ristorante & Wine Bar is a stunning restaurant set within the spacious grounds of the Goodman Arts Centre. Elegant, understated, and reminiscent of Milanese chic, no detail was overlooked in the design and furnishing of the space. The tables and sofas are original designs for La Barca and the chairs are by the legendary Viennese furniture maker Michael Thonet. Even the light bulbs were sourced from Sweden, to ensure the perfect ambience for its patrons. ‘La Barca’ – the Italian word for ‘boat,’ was so named due to the shape of the site that it is situated on. La Barca is helmed by Chef Michele Sorrentino. Chef Michele was the chef and owner of Antica Trattoria Botteganova in Siena, Italy until he sold it in 2009. Chef Michele received his Michelin star in 1999 and maintained it throughout the lifetime of his restaurant.

Café Melba, a bespoke concept owned and operated by Tadcaster Hospitality, presents an ultimate casual all-day dining experience, a tranquil escape away from the bustling hectic city. Located within the luscious green compounds of Goodman Arts Centre, Café Melba is blend of influences from Melbourne (MELB) and Asia (A) with interpretations of Australasian dishes. Once the former basketball court nestled within the community of Goodman Arts Centre in front of Block M; a vision of Tony Coughlan, he conceptualized Café Melba with neutral palettes to complement the environment alongside the lush green field under tall and ancient shade trees. As Tony puts it, "it is a place I want to be and get lost in our busy hectic city".
