Strange times for dining out but you created a lovely space for my friends & I to celebrate a couple of birthdays. It was surreal that the Espy was not at full capacity on a Saturday night! We hope things improve so we can all get back to normal. Loved everything & thank you for finding a space for us post dinner. It was hard to plan but we were really happy in the end! Cheers

I wanted to introduce my friend to Mya Tiger and so took her here for a birthday dinner. The food is always fabulous and it didn’t disappoint (despite my friend being a bit of a picky eater). Staff are attentive and did an amazing job (as always) especially given the circumstances & reduced capacity under which they are working as restrictions are slowly being lifted. They were particularly fabulous for us! Thank you again Espy & Mya Tiger

The duck, which was the most anticipated dish of the night, was less than ordinary. We sent the first plate back, it was dry and rubbery at the same time. The second serving was not much better. Super disappointed.

Enjoyable set menu, great selection of flavours. Would prefer a larger cocktail selection as not many appealed. Distancing and awareness were spot on. A little rushed for a Birthday celebration when I could clearly see another table were not being rushed. Will return as love the experience, atmosphere and cuisine.

Everything was excellent, but due to social distancing we were placed in the far back corner of the adjoining bar which was cold and not the most ambient spot

Mya tiger is a good standard to food and interior space. During Covid they are only offering a banquette which is understandable however you need to leave within 90 minutes which is too rushed for a banquette. Our dessert was brought to the table whilst we were still eating the main courses and reminder 4 times by staff to hurry up as the table was rebooked.

Banquet was perfect. I was unsure looking at the menu but I was delightfully surprised. 100% will be back. Only issue was the limited time allocated to our table (90 mins) as I would’ve enjoyed a few more drinks but understandable under the current coronavirus circumstances.

Put off at first because we didn't realise it was banquet only at these times and I hadn't read that when booking,I don't eat red meat or pork and eat very little we also have young children. The waiter let us order only 3 banquets and changed items on the menu to suit us, we are and will remain loyal customers.

The food was amazing. The staff were very friendly and helpful. I have already booked to go again in a months time.
The vibe was only moderate due to the lower clientele allowed during the COVID issues.

We were really looking forward to going as we’d heard lots of great things. We had to have the banquet which was fine with us and the food was tasty but unfortunately everything came out luke warm or cold. Service was a bit slow too and the atmosphere wasn’t great. Hopefully this was a one off and we will try one more time.

Hotel general post COVID set up very slick, properly set up to monitor people.
Mya Tiger banquet dietary requirements not an issue and well catered for.
Thanks to G for his usual warm welcome, good to see the familiar faces, the Cocktails were great and Pinot Gris lovely.

Everything was amazing! The food and service were fantastic. My only gripe, there are two sittings & we were booked for 8pm. We were told to come 10mins early to register. We weren’t seated until 8.40, in the mean time we were made to wait in the basement bar without any communication and no option to buy drinks while waiting.

My first visit to the Espy since its renovation. It’s gorgeous. The views from the arched windows was devine and very instagram worthy.
Food was magnificent and the staff were terribly friendly and helpful. Can’t fault it and can’t wait to return.

The food was delicious and I loved the décor and outlook over St Kilda beach. I can't wait to take others there. The lamb rolls were to die for! The only thing that didn't make the whole experience enjoyable was the fact that we had a very rude waitress - it was like she didn't want to be there, cleared our glasses without even asking if we wanted another drink.
