    No evidence at all of being Argentinian. The Calamari was thin, dry and one of the worst I have ever tasted. Will certainly never visit again and surprised it is in Fork.

    The food and service were superb. I loved that there were plenty of vegan options. The pasta dish I ate was so flavoursome. Thanks for a wonderful lunch.

    Great for those with dietary requirements or allergies or even those who aren't dietary challenged but want a lovely local meal. Fox in the Box is a restaurant that caters to folk who have dietary issues like gluten intolerance, coeliac disease and those who can't tolerate garlic or onion in their food. The food is lovely and on this occasion we had the scallop starter followed by the calamari which comes with 3 different and beautfiully flavoured sauces as well as a parma. All the food was lovely and the waitress was very attentive and the whole meal was a nice experience. I have been to Fox in the Box before and I will certainly go back.

    Went on a Sat night. The food was good. The service was a bit slow, but they were apologetic.

    The food was delicious! The service was wonderful! Best of all though, was the fact that I am gluten free and dairy free and had so much of the menu available to me. My husband who does not have allergies also thoroughly enjoyed the visit. We will be back!!

    After endless google searches to find a place which caters to my allergies, I came across this local gem! Fox in the Box has endless choices which catered to ALL allergies! - My partner (with no allergies) even said it was the “best steak [he’s] ever had!”. We enjoyed salt and pepper calamari, duck confit w berries, steak with mustard sauce, pudding noir and lemon meringue pie, absolute heaven of a place to indulge!! Reasonably priced and good sized meals. The place is small and the atmosphere could slightly improve with a few extras however, my partner and I agreed to be back for the great service and absolutely DIVINE food!! I highly recommended Fox in the Box for people who have numerous allergies and want a care free night out knowing that everything their eating is safe, and others can enjoy the food too!! Thanks Fox in the Box! Look forward to seeing you again soon :)

    the first time in many years I could order straight off the menu without having to micro manage the contents of each dish. Lemon meringue pie was delicious.

    We love this restaurant. We have two coeliacs in the family so we meet up here, from all over Melbourne, for family dinners/lunches. Food is fantastic and you would not know that it is all gluten free. Something for everone. Highly recommend.

    The fact that this restaurant is entirely gluten free makes for a stress-free coeliac dining experience. I was able to look at the menu and choose anything I wanted and didn’t have to ask lots of questions. So so rare

    The coffee and tea could have been better - they were not very hot.

About the restaurant

The Dieter´s Dream Fox in the Box is a restaurant that takes cool to an all-new level. Living in a charming townhouse, this restaurant has a hip and stylish interior made up of hanging bulbs and fascinating frames. But Fox in the Box is much more than just a trendy place to hang out it´s a specialist in tummy-friendly foods! Clare Hetzel and Sally Bowen created Fox in the Box with a vision of inclusiveness for people with food intolerances. Their current chef Tim swears that they never cook with wheat, gluten or onion! How can this be, you may ask? Well, their modern Australian and Mediterranean-inspired food is made up of the finest gluten-free and low-fructose foods, tasty flavours and spices that won´t hurt your belly. We loved the pasta and sandwiches all made from delicious and gentle-on-the-belly grains. Desserts like the pancakes that are as tasty as any wheat-based recipe. It´s all so delicious; you won´t even notice the difference! Sensitive tummy? Forget feeling left out at dinnertime, Fox in the Box is for you. Best dish: Crispy Skinned Atlantic Salmon
