Barbarino and Wong
Introduction: On St.Kilda Road, originally an American style rib restaurant took on an Asian element and added Wong to its name many years ago
Ambience: Amiable comfortable and no strain to have a conversation.
Service: Attentive and prompt.
Food: "Middle of the road" Substantial size meals. Oysters Mornay had more butter than cheese but tasted delicious. Ribs are excellent. Baked whole baby Snapper eqally so. No frills and plenty of seafood in the seafood noodle dish. Caesar salad is huge. Mudcake was exceptionally light and the Mango dessert scrumptious!
Wine: Modest but adequate range and price
Price: Two courses for two about $70
Comments: This is one of those places where perhaps you get more than you pay for. Good value
