The Bank on Collins, Melbourne CBD

**Update August 2019 – I have heard that new owners have taken over and there are now limited gluten free options so this review is now out of date**

Located in a beautiful historic building in Melbourne CBD, The Bank on Collins gluten free menu is extensive.   The restaurant is in an old banking chamber which has soaring ceilings and creates a lovely atmosphere. On the other side of the old chamber is a bar with seating, so you can have a drink before your meal and then just cross the corridor!

Although they have a disclaimer that they use a shared kitchen, they do use separate fryers for gluten free food. In my experience, a lot of care is taken (tell them you are a coeliac) to make sure your meal is gluten free and it is a popular venue with Melbourne coeliacs.  They even have gluten free beer 🙂

Everyone has really enjoyed their meals on several visits to The Bank. It is a pub style fare but the meals are presented well,  have a good mixture of flavours and are a decent size. The pictures here show the gluten free items I have chosen from the main gluten free menu.  I haven’t stayed for dessert, but three of the five dessert options are marked as gluten free. There is also a special lunch menu that has the gluten free items marked up.

The first time I visited was on a Friday night and the noise from the bar was incredible, so if you are looking for a quiet meal, I suggest going on a weeknight when it is not so busy.

The Bank is an easy walk to the Regent Theatre and Melbourne Town Hall, so it is a good option before or after a show. If you go early, you can get served quickly and leave in good time for your show.

Whilst in Melbourne CBD, you may like to check out Father’s Office, as they have the same owners and some of the menu items overlap.
