Whether you’re looking for a suave, intimate bar for a casual tipple or a hearty, memorable meal calling on flavours from across the globe, Lulo is there to sort you out on Glenferrie Rd, right in the thick of the action in Hawthorn. South American flavours and Spanish staples are in greedy abundance, so the hardest part is choosing what you can fit in during a visit to this Latin jewel in the beating heart of one of Melbourne’s culinary hotspots. That just means you’ll have to come back.

Lulo is the place to go in Hawthorn when enticed by the Latin groove. Starting at the bar (a great idea if this Glenferrie Rd joint is buzzing as usual and tables are hot property), browse the impressive selection of Spanish and South American brews, or indulge in an authentic Brazilian Caprinha cocktail on par with any you’ll find in Melbourne. If you’re not staying for a meal, you can still get a taste of Lulo’s phenomenal food with an array of tasty small plates including Peruvian olives, smoked eggplant empanadas, house-made prawn crackers with succulent chicharron pork, or a slice of Lulo’s own quinoa and farro sourdough bread.
Apologies to anybody who takes off before dinner - but now things get truly exciting in east Melbourne. Amazing South American specialties sizzle on the Lulo grill, from ox tongue and octopus to Scotch fillet and lamb cutlets, all accompanied by mouthwatering Latin condiments. In the unlikely event you need extra sustenance there is grilled corn cob, crispy golden cassava chips, or papas andinas baby roast potatoes to help you along. Not to mention a trio of gorgeous ceviches for a lighter meal, entree, or to refresh your palate before finishing off with coffee and dessert. You won’t believe you’re still in Hawthorn.

Lulo is fantastic value and recommend it to those looking for a fantastic meal out with friends it an intimate dinner with their partner. The food and service is outstanding every time, along with a fantastic (albeit small) selection of beer, wine and spirits.
Both times I've been to Lulo, it's been a wonderful experience. The staff are charming , the food is fabulous and the atmosphere is warm and inviting . Lovely tasting menu enjoyed by all. Loved the ceviche and the green tomato salad !
We visited Lulo for the first time last Saturday for dinner. We had Happy Hour cocktails which were delicious. The food and service were great. Would highly recommend Lulo to anyone who enjoys a great night out for around $100 per head.
Laura was lovely and really looked after our table. All the staff were very accommodating! The atmosphere was good, lots of delicious food. The $50 set menu was very tasty and filling
Lulo has a menu heavily slanted to South American-style Spanish food, having changed its offerings and wine list quite significantly since our last visit. Excellent service, a good selection of dishes and specials and a strong wine list provide for great dining enjoyment.
Fantastic !!! could not fault a thing . Food was delicious , great service , very knowledgeable and helpful staff We just had a really good experience at Lulo's. Will definitely highly recommend and return.
Food was absolutely wonderful, the wines on offer were nice, though understocked as they only had 1 bottle of the one we enjoyed. The presentation order of the food seemed a bit random with entree and mains coming out all over the place. So deliciously random would be the way to sum it up. Friendly staff
Valentine's day menu at Lulo was fantastic and the special Presseco cocktail loads of fun. The service was great and the waiters helpful and friendly. The five courses were interesting especially the chicken dish that had a smokey flavour. My husband and I are looking forward to our next meal there
Atmosphere was great and staff were very friendly. They had run out of two of the items we ordered, but we were offered replacements which were delicious, and staff were very apologetic. Food was delicious, but felt a little pricey for the portion size.
Great food. The service was excellent. We ordered a wine that was recommended to us by the waitress. It wasn't our cup of tea. They replaced with another bottle no fuss at all. The beef rib and cheese croquettes were awesome. Love this place.
Great food and wine the service was excellent but a little expensive. Enjoy decor is great we sat at the higher tables near the bar, sometthing different to normal tables, don't be put off the bar stools / seats are comfortable. A great night.
Nice atmosphere & food. The service was very good although I didn't like the fact that we had to keep refilling our own wine glasses. I think for a restaurant with food that quality & price that's something the waiters should do - just a little thing though. I'll be back for sure!
Attentive service, good atmosphere. Music not too loud so we could hear ourselves talk. Food was inventive and delicious, good value also. The waiter actually talked us into getting the smaller cheaper serve of the main dish. We will be back.
Great food & very obliging wait staff. Quite happy to let us sit & wait for family member who got the time wrong & was half an hour late even though the restaurant was buzzing and it was a Friday night
The food was lovely, we had the $50 set menu and had lots of choices and plenty. The wine list is good, lots of Spanish and Argentinian as well as local wines of course. And the staff are friendly and attentive,
The staff were very helpful. I organise a surprise dessert for my friends engagement and it came out with sparklers. Best tapas i have had. Thank you so much, our night was very enjoyable!
We had a lovely time, the food was delicious and great wine! We couldn't fault it, very impressed with the service also, I believe her name was Laura or Lauren. She was fabulous
We had the $65 Chefs tasting menu which was a great choice! It was a good selection of tapas and they even let us swap dishes of our choice. Very friendly and accommodating service and generous and tasty food.
Everything we ordered as a foursome was great. Wine selection including by the glass was first rate. The only slight negative was the bill at $325 was a little steep for the relatively casual setting and style of dining
We had a lovely family dinner to celebrate a birthday, beautiful food and service that catered well for the vegetarians and different age groups. It made a special birthday even more special
Laura was amazing and told us everything! even when we didn't know about one of the sauces she explained everything! The food was amazing! love the empanadas and the chicken!
Great service, delicious food! Spanish, tapas style restaurant with lovely ambience, friendly service and a truly delicious selection of plates - make sure you try a bit of everything!
The service and the food at this gorgeous restaurant is consistently excellent. We celebrated my son's 21st and many other occasions here and it never wavers from superb.
Food was extremely tasty, good to get lots of different plates. Service was good and friendly, atmosphere was great. Staff explained the meals and provided good recommendations too.
Great food, and attentive service. But a bit surprised we were the only table left in the place after 9ish. Kudos to the staff though, they made us feel comfortable, and weren't looking to rush us out of the place!
Great food staff & ambience Went there for our anniversary & were not disappointed. Unique items on the menu Would highly recommend Tapas was sensational 😃
Very good food. The green tomato salad with palm heart and dried capers was supreme! Service for wine top ups was quite slow and needed a few reminders but always friendly.
Lovely spot for dinner - food was delicious, and an extensive wine and drinks list. Fun, cozy atmosphere with great service. Highly recommend a visit.
A great night, with great food, great service, great value for money and great atmosphere! Lulo, I tip my hat to you! Definitely go again!
Fantastic food...especially the desserts! Staff are always really friendly and very helpful especially if you have food allergies etc. would highly recommend LuLo to anyone
A wonderful restaurant, Fantastic flavours and delicious food and perfect service. The lunch special is great. Thanks so much we will be returning for sure.
Lovely dinner, especially the pork belly starter and the crab-apple sorbet with caramel popcorn dessert! All washed down with a light, crisp sparkling that was perfect for our date night!
Service and atmosphere was great. Some dishes were better than others but overall we enjoyed our experience. Wines by the glass were limited but interesting. The churros were the best I've ever had, including in Spain!
Good food, wine and service; nice for after movie supper or casual dinner with friends. Sharing menu of tapas and some larger dishes and good selection of wines.
always exceptional service, food and wine! This was our second visit and it exceeded the first for sheer depth of flavours and variety of tapas items on offer
Friendly service and pleasant ambiance. Food reasonable but nothing special, could be more innovative. Wines enjoyable and well matched for the food . Overall an enjoyable evening.
Very friendly, accommodating, helpful staff. The restaurant looked clean and well maintained. Decor is modern, relaxed and warm. Food was divine. Overall a lovely night of dining.
Great food and service, the tapas style South American food was a treat. Loved the belly pork dish. Will definitely be going back with friends and family.
very friendly staff & great advice re wines and the menue relaxed environment and very friendly atmosphere...definitely a bar to remember and a great go to
The service was great, lamb in particular was delicious They did not have the snapper for the ceviche instead offering kingfish on the night, but overdid the sauce - way too much.
Awesome service and delicious food, overall enjoyable experience. Will certainly recommend this spot to friends and will return to try other items in the menu.
Good flavours. Extremely slow from Order to Service though, then all the meals came together - so half of our plates of food were cold by the time we reached them.
The food is tapas-style, so the portion was on the small side. Great for sharing over drinks but not so much for just dinner. Overall delicious food and great service.
Disappointing service, entrees came out before our drinks were served. Lovely food,especially snapper ceviche ,oysters,tomato salad. Would try it again - might have just been an off night.
Very disappointing considering how expensive it was. We ordered the smallest set menu for two people, and one jug of sangria, which totalled $130. There were no stand outs in the meal for me, and my partner's favourite dish was the cured ham, which didn't need anything doing to it! Won't be back again.
Over priced and left still hungry plus the waiter was doing shots at the bar, directly across from where we were sitting. All staff weeee super friendly but portions were too small and was a super expensive feed.
