The Great Provider is on Marine Parade, at the St Kilda Marina.

It is a great place to enjoy a meal with friends, family or colleagues. Situated only meters from the water's edge, you can relax and enjoy your meal while taking in the view of the sea, and the boats coming and going from the marina.

We offer a menu with something for everyone. There is ample parking adjacent to the Cafe, and you can drop in or make a booking.

Opening hours:
Monday to Friday 8am - 4pm

Weekends 7am - 4pm

Seven days a week

Rollo, the owner of The Great Provider has a life long love of good food and restaurants. After training and working in Melbourne restaurants, he moved overseas to gain more experience. It was in Italy that he was engaged to work as a personal assistant to Gianni Agnelli, whose family owned the Fiat and Ferrari empire. After seven years, he moved to London, where he worked with Taki, the well know social columnist for 'The Spectator'. At dinner, Taki would tell his guests that he and Rollo were 'The Great Providers for the evening...enjoy!'

After some years away, the long term aim of having his own restaurant in Melbourne drew him back home. So in 2001 'The Great Provider' was born. In the ensuing years, Rollo and his team have worked to create great food and a warm welcome at this wonderful waterfront venue.

We hope you enjoy 'The Great Provider'.
