Quirky but food was great! Keep the slaw sliders on the menu! Worth a visit. Not pretentious just good honest food. Definitely a tapas place.

Had a very 'creative', delicious jerked chicken dish, and the croquettes were delish. Good location for people-watching. Warm and cosy setting outside, which is nice on a chilly winter night. Only let down by the decor which is a bit tatty and tired.

Had the pleasure of dining at the Pelican in April. There were 5 for dinner and the chef prepared the most delicious sharing plates. To name a few of the dishes, we started with the hummus, delicious, and tried the duck, short ribs, pulled lamb, a variety of vegetables and more. The roasted mushrooms are exceptional as were all the... More

Just across from the hotel was this little saviour. Intriguing menu with great choices for sharing. I picked the potatoes and the Beetroot salad. Was delicious and the wine selections were great. Not extensive but good choices. Recommend searching this one out

We were meeting our son on our first night in St. Kilda, so decided on the Pelican as it was close to our hotel. Pleasantly surprised. The staff were very friendly and the food which was Tapas was of a good standard. Thank you.

I'm not one to review restaurants, but our waiter's service (Jack) was so good that I felt compelled to review our visit. He was attentive, personable and went out of his way to ensure we enjoyed our Pelican experience. The food was delicious - particularly the saganaki, calamari and lamb back strap. We'll certainly be back!

7 of us attended Pelican for dinner on a Sunday evening in November and we were all very impressed. The food was amazing, the wine as just as good and the service was very friendly and reliable. Considering how much we ate and drank we were all very surprised when the bill came to a very reasonable amount! I would... More
