Visited this restaurant with family recently. The food selection was excellent, the service very friendly and helpful. Staff were also very friendly and helpful with my 3yo grandson. Nice coffee also in a restaurant with great ambience and outlook across the road to the Palais. Will definitely come here again :)

A neat little outlet with good ambience and some great live music on Thursday nights. Bang opposite the Luna Park the outlet has a vast variety of beers and spirits. The menu offers a wide range of starters and main courses. Food is palatable. The Jazz bands performing on Thursdays are just amazing. A good place to hang out specially... More

Came for breakfast. None of the meals were pretty enough or tantalising enough for any pics. Very average fair. Looks more like a nightclub than an eatery. Not a very professional operation that morning we were there - laid back, not professionally trained waitstaff. In the end it was all "just a breakfast"

We visited with friends in a hot Sunday night and it was very empty which was a bit disconcerting. Had a table up the front with a nice view of Luna Park and Port Phillip Bay. Decor is modern and friendly, and our Waitress was friendly, professional and very knowledgeable. Food was OK, not brilliant. And while the menu looks... More

Struggling to find somewhere open in St Kilda at 7am on a Tuesday morning I stumbled accross Phamish. If you like foul mouthed blokes on 10speed racers then this place is for you.

We had just walked the markets & stopped for a meal before hitting the shops. Right across the road from Luna Park so a perfect spot to relax with a drink should you be going to Luna. Super healthy options, the food is fantastic. Portions are a great size, well presented & delicious. Clean, busy, friendly with a very chilled... More

We went to "Phamish", mainly because it is Jazz music night on Thursdays. It has a great atmosphere with good service, and the jazz is really great. Its in a good location, opposite Luna Park in St. Kilda, VIC. On the other hand, the food was terrible and very pricey.

6 of us visited St Kilda and had a fabulous breakfast here. Great food and service. You can either sit outside or inside - lots of options. Great for a full breakfast or coffee and snacks. Very friendly staff.

What a great time, the service is brilliant, their beef cheek dish is delicious, so are the prawns, in fact their whole menu is very spot on! I've enjoyed their breakfasts as well, coffee is truely one of the best in Melbourne and the view straight over to Luna Park is a real treat. We go there regularly on Friday... More

I went here with a large group for Australia Day for brunch. We were seated in the middle room which was a good sized fit for a large group but echoes quite badly so conversations were difficult without shouting. The wait staff were very friendly and attentive and remembered who had ordered what which was very good for a group... More
