Since its induction into the Melbourne foodie scene in March of 2014, Sheraton Melbourne Hotel has continued to set new standards and raise the bar for Melbourne 5-star hotels with each of its three premier dining hangouts excelling in their own niche markets.
Terrace Bar on level three of the hotel was recently awarded Hotel Bar of the Year at the 2016 TAA (Vic) Awards for Excellence and offers an exquisite and contemporary designed outdoor setting with views overlooking Little Collins Street. To celebrate its most recent accolade, Terrace Bar has partnered with Champagne Bollinger to bring forward a new high-end menu featuring its signature dish of Sautéed Scallops on a Seaweed and Citrus Salad paired with Bollinger special cuvée NV.

Brought to you by the team behind the cult Hutong Dumpling Bar, East offers Melbourne’s most innovative interpretation of traditional Chinese flavours with a wine and cocktail list to match. EAST is open Monday – Sunday for lunch and dinner.
Little Collins St Kitchen is a bistro-style restaurant designed by Melbourne-based design studio Hecker Guthrie. The signature restaurant pays homage to the grand European architecture and high-end retail outlets of neighbouring Collins Street whilst presenting an area that feels comfortable, welcoming and ultimately homely. Design elements have been chosen to create a contemporary and domestic dining experience while American oak furniture is complemented with striking brass detailing, white tiles, Italian marble and dove grey accents.
Executive Chef Achim Herterich is inspired by the kitchen and the food that can be masterfully produced within it. At the age of five he would sit under his mother’s kitchen table creating imaginary masterpieces, by nine he was baking fresh bread and by twelve he was cooking meals for his family. Now in his third decade of his career, he is creating culinary works of art from Preserved lemon and herb infused ricotta gnocchion a fricassées of Moreton Bay bugs, prawns and parmesan shavings to Chocolate parfait with caramelized popcorn candied hazelnut and chocolate ice cream (pictured)which feature on the spring menu. Little Collins St Kitchen Is open Monday – Sunday from 6:30am – 10:30pm. The Signature Sheraton Seafood Buffet can be enjoyed from Wedesday – Saturday for dinner and Sunday Brunch.
