Belgian beers on tap, and the largest beer garden in Melbourne, make the Belgian Beer Cafe Bluestone, 557 St Kilda Road, the right location for lunch, a midday business meeting, and definitely after work drinks.

Set in a historic bluestone building and away from the traffic noise of St Kilda Road, this bar and restaurant has over 40 beers to choose from, as well as a list of ciders and the usual drink mixes, so you're bound to find a drink that hits the spot.

Quench your thirst with a refreshingly cold beer.

A lively place where the outdoor tables are generally full up with nearby St Kilda Road suits and hospital employees and students, a DJ playing tunes from 6pm -10pm on Friday and Saturday, and from 3pm to 7pm on Sunday, and two outdoor bars during the summer, makes this beer garden attractive and worth a visit.

Similar to the selection of beers, there is a large choice of food from 3 separate menus - the beer menu, serving small portions priced from $8.50-$16.50, includes Asian and European tastes with selections such as Peking duck rolls, Saganaki, and of course the always favourtie frites and mayonnaise. The lunch classics menu offers a variety of sandwiches and a few hot larger meals, all available from 11.30am-5.30pm, and priced from $15- $20. Food to share menu offers entrees, salads, seafood and meat mains, sides, and desserts with a European flavour ranging from mussels, pasta, and sausages. A fairly good selection, however, disappointingly, no vegetarian mains.

Fish n' Chips - the perfect quick meal

Vegetarian Dahl Boras.

Bar favourites available til late.

This is the place to go for the international beer selection, and the spacious grassy beer garden with a beautiful bluestone building as a backdrop.
