‘Unfortunately we had some customers who breached the rules and were being out of order towards staff and therefore, they were asked to leave the venue,’ a spokesman told Daily Mail Australia. 
The restaurant manager said the incident ‘ended amicably in the end’, the Herald Sun reported.
Victoria Police confirmed officers attended the restaurant but said no criminal offences were reported by either party.
‘No offences were detected and the parties requested no police action,’ a spokeswoman said.
