“Best Meal In Australia!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 18, 2014

I think we ate literally every item on the menu!

Ok, not quite, but - you wont leave this place hungry!

The food was fantastic from start to finish. Using a sharing menu style format which is gaining popularity in many places, Hell of the North hits the nail on the head!

We ate from each section and every dish was well presented, really good in flavour and left us wanting more and more!

I cannot wait to go back again!

MUST TRY if you are going to Melbourne!

“Very, very good.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 8, 2014 via mobile

Dined here with friends & enjoyed the feed me menu & an amazing selection of wines.

House made rilettes & pate exceptional. Stuffed zucchini flowers with crab gorgeous.

Service very professional throughout the evening.

Wine list excellent, & the special cellar list truly superb.

Passionate, professional staff across the board in a fabulous restaurant fit-out.

These guys know food & wine & share it in volumes with style & international flair.

Will be back!

“A backstreet treasure”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 3, 2014 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Hidden in a back street this is a very good restaurant with an excellent menu and fabulous wine list. A challenge for vegitarians at times but meat eaters will rejoice at what's on offer.

“Great spaces, very good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 2, 2014 via mobile

Service varied between great and in attentive depending on whether the manager got caught up talking to clients. Food is encouraged to be shared which we did once between five of us but it wasn't served in a way appropriate for sharing - try portioning a small omelette between 5.
Has a variety of spaces which is great and not too squeezed or noisy. Wine list is overpriced as are all these kinds of places but had a great red hills cider instead.

“Well kept secret”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 14, 2014

Man, we went here over Christmas and I've been meaning to leave a review because it's so well hidden I just presumed not a lot of people knew about it. Turns out I was wrong...

Anyways, I can only echo what all of the other reviewers said. The service was superb, the wine list is brilliant. We went for the $65 feed me menu just like everyone else that's ever been here seems to have. The whole thing was fantastic, I will definitely be back the next time I visit. Great, great restaurant.
