Donovans restaurant on St Kilda's beautiful foreshore is an original and unique concept in stylish, comfortable eating by the sea.

It is designed to look and feel like one's house, with areas such as the Cape Cod inspired dining room, library, lounge and bar area. There is plenty of natural timbers, rich fabrics and sandstone fireplaces, plus floor-to-ceiling windows that open onto the beach.

Donovans has an exquisite private dining room, ideally suited for 10- 26 people, with a separate and incredibly impressive menu to match.

Both the restaurant and private dining room menus are extensive and a mix of modern Australian and Italian cooking influenced by Head Chef Emma D'Alessandro's Italian heritage, with a strongly emphasises on the best local produce.

Donovans also offers an extensive wine list of Australian and imported wines and an eclectic mix of cocktails.

The food, wine, ambience, location and staff make Donovans more than a restaurant; it's an experience.
