Wonderfully tasty Spanish food!

Went to the "Robby Burns" with another couple and had a wonderful meal. Got a selection of entrees which included Croquetas, Calamari, (which was very tender), Pimientos and Pork Belly. Croquetas and Pork Belly were the stand out winners. The waitress then recommended we get Paella for 3 people... read more

My old mate Geoff... More

High quality food cooked by Spanish speaking staff in a friendly pub setting. Great wine list. A little over seasoned so it may be good to 'hold the salt'.

Being a Scotsman on holiday in Melbourne I expected the Robert Burns (Scotland's national bard) to serve traditional Scottish fare like haggis, tatties and neeps, ( haggis, potatoes and turnips for those not Scottish)imagine my surprise to find that it was a Spanish restaurant. On being shown to our seat by a friendly female member of staff I was astonished... More

Love the Bobbie Burns courtyard for a lazy Saturday lunch away from the shopping bustle. Grab a steak, burger, fish & chips or the baked eggs with a beer or glass of wine for around $17. The staff a mostly Spanish and great. Stop in for dinner and have the seafood platter, it's all grilled and very generous.

its been a while since our last time at the restaurant at the Robbie Burns Hotel and it was time for a return visit. There were four of us including a Spaniard, his wife and my wife and I who enjoy Spanish food a lot. We started off with croquetas de bacalao (dried salted cod). Delicious and creamy was the...
