We arrived to have predinner drinks in this very busy bar with my daughter and her friends. Discovered it was Happy Hour! Although it was very busy the service was great. We didn't have to wait long to order drinks or to get them. The...staff very welcoming and friendly. The crowd reduced when Happy hour finished and we stayed for some dinner. Lovely, tasty food with Peruvian twist. They serve pisco cocktails as well as gin and tonics, beers etc. A memorable experience.More

Thank you Heather for taking the time to write this wonderful review. Glad that you got to spend the evening with us, family + friends. See you for more Pisco Sours soon

Read a few reviews of HH and you'll get the picture. The service is excellent,Jonny makes you feel at home and is happy to have a bit of a chat,and guide you through the offerings. The ambiance is great for a quiet meal or a...bit of a party. Music is good and not overpowering. The drinks selection is very good, and the Piscos definitely worth trying. As for the food, pretty much anything you try will be a delight. We particularly enjoyed the chicken and lamb skewers,the Tartar de Atun and Jalea.cerviches very good too. This place is a MUST and definitely worth return visits. Would love to see one open in Sydney too!More

The food is excellent the drinks are great, gotta love a Pisco try the coconut and chilli it will blow your mind. All set in a great location. What really sets this place apart from the crowd is the engagement, passion and obvious pride that...the staff have in their product and brand and clientele. Quite simply outstanding go see for yourself.More

Mjr1234, What a lovely review! Many thanks for enjoying our narrative ( and the coconut chilli pisco!) Our staff ARE very proud of everything here. Hope to see you again soon

We recently dined at Harley House on a Tuesday evening & began with pisco sours which were excellent. We then shared their flight of three ceviches (which I believe is a Tuesday special event). All were absolutely delicious (especially the Hawaiian one)! We shared a...number of plates with all food being really good (loved the scallops!). And... the service was excellent. A very good dining experience.More

Ceviche Tuesday is the best day! So glad that you enjoyed your time with us. The scallops are fantastic. A little flavour bomb Many thanks for taking the time to review us and we hope you can join us again soon

WOW! We have never been to this place before, and I am so happy I chose this bar/restaurant! Firstly, our waiter (sorry didn’t get his name but he was tall with a beard!) he was ridiculously knowledgeable on all the food and drinks, the service...was just amazing. Secondly the food.. just wow. So much flavour! Its tapas style and the dishes are perfect for sharing. The two that stood out to us the most was the Ceviche (we had the mexican tuna) - the ceviche packed a punch with flavour and all the ingredients were so fresh! And they gave you a really good amount of tuna! The second dish we loved was the scallops! Great size, cooked perfectly! Just incredible. All the food was great but these two were the stars of the night for us!! Thirdly, the cocktails! Their signature Pisco Sours are to die for!! We tried all of them.. be rude not to really!? Our favourites were the original Pisco Sour and the Coconut Pisco Sour! YUM! Cannot recommend this place enough. So glad we went here before leaving Melbourne. If we lived here we would come every weekend!! Make sure you book a table as it was very busy!More

What an amazing experience of Latin American food! Wait staff take you on the Peruvian journey and the food is a flavour bomb in your mouth! Pisco Sours are the best in Melbourne and they have nailed the edgy eclectic basement location!!!!
