We have been here a few times when visiting Melbourne. The first time we sat in the beer garden and had a few beers in the late afternoon while listening to a guitar player. It was really enjoyable. On out latest visit we had lunch and sat inside in the main dining area. Most of our group had fish and... More

Fabulous food. When I commented to the waitress that my dish was much spicier than I anticipated, she quickly retrieved me some lemon and said squeeze this in and it will help alleviate the intense chilli. OMG! So clever! Beautiful chilli prawn linguini. Antipasto platter was really nice. Little chocolate cups not so nice, tasted like they had baby banana... More

Enjoyed being near the seaside and ordered something light, the grain salad was tasty and my friend loved the cauliflower risotto.

We have been to St Kilda a few times since being in Melbourne and have loved it every time! it's a very lively, quirky place, with loads of lovely restaurants and bars. The main strip of restaurants along the sea front are a bit more expensive, but if you go at happy hour and stay until the evening, you are... More

Great place to meet and enjoy the sun. No need to buy anything if you sit on patio. Lots of reggae music. Food and drink good but bit expensive.

Had my 21st birthday dinner for a group of 12. A nice cozy spot was reserved with a beach view (as per requested). A lovely ambience. Food was amazing. Ordered all the pizzas flavours, chips and chicken. Everyone enjoyed the food. Chicken was a hit. Very friendly staff, catered to all mine and my guests needs. Pizza's are a little... More

Stopped by with my husband for a drink because my favourite swinging basket seats were free (they rarely are in warmer weather!). Made for a very cosy, pleasant break to our walk with great views over the bay. I had soda, lime and bitters and husband had a beer. Nice atmosphere. Good hot chocolates to warm cold hands

Very good venue for group gatherings. Lots of space, seating for small to medium size groups or families. The food is very good can recommend oysters, pizza, cod and potato soup. Had both lunch and dinner over a few days in April 2017. Service we had was very good and we will definitely go back again.

Had a wonderful Saturday lunch at Republica - food was amazing, fresh, full of flavour and simply delicious!! Could take our pick of dining style from the beer garden, indoor dining, rooftop bar or restaurant- we chose to sit outside overlooking St Kilda beach and enjoyed the live music and the great vibe. Absolutely loved this place - will definitely... More
