A fun spot for dinner. We had the deed me menu. Not sure if the value was there & if we would have saved if we had ordered the same items a la carte. We were not informed that we needed to vacate the table for another party until 10 minutes before, which made the end of the evening quite rushed. Wine list was great & the service fantastic!
Another lovely meal in Hell
Service was lovely, food delicious as always.
“It was very nice.... service was friendly and pretty efficient. I’d go again if I was in the area”
From my dining partner who lives on the other side of town ;)
They ticked all the boxes. Amazing experience!
From the initial knock on the door, we were welcomed in & despite our table not being ready immediately we were guided to populate the bar & within a few minutes we were guided to our table and offered drinks & menu explained. The food was delicious, the service was outstanding & overall a great experience. Will definitely be back sometime soon! Thank you 😊
My fiancé and I ate here on Sunday afternoon with family to celebrate our engagement. The ambience was lovely (could have been a bit warmer temperature wise), and the service flawless. We got the feed me menu, everything was delicious. Definitely try the french onion soup and the crème brûlée
Had a beautiful birthday dinner at Hell of the North. Staff were friendly, professional and excited about the food and drinks they were providing. Food was delicious, wine was beautifully matched. Overall, an experience worth recommending.
Sensational food and atmosphere, the cocktails were a delight also. A great dining spot. The staff knew their business with in-depth answers to all questions related to the menu, personable and great at making recommendations.
Will definitely be back.
I've easily been to Hell of the North over 15 times now over the years, and I can easily say it's one of my favourite restaurants in Melbourne - which is a huge call!
When you get here and you want to make it a special night make sure you ask for the cellar door wine list - the wines are bottles you just won't easily find and are absolutely outstanding. Well worth making a visit here - I may go again this weekend!
We came here on a Saturday evening a bit earlier than our booking time but were warmly welcomed by the staff.
Ambience was great and food was overall very tasty (just a bit salty).
Hell of the North is hella cosy and has amazing service. :)
Delicious French cuisine for a reasonable price. The barramundi was outstanding. Loved the beef tartare too!
While the food was delicious albeit small portions I felt the wait ( an hour) to receive our order was excessive
Hell of the north was an old favorite and remains top of their game. The feed me offer for the table was delicious and the right amount. Couldn’t have been happier. Thanks Hell
Food was excellent, but service left a sour taste. We were served by 2 people: A bearded dude who seemed like he didn't care about serving us and a really nice girl that was super helpful.
We encountered the bearded dude first — he dumped the menus and ran, didn't even bother to take our drink order. We waited for over 20 mins (seated at 8:50pm) then finally the nice girl served us until the end of her shift at which time we had to go back to the bearded dude. At no time did he ask how things went which is a shame because I wanted to let the kitchen know the creme brûlée tasted burnt (which was the only minor complaint I had about the food).
The thing was though the bearded dude was being super helpful to the table next to us, so who knows, maybe he was just tip fishing for people who "look" like they have fat wallets.
I would return to this venue, the food was amazing ,staff friendly and knowledgeable with food and wine recommendations .
The atmosphere was cosy and inviting .
Every time we go it is an experience and what an experience. The food is amazing and the service is fantastic. Just love it.
Amazing food AND service!! A++++ Highly recommend and will be back again!!
The staff were very engaging and catered for our dietary needs very well. Food was lovely.
An amazing dinner and would definitely go again. However I would opt for a table with chairs next time
WE had a wonderfully special time at Hell of the North. We sat for over 3 hours and were cared for and served well all night. Mark was warm, funny and friendly and we trusted him with the tasting menu and wines to match. We were very pleased and hope to go again soon.
Good food, great staff, wine list did the job. The prices were reasonable. What more could you want.
This is the best place for a group of friends to catch up over great food and good wine.
Let the chef do the work and choose the feed me option.
A nice restaurant tucked away in a quiet street, great cocktails, champagne and wines on offer. The menu caters for all food types and the service compliments the atmosphere- unobtrusive. A great place to catch up with friends or a romantic night out. Hell of the North fails to disappoint.
We'd been wanting to visit Hell of the North for ages and finally made it this Saturday. We were not disappointed - it was brilliant. Great food, great wine and excellent service. Highly recommended.
Absolutely delish food and really lovely genuine staff. The dishes where unique and beautiful and lovely to eat. Lovely atmosphere and a genuinely enjoyable experience. Thank you xx
Large group booking with the feed me menu. Very good service.
Accommodated dietary requirements.
Hell of the north never disappoints, that gnocchi with Jerusalem artichokes - amazing!! Thanks for a fab night guys! 🤗
The food was superb as were the wines. We just let our lovely waiter lead us through the wines and he hit the spot w every recommendation... can i say beef tar tar .... yummm can i have that as entre main and dessert?? Amazing
What you pay is what you get.
Fine dining experience, excellent service, amazing food and good wine. If you want to impress your girl take her here.
Very good and attentive service. The small bites we started with were ok but the mains and sides were all excellent. Lovely cocktails and wine. Nice decor and lighting. Music was inaudible so a bit louder would have helped the ambience. Overall a very nice dining experience. Would definitely recommend.
Great restaurant. Staff very attentive without being in the way. Great wine list. Food exceptional. Reasonably priced. Must book!
Delicious food and cosy, relaxed atmosphere. Highlights were the chicken liver pate and gnocchi starters, although everything was tasty and well presented. The only negative would be the size and quality of the vegetable side dishes as these were small and quite basic for the price. Will go again.
The Pinot Noir from Geeling was amazing! As was the steak.
We went for dinner on Valentine's Day and indulged in a set menu. It was disappointing the choices in the set menu options after having seen the usual menu as the croquettes and tartare sound amazing but the menu options did not disappoint when we had them arrive at the table. The food is skillfilly prepared and the service is top notch.
-"Feed us" menu overpriced for one main, one entree, half a dessert per person.
-Little to no obvious French influence on food.
-If aiming for a fine dining crowd, don't give people a bowl of chips with ANYTHING.
-Ten mussels and a bowl of chips doesn't constitute a meal, unless you're eating at the counter of a pub.
Ambience nice, service good, building lovely, but could not recommend on the basis of the food. Felt like we were being taken advantage of for choosing the "Feed Us" option - I could forgive more easily if there was more food or a lower price, but at a fine-dining cost this was not good enough.
We had a great night at Hell of the North. I have been to the restaurant five times now, and each time the food has been excellent, creative and well balanced.
The "feed Me' menu comprises very good value for money and a great way to gain a feel for the different food selections available. It is a very generous mix of dishes. We last visited with friends some of whom did not eat meat, so the menu was tailored with greater variety of seafood/fish and vegetarian dishes. The result was a very well balanced meal.
The wine list is very good, well balanced and carefully selected.
The service is knowledgeable, efficient and friendly.
The ambience is relaxed and informal.
Family get together for 30th birthday.
Great service, delicious food with a very comprehensive wine list at competitive prices. What more do you need?
Food and service was good but unfortunately we had to share a table with a group of 5 and in an enclosed room. We were expecting just a table for 4 for a quiet fine dining but instead in a room of people talking loudly
We go here a bit and really enjoy the food. The only issue we have is the service which can be pretty iffy at times. We enjoy a warm and inviting environment and sometimes you get the feeling that you are an inconvience rather than a customer. However, had a pretty good night regardless.
