“A side street gem of Fitzroy”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

We had a beautiful, relaxed dinner at Hell of The North tonight. A casual atmosphere with knowledgable, friendly staff and we had a delicious meal. The mussels were the highlight along with the duck rillets. Could not fault this experience.

“A little gem”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

Coming into town we checked Trip Advisor and found the Hell of the North highly recommended and we wholeheartedly agree with the previous reviews. The food was outstanding for the price, delicious flavours and gorgeous presentation. Do yourselves a favour - have the chocolate dessert, it was just wonderful.

“Could not fault it”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

Superlatives abound. The food was sublime, innovative and well presented. The service was attentive, cheerful and incredibly well informed. Food came out within a very short time of ordering, and that was with us ordering our main (shared as recommended) after eating our entree. The wine list was extensive interesting.
I have raved about this restaurant to all and sundry - Loved it

“Great food and service”
Reviewed February 2, 2013 via mobile

We had a wonderful dinner and experience at HOTN. The menu is short on options but those available are really good. The scallops with truffle and artichoke three ways was a revelation. The chocolate dessert special was sublime and a bargain at $12.
The crowd was predominantly 30 something's but we 40 something's loved it. Great service too.

“Fantastic if you can find it”
Reviewed January 26, 2013

Tucked away on Greeves St Fitzroy, you would never know this place was here. I walked past it trying to find it and then accidentally walked in the correct door. We had share plates and the food was delicious. The wine on offer is also of a good quality. I loved it. Menu could do with a few more options but maybe better to do fewer options well than risk some bad additions???? Definitely worth a visit but give yourself an extra few minutes to find the place.
