Loved this place from the moment I saw the front yellow door.

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... read 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

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

Thought we would check this out first hand after reading widely varying reviews. We took the " Let us feed you" option and it was more than adequate and satisfying in its variety - included terrine,soup,fish,beef,fries and side vegies,cheese,dessert!! We opted for a stool and high table and therefore avoided two sitting times for Saturday night - perfect for a... More

We have a fabulous degustation dinner with matching wines. One of the best we have had. The waiter was amazing and very knowkedgable about his food and wine. Service was brilliant! Food was excellent! Wine was awesome and very interesting, which was a nice change from the stock standard brands. Had some sensational German wines. We will definitely be back

This restaurant is very good if you are prepared to do it the Chef's way and go with the flow.Some will want more choice but my son and I enjoyed doing it their way Good food somewhat overpriced but typical of more pretentious places in Melbourne Good wine list particularly A bit noisy!!
