Dear diners, please note that online reservations are for the set menu only.
In Melbourne the name Claypots is synonymous with superb seafood, and Claypots in St Kilda is no different. It’s a homey and welcoming spot on Barkly Street – just a stone’s throw from St Kilda Botanical Gardens – ideal for a cocktail, a wine or a beer, but even better for some oceany gourmet. The food tends to be Mediterranean-inspired and although the menus and specials boards change regularly, there’s often dishes in the way of Moroccan couscous with eggplant, harissa, mussels and fish fillet, as well as chilli crab, cajun flathead or sambal stingray – it really depends on when you go. That said, one thing that never changes is the warm welcome. At Claypots the staff are passionate and friendly, although we guess they have to be when manning one of the most popular seafood spots in Melbourne.
Great food and environment (we sat at a courtyard table). the service was warm and appropriate. Definitely i would recommend Claypots to my friends and tourists.
Great hospitality, great food. The host went out of her way to ensure our party of 8 enjoyed our experience. Thank you Claypots on Fitzroy St.
The menu is almost exclusively seafood. There was one vegetarian dish listed on their claypots board. There were some non-seafood items listed in the menu (plate of olives) which we were told was only available as a bar snack (and therefore couldn't be ordered and brought to our table!). Other items on the menu are better as large fish shared dishes. If you love all things seafood this is the place to go. However, we were a group of 11 people, some of whom weren't keen on seafood, so to find that there was only one non-seafood dish was disappointing.
