About Our Venue
Situated in the heart of St Kilda and boasting one of St Kilda’s largest outdoor dining areas, be prepared for Lona’s unique experience of high quality Pintxos, wines, cocktails, pink neon lights and fun.
What We Do
The Lona model is at the forefront of the blend in Melbourne between restaurant and bar. It caters for couples or groups wishing to taste an array of different foods over an extended lunch or dinner, to customers simply looking to have a few drinks at the bar whilst sampling a few Pintxos. Pintxos is based on playful dining, often using your hands, with an emphasis on sharing and trying a different selection of flavours.
With over 15 years’ experience in hosting functions, Lona is the perfect function venue with the option to organize as little or as much finger food as you like. It’s perfect for all celebrations including Christmas parties, weddings, work functions, birthdays and school get togethers.

Don’t Take Our Word For It
We happened upon this place late one afternoon, when most other places had closed their kitchens. What a great bout of luck it was, as the staff were super friendly, the food was super tasty, and the beer on tap was plentiful and varied with the barman giving advice on which to drink. The menu is a tapas style menu, with food that’s full of flavor. Portions are big enough, prices are affordable. I strongly recommend it..
