Hell of the North turns out to be Heaven !

My wife and I have undertaken to experience Melbourne’s 10 best French restaurants. This was number 1…and what a way to start..

The Hell has a great facade and an equally impressive interior. We were warmly greeted on arrival and seated promptly. We ordered some drinks and were explained the philosophy of Hell whereby a feed me option at $65 per head is highly recommended. Then it all started. Bad point 1; good restaurants do not serve French champagne in a white... More

We were just 'whelmed' by our experience here. We had the feed me selection for $65 and felt that none of the dishes particularly stood out. The food was tasty and we left full, however for a restaurant rated for it's culinary experience, we felt it was lacking. The staff were difficult to interpret with some being friendly and others...

I needed to find a restaurant near our Fitzroy accommodation for a late Sunday evening meal with 2 colleagues. I chose Hell of The North based on the ratings on TripAdvisor and location. We loved it! We didn't go for the $65 5-course option as we weren't that hungry - so we ordered an appetizer and main each. Funnily enough... More

Was sent there on the recommendation of Saint Crispins. Lovely warm place that makes you feel welcome. Came for drinks but continued with the cheese platter

We had the $65pp degustation, I had the vegan option, and another diner with us had the gluten free option. We seemed to have less food than everyone else, and my main was sliced pumpkin - it was tasty but paying the same amount as everyone else for their mussels, braised beef and other mains didn’t add up. The gluten... More

The Hell of The North was a lovely surprise today. Went there with no expectations and found a place that is simple but sophisticated. The menu is easy to work through and I can recommend the Charcuterie. It is one of the better examples of this dish in Melbourne. The service was friendly but not overbearing. I highly recommend you... More

This place is just awesome! We got the feed me menu 5 courses for $65, really great value and amazing food. The atmosphere is really funky, dark inside so it feels intimate even during the day. Had some of the best wine I've ever tasted there too. Staff are really attentive and knowledgable. I really cannot fault the experience I... More

We had the "Let us feed you @ $65pp". There was a lot of food. The seafood was fresh and beautifully cooked. The steak was nice an tender, melted in the mouth. The pasta was creamy and rich, served with beautiful salad and hazel nuts. Love the cheese platter too. The dessert was a bit too sweet for me. There... More

This was a very enjoyable meal , the staff were friendly , accommodating and the food delicious. We arrived with no reservation however were able to secure a table. The meals are designed to share , beautiful pork and gruyere 'donuts' were a highlight. $4 charge for continuous pour of sparkling water is very reasonable , nice ambience , very... More
