Found this gem….

Stopped off here after spending the day in Melbourne shopping and struggling to find a car parking space in St Kilda. Food was excellent and very reasonable - service was first class. Atmosphere was good and will definitely visit again next time I am in 0z visiting family.

We love blue tongue. Great food and wine list. A second home for us. Best food in Elwood. The staff are really friendly and our puppy loves to visit too

Cocktail was delicious, however my ATM card was lost for an unnerving ten minutes after the server swiped it through the machine and insisted she'd put it right in front of me while I was entering my PIN. After ten minutes of frantic searching it was eventually found behind the bar underneath the receipt book. Not a word of apology... More

Long time Elwood resident (10+ years ) and have seen this place waiver between good and nearly good, but never "very good". Wandered down mid week early Jan, new menu on the table. Would love it to be great one day, but variability between dishes is a worry. Don't call a small dish "tapas"... just say whatever it is. Having... More

having moved into the area six months ago, we were a little surprised at the service provided in many of the restaurants. A little cool, perhaps many of the staff are transient? This is not the case at Blue Tongue. Maitre d' (owner?) is immediately friendly and welcoming, making us feel like regulars. And the rest of the team are... More

It's taken 8 years but a most pleasing return to this Elwood stalwart. Nothing has changed, savvy staff, smart wine by the glass selection, great tapas menu, interesting wine list and Carlton draught on tap a winner. Octopus tapas was sensational, a chicken curry special was very good and plentiful and a classy little cheese platter to finish with. Just... More

The locals will hate me for reviewing this wine bar, but this local is well priced with indoor and outdoor seating for summer weather, reasonably priced local and imported wines and beers and a generous menu. About 15 generous tapas dishes, mains including a selection of pasta and risotto, beautifully presented fish and a selection of meats- trio of pork,... More
