Box on Collins is a fantastic seafood restaurant and the ideal place to grab a bite to eat before a show at The Regent. Recommendations: Oysters Bugs I wish we lived around the corner.

Was there on 31st Oct with a girlfriend - food is delicious but value for money I question this. No views. Comfortable Seating and art work is gorgeous. We had a fantastic waitress who was attentive and met all our needs - her boss was a bit strong in trying to sell us more wine when we'd had enough. Loved... More

Wandered by this place on a Friday evening and it was quite early, 5 PM but they said they would seat us inside. Great service, great food and since no one was there yet, able to have a conversation without shouting over others. The baramundi was perfectly cooked, fresh and absolutely delicious. For a starter we had the olives which... More

Wandering along Collins St & found this delightful restaurant for a relaxing afternoon of sublime food. We started with prawn spring rolls & calamari to share and were not disappointed. Both dishes were fresh and flavoursome & cooked to perfection. Mains were king prawns in butter, cracked pepper, spring onions with jasmine rice - yum! & mussels in garlic &... More

I have been here twice and each time the seafood has been excellent. A small place that's easy to miss on Collins. Right by the Ralph Lauren store. Not extremely fancy, just we'll prepared food in a very nice place. I would never pass up a chance to eat here.

What a wonderful experience, from the minute we walked through the door!! Cocktails were made to our request, along with a custom ordered seafood plate for two catering to exactly what we were after. Food was absolutely delicious too!!! The service was top notch... Couldn't have asked for a better experience!! All staff were extremely friendly and attentive to whatever... More

I did read the reviews before coming and as always that is a mixed bag of people’s opinions. But my opinion is that we had great service, the restaurant was buzzing, stylish and clean. Our meal was delicious, so all in all thank you very much for not only the last minute, getting us in the door without a reservation,... More
