The service was poor, waitress had trouble understanding our straight forward order. Main meals came out directly before entree. We were a table of 4 adults and 3 kids so our table was totally packed with 11 dishes all at once and no room to move. Mains were cold by the time we finished entree. There was also a very... More

Waitress was quite rude busy helping others colleges doing the same job. We orders the fish and chips and for 30 dollars it was a decent sized portion but a little pricey. We went at 1pm and only realised when we where leaving that there was a special lunch time deal that wasn't offered to us. So we could of... More

I sat at this beautiful place outside with a glass of wine. It's a really nice place to sit on a warm day and the inside seems nice too. The staff were super friendly and attentive in a good way. I didnt order from the menu however I was tempted! Really good selection not to mention the food coming out... More

My main concern is the customer service. The majority of the staff is extremely rude and have no concept of delivering great service and to just simply communicate. We made a booking to have breakfast here after the City2Sea run. It was a busy Sunday morning/afternoon, the restaurant was packed. It took quite some time before they took our orders... More

An amazing location was about the only thing going for this cafe. My friends and I ordered the bruschetta x2, breakfast bagel and Bannana bread. My breakfast bruschetta came out in a timely fashion. Expecting the other meals to follow I started on my breakfast bruschetta. We waited and waited but nothing else came. I eventually finished my meal and... More

Ok, admittedly I went pretty much at the same time that the City2Sea finished and there were more people around St Kilda than there would have been on a normal Sunday morning. That doesn't excuse the level of service or the quality of the meal. When I was waiting to be seated, no-one bothered to mention that there would be... More

Dropped in for breakfast after city2sea run with 4 friends. Slow drinks service with even longer wait for very very ordinary breakfast. All of us had poached eggs on mash avocado with feta cheese. Worst looking dish ever since I'm a fan of this menu item at other venues. Perhaps the excuse is that we were busy. Hey... it doesn't... More

We've been waiting about hour for breakfast (other people as well) to receive things like on the picture... and owners seem far from being friendly

Have been here 2 yrs in a row after the city to sea run with the family. Both times we ordered breakfast and didn't get it. Waited over an hr today for meals that didn't come and no communication from the kitchen. All the tables around us had the same issue. Full house and 3 tables in the outdoor area... More
