Pelican means different things to different people. Some head to our restaurant to grab a quick breakfast before work or have it packed en route from their morning jog. Our à la carte menu draws a mixed crowd in the afternoons and evenings, and our hand-picked selection of beverages seldom go unappreciated. And yes, we’re also a popular brunching hub with soft drinks, hot beverages and some robust bar drinks.
If all this sounds interesting to you, perhaps you would like to drop in at one of the best Mediterranean restaurants in St Kilda. We’re a short distance away from the famous St Kilda beach – Melbourne’s finest – and just five minutes from Luna Park.
We are passionate about best Mediterranean and modern Australia cuisine. We’ve done our best to reflect it in our thoughtfully curated menu that is neither limiting nor too extensive for its own good. You will find some classic dishes, a few progressive, experimental preparations, and a couple inspired by famous cities.
Only the freshest ingredients go into our preparations. From the base to the flavors and the garnish, everything is sourced from local groceries. We believe that a dish’s character is heavily influenced by the quality of its ingredients. Even a near-perfect recipe will fall flat if its ingredients are compromised. At Pelican, there are no such worries – every bite or spoon satisfies you and makes you feel good.
If you prefer your eggs or common ingredients to be organic, we’ve got you covered. Some of our dishes have been designed specifically for health-conscious, vegetarian folk who like to start their day with fresh fruits and pumpkin seeds.
Successful restaurants often have an atmosphere charged with a certain alluring quality that earns them a loyal following. For Pelican, it is the ‘home away from home’ feel in a trendy yet hospitable, friendly setting where the mood is always upbeat. Having said that, we have also planned the design of our restaurant to cater to book readers, couples or executives who prefer a quiet lunch. Whether you’re here celebrating you birthday with a group of friends or sharing a pint with a colleague, you will love Pelican’s intimate and happy ambiance.
We follow the motto ‘if it ain’t broken, don’t fix it’ for our recipes. There is a reason why traditional preparations have endured through the years; any modern spin on a perfectly good recipe is uncalled for unless the result is something truly spectacular. At Pelican, you are assured a reliable culinary experience where the taste and fragrance don’t leave you with mixed feelings!
From time to time, we are commissioned to provide a delicious and economical meal for functions, get-togethers, parties and celebrations. Depending on your budget, you can pick from three packages, each with an excellent choice of entrées, mains and desserts, including tea and coffee.
