Nice pub with wonderful hosts and staff! OK! I was only here for beers, but everything went so well, and they were so helpful and friendly. I will definitely go back, and also try the delicious sounding menu!

Best Spanish restaurant I've been so far in Melbourne. Great quality-price ratio and real friendly staff. Highly recommend the croquetas, garlic prawns and grilled chorizo for starters. Pork Belly and squid ink paella are spot on as well.

Comfortable environment, friendly and well informed staff, good food. All the starters were delicious, melt in the mouth croquettes, calamari and an awesome vegetable tart, delicious. With your taste buds now activated we were ready for the main(s), not one but two paella dishes, seafood and the rabbit and chicken, both beautiful. Sipping on a glass of red or an... More

Visited the Robert Burns last night with friends and ordered a selection of tapas and a bottle of wine. The croquette specials were tasty, the charcuterie platter large and varied, the garlic prawns delicious, and the pork belly divine. I'll definitely be returning with my partner soon. Highly recommended. I can't wait to sample the gorgeous looking paella.

Went with a couple of Spanish background friends who knew their Spanish food. Left it to them to order. Loved the cured meats and bread, the croquettes, the chorizo and calamari for entree, the paella was excellent and plentiful. Creme brûlée was great but the Spanish donuts were too crisp - they almost snapped like a breadstick. Great atmosphere and... More

Very enjoyable. The food was very fresh, I had a wonderful monkfish, and the menu is full of variety. The lunch special includes a main meal and drink for either $14 or $12. The service was very friendly and fast. it was a busy Friday lunchtime, but the staff were very professional, and, not on the lunch menu, they made... More

They have an amazing steak menu. Great pub, with excellent food and their tapas is surprising good - not just 3 olives in a dish, authentic tapas of proper proportions and bursts of flavour. Worth a visit. Great atmosphere.

We dined here on a Monday night. We were pleasantly surprised that all wine under $100 was half price if you bought a meal. The food looked great, wonderful tapas and a very good wine list. We had a meat feast, all was great quality but we were kept waiting for ages for our main course and when it arrived... More

The Robert Burns Hotel is the home of truly traditional Spanish cuisine, with a very Scottish name. Spaniard Urbano Gutierrez introduced the Spanish flavour to this Australian pub in 1984, back when variety in the local hospitality market was much harder to find. The Robert Burns legacy has since been passed to a new, fresh, yet still Spanish team - who bring the authentic tastes and cultures of their homeland to the Robbie Burns on Melbourne's iconic Smith Street. Patrons of all kinds are welcome and our venue is family and kid-friendly, too. If you are looking for Spanish Cuisine then dine in the restaurant, relax in the courtyard, enjoy drinks and tapas in the front bar or the wine room, and don't forget to check out Robbie's special Spanish flavoured events.
