The food was amazing (especially the tempura prawns) and upstairs you could just ask the bartender what you wanted in a cocktail and they would make and everytime it would taste delicious!

Had a lovely Chicken house burger with fabulous fries with dips and my partner had a marvelous beetroot and feta cheese salad of which we decided to share as both meals were delicious, washed down with a bottle of...

This isn't the biggest place on Fitzroy, but it is becoming by favorite. Really love the food here. I have had some disappointing meals in St. Kilda, but this wasn't one of them. Everyone in our group was pleased with their lunch. On a busy summer Sunday the meals were prompt and perfect. Looking forward to going back for cocktails.

Have always had a great night at this bar. I have not eaten there so cannot comment on the food but the drinks are always fantastic, wine in particular is excellent and not overly expensive like a lot of other bars around this area. The dress code is smart, they ensure a nice, fun and well behaved crowd is allowed... More

In and around St Kilda, there are so many bars and night spots. I've been to most but always find myself with friends back at Laika. Everyone, staff and patrons, are always up for a chat and a laugh. Great cocktails and wine and the music is always fantastic. Service is great and the price for most drinks is in... More

Had a Hemmingway Daquiri there together with the raspberry sorbet there one night. You gotta try that combo! There's was also a lady singing and playing jazz on the grand piano. It was a very fine experience. Rather dark. But that's a plus in my book. Friday and Saturday the tables are cleared to make room for dancing feet. Mostly... More

The outfits, decor, food, drinks.... Absolutely amazing! This place gives you the 1930's feel that reminds you of your grandparents stories. The drink menu at first glance is overwhelming but the description of drinks and flavour make your mouth water in anticipation. Food!!! Wow! Fabulous! Great find with a gorgeous view of the waterfront.
