Situated in Melbourne’s vibrant CBD overlooking the Yarra River, Pure South Dining offers a modern dining concept spotlighting the finest Tasmanian produce sourced directly from the Bass Strait Islands.

Perched above Southbank’s scenic promenade, our dining room boasts panoramic views of the Yarra River and Melbourne skyline, providing an elegant backdrop for any occasion. Whether hosting an intimate gathering or a grand celebration, our Private Dining spaces cater comfortably to groups ranging from 12 to 60 seated guests. Full venue hire of the Pure South Dining Room is also available, accommodating up to 180 guests for seated events or 250 for cocktail receptions.
