Showcasing Melbourne's stellar skyline with its 180 degree view of the CBD, Yarra River and the Arts Precinct, Taxi Kitchen is the gem in Federation Square's crown.
Our food is accessible and affordable yet rustic and plentiful. Created with the highest quality produce and complimented by a concise and relevant wine list, our team of professionals deliver a relaxed and quality experience without the pretence.
Pop in for a quick bite before you head out on the town, or come celebrate with us. We take bookings, but we are just as happy for you to turn up unannounced. Welcome to fun dining at the new Taxi Kitchen.
Open from 12pm Tuesday- Saturday.


“The style of food is generous, simple, rustic and playful in its approach with a big emphasis on sharing. It’s lost the pretence, yet still produced, prepared and served with the highest standards” 

Tony Twitchett – Executive Chef

“The list is casual, comfortable, clear and concise. It’s also affordable and lot of fun with something to suit every budget. For those looking to splurge, we’ve still got some absolute gems in the cellar available on our reserve list”

Catering from 12 to 160 guests in our dining spaces, we offer a range of options to suit any occasion. Groups of up to 16 guests are free to order from our a la carte menu, or we also offer a range of set menus for those who like to plan ahead. We are pretty flexible and if you want to get creative with our set menus then tell us what you’re after and we’ll do our best to make it happen.

Our private dining room, The Taxi Platform can seat up to 36 guests. Overlooking Fed Square and the Yarra River it’s an enclosed terrace with heating and cooling and a semi alfresco feel. All decked out in greenery and with blinds that can open on a sparkling Melbourne day, it makes for an impressive space to entertain clients, family or friends. Minimum spends apply in here.

The Embassy Room is available for group bookings of up to 46 pax. In this semi private dining area your guests get the quintessential view of the Yarra River which is flooded with the lights of the city and the Arts Centre spire by night. Minimum spends apply to book the whole space, but not if you are booking a group of up to 20. We will ask for a deposit for most group bookings and there’s the standard T& C’s to sign.
