“Lunch at Little Creatures Dining Hall”
Reviewed January 8, 2013

I was in the Fitzroy area of Melbourne when I stumbled upon this place. Great food, great beer, great service, fantastic venue, and all reasonably priced (not super-cheap, but not outrageously over-priced). The venue is a converted warehouse with lots of different seating areas, and caters easily for groups large and small. The venue has a really cool atmosphere; kind of hip and quirky without being over the top. Lots of space so you don't feel like you're on top of the people next to you. It's Little Creatures, as in the brewery, so having food here is a great opportunity to try some fantastic beers (- or just go along for the beers!). The friendly staff who were very helpful, were also very knowledgeable of both the food and beers. If you're feeling hungry (or thirsty) in Fitzroy, then this place is definitely worth a visit.

“A must-visit if you're in Brunswick Street”
Reviewed December 18, 2012

A converted warehouse/industrial building, this restaurant is an absolute gem! The doorway opens into a huge, high-ceilinged room and the whole place was buzzing when we walked in at about 2pm. Close to Christmas, we could tell small office groups were having their festive year-end gatherings as they wore Santa hats or had sparkly accessories on.
The 3 of us were seated in a U-shaped booth and had great views of the entire room.
Food-wise, we had the fresh cut chips with garlic aioli which were addictive and then we shared a generously-sized thin-crust pizza - spiced meatball, tomato, oregano, mozzarella. The pizza can feed 2-3 easily. We finished off with warm cinnamon doughnuts - yummy!
Truly a must-go if you're in that part of town. The shops all along the street are definitely worth the walk and window-shopping. Across the street at 117, there's a really interesting shop called PanelPop which can mount/frame photos on natural wood blocks. Check it out on panelpop.com.

“Delicious Food, Great Beer”
Reviewed December 13, 2012

Little Creatures Dining Hall is a great place to eat and caters for large groups. Staff are fast, helpful and attentive. Food was delicious and the wait wasn't very long - Be sure to try the Hot Chips and Spicy Meatball Pizza. Their beer is fantastic as well.

Food was quite expensive but worth it. Only small downside is that we were asked to tip - which is unusual in Australia.

I liked the informality of Little Creatures. There was a great buzz and modern feel. Friendly staff. Good place to catch up with a group of friends.
