    A very filling parma. Too much cheese for my liking, but the chicken, napoli sauce and ham were all spot on. Chips were good, as was the salad. Would gladly eat again.

    At their special price of $12 on a Wednesday night, you really cannot go wrong here. Decent size and quality serves of chips and salad, the Parma itself is enormous, however a little bland and on the cheesy side. Chips can end up soggy as they're served under the meat but okay if you get them out quick. Bonus points for the spectacular 270 degree rooftop view (currently under renovation though) and comfy lounge area on the mid level.

    Another Parma at the Mountain View because I was visiting a mate who is in hospital over the road at the Epworth. The Parma was much better looking than the quiche he was having . Another good effort ....yeah

    Chips were great, parma was just ok. As per many other pubs in the Richmond area - far too much cheese on the parma, and not enough sauce. Way overpriced for the quality.

    Hmmmm not what I expected from a place where I have previously had a very good Parma. The schnizel's undercarrage was burnt as was the ham that was sticking out from under the tipping whicg was very ordinary. Salad was very limp and uninteresting. The chips were the saving grace

    My brother, a mate and myself went out searching for an honest parma, and to be blunt and decisive, the Mountain view just didnt deliver. The chicken eered on the side of overcooked and the topping was confined to a blob of mozzarella with minimal sauce. The chips and salad didnt show enough to be commended. The only positive that I could gather from the experience was the size of the parma, which more than compensated my appetite. Overall judgement, needs improvement.

    2 words; Scarlett Johansson. This parma and leading lady share common traits, excellent sized breasts, and well proportioned. One could argue there was too much cheese, they would be right. One could argue the topping was adversly effected by the excess cheese, they would be right. One could argue the chips were being suffocated by the parma causing them to become soggy and the salad was fairly average, they would be right. Overall, if you want Scarlett come to the Mt View... Just don't expect the complete package.

    Scott reckons:

    If you order the parma, you better be hungry. The size is huge, but unfortunately that is the most notable thing about it. I like parmas with more flavour and thats where this one was lacking. The meat was great, not dry but instead the crumbing was just a little soggy, chicken a little juicy. The topping had the right ingredients but it wasn't well proportioned; Too much cheese, the ham was flavourless and the sauce, while good, wasn't doing much for me. The chips were quite sad, there wasn't enough of them and the ones that were there were served under the parma, making them extremely soggy. For $10 I think this is a bargain of a parma, but I'm not sure I'd be as happy paying full price.

    Very large parma which came out piping hot and the chicken breast was supberb. Parma was served on top of the chips and when I lifted the parma discovered that was f*ck all chips although they were very tasty. Cheese was only just melted so quickly congealed and so sat on top as a hard oily blob which wasn't very nice. Not enough sauce however the ham was ok. Salad came in a seperate bowl and had a nice dressing although the tomato was sh*t.

    Overall, only an average meal. I remember it being better last time. It's great to see the salad come in a side bowl to stop the chips from getting soaked though!

    Good to see some places put the salad in a separate bowl so that the chips don't get tainted with salad dressing.
