Great service at IDES, very thoughtful staff and super creative cuisine is served with seasonal ingredients
Awesome restaurant where the staff and service is as good as the food, They accommodated us and an unsettled 6 month old to celebrate our 2nd year wedding anniversary and we’re extremely helpful and patient, would definitely go back and can’t wait
We had a great time here for my husband’s birthday. Service was attentive and friendly but not overbearing. Food was offbeat in the best possible way, and portions generous given the number of dishes. We did the alcoholic matchings too. Worth it.
Amazing service, great food. The staff were simply outstanding and extremely accommodating, specially because we were 40 mins late because of a delayed flight. The food sizes were just right and really yummy.
Absolutely great service and accommodating. We were 40mins late because of flight cancellations and delays. The food was amazing.
Food and drinks were very ordinary.
My fiance and I celebrated his birthday in Ides. It was a surprise dinner for him. We opted for a Four Course Menu and loved everything about it. I was addicted to their in house peanut butter and even served me an extra serving because I loved it. Service attention was impeccable. They even gave him a small birthday treat at the end. Food was beautiful and servings were portioned well. The mocktails we ordered were a perfect compliment to our meals too! Ides is eager to please. I haven't experienced a dining space that is casual yet so refined. This is a very fresh concept considering that it is in Melbourne. This is one of the topnotch places to go. Finding it wasn't difficult contrary to what people have said. You're missing half your life not going!
The fish dish could be better.
Great night with superb food and wonderful service. Thanks Ides you really delivered a special night for my 60th.
We had 4 cause tasting menu most of the items are seafood, first second and third i would like to try difference menu items. Out of four two causes are snapper.!! Snapper wings and snapper fillet.! There isnt any options to choose from.! Anyways we enjoy the dine it was my wifes birthday. Another experience. Good luck.!

Service wasn't very great. Food was below average.
Truly delicious food, beautifully prepared and presented, and top notch service.
Menu was just divine and the ambiance was great! Loved the whole dining experience. Staff were extremely friendly and accommodating to our needs!
A great place to catch up with friends and be treated to great food and great service, without being pretentious.
Fabulous degustation experience. Incredible variety of sublime dishes.
Very nicely presented and delivered fine dining. Expensive, but worth a visit.
Great fine dining restaurant. Very quaint.

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!
