The first thing that strikes guests when they arrive at Rupert On Rupert’s (yep) Rupert Street restaurant, set in a suitably ex-industrially-distressed but sensitively done up backblock of Collingwood, is the space itself, oozing quintessential but accessible cool. Mixing steel and repurposed shipping containers with copper detailing, it delivers a sense of exclusivity but also warmth. Whether you are visiting Rupert for a romantic date in the candlelit Cocktail Lounge, having after work cocktails with friends under the lush greenery of the Conservatory, or hitting the dance floor at an engagement party in the expansive Dining Hall, Rupert On Rupert has a space for every occasion. Whatever the circumstance, you’ll be heading back out into Melbourne full of belly and happy of heart.
Everything pizza-based and bread-oriented at Rupert On Rupert is made according to the ancient art of sourdough propagation. The kitchen uses certified organic Laucke flour to feed its stash of natural sourdough mothers, in turn feeding the restaurant’s beloved woodfired oven to produce some of Melbourne’s finest Neapolitan pies. You have your classic Italian margherita and Sicilian pizzas, but it gets mighty interesting when you take a crack at the Balkan (with slow-braised lamb shoulder and Hungarian feta), the Polack (paprika-spiced Debriciner sausage with confit garlic and an apple, pear and walnut preserve), the Madonna, the Tomislav... you get the picture – this is one inventive Collingwood pizza restaurant. The same innovation extends to Rupert On Rupert’s ace in the hole, their share plates. From charcuterie boards to vegetarian tasting plates, parsnip chips to golden balls (enquire within), fresh mussels, jerk chicken, Baharat tofu salads and more, dining here with friends is a smorgasbord. When it comes to drinks the variety is just as giddying. The regular beer selection is boutique enough, but Melbourne’s hop heads will be champing at the bit to get a draught from Rupert On Rupert’s twelve rotating microbrew taps. With wine a plenty, classic and house signature cocktails to boot, this Collingwood spot is decidedly hot.
Quality and friendly service and great food from a new menu. The wine recommendations did not disappoint. Our party of six left very satisfied. Well done Rupert.
Great atmosphere, amazing food, and the staff are brilliant. We had a great night, and loved that's it's hidden away in a back streets of Collingwood!
The service, food and atmosphere is laid back yet formal and exceptional. A place you can hang out and enjoy! Great for groups and couples alike!
Great Atmosphere, friendly staff and excellent food. Had a great range of Gluten Free options, as well and GF pizza bases Will definitely return for more.
What a stunning venue, every staff member we spoke to was super friendly with a great sense of humour. The cauliflower baharat was out of this world! But the mushroom pizza could have done with a little more mushies.
Love it! Go back heaps with friends. Good food, good drinks, good music, great staff. Such a nice friendly place to hang out with mates 👍🏻
Great food and impressive service - I am already looking for the next occasion to be able to go back there and would definitely recommend it.
This place is just life goals - I've honestly never been so impressed with a bar/restaurant before! Best way to have spent my 18th birthday!
Cool local venue with a good atmosphere. There was a good selection of drinks and the food was tasty too. We will be going back.
Great food, interesting drinks, knowledgeable and friendly staff, and a warm and welcoming space. My new favourite local for an after work pick me up!
excellent food and drinks list. extensive range of meat and vegetarian options. very attentive wait staff and beautiful interior. fantastic friday night after work atmosphere!
Tasty pizzas. Brussel sprouts never tasted so good. Service was brilliant from the bearded one. It's all about the vibe. Good tunes. Will be back
The cocktails were expensive but not really special. My wife had to spell out what she wanted... exactly in the cocktail. At $20 each we expect more. The music wasn't great. Old and dated would be how I described it. Food was great and service was good. Venue is awesome.
Great atmosphere and BEST staff. A hidden gem. Excellent selection of beers &r wines. Food was great and at a reasonable price. Overall a great night out with good friends.
Friendly attentive service, dangerously good cocktails, delicious chardonnay and yummy food! Also loved all the greenery and plant life. We will definitely be back :)
Great design and very hipster place, Food is ok, cocktails are ok, expensive in small glasses. Service was very good up until we decided to get a bill and had to asked for it twice as all the waitresses decided to sit down and chill with their friends.
Great service, all food came out super quickly. Was just sad we had to leave after 2 hours! And the dessert menu left a lot to be desired
Great food and lovely staff, just a tiny bit slow getting drinks to the table and confusion with drink orders as they were taken by different staff.
we were well looked after, staff were happy to move us to a quieter spot. vege platter was great and gd tap beer choices. would go again
Great ambience and very friendly service. Not to mention fine the food as well. We took our elderly parents and they thought it was trumps too.
Staff and service were excellent. Food great and the place has a very cool vibe. We would definitely recommend Rupert's particularly for groups. Really enjoyed it.
Fabulous staff: friendly, helpful and efficient. Food simply divine. Everything very well done, full of flavour, texture and delicious. Love the atmosphere; eclectic, vibrant, colourful.
A lovely fun atmosphere with great food, a great stop for a reasonably priced dinner or place to have a few drinks close to town
Great service and excellent pizzas. Good range of Beers and drinks. Prompt service so we could get to our meeting on time. Thank you all.
Great atmosphere. Food is good to share with a group of people! Has some vegan options which is great for me. Friendly staff as well.
Great food. We got there at 5.30pm, so it wasn't too busy which was great. Service can be a little slow, but staff are friendly.
Such a great venue, it's a Friday and/or Saturday night favourite for sure. The drinks are always excellent and the pizza and salads are yum.
Great food and service, and superb variety at the bar. The warehouse ambiance makes the place...looking forward to going back and wouldn't hesitate to recommend.
Excellent friendly staff, great atmosphere, the food is excellent especially the selection of pizzas. Being located in Collingwood makes for easy access from public transport.
Great food, great friendly knowledgable service with no attitude. Wait staff Bit of a noisy environment which can be a good or a bad thing!
Couldn't find a park for a long time So we were late for our booking Very frustrating Food tasty Upbeat staff I'd go back again But I'd go by Uber
What a great space with loads of atmosphere, food looked great but lacked flavour needed sessioning. Have to say the staff were very friendly with lots of knowledge
Great atmosphere, welcoming staff. Pizzas interesting but worth sharing to get variety. Good venue to have a group, and great location for after work catch ups.
Great atmosphere. Mostly attentive service. Would have appreciated more attention to clearing plates. Loved sharing - 3 veg and 2 meat perfect for 3 girls.
Great food, and served in good time. Drinks were quite slow, would have enjoyed some extra glasses of wine during the meal but wasn't offered
Atmosphere was really inviting and casual. Food was simple yet on point and reasonably priced! Gorgeous interior & space as a whole - Loved it!!!
All was fine except for that all night there were 20+ smokers who were standing by the open entry filling the restaurant with cigarette smoke.
Service was very slow and although i enjoyed my food Some friends sent their pizzas back as they did not like. Staff were very helpful
Amazing space, fantastic food and great people! Highly recommend! WOW 👍
Great service great food fantastic atmosphere. And the best waiters/ waitress in Melbourne
Disinterested and appalling service. We were sat at the bar counter next to the fire place with nothing. No menus or table water and multiple people standing around us, blocking us in. It was impossible to get anyone's attention. We walked out after 20 minutes of no service.
