Restaurants - Carlton, VIC
The Astor is a Modern Australian restaurant located in the street of Carlton, Victora . We love to serve amazing food at affordable prices. Come visit us!
In 1925 Hotel Astor opened its doors, serving food and beverages to the people of Carlton. Over the next 100 years, it has been re-named and reinvigorated many times.
In 2015 The Astor returned to its roots, taking up its original name and reinventing once more – this time to a new a new unique dining restaurant and bar that’s bringing fun back to food and Melbourne pubs.
Our front public bar offers a relaxing, cozy and intimate spot to drink craft beer, sip on cocktails and wine with friends and snack on our bar menu.
The Roving Marrow dining room is the Astor’s restaurant. The name combines the concepts of ‘travelling in search of adventure’ and ‘heart, core, spirit and soul’. And the trolley style service on Sunday also reflects how we feel about dining it should be fun and unpretentious.
Our menu is entirely dependent on the seasons. The dining room offers quality artisan ingredients. All produce, including meat and seafood, comes from small growers and farmers who where possible practice ethical and sustainable methods.
Due to the seasonality and innovative use of produce we can offer an evolving menu, so every visit delivers something different.
On Sundays, you can try a little of everything with unlimited Yum Cha European style. Our chef specialties are wheeled around, allowing you to choose with all your senses.
Our wine list includes locally sourced wine, a smattering of European options and a number of boutique natural wine varieties from vineyards practicing little intervention.
Our cocktail list has been curated c/o our friend Mike Enright of the Barber Shop Sydney, resulting in a lively selection of mixes.
