Decided the take some international guests to Republica and was hoping for some views of the bay. Unfortunately, when we arrived the weather gods turned sour and it bucketed down, drowning out our view. The atmosphere was loud, noisy and bustling with many of the young and hip set scoffing down their Sunday drink specials. Be that as it may,... More

Whilst I would normally give this place a great review as the location, food and drinks are just great, today is a different story altogether. We had been enjoying a few drinks on a sunny afternoon this weekend when we noticed a group at the table across from us were frequently leaving a very small child (under 6 months old)... More

I caught up with a friend at the Republica and real loved it. The weather helped of course as it had been a warm summer day of 30 degrees C and even in the evening it did not really cool down below 20. We had our dinner and drinks outside on the terrace facing the beach so we could enjoy... More

Loved it here! Visited twice - once for coffee and later for wine! It is a great setting right by the beach, as a solo traveller I felt comfortable seated alone and soaking up the sunshine and beach views. Decent prices, good coffee, would recommend!

This is a popular restaurant / bar with good food - large portions intact too much. On weekends in particular, it gets extremely busy, so much so that there are door staff admitting entry. Regular music sessions. When it is sunny, the courtyard becomes a sun trap. If you're a smoker, you can even smoke in the courtyard which is... More

We recently enjoyed lunch here and thoroughly enjoyed our experience. The food was absolutely delicious and the service accompanying our visit was fantastic. The location is overlooking the beautiful St Kilda Beach. The atmosphere is vibrant with a relaxed touch to it. Definitely worth a visit

Before I begin my review I must stress that our group of 6 people are all in their 60's. Went to Republica on Sunday night. Walked around to the back as we wanted to sit outside in the quiet. Bouncers told us we had to go back around the front to enter, when we queried why, they said because of... More
