“Great Hidden Venue”
Reviewed 16 May 2013

Firstly you have to be careful you dont walk past this place because if you do you will be tremendously disappointed!!!!

I stumbled across this little beauty while searching online for whiskey bars in Melbourne. Found E.D.V and booked myself and my Girlfriend in for a Friday night out.

I of course went for the huge selection of whiskeys and scotchs which to be honest blew my mind. Luckily for my girlfirend who doesnt share my same enthusiasm in drinking the finest single malts, there was also a large selection of cocktails to choose from.

Having gone for the drinks i wasn't expecting much from the food, but bloody hell was i pleasently surprised, the food was outstanding!!! Make sure you have the Duck pate, it is still one of the single most delicious things i have eaten!!!!

Overall the hole night was outstanding the drinks the service the food and the atmosphere all 5 star. Will make it a regular spot for us!!

“great food & drinks”
Reviewed 6 January 2013

Despite being a little difficult to find as there is no signage - just look for the big wood door down Malthouse lane - once you enter you are taken to another time and place. Relaxing, very private where you can forget the hustle and bustle of the city. The service and food were both excellent. We are not cocktail drinkers generally but the suggestions from the waitress were just want we liked. It is a great menu to share and taste, a couple of dishes from the small and slightly more each then one larger dish was more than enough food for us. Five dishes in all shared, a couple of cocktails and a bottle of wine was about $150 and we walked away comfortably full. Great food, great drinks, great service.
