About Claypots Barbarossa

Recreate traditional European style at Claypots Barbarossa on Hardware Lane in Melbourne’s CBD. A warm and welcoming vibe awaits, where friends come together over a love of music, drink and food; whether meeting for a quick and tasty lunch, sharing drinks after work, or couples looking for a romantic dinner accompanied by classic live jazz. From a creative, monthly-changing menu, expect to delve into small plates like seared Hervey Bay scallops, sesame and lime, or Spanish anchovies and caramelised onion on toast; before larger dishes of classic spaghetti marinara bianca, or stingray baked in sambal sauce, served with rice. Carnivores may opt for Moroccan-style slow-cooked lamb stew and couscous, with harissa spiced rice and grilled vegetables; finish with a dessert of crème brûlée citron.
