This is our home - Epocha was born in a turn-of-the-twentieth-century building called Montefiore House. Built in 1884, four years after the completion of the Melbourne Exhibition buildings during a period of boom in Melbourne for industry and trade following the 1880 World Trade Exhibition. The House was owned in that time by a woman by the name of Hannah Maybelle who now lends her name to our bar and function room upstairs.
Looking for somewhere to host a business meeting? We can provide the space and tailor catering packages to suit your needs, including a working lunch so that you can power through the day to get the most out of your meeting.
Our Chefs are our most important asset, they are the hardworking force in our kitchen who help to deliver the food to your table.
It's all in the details they say. We love the beautiful mediterranian tiles on our tabletops!

  • This place is amazing, great atmosphere, the perfect place for a cold Melbourne winter night. The quality is second to none. I have dined at top end restaurants and this place gets 10 out of 10 for me, the best by far.
