Went here for the first time to celebrate a girlfriends birthday. At $65 a head for food, it was a real treat and superb service and value for money. We ate like kings and queens and they were fresh delicious and healthy plates. Lots of variety and something for everyone. Staff are super friendly, relaxed and the location is easy... More

It's probably a good idea to make French cuisine to be standing out from all the surrounding burger places and cafes. They do offer a fixed priced four-course menu option. But this is not a set menu. Nor you can choose each dishes. Instead chef will decide what you will have for the four courses. I think they should give... More

We were a group of 5 visiting Melbourne from Sydney for the weekend for a friends birthday. We made a reservation at Hell of the North for a Friday night for his actual birthday dinner. The restaurant it's self is quite lovely looking. The atmosphere on the other hand is quite stuffy and the whole time we were there we... More

We came as guests, for a special occasion. The welcome was friendly and we were promptly shown to our table of four. We were shown the wine list and as agreed had the $65 per head tasting meal. The wine waiter was pleasant and knew his wines. However, this is a review about the food and here we were sadly... More

I took a risk and brought overseas visitors here before coming myself...and was not disappointed! We chose the 'Feed Me' option for 4 people and the food was delicious. The staff were SO helpful regarding my severe peanut allergy and made me feel confident that the kitchen could cater to me safely; you can't underestimate how much it means to... More

The restaurant had been recommended by a daughter so I was a bit concerned about the noise. The building is a lovely old blue stone house in a quiet street off a main road. I had asked for a quiet table and they put us with other people at a big table with others! This would have been fine except... More

What a great casual place to share great food with friends! I didn't the think food was expensive, well priced, however if you like a tipple or three like us, it can push the price up. Would definitely return next time in town.

My partner and I thought we would give this place a go for a relaxed dinner. Great ambience and very attentive staff, the menu is original and this is a place to steep out of your comfort zone when it comes to food. We chose the feed me option which gives you 5 courses left to the chefs discretion, glad... More

Visited again on friday evening as a pre-cursor to Derby day with my son visiting from Sydney. We were not let down with their food consistency and excellent attentive service. My son commented further that on his next visit to Melbourne on business he will be taking clients there rather than in the City, a wonderful gem.

Staying in Fitzroy

Neighborhood Profile
Fitzroy is an unusual blend of working class roots, hip gentrification, and a robust bohemian work ethic. Along Brunswick Street and its side streets, you'll find little independent shops where local clothes and furniture designers display their wares. There are specialist bookshops, funky record bars, and quality vintage clothing shops where browsing is the next best thing to buying. Gertrude Street is famous for its cuisine and art galleries, but if you want to buy an old-fashioned snooker table, there is a shop for that too. Small pubs still exist, tucked away on the corners of suburban side streets that serve up traditional Sunday roasts. Live music abounds, and the street performers play so hard you worry to tip them would ruin their concentration. Venture to the Spanish quarter on Johnston Street and you may even find street dancing. It is all happening amidst off-beat street murals and the shuffle of a very funky neighborhood that embraces both old and new.
