Nice beachfront restaurant and bar

We recently popped into Republica in St. Kilda for lunch. It was a cold spring day so unfortunately sitting outside was not really an option, but sitting inside facing the water through the big windows was a pretty good second option.

A group of us had lunch on a cold, wet Melbourne day. The table was great, overlooking the ocean and near a heater so we were lovely and warm. We ordered coffee to start - they took over half an hour to arrive. There only seemed to be one person making coffees and pouring drinks for the restaurant. Ordered food... More

Lunched here on a Monday, there were only 5tables, and we have been waiting for 45mins, still no sign of our order except for the Bread Dips! We are so bored waiting, hence, we have time to write this review, LOL! Definitely would not dine here again unless there were no more restaurants in st kilda. Also the expensive parking... More

Stopped off at the renovated Republica Sunday morning for breakfast with a friend on our Sunday morning bike ride. I had not actually been to Republica before even though I ride past it every weekend. We sat in the swinging chairs and looked out over the ocean. That in itself if worth while. OK so the food: seriously delicious -... More

It was great to walk into the this refurbished heritage / local nostalgic location. A great view of the bay through well designed large windows. The seafood was fresh. The prawn linguini was top class and the salmon, being a share with my wife, was one of the best we have had. Try the local beer! You will love.

Food was excellent and the bay views fabulous. The waiting staff were efficient and very friendly. We returned there for a second meal and I would go back there again on another trip.

Food was excellent. Plating was very good. Behavior of the staff was very friendly. Best place to enjoy the view of the beach if you choose not to go for swimming or tanning.
