6 adults on a Saturday night looking for a pre-gig dinner in touristy St Kilda, no reservation, we knew we were not going to get a foodie experience to die for. Still this was about as bad as it could get. The menu is all over the place, a bit of Italian, some paella, burgers, etc. Flathead fish and chips... More

I highly recommend the Zenith Cafe and Bar. It is always very popular and it pays to book a table. Happy Hour is from 7pm and that's always great for the pocket. The meals were very generous in size and quite varied. The dessert cabinet was 'to die for'. Can't wait to go back again.

Stopped for a coffee and milkshake but when we went to pay they only accept cash under $20. No one stated these terms before our order. I suggest this cafe understand customer service is about more than just what you serve on the table...

This place was amazing. Because I have a lot of allergies I wasn't so sure...but the staff in very friendly so they arrange the food you can eat. The risotto was fantastic. Also the wine I had. Probably one of the best meals I had in a mounth in Australia.

Visitied here with my girlfriend for just a beer each and a trio of dips. It was simply awesome! The three dips were so good and was served with the freshest warm bread!

Our very first meal in St Kilda, the place was the only one packed on a Saturday noon, so we figured it was a good sign. Indeed the food was good and healthy (even though they offer their share of junk food), salads, vegetables, rice and grilled meats. Service was very friendly.

For the price we paid pretty disappointed as the food was very bland. When asked how everything was told them the food was bland the waitress just smiled and walked away. Great listening skills - or lack thereof. Their sangria tasted like raspberry fizzy drink which had canned peaches and pineapple very disgusting and costly - $11+ Wouldn't go back.

If you want a huge chicken parmi or a 350gm Porterhouse steak, then this café is for you! Daily specials are also available. A paella will set you back $32. For lunch, I had the fresh fish and chips which came with a mango/lettuce salad and fresh tartare sauce for $16. Our interstate friends opted for the calamari rings and... More

This time I must admit I was not correct to trust my instinct. The place looked nice from outside, and there were people dining...and it was late. The menu sported a "Vegetarian Focaccia", thus I ordered that. What I got was a burger with eggplants, raw onions, pickled artichoke (1 small half), two slices of raw tomato and a tiny... More

Had a late tea here on Sunday Night, was quiet busy but our Waiter David was awesome. Group of 10 of us accommodated straight away, we were dining with a few teenagers and the service provided to both the adults and the kids was top notch! Food and Drinks were all beautiful, and reasonably priced highly recommend this place. David... More
