Best lamb... Ever

It would be hard to find a better location to eat by the beach in St Kilda. That alone deserves many stars. But the food was a surprise. I ordered the lamb. That thing melted in my mouth like ice cream. It was beautiful. Everyone at the table enjoyed their meal. I only gave 4 stars because I... read more

Dined at Republica for lunch and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Nice size menu with plenty of options. Wagu beef was so tender and the other components of the dish worked really well together. Very quick service, reasonably priced and well worth a visit if you're after a relaxed dining experience with beautiful food and an exceptional view out over the... More

Lovely beachside restaurant with stunning views of St Kilda beach. We went here for brunch on a Sunday late morning and sat outside shaded under the awning. It wasn't too busy and we were served quite quickly. The food was delicious as was the banana smoothie, and the atmosphere was calm and serene as it should be on a Sunday... More

Good food, good kids menu, fun place and good prices. Well worth going to. Walking distance from the Novotel if staying there.

I absolutely love Republica. The location is amazing, right in front of the beach. The food was great: Friday after 4pm they have oysters at 2$. We had a feast there. We also ordered the linguini with prawn and was great. We watched the sunset and had good beer. On Sunday we went again and they had a live band.... More

Lots of seating, indoors and out. Seemed like the place for the "cool crowd". Service was friendly and attentive. Had raw oysters to start; flavor was good but I prefer oysters more chilled. Mains were good too but I thought potato gnocchi was an odd choice with clam sauce. Iced coffee was a dessert-like treat!

From the outset, staff were accommodating...pencils and paper for the child, loud music turned down a few decibels for the older diners, and a table near the front window as our party included an overseas guest. I have eaten here quite often, but chose Republica for this occasion on its menu (online) and location . We were not disappointed. I... More

My husband and myself came down for a swim then decided to have lunch. We picked this for location but were happy with the choice. The staff were excellent as was our lunch and jug of sangria. Well exceeded expectations. Would highly recommend. Linguine with chilli prawns and gnocci with clams peas and bacon. Both delicious.
