Collins Kitchen, situated in the beautifully renovated Grand Hyatt hotel offers a series of dining spaces, all furnished in elegant dark hues. Looking over busy Russell Street, the restaurant's lounge and main dining room are ideal for both business or pleasure. Open kitchen areas, each of which are trade specific such as "the wok and steamer", "grill" and "seafood", act as entertainment for diners.

With premier positioning in the heart of Melbourne CBD, this opulent hotel restaurant features a large open kitchen where patrons can watch the chefs conjour up international culinary delights. The sophisticated interiors feature chocolate furnishings, polished timber floors and a melange of booth and white linen-set table seating options. A traditional Grand Afternoon Tea is served a la carte on Saturdays 2.30pm – 5pm with an extended dessert buffet. Brunch is served each Sunday from 11:30am–2:30pm.


The kitchen spaces determine the food choices, which means there's something for all tastes. At breakfast, there's everything from muesli to congree while at lunch and dinner, guest can take a tour of the gastronomic world, starting with Italian prosciutto crudo, or opting for a simple and elegant Caesar salad. The lunch set menus are good value, providing a full meal from the sushi counter, deli, grill or wood oven. Steaks and seafood steal the show, however, with a range of cuts that give diners the option of grass- or grain-fed. In between meals there's a limited menu and a smart afternoon tea. The wine list is international with a leaning towards South Australian Shiraz and New Zealand Pinot. This lis is extensive, owing to the 2,700 premium bottle wine room. For pre or post meal drinks, head for the neighbouring RuCo bar which is a terrific venue featuring sculptures by Bruce Armstrong and a gorgeous selection of cocktails and cognacs.

This would have to be our own Collins Kitchen here at Grand Hyatt Melbourne. Guests are spoilt for choice as the wonder through our open kitchen sampling an array of international dishes from live cooking stations. Enjoy a taste of Japan with our fresh sashimi, a trip to Italy with a slice of crisp wood oven pizza, a serve of wokfried peppered wagyu an Asian favourite or the flavour of home with a succulent grilled Gippsland steak. I thoroughly enjoy being able to work with my culinary team out in front of our guests and open our kitchen up to showcase the theoretics of cooking
