Good place to sit back, relax and enjoy a meal with a lovely beach view. It wasn't a busy time when we were there so it was pretty quiet. And since the weather was nice, we got a table outside facing the beach. My friend and I ordered the braised beef cheek and we actually enjoyed it. It was cooked... More

We arrived at the venue to be seated in the back section with the families. Being 4 ladies with 11 children between us on a girls weekend we asked whether we could be sat in the front section of the restaurant away from the children. This was not taken well by the waiter who seemed to take it personally and... More

I stayed away from the pizza, chips and other fast foodie options I saw on nearby tables opting instead for the dishes of Salted Cod with garlic aioli (entree) followed by the Pannacotta with rhubarb crumble for dessert. Absolutely delicious. Great value for money. The restaurant has lovely bay views and perfect for people watching. Diners can sit in or... More

We went in the bar for a drink only. There are only a couple of bars actually on the beach, which we later found is the norm in Australia and New Zealand, as the bars and restaurants tend to be away from the beach fronts (pity as there are some great views). It was very busy in St Kilda on... More

We went for lunch to celebrate a birthday on a very warm day. We had a long table which overlooked the water. Claire, one of our waitresses was very helpful. We only ever had a short wait on drinks, water was replenished without asking and ice was offered. At first glance, the menu didn't jump out at you. We went... More

Visited this restaurant with my wife and son whilst in Melbourne for a week to see Sydney FC play. We chose the restaurant whilst going for a walk along the main beach front promenade mainly due to its location and available seating as all of the eating venues in this area were busy. This is a little more formal than... More
