Had lunch today and started with 6 oysters unfortunately I got a bad one and gave it to the duty manager who was really apologetic and offered to replace the whole 6 but I wasn't game enough to try again, I would also like to say I understand this can happen and isn't there fault, the duty manager came back...

This is the perfect summer spot for meals or drinks. Great views of the beach, sheltered, cute hanging egg chairs (very popular so grab quickly if empty), relaxing music, great vibe. The food is delicious and arrives quite quickly. Outside area allows dogs. Friendly, professional staff.

The atmosphere and drinks were very nice. The food however was overpriced and barely edible. A place by the beach should offer more seafood selections and more light meals. I had oysters that weren't fresh, a slimey prosciutto and mozzarella (gross) and parfait (also not pleasant) these kind of appetizers weren't suited to the place but none of the mains... More

I could spend hours here and sometimes l do. Live music on a Saturday afternoon. It's nice to sit outside and just watch the people and their dogs go by.

We went to this beach side restaurant on a very busy day. The main restaurant was fully booked but there was room in the bar section which we were happy to accept. The staff that looked after us were warm and friendly despite being very busy. It was a bit loud which was understandable, and so was not a very... More

My wife and I stopped here after visiting the pier and reading a few reviews for dining options in the area. Service was excellent and the food was terrific as well. Every dish we ordered was amazing, including our dessert, and reasonably priced. We're very happy that we stopped here and we'd definitely recommend checking it out if you're in... More

Location, location, location! This place is on the beach and perfect for drinks anytime of the day. We have bar snack style food and it was great. Price is it too bad either considering it's location!

If you want a nice laid back setting with good pub food this place is good. Much more like a beer garden feel and mainly for a younger more casual crowd. Not as upmarket nor as good as Donovan's but fine for a lunchtime spot of food, especially if you like pizza!

Second visit to Republica - first time for coffees (delicious) and second time with partner and kids for a light lunch. It was the perfect spot to soak up a sunny Melbourne afternoon with a glass of crisp Rose and a load of share plates, right on the beach. Food was hot and fresh, we thoroughly enjoyed every dish that... More
