European Restaurant and Function Venue melbourne

European Restaurant & Function Venue

Epocha is a contemporary European restaurant set in a stunning Victorian terrace on the city fringe of Melbourne, located overlooking Carlton Gardens, with the menu by Chef Gerard Curto.

Our seasonal menu draws inspiration from our European culture and its modern cuisines whilst using the best of local Australian produce.

Choose your selections from our ‘Sustain’ menu. Alternatively, Surrender to Epocha with our tasting menu.




Thursday to Sunday
12PM – 3PM


Monday to Saturday
5:30PM – Late

Epocha is closed on public holidays.

Our menus change as the seasons change, and we take pride in sourcing fresh produce to create dishes that highlight these ingredients and the seasons. An example from a previous Surrender Menu is the Octopus from the waters of WA, served up with kipfler potato, smoky spanish paprika and rouille. Chef Gerard is particularly excited with the range seafood in Australia, reflecting his love of the sea. #tastingmenu #surrender. #tastingmenu #surrendertoepocha #epocha #epochalove
Here's a dish for the seafood lovers - perfectly poached fillet of Blue Grenadier, with a Green Almond puree, batons of White Asparagus and finely sliced Morels.
Don't wait until the weekend to have dinner out. We're open for dinner everyday during the week from 5:30pm til late. With the warmer weather now in full swing and extended daylight in the evening, dining alfresco is the perfect way to finish off the day. We have plenty of tables in our front courtyard and on our balcony upstairs, why not drop in and visit us soon?
Do you love seafood? How about Barramundi? Here is a fillet of crispy pan fried Barramundi served  with Yellow Asparagus and Broadbeans. How delicious!

  • 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.
