About Box Seafood Restaurant

Fishing for great seafood in the heart of Melbourne's CBD? Head along Collins Street to find Box Seafood Restaurant, where an elegant interior of white-clothed tables set with flowers, vibrant artwork and plush drapes set the scene for reeling in fresh fish and shellfish, creatively prepared by a dedicated team of Chefs for your pleasure. Drawing from an abundance of fresh produce and regional wines, expect to salivate over starters of crispy soft-shell crab, coleslaw and yuzu chipotle aioli sauce or shallow-fried calamari with a wild rocket salad, citrus dressing and tartar sauce. Perhaps indulge in Moreton Bay bug halves, baked in a mornay and creamy cheese sauce, served with steamed jasmine rice and sautéed green beans on the side, best enjoyed with an icy glass of Sauvignon Blanc.
