The Waiters Restaurant
Introduction: Formerly The Italian Waiters Club. Pretty much unchanged for the last 20 years in Myer Place near the top end of Bourke St.
Ambience Generally crowded at the top of a narrow stairway (20 stairs) Bare tables variety of chairs which would likely not sell at a garage sale. Eclectic clientel.
Service: Pleasant enthusiastic more like Uni students than full timers.
Food: Better than good! Oxtail was excellent as was the Salmon Steak and Chicken Livers. Spaghetti marinara was passable and substantial Veal schnitzel and Veal scallopini were a bit ordinary. The vegetables were nothing to write home about.
The tartuffo was very good as were the pancakes.
Mains $16 to $22 Desserts About $7
Wine BYO or $5 by the glass
Price: about $50 for two
Comments: Something of a City treasure Value for money
