Izakaya Den is a bi tricky to find, like many Melbourne venues, its tucked away unmarked, down a flight of stairs - but definitely worth finding! Fabulous menus, great atmosphere - I'll be back!

ID had a prawn special tonight. Grilled with spices. In addition the sashimi, tatami and miso were all really good. But it's the service that matters. ID has great service. And top ambience. And good information about sake. Izakaya is still good. We recommend it.

Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways
tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary
feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the
city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques,
throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You
never quite know what you’ll find around the next
corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and
