Our hearts go out to everyone affected by the horrific bushfires which are ravaging our country.
We are overwhelmed by the courage, bravery and the selfless acts of kindness from the services, the volunteers and the community.
We also recognize the importance of the continued support that will be required to rebuild and support the fire-affected areas in unprecedentedly difficult times.
At Epocha, as an immediate response, for the foreseeable future Epocha will be adding an optional donation of $5 per person to our bills with our pledge to match every $5 collected. All funds raised will go directly to @cfavic and @wireswildliferescue
However, for us this is only the beginning. We intend to continue to give support in any way we can. We are moved by initiatives such as @spendwiththem and consequently we are reviewing our menus, wine list and offerings behind the scenes to look at ways to give ongoing support to our local farmers and producers.Together we can make a difference.Thank you from the Epocha team. 💚

  • 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.
