So, I'm still unclear what the Scottish connection is with this Spanish restaurant, bar and venue. However, it really doesn't matter. The food is world class - even Spanish foodies I know come here regularly to get an authentic taste of home. The drinks options are all covered and the staff are great. I have no idea why this place... More

Three friends and I dropped in for mid week dinner. The girl with whom we placed our orders was sour and probably over worked. Two of our meals had sauce orders, both of which were wrong when they arrived despite me confirming the order because she looked like she originally wasn't really listening. One side never arrived, despite telling one... More

Robert Burns Hotel has a special lunch time fare - porterhouse steak with salad and fries (plus a few other options), with a glass of wine for only $15! Yum! I have been there twice now (with my daughters and my mum and we all love the food) and will be returning on a regular basis. The waiting staff are... More

I've been here several times and I will come back. The food is really Spanish, all the starters are great and the paellas are amazing, my personal favourite "black rice or squid in paella" is just one of the best I had out of Spain. The service is really good and in summer you can enjoy at the terrace. Definitely... More

A group of 8 of us ate upstairs. The table was so very wide that it was not possible to converse with the person opposite. Thus the diners could not communicate as one. This was a real downer for the evening. We should have eaten downstairs. The food was good but the value wasn't there. Not much on offer for... More

mobile review We ate a respectable meal there with wine in the bar area and when it came to paying I got more hassle from the bartender for not having my "tab card" than actually paying the bill. Honestly, if your'e not used to bar tab card culture like I am (I'm not Australian and new here) don't give your... More

The advertised lunch deals caught our eye as we shopped on Smith st. We had 3 delicious meals, fish, burger and chicken, the dishes were well presented and very tasty. Very good value and done if the friendliest staff in town, good all round experience.

First time diners to this venue. Didn't believe our friends who booked the restaurant that this pub would be associated with Spanish cuisine. So pleasantly surprised. The atmosphere was great. The menu had so much variety. All our meals looked and tasted great. Other diners meals also looked awesome so lm inclined to return to try what they had. Definitely... More

The inner-city area of Smith Street in Melbourne is home to many excellent cafes, factory outlet stores and is very much a part of Melbourne that is key to what makes the city a fun place. The non-traditional cafes is mixed in with some superb dining and if you are looking for a great coffee and breakfast than venture down... More

I met a friend in Collingwood and she suggested we popped into Robbie for lunch. I was expecting a little pub with bar food, but what i got was an amazing Spanish experience. The manager Jose, clearly from Spain, was super nice and so informative. He recommended the Paella, which we shared, along with some other delicious Spanish treats. Would... More
