For the eyes, beautiful views no matter where the eye wanders! The Deck,somewhere to eat and feel the sun, sea breeze or the stillness of the day or night. The restaurant comfortable surroundings, fabulous service and OMG, I just loved the Paella!

Went yesterday for the1st time. (Picked it from The Entertainment Book) cannot rate it any other than absolutely fabulous!!! The lovely Sarah catered to our every whim, she was very professional but was friendly as well. The food was so damn scrummy and the views from both sides were awesome!! Parking was very close and very cheap. Sad that we... More

Went for birthday celebration. Food took over 35 minutes to arrive, some meals came out without side dishes, no dressing on salad. One plate sent/took back for dressing had everything drenched in dressing. Staff were very inattentive, they had a large group in and they got all the attention. Even though we raised an issue with the meals, no-one came... More

One of my favourite places love going there on Saturday or Sunday and doing lunch. Their hamburgers with chips are extremely tasty and delicious. They also have amazing steak sandwiches.large selection of beverages and amazing cocktails. Beautiful views of the St Kilda marina and the beach. Love their large outside deck, where you can sit and enjoy cocktails and a... More

Attractive bayside venue where you can imagine the Real Housewives of Melbourne congregating - proof being that a recruiter for the show was scouting ladies the night I was there. You might need a 'real housewives' size Amex card though if you want a decent feed. Tasting and shared plates only whet my appetite at around $20 (my share). Our... More

Took some friends here and they loved it. The service was excellent, the food was delicious, the service attentive maybe because it was a Friday lunch. Had chicken coq au vin that was tender and delicious then had the best fondue ever. The waiter asked about allergies and told him I was gluten intolerant and was most helpful with this.... More

Lunched here on a long weekend visit to Melbourne. Unfortunately being winter it was a bleak day but one imagines the deck on a summers day would be outstanding. The wine (3 Marlborough Sauvignon's on the list!), food, service, ambience and location are first rate. Highly recommend when in Melbourne.

A celebration lunch in mid June, not the greatest weather so the harbor view wasn't a feature, however; the gas log fire and the warm friendly service more than made up for the weather. Despite being rather busy the service was great and the wait staff attentive. The food servings where generous and well presented. The wine was a little... More
