Super view of St. Kilda Beach whether seated inside or out. Great selection of fresh fish, together with chicken and steaks. Helpful friendly staff.

We visited over Easter so it was quieter then I have seen it on previous occasions. The staff were friendly and attentive, food was tasty and quick and the venue was great. We will be back

I can see why the service can be hit and miss as per other reviews, however we enjoyed our experience with breakfast by the beach on a very pleasant autumn day. No delays in food or coffee. Neither were 'world class' but both were very good (particularly given other reviews had me worried)

Casual dinner with friends and family after seeing cute penguins on the pier. Great value for money and super fresh seafood. Sea view is priceless and service is good.

Love this place, especially its renovated decor! Lovely to watch the sea during lunch and breakfast. I had the best eye fill that I have eaten there this month. We attended as a family for a birthday dinner and everyone thought their food was great. Good sized serves as well. Happy for us to bring a birthday cake. Love it!

I visited here with a friend who had been before and she commented that the service was poor compared to previous visits. We were ignored the entire time; we waited 15 minutes for someone to bring over menus or like most places they bring you water once you have been seated - we got up and flagged someone down; we...
