Sit on the terrace and enjoy an aperitif before moving into the stunning dining room to sample Chef Gerard Curto's delectable menu. Start with a stunning entree of air-dried tomatoes with ajo blanco, smoked eel and shiso or opt for Freemantle octopus with tarama, smoky paprika and charred onion. For main course choose a premium grass-fed beef fillet with piquillo peppers and yellow roots or Mooloolaba swordfish with pipirrana, parsley and lemon.
To fully appreciate all that Epocha has to offer, come with a partner or a small group of friends and take advantage of one of their exquisite tasting menus.
Every Sunday Epocha hosts a family-style spread for lunch with roast beef, chicken, lamb or pork being at the centre of the meal. The meats rotate weekly so be sure to check online to know which is on offer.
Insane food and quality for the Sunday roast. Pricier wine...watch out for that. So good - will be back lots!
Lovely for a date or night out with a group of friends.
I booked Epocha for my wife's birthday dinner. The menu looked great and the reviews were promising. However, we did not enjoy our meal at all. My wife's pork was lukewarm and my marlin was quite tough. The only dish we enjoyed was the octopus. We also ordered duck fat potatoes but they were overcooked and not seasoned at all. Perhaps we caught the kitchen on a bad night but we will not be returning.
The wine choices by the glass were limited. My meal was good but as I had the swordfish i felt it was a bit bland.
I loved my dining experience at Epocha. The service was friendly, accommodating and measured. Not too much fawning, which gets annoying & yet never far away when needed. The food was superb. Delicious and interesting Spanish influenced starters including super tasty razor prawns, steak tartare with a twist and braised baby leeks.. followed by perfectly cooked and surprisingly juicy roast chicken, gravy and duck fat roast potatoes with a fresh and interesting cress salad to balance out the richness. I will come again!
I love coming here!! The Sunday roast is just beautiful and staff are just as beautiful as well!! Thank you ♡♡♡
Subpar and overpriced food. No concept and mediocre service
We always go to Epocha for St Valentines and our wedding anniversary Aug14th
Wonderful Sunday lunch. The lamb was amazing and roast potatoes were perfect. Will be back again soon to sample the weekday menu.
I’ve been to Epocha three times now and my husband four times. We visited on Friday 7th Feb. on that particular night I just felt the entrees weren’t quite as good as usual. I had a prawn horseradish dish and my husband a steak tartare. But the main swordfish dish and duck potatoes were outstanding and the waitors/ waitresses service was excellent given our time constraints in getting to a live show.
We really enjoyed our dinner at Epocha. The food was delicious and the service outstanding. Our wonderful waiter went out of his way and took special care of us. And to top the evening we received a complimentary birthday dessert complete with candle. I highly recommend it.
Love returning to Epocha, the service is always friendly and attentive.
The food is great.
Look forward to returning
We had a family meal here and it was excellent in every respect. Highly recommend.
We chose this restaurant based on the good reviews
We certainly must have gone on a bad night
The food , service and general feel was pretty ordinary
Terrific meal. We went for the Sunday lunch special which was delicious and excellent value at $50. Lovely feel
Great location, Great food and GreT service. Highly recommended
We have a wonderful dining experience at Epocha. It has very stylish and interesting decor. The Wait team were all brilliant ... the service was truly excellent. Seriously delicious food. The only thing that was a Letdown was the Wine List ... it is prohibitively expensive. It is also 95% European wines which is something I personally find irksome when Australia produces so many exceptional wines ... support for one's own producers is very important.
A gem. Great food, wonderful people. Definitely returning.
We went for the Sustain two-course meals (initially planned for three-courses but were too full to have the dessert), the service is fantastic, and the food is delicious! We love the beef tartare and tuna crudo. We also enjoyed the cocktails specially made by the staff!
As always great food and service by the team at Elyros.
Following Angie's advice, I surrendered to Epocha and had a really excellent five-course meal. Guy was a very attentive host and sommelier, and the wine pairings were really on point. I think the first dish — some kind of puree with something related to almonds — really stole the show, with a really interesting texture. That said, everything was great.
The ambiance of this place is really something.
Strongly recommend (I've already convinced a few people in my office to swing by soon!)
Food service outstanding. Should have at least two hats. Our favourite restaurant in Melbourne. Xx
Staff are so attentive but not hovering. The food is always exquisite and fresh. The staff’s knowledge on food and wine is extensive and appreciated. And their coffee is THE BEST! Am never disappointed in all the times I’ve been
Absolutely delightful. Thoughtfully prepared, presented and delicious. Can’t wait to go back.
Just love this place. Has never ever disappointed from the greeting at the door to the goodbye, nothing to be improved.
Our first visit to Epocha. Service was excellent, starters and main courses were great, bur desserts just didn't quite get there for a top restaurant. Nevertheless, we will be back.
Excellent food. Ambience could be improved with more warmth. But overall a lovely experience.
Needed more dessert options and wine by the glass was expensive and selection was not great.
Seriously one of my favourite places ever. Amazing food and wines. The service is incredible and the space is grand!
Had the Sunday lunch - was the best - food/value for money - delish!
Epocha's food is as good as ever - the ingredients reflect the seasons, and the cookery reflect the chef's thoughtfulness. Fantastic!
We had our first experience of Epocha last Sunday and loved the set menu approach. Firstly, the five-course Sunday roast provided a wonderful range of flavours and because it is a set menu on the day allows Epocha to keep the costs lower to provide best value for money. Service was warm and personal without being overbearing and the lovely terrace house setting is just perfect.
Consistently excellent in service, atmosphere and a food quality. Adorable venue, lovely owner and staff members. Sensational and engaging in every visit. They’ve been around for 7 years and it’s easy to see why!
Sunday roast with all the trimmings and lovely service, as always. Can't wait to come back!
We had a wonderful night Saturday 14 September ... amazing food, wine, fortunate to meet the chef who was gorgeous, told us working history and even gave away a couple of his recipes! Not really ... just helped us out with our decipher of the salad dressing ingredients ... we were delighted.
Angela the Maitre d was a great wealth of information, meticulous with our service. Cannot praise our experience highly enough.
We will return!
5 course degustation with matching wine was perfect
Very nice Victorian style terrace with simple and elegant decoration. Our five course meal was delicate, well balanced and beautifully presented. Service was friendly and attentive.
Everything about Epocha is a delight. Situated in a lovely Victorian terrace, the interior has the ambience of that style. Service was friendly and impeccable but not intrusive. Food was really great and the wine list - which focuses on wines of the world - was amazing! It’s a quality establishment all round and you’d expect to pay for that experience. However we felt the cost was well worth it and recommend Epocha unreservedly. Enjoy!
Would definitely go there again. We went fathers days with a set menu, would be keen to explore their other menu's
An elegant, rustically chic interior that nods to history with a subtle blush of Melbourne understated cool. Minimal ambient noise and a mix of good music at the right level made for easy conversation. We loved the attentive, timely, and pleasant service across five exquisite courses of seafood, vegetables and dessert. The chef delivered sumptuous joy with every course and sommelier complimented, consulting and matching perfect recommendations our meal and tastes. Most definitely, our new ‘fave’. 5 Stars.
