Come in, grab a table, and go back in time. Esplanade Diner is a styled space that takes you back to the sun drenched St Kilda beach days where you can admire the ocean from inside or on the outdoor terrace overlooking the bay.

From 11:30am you can dine on items such as 'Three Mushroom Agnolotti' to start, 'Rack of Lamb' for main and 'Five-spice panna cotta' to finish.

Dietary requirements can be met and there's a range of gluten free and vegetarian options including a vegan 'Orange-Zest Risotto'. 'The Szechuan Crusted Barramundi' is gluten & dairy free. 

Our staple favorite 'Diner Burger' is available at the bar or when dining in the restaurant and goes great with a milkshake from our 'Milkshake Bar' that you can spice up with a shot of your favourite liqueur. 

For guests hosting a meeting, wedding or special event at the Esplanade Diner, the restaurant features a large open plan space along with an elegant private dining area. For larger gatherings in the Esplanade Diner, contact us on (03) 9536 6177 to discuss booking the diner for your exclusive use.
