Shared the suckling pig with 5 friends recently and it was very, very good. Great crackling, plenty of meat and the sides that come with the pig are excellent. Standout salad was the apple coleslaw which complimented the pork perfectly. Service was excellent.

Very impressed with the food, seemed pretty reasonable prices. We ordered a 1/4 pig and was plenty of meat for 4, the salads were quite good. The beer was very good also. It's has a feel as a different place with a different kind of menu but a great experience.

Tasty, different, dishes. With sharing in mind, there are some inventive and tasty dishes. Nothing is ordinary or typical of any other cafe or restaurant I've eaten at in Melbourne. Great space, friendly staff, all round fun.

Great for groups, birthdays, a bit of fun, they have a brewary too. Doesn't look like much on the outside, but a pleasant surprise and all round tasty.

I have been to the True South few times for Sunday lunch as I live nearby and always very happy with the vibrant menu's choice Mauro (the Argentinean chef) has put together travelling around the world and the great beers brewed in the place. Beautiful venue also for functions and banquets upstairs with great view of the Bay.

Exceptional food and service. We had Saffron Risotto, lentils, black spuds and duck. Excellent wine and beer list. Very cosy without being too close. Lots of families enjoying the good food. very good knowledgeable staff.
