About The Denn

A powerful newcomer along the buzzing Westgarth strip down Northcote’s High Street, The Denn is a hideaway that serves as a jack-of-all-trades when you’re on the hunt for sunkissed Mediterranean flavours with a distinct Italian accent, an expansive selection of crafty beers, fine international wines and innovative cocktails, and multiple, warmly furnished spaces for you to kick back in and indulge. Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, The Denn also sports some fantastic options for private hire. Next time you’re looking to celebrate in style, check out the 50-seater mezzanine room, with an adjoining semi-private room known as The Barbaresco, the 75-seater or 130-standing Dining Crown that overlooks the main dining area and the open kitchen. Whether for a casual meal and a glass or two or for your next big bash, this Melbourne gem deserves a reservation.

We went for lunch and was welcomed promptly by a very friendly waitress. The restaurant has lovely atmosphere, interesting decor and very reasonably priced menu. The food was very fresh and tasty....my friend said it was the best scotch fillet she's ever had and my chicken risotto was so delish and filling!! Would definitely go back.

Booking was easy via the web. The ambience was great and the food lovely. Downside was that only 2 floor staff were working the bar and floor and as the restaurant filled they were less attentive. Finally, the mint in the water made it taste like the water you get at the end of a dentist visit. Other than that the evening was really pleasant.

The service was great. We got everything we asked for catered to. The only thing I didn't enjoy was the coffee, the brew seemed a bit bitter. Other than that, we were all really happy. The food was excellent. Thank you.

Service and atmosphere were fantastic, food was only ok. We ordered 3 tapas dishes and a pizza to share between two of us, the pizza was delicious, but I honestly could have passed on the tapas dishes.
