    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.

    Food was delicious. Staff were fantastic. But because my guests and I haven’t meet in a long time so we’re talking more than eating. I guess the staff didn’t know we haven’t finished eating and tried to clear our food. In the beginning felt abit hurried. Other than that it was brilliant! Much better than expected! Food was fantastic.

About the restaurant

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!
