    What an absolute delight and surprise. The menu and food presentation just perfect. The mussle pots, sobet oysters and lamb were the hero dishes. Our puppy was welcome on the deck dining space which was protected from the wind. As a bonus we saw some blue penguins walking out onto the pier after dinner.

    Little Blue is a cute place at the end of the St Kilda Pier from where it’s easy to walk over to watch the penguins (when the crowds of tourists are gone). The food is fresh, delicious and is a pleasure to look at. Price vs Quality is really GOOD. Our Estonian waiter is an enthusiastic professional. The views of the harbor and sea-atmosphere are worth the trip......and the penguins of course..... I would change the chairs for more comfortable ones so I could enjoy the “bubble” we are in even more. Penguin-watchers pass by and we enjoy family-time together......a beautiful end of a beautiful holiday.

    Food was great. We had 6 different dishes. All were really good. Large serves too. Service was a bit average. Took forever to get waiters attention for drinks and service. Then told boiling was for 90 mins only as they had a function. Time limit was not mentioned on ‘the fork’ booking site. So were rushed at end to eat main in 15 mins. Put us out in the balcony for coffee and dessert which was ok as we were lucky with the weather.

    Service was great. Booked online - called to confirm reservation and inform of 2 large groups coming so advised coming early for good service (very helpful). Free bottle of red wine on arrival after being drenched on walk up pier. Fast and thorough impeccable service throughout with recommendations. Food was absolutely delicious and big portion sizes (despite being slightly expensive). Went on steak night - all steaks cooked as ordered.

    Unexpected amazing food for dinner. Everyone classes it as breakfast or lunch. Great surprise for dinner. Little stark on atmosphere but hard to balance the breaky lunch dinner transition. Fire place is awesome.

    It's a nice small restaurant at the end of St Kilda Pier. It has great sunset view and next to the penguin colony. Tried their signature seafood pasta, very good, recommended.

    We enjoyed our dinner and service however would we brave the cold blustery walk on the pier for another visit? Probably only if we were enjoying the Fork Festival incentive and we wanted to watch the penguins coming home

    It got magnificent view, great location. Potential to be a romantic n classy restaurant. However, the decoration inside very simple, service wise, took a while for food to deliver, asked for rare steak but I would say a bit over cook.

    The views from the pier and service were good. Food was alright, some were good, others were salty and seafood was not fresh.

About the restaurant

Feeling Blue?

This fascinating restaurant sits right in the middle of St Kilda pier, enjoying 360 degrees of stunning views! You can see everything from the glittering Melbourne city on one side and the great green expanse of the sea on the other. Little Blue Restaurant has been around since the 1800s, when the old building on the pier was converted into a restaurant. Tragically, the original structure was burnt down in 2003, but luckily for happy diners, it was restored again for us to enjoy well into the future. With windows all around, the interior is bright and airy, and from the outside, the restaurant looks like a charmingly restored blast from the past. Little Blue Restaurant plates up all of our Australian classics, like juicy burgers including a spectacular soft shell crab number, as well as mouth-watering battered seafood and grills. The do breakfast, lunch and dinner, as well as share platters. If you’re down at Port Philip bay, you’ve got no excuse to not hit this place up. You might even spot a penguin or two!
