Donovan's is a popular restaurant to visit when you're famished after a stroll or swim at St Kilda beach. It's like resting and dining in an actual house by the beach—the floor-to-ceiling windows open onto the beach and the interiors are of timber and rich fabrics. You can dine al fresco at the Terrace. There's also an enclosed veranda, a Cape Cod inspired dining room, lounge, bar and gorgeous private dining rooms.
The menu at Donovan's developed from owner Gail and Kevin's knowledge of contemporary American cooking and extensive experience in restaurant management. Pastas and barbeques and the freshest of seafood and veggies are featured. The owners continue to travel and do research on ways to upgrade the menu and the restaurant as a whole. Donovan's wine list offers a respectable number of Australian and imported wines as well as an diverse mix of cocktails.
For its charm and colourful style, the award-winning Donovan's is at the forefront of restaurants that serve good food in a casual ambience, the one that diners regard as their second home.
