  • Love and Dysfunction

    Pubs & Bars St Kilda, VIC
    Cosy spot for cocktails with a funky beer garden out back. They serve great cocktails and play funky music. It's a quirky, interesting spot. Be careful in Grey Street though as it isn't very nice after dark.
  • Ludlow Bar & Dining Room

    Restaurants Southbank, VIC
    Lovely spot for a meal with a view and live music. It does get quite busy and noisy but it's great for a big night out. The food is quite nice too and the ambience is fun with an open fireplace.
  • Blackburn Hotel

    Pubs & Bars Blackburn, VIC
    Decent food at reasonable prices but nothing special. The atmosphere is somewhat lacking and the nearby gaming machines sort of ruin it as well. I had a really nice chicken salad which was reasonably healthy.

  • As a local, I had been taking my pets here for quite some time before I finally got sick and tired of the bad attitude of the staff there.
    I have now found an alternative clinic in Gardenvale that is fantastic
    • You and me both! Love the North Road Vet in Gardenvale, if that's the one you mean! :)
  • Woolworths took one of the best supermarkets in Australia, and turned it into one of the worst. Although they have kept many of the staff from the previous supermarket, they have removed all of the interesting, gourmet produce by small, niche, quality producers and replaced it with Woolworths brand stuff. So in the past, there would be excellent, interesting breads from artisan bread makers, sour dough, etc. Now there is Woolworths brand 'gourmet' bread. It says 'sour dough' on it, but when you read the ingredients, there is yeast! Anyone that knows anything about sourdough bread, knows that it is made from sourdough culture and contains no yeast. Just because Woolworths says something is 'gourmet' doesn't mean it is.
    So because it is a small supermarket, with not much space, they have had to reduce the brand choice you would normally get in a Woolworths. So when you go to get jam (for example) there is just two jams and one of them is Woolworths brand.
    So it doesn't give you the choice of a normal Woolworths, it just gives you rubbish to choose from. You know, cartons of 12 ridiculous cupcakes. Or some monster box of lamingtons. Not something I would ever want to buy.
    The old supermarket before this used to actually offer breads that were on a par with Baker D Chirico across the road. Proper artisan products. Now it is filled with Woolworths brand rubbish. The only thing it is good for is picking up something like yogurt that you need for a recipe and forgot to get when you went shopping at your regular supermarket, which would never be this one.
    It is no good. I am very, very disappointed. I used to rave about the old IGA and the interesting things they had. It was a supermarket you could be proud of. I would go interstate and only occasionally see a supermarket as good, one at Surry HIlls in Sydney. Otherwise, there were none as good. Now, it is the worst of the worst. To go from the best to the worst! Such horror.
    Woolworths should have thought more about what they were doing and realised where they are. This isn't some regional town where they can force their 'Woolworths' stuff on us. This is St Kilda!!! St Kilda deserves better than this. Massive Fail.
    • This review is spot-on! You now have to try order those wonderful niche products at the online website and often they are out of stock. By the way, the organic range offers no certification that I can see of its organic provenance.
  • As I had driven a long way, I thought it would be a nice way to end the day to have my hair done. The staff seemed to understand my instructions just fine. Then the staff completely ignored them. My hair was a complete mess and I had to go elsewhere to try to rectify some of it- not easy.
    • Unless you will pay for hair extensions or a wig, you can't rectify such a dreadful cut. I will simply have to wait for it to grow.
