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 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

Came here with a friend who is from Spain and told me they had the best spanish croquettes in Melbourne, just as her mother used to cooked them. The spanish chef sticks to the original recipes for a traditional spanish meal. Croquettes, Oysters and Lamb ribs are simply delicious! They have a seasonal menu and they change it often, so... More

The Robert Burns Hotel is home to a very good Spanish restaurant. I didn't notice any signage to indicate the restaurant was there, Word of mouth I guess. Ordered several dishes to share in our party of five - the squid ink paella was scrumptious!

We have been here a lot and love it. Great atmosphere and the food is consistently yummy and not overly expensive. It is spanish believe it or not. The steaks are excellent and the paella never goes wrong.

Probably the worst paella I have eaten, there are tables out side to sit at. We asked for candles as it was really dark and we could not see our food, the waitress kindly gave as 1 tea light candle.. There were 5 people seated at table.

So an evening out with friends was ruined by the Robert Burns Hotel Restaurant. Had a lovely dinner planned with 5 friends and of course the Paella was ordered as it is a specialty. Unfortunately as the waiter was bringing the hot paella pan to the table he slipped and basically dropped the pan in my lap. My reflexes pushed... More
