“We cannot recommend Epocha highly enough! It was the perfect venue for our intimate Melbourne wedding. Everything ran so smoothly. They have such an incredible level of expertise in what they do. The team are extremely professional, attentive, and warm. The food and wine were simply stunning. We had our ceremony in the upstairs area.

“Having our wedding at Epocha was amazing! We had such fantastic food and service on our wedding day. The venue is so beautiful. We didn't need to decorate it much at all except bring in some flowers. Everything went so smoothly leading up to the wedding and on the actual day. All our guests had so much fun!

Cannot recommend Epocha highly enough! It was the perfect venue for our intimate Melbourne wedding. Everything ran so smoothly - they have such an incredible level of expertise in what they do. All the staff are extremely professional, attentive and warm. Alana, the event coordinator, was so lovely to work with, extremely organised and supportive in helping us make the day just as we had hoped. The food and wine was simply stunning. We had our ceremony in the upstairs area and it was the perfect intimate space and created a gorgeous atmosphere. The terrace is beautiful and all we had to do was bring in a few flowers - everything was so easy!

Having our wedding at Epocha was amazing and we had such fantastic food and service on our wedding day. The venue is so beautiful that we didn't need to decorate it much at all except bring in some flowers. Everything went so smoothly leading up to the wedding and on the wedding day and couldn't have asked for a better day and special thanks to Alana the functions coordinator who was very friendly, accommodating and professional. All our guests had so much fun and Ange and all the staff made it such a memorable day. I would definitely recommend Epocha restaurant.
