“Venue takes some beating ... but not the food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2014

An awesome inner-city conversion that's a funk, grunge and eccentric all rolled into one. And the open roof-top is quite exceptional. Don't let the weather deter you. There's huge awnings and plenty of outdoor heating to keep you comfy all year around.

We went for lunch in the sky, so only had wine and softies. But the drinks menu certainly warrants further investigation.

Perhaps it was the enticingly worded menu that made NFS fare sound terribly adventurous but the food was a bit underwhelming really. Tested most of the bar menu, which typically arrived in small quantity on share plates. Most of the dishes seemed in some way fried and more than a few arrived quite greasy.

Would still go again ... its' worth the visit if only for drinks and 'that view'.

Visually this place is brilliant, cool use of space and the rooftop is sensational. Very tasty tapas and good range of drinks.

“great food in an awesome setting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2014

Good value for money when eating in the early part of the week and a good selection of drinks and tasty vodka flavours. The 3 levels offer a range of seating options and the view of Melbourne from the top level is fantastic! Highly recommended and I will be back next time I find myself in Melbourne!

“What a fantastic place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2014

We stumbled upon Naked for Satan walking along Brunswick Street so were oblivious to the excellent reviews this place receives. Fortunately we arrived around 7.30 (sat night) so didn't have to wait for seating, but by the time we left there was a line outside. The restaurant couldn't fit us in straight away, so we opted for cocktails and bar food out on the balcony looking out over the lights of Fitzroy. A cheese platter, amazing eggplant, olives and other dishes made for a decadent dinner and the perfect accompaniment to cocktails and a nice Pinot. The staff were all extremely welcoming and friendly. A perfect experience.

“Wow,Panoramic view of Melbourne”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2014

Loved this place 10 of us met for Tapas and spanish wine on a beautiful Melbourne Monday in these holidays
Tapas are really great value, our favourites the eggplant chips and the veal meatballs, absolutely scrumptious.
Staff are very helpful and the decor is both engaging, quirky and takes you on a great journey
I can only imagine how popular this place is on a hot summer night
Put this place on your list as a must do
