As we arrived we were not seen antil about 5 minutes of walking in. When we finally got served and ordered, the meal took for ever to come to our table. However the service was good after that little speed bump.

Sadly, St Kilda is rather run down however there are a few good restaurants. We caught the 96 tram from Melbourne CBD, alighted at St Kilda & walked 'the drag'. Elbow room was the only non-pushy restaurant, popular with young people. Staff lovely. Great food.

Situated on a busy street with plenty to look at. Glimpses of the Sun setting over the bay. Service was friendly but not very knowledgable, wine list is limited but some cocktails on offer. Four shared courses and all enjoyable. Cost reasonable. Probably a better...More
