We stayed at the Mantra Hotel St Kilda and went there for breakfast and the Bakini Board tasting as part of the packaging. We found that the breakfast is generous and the board tasting is nice too. Will recommend to friends

Nice venue but everything was just ok - including service, food and drinks I would not be interested for a return visit Steak was not cooked as requested and prices too high. Disappointing as Stkilda Road needs more good lunch options

Obviously convenient if staying at the Mantra but not a restaurant that one would specifically go to if not staying in St Kilda Road. Expensive for what is provided and a restaurant that I would classify as only to be visited if convenience dictates such.
