La Roche has a bit more of an upmarket 'too cool for school' vibe yet the attitude of the staff is the complete opposite. Really friendly people that seem out of place of this street smart, hard core vibe that this establishment portrays. However please do not dismiss this establishment on first impression. It is like doing the right thing; following your 'hungry heart' and not judging a book by it's cover, otherwise you will be missing out big time on high quality and filling pub like food.

La Roche is like a mini pub and bar deviating sightly from the cafe scene. Come here when you are really, really hungry and you are here for an amazing feast. Ensure you have a lot of energy to burn afterwards, otherwise your going to feel a little tired and bloated at the end of the day.

Have tried their pizzas, and having just ordered a small one, the portion size was similar to almost a standard large pizza. Ensure you have a couple of people with you in the mood for quality pub food and pizza for that reason. Additionally, the chicken parmas are well cooked and tasty, no doubt one of the best pub food parmas in Melbourne. Shame I left a lot of the chips behind, no insult to the host - I was just too full to eat any more.

Love it how this establishment portrays art about what St Kilda is really all about. Needs to be visited at least once to be seen and appreciated with a grumbling tummy.
