Hotel Esplanade is home to not one but two of the best restaurants in St Kilda. No matter what flavour you fancy, whether dining for two or in a large group, Hotel Esplanade is your St Kilda dining mecca.

As one of the most iconic venues in St Kilda, we’re well known for our 12 bars over 5 levels and our consistent program of gigs, live music and comprehensive art program.

Dine in two of the best restaurants on the St Kilda esplanade

We offer two excellent yet very different dining options for you to choose from:

Espy Kitchen

Our main eatery is Espy Kitchen. With a menu offering a diverse range of foods using Australia’s best seasonal produce. We dish up the best pizzas, rotisserie meats and pub classic dishes day in day out. Seafood is a specialty offering too – we are located by the seaside after all! Our Espy Kitchen provides a dedicated seafood bar serving up platters of delicious oysters and calamari.

Mya Tiger

Our bustling menu boasts a varied and wide-ranging array of traditional Cantonese dishes including cumin lamb spring rolls, raw kingfish, bao and dumpling menu, pork and chilli wontons, har siu pork baom, XO pippies, steamed fish with ginger, soy and shallots; crispy pork noodles; and even a whole roast duck dish. Is your mouth watering yet?

It gets better – even our wine list is built around the flavours of Cantonese cooking! Complementing our Cantonese dishes are a range of great signature cocktails too.

Drink, enjoy a gig and dine in St Kilda

Fine food and drinks aside, Hotel Esplanade still has lots more to offer. We’re also the go-to venue for gigs and shows in St Kilda, with a consistent programme of live music, comedy gigs in the Gershwin Room along with free local and upcoming bands in The Basement. There is also our Arts Program to consider, with historical tours, art displays and much more making up our weekly programme of entertainment.
