Angie has one of those faces you’re sure you’ve met before. Chances are if you love good food and wine and have a thing for exceptional service, you have definitely met her. Easily recognised from her years at the helm of The Press Club and days as part owner and conceptual designer of Hellenic Republic Brunswick, Angie’s experience and authentic love of hospitality has truly come to fruition in her ownership of new European favourites Epocha Carlton and Elyros in Camberwell. Respected equally for her impressive knowledge of Greek and old world wines as for as her legendary hospitality, she was most recently recognised in the 2015 Age Good Food Guide where she took out the CITI Service Excellence Award.




Originally from England, Guy initially trained in the hotel and events sector in London before relocating to Australia to pursue his fine dining career. After a period of time honing his skills at some of Melbourne’s finest (The Press Club, Rockpool and Greg Malouf’s MoMo) he and Angie started sketching their vision for Epocha together. Guy is a highly accomplished and experienced general manager, he brings attention to detail, impeccable timing and passion to the restaurant, as well as an English accent to the offering thanks to his British heritage.
