A unique setting and experience based at the Abbotsford Convent St Kilda Melbourne. This is a very positive community project and you pay what you would like towards maintaing the project which gives employment and hope to the unemployed. The setting is lovely with interesting gardens and the river to walk along a bit further off. We came here late... More

I really liked the food, and the volunteers do a great job. The menu only included six meals, but all of them were interesting. Great that everything is vegetarian.

Went there with a friend. It was the first time I heard about a place where you pay whatever you think is appropriate for a meal, as the place is a non-for-profit place... it certainly is an interesting concept. The food is really good too. All vegetarian.

Really nice idea of paying what you feel it is worth. Happy to pay a good price as the food was great. Had the lentil burger and shared the pancakes, both were flavoursome and very filling! Will definitely be going again.

I really liked the concept of this resturant; pay what you are able to and what you think the meal is worth. I liked the atmosphere of the place and as I came here on my own I was paired with another solo diner and was treated to some nice conversation. I came for dinner and there was a queue... More

Very nice concept. Small little alternative vegetarian restaurant. You order and pay as much as you think your meal was worth :-) Vegetarian Lasagne with pumpkin and tomatoes and rocket was very tasty!
