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.

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 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
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!
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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 great night, with great food, great service, great value for money and great atmosphere! Lulo, I tip my hat to you! Definitely go again!
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!
