Best Function Venue South Melbourne

When it comes to south Melbourne function venues, Da Ricardo’s of Croydon is hard to beat. We have invested so much into becoming one of the best function venues in the region, and our name is now synonymous with exceptional service and value. 

The same guiding principles that have made our restaurant such a massive success are applied to our function rooms as well. Our approach is to be reasonable in our pricing, friendly and professional in our service, and to always pay attention to detail.

We don’t compromise on quality, and our regular customers appreciate this. As a result our restaurant business is consistently filled to capacity nearly every night.

Now, there are certainly plenty of cheap function venues in south Melbourne, but they don’t all provide good value to their customers. Da Ricardo’s stands out from the rest by aiming to always add as much value into our service as possible, and that is why we’re considered as one of the best function venues in Melbourne’s south.

Catering for functions is available through our on-site restaurant. You can tailor down our menu to fit your requirements and help keep your event running smoothly. We can provide any advice you need to help you make the right choices.

Finding enough variety certainly won’t be a problem, as we have a good mix of international cuisines, and plenty of options.

On the menu you will find steak, chicken, fish, seafood, pasta, risotto, curry, and even some more exotic choices like saltimbocca and venison. To top it off there is a range of desserts such as sticky date pudding, chocolate mousse, tiramisu, affogato, crème caramel, and crepe suzette.

There are choices suitable for vegetarians and vegans. If anybody in the group has food allergies or other special dietary requirements, please be sure to let us know.

We are also a licensed venue, so alcohol service is available until 11pm. If you’d like to include alcohol service in your function, then let us know and we’ll discuss the different options available so you can choose how you want to incorporate it into your function plan.

Your guests will have no problems finding a place to park, as there is an abundance of parking all around us. From the massive car park at the Eastfield Mall across the street, to the mid-sized parking lot on the corner, to simply accessing a vacant space in the adjoining side streets, there are always enough places available. 

Da Ricardo’s is the perfect choice for hosting your function. If you’re not feeling sure, why not come and have lunch or dinner at the restaurant and see for yourself why we’re so popular? This is a great way to get a preview of what to expect from us in terms of value, service, and quality. We know you won’t be disappointed.

Da Ricardo’s is the perfect function venue in Croydon that acts as a stunning wedding venue as well as the perfect Kids Party Venue in the Eastern Suburbs. So check out Da Ricardo’s Eastern Suburbs Function Rooms for all your venue hire requirements.
