Steak! Good for you, delicious and darn hard to find a place that does a good one. That is precisely why you need this list of the best restaurants in Melbourne who know how to do a steak pretty well. Get to it!

L’Hotel Gitan, Prahran
Steak at L’Hotel Gitan is from three main beef suppliers – Southern Ranges, Cape Grim and Ranger’s Valley. Steaks come in various sizes (150g, 250g, 300g, 330g and a whopping 1kg).

The Ranger’s Valley beef they serve is flank steak in the form of what would probably be considered their signature steak – the Bavette. This beef is sourced from New South Wales and is 270+ day grain feed Black Angus, with a marble score of 3+. They serve this in two sizes, 300g and 1kg with a rich Café de Paris butter, garlic chips, capers, anchovies, olives, cherry tomatoes and onion rings. This is served pre-sliced and is the best beef for sharing.

Other steaks are served as Steak Frites with their two dressings – Latina and Béarnaise. They’ve just recently started doing a Tuesday night Steak Night special. It is a 250g steak (usually a flat iron or rump) with pommes du jour and a salad for $25pp.
