St Moritz Restaurant and Bar Hits the Mark in St Kilda
St Moritz is a stunning new addition to Acland Street as a top notch bar and casual restaurant for your next catch up. It's a new addition but pays tribute to yesteryear with a neon replication of the dancing dirl from the St Moritz Ice Rink that used to exist at the location from 1929 to 1981. The venue is modern but also incorporates St Kilda grunge with exposed brick and quirky artwork.
The World Loves Melbourne was invited along to sample some of the menu; we arrived for lunch but the menu is large and varied across breakfast, lunch and dinner.
A decent array of top beverages is an awesome start to our meal.
A surprising and excellent dish is the Bloody Mary oysters dish; the hit of vodka especially welcome.
A popular dish is the Pork meatballs with tomato salsa and ciabatta bread. Perfectly cooked meatballs covered in a compelling delicious salsa for a rustic hit!
A highlight was the Fish Tacos with grilled rockling, mango salsa, pickled cabbage and capsicum coulis. These tacos reminded us of Mexico where you can get delicious fish tacos by the sea. The presentation of this dish was first class, like a work of art.
Great casual dining in the heart of St Kilda!
A substantial delicious dish was the Pan fried gnocchi with charred artichokes and sticky smoked beef cheek. There was so much beef cheek here that we thought it could be renamed smoked beef cheek with gnocchi, but a moot point. If ever there was a winter warmer rustic dish it would be combining beef cheek with gnocchi!
Dessert is top notch at St Moritz with the Roasted Hazelnut S'more a highlight, not to mention the Lemon and Raspberry Charlotte. Come in for the full meal here or even tuck into these compelling desserts.
St Moritz serves up attractive modern comfort food. We also noted a section from the grill that includes large prime steaks and a breakfast menu that looks mouth watering.
St Moritz ticks many boxes and is the perfect place for a catch up with friends.
