I felt so bad for these guys because they were really trying. We ordered three dishes from the tapas menu, at first only one arrived. When I asked if the other two were coming, the bartender said yes they were 5 minutes away. He then came back twice to double check what we ordered. Somehow, we then received two dishes... More

We had lunch here and immediately enjoyed the friendly service and willingness to look after us. The menu was decently priced and the items available were a good selection. The meals we had were delicious, particularly the cripsy calamari salad. The location is perfect for watching the comings and goings to the mall and the layout, although slightly funky in... More

Our group of 4 friends had lunch here on a Sunday and were a little disappointed. We'd made a reservation expecting it to be busy like so many others in Acland Street, but need not have bothered. We were there for over 90 minutes from 12.30pm and at no time were there more than 6 other guests there; not a... More

I had seen the brioche French toast with bacon and maple syrup on the menu earlier in the day but however much I wanted it I wasn't hungry. In the evening I came back but chose seafood linguine and a fizzy wine (forget the name but had Alex in it) which went together really well. The seafood dish was soooo... More

My friends and I love Veludo Bar and when we discovered they offered member's rates and parties we were coming here 1-2x a week! The food is great, the drinks are cheap and the location is perfect. With an open-air rooftop that looks over busy Ackland Street, it's no wonder that the place is always pumping... but don't let this... More

Wandered down Ackland street, St Kilda in search of a risotto. We (two of us) got an excellent one - mushroom. Very good indeed and at $ 15 each, excellent value. One of us added Chicken for a further $4. Still very good value. Wine at $ 10 per glass, not quite so good value! Whilst a good drop, where... More
