Had a delicious lobster at the Box on collins the other night before going to the regent theatre. Such a convenient location, and friendly service. Food was delicious, would definitely go back. Would recommend highly.

We want to thank Adrian and team for a fabulous meal and service to match. Expect absolute quality and personal service. We will be back for the cray fish with prawns and Tassie salmon.

We had been here before, and were excited to visit again, however were disappointed. The serving sizes were terrible for the amount you were paying and the seafood wasn't spectacular. Poor value for money. Service was good.

Yeah it was ok. Thought we would splurge a bit before seeing a show as it's beside the theatre. Only very specialised seafood and a few pasta dishes. Portions are good, food was very very average. Wine was over priced. Wouldn't go back.

On a recent conference trip to Melbourne my colleagues and I had dinner at this Collins Street icon. The menu is very good with a variety of tempting dishes. The wine list in my opinion is a little too expensive. My beer battered calamari entree was so small it was consumed in two mouthfuls, and I could still continue my... More
