“A wonderful Surprise!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2012

As family were staying at the attached hotel, it was convenient to eat at the Mirka Restaurant. Though not large, it was soon filled, which is always a good indication of a great venue. All Waitstaff were efficient, helpful and knowledgeable regarding food and wine. They were able to describe the dishes accurately and tell you how the chef had prepared the meals. A varied menu that was not huge but offered great choices. Extensive wine list and wines available by bottle, carafe or glass. Meals were beautifully cooked and presented. Parking is available in side streets. Tram stop from city right outside the Mirka. Will visit again.

“Do yourself a favour and try St Kilda's best-kept secret”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2012 via mobile

Great atmosphere and the rainbow trout dish was truly magnificent. I took visitors from France here and they loved it.

“Best Value, Best Service, Best Fine Dining”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2012

I LOVE Mirka. Cannot fault it. You absolutely can't go past the lunch special, 1 course $25, 2 course $35, 3 course $45, including wine and coffee. They even bring you hot gluten free rolls straight out of the oven if you tell them you are wheat or gluten free. My favourite dish is a toss up between the mussels and the rainbow trout, but i must say i have never been disappointed with any of the tasty offerings. I always feel like a favourite customer when dining there, and are so happy it's in our neighbourhood!

“Delicious food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2012

Dined at Mirka for Sunday lunch, great atmosphere especially the murals by Mirka. Wonderful surprise to find French Onion soup on the menu. My beetroot salad was sensational, lots of different textures. Mains were impressive, washed down with French champagne. With no room left, ordered the Bomb la Mora for dessert, I wanted to lick the plate. Finished with good coffee.

“Great food & service at Mirka Restaurant St. Kilda”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2012

We recently had a meal at this great restaurant on Fitzroy street and the foof and service was superb. My duck confit was the best I have ever tasted. My wife had prawns for entree and loved them & my french onion soup was the best ever. My son is a chef & he loved all the food he had as well.The steaks and sides were all excellent. I compare this almost to the quality of food at the Aria near the Opera House in Sydney. We will be going back to Mirka next year when we are in Melbourne.
