The food was fantastic, a real sensory and taste experience delivered in an exciting way, it really was a “food journey”! The staff are fantastic and very knowledgeable about the food and the menu, and always willing to engage and answer questions. The ambiance was wonderful and the background music a perfect touch. It was the best way to celebrate our wedding anniversary!

From walking in the door to sitting down you feel comfortable and know it’s going to be a great night. The 4 course set menu was a lovely surprise and each course was explained and yummy

About IDES

It’s exciting when a restaurant is described as welcoming and irreverent. You know that you can expect some pretty exciting dishes, especially when IDES is also known for being a place of contrasts. A quick look at the location of this Collingwood favourite shows exactly what they mean – set among cafes and casual eateries, IDES stands out as a uniquely sophisticated offering. Diners will be tempted by rock oysters, fried chicken and saltbush lamb… or glacier toothfish with sugar snap peas and wasabi leaf. Contrasts, see? Try their four course set menu for a curated experience, culminating in The Black Box which looks exactly as it sounds but is actually filled with pear, buttermilk and caramel. Not to be missed!
