This was one of the most taste bud tantalizing calamari dishes I have ever had. The meal was fabulous and we even sampled the local beer and it was delicious.

True South is fabulous! From their hand-crafted beers to their churros with chocolate sauce, the food and drinks were delicious. Our server was lovely and we didn't wait long for anything. Atmosphere is lively - great location across from the bay. Eating here with friends was an absolute treat and I can't wait to return!

Being a regular visitor to True South since it first started it is a great pity to see service going downhill over the last month. The food at True South has always been fabulous and it still is.

Service was very quick but could have done withy a bit of time between bringing out the plates as the tables could not hold all 4 dishes at once. Not a very wide wine selection and wines available very expensive from Argentina. could use a few New Zealand wines.

We had a function for about 40 people upstairs with great bay views, outdoor balcony and food that kept on coming all night. Finger food - calamari, fish & chips served in cones, beef cheek with quinoa to name a few...great value too! Great choice of wines and in house brewed beer & cider.

Great beer excellent food .. Just a great all round quality place to eat. We are regulars here and eat all over Melbourne however i still believe that this is one of Melbournes hidden gems to eat.

We enjoy True South, its a local establishment that offers in house brewed beer and ciders and a varity of food options. Food can be a little on the high cost side but is great quality and delicious. Have been there 15+ times now and never left dissappointed.

We really enjoyed the tapas here on Sunday for lunch. We ordered 6-7dishes between 4 of us which was plenty. Very tasty yummy food. Certainly would be our local if we lived in Black Rock. The service was also great. Will hopefully be back before we head home to Christchurch.

Enjoyed a very pleasant lunch for 2 sharing 3 dishes, the bresaola, calamari and pork belly.....all were well presented and tasty. A good local establishment and well worth future visits.
