    After a dog walk, I sat down outside with my dog and enjoy a beautiful large bowl of salad with calamari and a glass of champagne- delightful way to end a summer night! Service here is so friendly - without asking they brought a dog bowl of water and gave my dog lots of cuddles ... a lovely, relaxing, no fuss restaurant with yummy food.

    OK for a cheap meal; entree platter good, risotto special not so good. Complementary bottle of wine was great.

About the restaurant

A dear favourite

Set on bustling St Kilda Road, this relaxed suburban bistro is great for family feasts, work lunches or casual date nights. Pop in for a coffee in the morning, swing by at lunch for fresh salad or come at night and get stuck into one of their ‘buckets’. These buckets are immense and you can choose a dip of your choice, pair it with your ‘bucket’ and get cracking - there’s everything from spring bay mussels to Liza’s chicken ribs. They’ve also got some excellent sweets including barbecued banana with salted chocolate caramel sauce and toasted macadamia - yes you read correctly, barbecued banana! This is your one shop stop where all your foodie prayers will be answered - get here.

Best dish: any of the buckets!
