Private dining rooms combine the best of both worlds: the food and service of a restaurant, and the privacy and relaxed atmosphere of your own home. You'll pay handsomely for it, but for a birthday or other celebration to remember, these spots can't be beaten. The best bit? No one has to do the dishes.

Minamishima

There are three private dining rooms at Melbourne's best Japanese restaurant. The incredible food is undoubtedly the star here, and the only menu option is a degustation. If that's the kind of private dining experience you're looking for, you won't find better.

Cumulus Up Wine Bar

The Wine Room seats 20 people. And it’s one of the cleverest private dining rooms in Melbourne because the walls surrounding it are floor-to-ceiling windows. That means the room manages to feel like part of Cumulus Up, but it's also private enough for an intimate function.
