    Actually it was the pop-up restaurant Ladro operating out of Collins Kitchen so it is hard to assess what Collins Kitchen is usually like. The tortellini was great, and the veal cotoleto very good, though slightly undercooked as the meat next to the bone was still bleeding. However the anchovy with it was a great contrast. Service was quick and efficient once the restaurant opened (we arrived slightly early but had to wait while they were still getting ready)

    The Texakaya pop-up (until end of August) is a must try. The Ramen servings may be a bit smaller than normal though. but the have option to add extra noodles

    We loved dinner and the service but we booked online and received confirmation emails but when we arrived they did not have our reservation. This was a bit embarrassing as we were entertaining clients.

    Absolutely one of the worst meals I have had ! Smoked miso Cauliflower was half a burnt cauliflower plopped on a plate - there was no shiso and coriander salad on the plate (as stated on the menu) We also ordered the flounder which was passable snd the only thing that saved us sending the meal back

    The lamb was alright. The pork ribs were tasty in parts but dry in others and did not fall off the bone. Expected more for the price paid.

    Collins Kitchen has the best location for a pre show / concert / match dinner, located within walking distance to a few major stadiums. We love the food, great service and ambience! Whether it’s for lunch, high tea or dinner, you can’t go wrong!

    Went there for dinner during the week so the restaurant was not very busy and atmosphere was great. We had the roast duck which was their take of Peking duck with the pancake, it was nicely cooked but probably not worth $40 for a duck breast. Roast chicken was juicy with a lovely yoghurt sauce and we thought we would order an eggplant as our vegetable dish, and we got exactly that, a whole bbq eggplant. Our selections were all well prepared but were a bit of an hit and miss in the end.

    It was an Italian menu - but what we had is not even comparable to the local Italian café. We had the driest pasta lamb ragout I have even been served! All the other dishes were absolutely tasteless. A far cry when it was the talk of the town as the Plane Tree Café. Very sad fall from grace indeed. PS: Was here on Valentine's Day last year - Just as bad!

About the restaurant

A flawless affair. A part of the Grand Hyatt, in Collins Street, Melbourne, Collins Kitchen is a sleek, elegant restaurant with an open kitchen and lots of bustling staff. With impeccable service and an extensive menu, Collins Kitchen is a well patroned and widely considered one of Melbourne’s most versatile restaurants. Lovely wooden timber floors and sleek furniture gives this place a polished feel. The best seat in the house is overlooking Russell Street, in one of the cosy, intimate booths. Renowned for their High Tea, Collins Kitchen is inundated with Hen’s parties and Baby showers in the afternoon. Buffet style tables are scattered throughout the restaurant; each specialising in a type of food. Food display for the High Tea session is a work of art, with towers of cakes, biscuits and slices. Rustic wooden chopping boards with huge slabs of cheese, salamis and crackers are a nice touch for a hotel-style restaurant, giving the feel of ‘food-to-plate’. Chef’s try to source local Victorian produce, and you can see this reflected in the menu. Local Gundowring ice cream from the Kiewa Valley, Gippsland lamb and Victorian forest mushrooms all feature, and a ten-page wine list ensures you are sorted for a drink. Best Dish: Grilled Gippsland farm lamb loin.
