Further Information

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.

The food was excellent. We got to talk to the chef/owner and discussed cooking techniques. Our server was fantastic. Very attentive to us and made excellent recommendations on what to order. We took her advice and ordered every thing she suggested and it was all excellent. Highly recommend this restaurant!

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.

This was our second visit to Lulo and on the whole it was a pleasurable experience. However we all agreed that both the menu and service was better first time around. Portion sizes were a little underwhelming for the price, particularly the mains and the staff were a little over eager to clear plates that we clearly weren't finished with. Would give it one more try based on our first visit.

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.

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.

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

The food is wonderful. The wine was excellent. The service was friendly and efficient, knowledgeable and thoughtful. I came to this restaurant more than 5 years ago and always remembered it as a standout. So glad I came back and will definitely return.

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.

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.
