Great place for lunch and the views from the deck are gorgeous.

My friends and I often come here for lunch or just a coffee or a glass of wine we always find the staff helpful and courteous, but most of all the views looking into the St Kilda Marina are spectacular, the summer Sunday afternoons are a real hoot with live acoustic bands playing during the... read more

We had a 6.15pm booking arrived at 6pm ordered some wine and bread to start so we could relax and enjoy the view before our meals. The Bread came out straight away which was dry and tasted stale, within 4 minutes our... More

We booked this venue in the Marina room for our Wedding for 150 people. Emma and her colleagues do not know how to run a venue. The phone goes unanswered and no calls are returned. Emma did not show up for scheduled meetings nor were any of the staff aware that appointments had been made. I asked for our deposit... More

Went for birthday lunch sat out on the deck enjoyed complimentary glass of french champagne. Great service you can share plates and just relax and watch the world go by or go on the weekend when it is much busier plenty of parking in beach car park. Enjoy!

Attended a wedding here in February... A very picturesque setting right on the water, the place was very overcrowded and trying to get a drink was almost impossible. When we were directed to the reception area we discovered there was no aircon which was a pity because it was about 30 degrees! The whole evening was just uncomfortable, entree was... More

We were lucky enough to get some tables/chairs & umbrellas after arriving a bit earlier as suggested by staff. I had a... More
