Designed to share and inspired by the robust flavours and spices of the Mediterranean rim, at Prince Dining Room humble vegetable and side dishes are heroes in equal measure to main plates.

Perch yourself at the bar during aperitivo hour, or settle in for a long lunch or relaxed dinner in the main dining room.

Private dining options also available.


The Food

Executive Chef Dan Hawkins and Head Chef Dan Cooper’s light, flavoursome menu is inspired by hyper-seasonal ingredients, always working at the peak of the seasons.

Sourced from local markets and a personally curated network of regional growers, producers and fishermen, the Dans work with ingredients at their seasonal peak, aiming to enhance and compliment the existing flavours.

“Letting the ingredients drive how, what and when we cook is key to maximum flavour and taste,” Head Chef Dan Cooper explains.


The Experience

Making the bold choice to step away from fine dining towards a more relaxed menu and decor, through Prince Dining Room the Prince Hotel returns to play its original role – a meeting place for St Kilda natives, their friends, families and guests.

PDR is a beautiful and relaxed space to enjoy exceptional food and drink.

“We want to bring the Prince back to its roots as an icon that services the local community, and a destination as one of Melbourne’s great restaurants,” says Managing Director Andrew Ryan.

“That means great food, great drinks and service with St. Kilda’s signature flair.”
