Chances are, you’re already familiar with Groove Train. As one of Melbourne’s best exports, the restaurant consistently impresses foodies and families all over eastern Australia. Their first outlet opened up in Melbourne back in 1998, and since then, the company has been sharing their superb international dishes with diners who appreciate great coffee, delicious cuisine and fantastic customer service. The Reservoir outlet, found inside of Summerhill Shopping Centre off of Plenty Road, is a busy location and especially popular with students from nearby La Trobe University and just moments away from the Loddon Ave. & Plenty Rd. tram station.
From nachos to steak sandwiches, Reservoir’s Groove Train has all the international flavours you’re after. Breakfast is one of the Melbourne restaurant’s busiest times, thanks to its impressive selection of morning eats from eggs on toast to breakfast burritos, as well as its very own coffee blend, Groove Press. Try the grilled ham, cheese & tomato toastie for a simple early-bird sandwich, or go for a hearty platter like the Whole Groovy Hog, a plate chock-full of Italian pork sausage, fried eggs, bacon, tomato, mushrooms, hash browns, onions and sourdough bread. Sweet lovers typically go for the French toast topped with cinnamon, icing sugar and maple syrup, and we can’t blame them – why not add grilled banana to really go all out?
The Groove Train outlet inside of Summerhill Shopping Centre – just off of Plenty Road – is proud to serve up some of Reservoir’s favourite international eats including wood-fired pizzas, Asian stir-fries and Mediterranean specialties. Seafood fans can attest to how delicious the Grooves Fisherman’s Basket is – featuring grilled tiger prawns, salt & pepper calamari, scallops, beer battered fish fillets, chips, salad and sauce, this popular option is a serious feast! The penne amatriciana is another favourite, tossed with garlic, roasted capsicum, kalamata olives, chilli, parmesan and Napoli sauce, and the veggie burger pleases vegetarians and meat-lovers alike. Sweet lovers stop by Reservoir’s Groove Train for decadent desserts like the restaurant’s very own chocolate calzone (filled with nutella, fresh strawberries, chocolate sauce and ice cream), the dark chocolate mousse and the rich tiramisu. There’s a great kids’ menu too, so bring the little ones along for an unforgettable family outing at Melbourne’s most popular international restaurant.
Great service, quick turnaround, trendy decor, generous portions great value, ample parking right outside. Would definately go again and recommend to others... you have to try the tasting platter, delish but left little room for mains.
Good service and the food is delicious. The restaurant is spacious with decent design. The price is reasonable. Near Latrobe university. I’m really satisfied with the experience
Food is always great at Reservoir, plenty of choices on the menu for everyone. Staff are friendly and the restaurant is always keep clean. Keep up the fantastic work.
The food was absolutely delicious and the service was great. My party of 7 were all really happy with their meal. I definitely would recommend this restaurant.
The waitress we had was great. The food was good. The general restaurant was not good. We were a table of 6, and after sitting down we realized the terms and conditions of our shop a docket and asked our waitress if we could sit on separate tables. She said it was fine to stay on the same table and she would work out to put our orders separately so we could benefit from the shop a dockets. We then find out after putting our orders through that management was not happy with the decision and said next time we can not do that. So next time we won’t come there and we will choose another restaurant that doesn’t have such ridiculous terms and conditions.
The service was ok - waiters were friendly although we had pre-ordered our food to be ready by 12.15 as we were on a 1hr lunch break. The food was not ready until after 12.35. Quite dissapointing as I had made a point of checking it would be on time, and there was only 6 of us and not many in the restaurant. Food was delicious, had the calamari entree and greek salad. Last time we had pre-ordered the food arrived closer to the requested timeframe.
We have been to this restaurant numerous times over the past few years and have not had any problems. The food is consistently great, the service is good and we will be back.
We have celebrated my daughters 18th and sons 16 Birthdays here with friends and family. Fantastic food, great selection on menu. Great staff at reservoir. Very clean , will go back again.
Always excellent service and even better food , i always frequent here for meals knowing that everytime is going to be a pleasant one. keep up the great work and coffee
The staff were happy to help. The service was prompt and the food was good. Still need to put more chicken in the chicken salad 😊 it would be good to have more smaller/cheaper options.
