In general, airports haven’t exactly got the best reputation when it comes to food options – overpriced and stodgy are some of the most common adjectives that come to mind. And let’s not mention airline food. It can be the worst thing about travelling.
BUT, here at Holiday Inn Melbourne Airport things are a little different. And that’s why so many people stop by Vargas Restaurant for a meal before, after or even in between their flights.
Serving delicious buffet breakfasts, lunches and dinners 7 days to hotel guests and the public, Vargas Restaurant is a great spot to meet up with passengers in or out of Melbourne Airport. Kick back and enjoy something a quality bite to eat while you wait. Live flight information, onsite carparking and our free hotel shuttle bus make it super convenient for arrivals and drop-offs.
With a menu based on the freshest local produce, and some of the best chefs in the business, Vargas is breaking the mould when it comes to airport food, serving sumptuous buffet and à la carte meals along side a fantastic beverage selection.
