Just enjoyed a nice meal at Pelican in St Kilda. As the weather was nice, we opted to sit outside and many will be happy to hear this restaurant is dog-friendly. The wait staff were attentive and the food was delicious.

One of our first Melbourne dining experiences, was defiantly the best way to start. Everything ordered was better than expected. The service was fast and helpful, kitchen was nice and clean and quiet. Usually with an open kitchen there so loud. The only thing that was a shame was got a speeding fine on the way here....😂

I live round the corner from Pelican and have been patronising the place for years for breakfast and dinner - must have been there at least 50 times since 2004. I've never had a bad meal at Pelican and my friends who come to visit me in St Kilda all love the place. The wine list is good, the service... More

Quirky but food was great! Keep the slaw sliders on the menu! Worth a visit. Not pretentious just good honest food. Definitely a tapas place.

Had a very 'creative', delicious jerked chicken dish, and the croquettes were delish. Good location for people-watching. Warm and cosy setting outside, which is nice on a chilly winter night. Only let down by the decor which is a bit tatty and tired.

Had the pleasure of dining at the Pelican in April. There were 5 for dinner and the chef prepared the most delicious sharing plates. To name a few of the dishes, we started with the hummus, delicious, and tried the duck, short ribs, pulled lamb, a variety of vegetables and more. The roasted mushrooms are exceptional as were all the... More

Just across from the hotel was this little saviour. Intriguing menu with great choices for sharing. I picked the potatoes and the Beetroot salad. Was delicious and the wine selections were great. Not extensive but good choices. Recommend searching this one out

We were meeting our son on our first night in St. Kilda, so decided on the Pelican as it was close to our hotel. Pleasantly surprised. The staff were very friendly and the food which was Tapas was of a good standard. Thank you.
