On the beach at St Kilda Sea Baths.DETAILS
Beachcomber’s rich interiors designed by Wayne Finschi are warm and inviting, mixing clean Danish design with a hint of romance from Gilligan’s Island. The spacious dining room has a relaxed ambience, with its melange of wooden tables, chairs and booth-style seating. Unique wooden design flourishes from lacquered screens to timber trimmings adorn the walls and there is a large bar at one end of the room. The brightly lit space is enhanced by natural light that dapples through the floor-to-ceiling glass windows, which overlook the outdoor terrace. This wonderfully large al fresco area with its striking orange beach umbrellas looks out onto the glistening sands of St Kilda beach, and is perfect for a luxurious morning enjoying breakfast or brunch. FOOD & BEVERAGE
The cuisine reflects the seaside location, with its extensive selection of Australian seafood, including succulent oysters and up to seventeen varieties of fresh fish daily. Beachcomber’s food philosophy of freshness combined with humble simplicity manifests itself in well-presented dishes like steamed chilli mussels in white wine, sambal oelek, garlic, basil and napoli sauce as well as the grand seafood platter for two, consisting of king prawns, blue swimmer crab, oysters, scallops, grilled fish, baby octopus, grilled prawn cutlets, fried calamari and three delicious dipping sauces. In addition to the tempting array of seafood, the menu features old favourites, like souvlaki skewers, tender steaks, crowd-pleasing gourmet pizzas, and the flavoured coffees are an excellent way to finish the meal. The generous wine list and the inventive children’s menu (including dishes inspired by Shrek and Finding Nemo) make Beachcomber Café a fun and memorable destination. FUNCTIONS
