Enjoyed the tasting menu (Grand Tour) with matching wines (classic). Food was exceptional, as well as the staff. Smaller servings of matching wines than I have enjoyed at other restaurants eg Vue de Monde, however sommellier was very attentive and knowledgeable. We booked and started early at 6pm when the restuarant was quiet. After 7.30 the restaurant was full and become somewhat noisy but not too bad. More

My partner and I shared our first anniversary dinner at Epocha with the 5 course Surrender and wine pairings and would happily dine here again. We were very well looked after by the attentive and cordial servers, with co-owner Angie Giannakodakis painting an interpretive picture for each course that made for a diverse culinary journey. The food was beautifully prepared and wine expertly matched, championing local Australian wines with their modern European style cuisine. Upon booking, as prompted I let the restaurant know we were celebrating our anniversary, dessert arrived with a happy anniversary message much to my partner's delight. Overall, a high-quality fine dining experience with great atmosphere at a fair price. More

We were seated in front of the kitchen and could watch the oysters being freshly shucked and other dishes being expertly prepared. Service was great. We ordered several small dishes to share and the waiter recommended just the right amount. The eel dish was a standout although everything was amazing. We're not dessert people but decided to try the chocolate souffle and tart tatin - both delicious! More

Great atmosphere, good food and really solid wine list. It wasn't very busy so was expecting slightly more attentive service as we had to wait 10 mins for second bottle of wine. Disappointing also that no Low Carb beers offered such as Pure Blonde as I live by a low carb diet, but do enjoy a few cold beers, particularly at lunchtime. This alone may well stop me returning, however love the vibe and food so will recommend to anyone. More
