When you feel like seafood this is your destination. There is plenty to choose from, food is fresh and yummy. You can sit inside or in romantic courtyard. There are local musicians in the evenings for a bit of a relaxation over glass of wine

Claypots Seafood Bar St Kilda provides full bar and wine selection. However if you have special wine or bubbly it is possible to BYO. The venue will charge $10 corkage for each opened bottle.
