“Great food with lovely outlook over bay”
Reviewed December 13, 2012

Food is always of a high standard and view is great. We felt a little rushed though. Having the balcony to go out onto on a warm day is a bonus.

“Memorable Culinary Experience - Million Dollar View”
Reviewed December 4, 2012

The Stokehouse has a very special location on beachfront at St Kilda. The staff were welcoming, friendly and attentive without being intrusive.The atmosphere was relaxed. Anna is to be commended on her exceptional hospitality and provided great service. We enjoyed champagne and oysters on the balcony while watching the sunset, before heading inside to enjoy a memorable fine dining experience, beautifully presented tasty food of a high standard. Compliments to Chef and his Team. Highly recommend a visit.

“Great Place for that Special Occasion”
Reviewed December 2, 2012

The location and deco of the restaurant gives you that beach house feel. Views across the bay set the mood although a word of caution if you arrive late afternoon make sure your back is to the window since the table we where sat at did not have any blinds which was not pleasant for some of our party especially during sunset. Still with this being said the Menu had a great selection and the service was very good. Overall experience great !

$$$ can be expensive night out, so be warned.

“Keeping up the standard”
Reviewed October 24, 2012

We go to Stokehouse on special occasions as it can be quite expensive, that aspect hasn't changed but I feel that you do get value for your money. We were a party of ten celebrating my wife's birthday each person was limited to a choice of 1 item from 5 available on the 3 course menu. No one had any trouble finding something to their taste.

We sat at the bar initially, drinking champagne until we were shown to our table. The food as always was excellent and the service just as good. It seemed two me we sampled a fair proportion of the wine list, the choice was very good and the prices OK.

We will continue to visit Stokehouse whenever we can.
