    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.

    Being on the fodmap diet so excited to be able to order anything on the menu ! Scallops entree was very nice. My partner loved his schnitzel although his chips were a bit over cooked . My duck was okay but was disappointed my roasted vegetables were very burnt, should not have been served out like that.

    Lots of yummy dishes to choose from for the those with dietary requirements- coeliac, low FODMAP, vegetarian, etc. Our food did take some time to arrive, but the pulled lamb sandwiches were delicious. Our fave dessert, the Italian meringue lemon tart was not available this time, but the caramel slice was awesome.

    It was a sensational gluten free restaurant. So much choice and delicious options! Service was friendly and quick. Great to know you can go somewhere and eat anything and everything off the menu. Coffee was sensational, wine and beer great and the bunless burger is amazing! The desserts were slightly on the expensive side and I would not have normally ordered it for that reason but it was shared but delicious!! We were a group of 10 and everyone loved their meals.

    I've been to Fox in a Box several times as friends and family members have special dietary needs which are so well catered for here. I've always enjoyed the food but found the service slow. Last night the service was better ( but we arrived at 5.45 for a pre theatre dinner so it was very quiet). My daughter's chicken Parma was excellent but my pork belly and risotto were quite disappointing. Also when I received a call back after leaving an inquiry about my booking, the girl who called me didn't have enough English to answer my questions. Previous visits would hav received a much higher rating.

    Hi Julie thank you for the feed back... I'm sorry to hear the Pork Belly was not to your liking, would you care to elaborate further so I can address it better...

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
