“A great experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013

This is a great place for lunch! Service is friendly prompt and happy to make suggestions. We had the lunch special of two choices from the tapa's menu and a drink. This was fantastic value and the lamb especially is absolutely delicious. We had the beer tasting and this was excellent value for money at $15 for 5 and a good opportunity to try a variety of the beers, ales and ciders on offer. The doughnut and chocolate was the perfect finishing note. We shall definitely be back.

“Must visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

A boutique brewery with an Argentine menu, great location and very friendly staff. Try as many dishes as you can and get the cous cous salad.

“Great micro beers. Awesome food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2013 via mobile

Great place to catch up with friends. A good range of boutique beers and an excellent Argentinian menu. 5 of us shared half a suckling pick. An impressive dining experience.

“Ambience with a view.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013

True South our favoured "local", whether it's for a casual brew of beer or cider or delicious different styled food prepared by authentic Argentinian chefs. Specialities include slow roasted pork to local lamb,the tapas menu is great for quaffing on a lazy day, especially if you are out the front on Beach Road enjoying the sunshine. Service very friendly, knowledgeable and helpful especially when ordering food.We have also attended upstairs functions where at least 100 people are easily entertained, the outdoor deck looks directly into Port Phillip Bay. Evening sunsets are brilliant and so is the sea-fresh air!
Ambience abounds in this old but fully restored workshop.

“Great Place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013

A second visit to True South did not disappoint. The food was delicious, with great seasonal variety. Service friendly and not overpowering, specials explained and any questions with the menu answered easily. A great place for small or large groups.
