A destination restaurant set in seven acres of landscaped gardens with views over the Yarra Valley. Modern Australian food with a hint of nostalgia from the past. The 90 year old weatherboard property has recently been restored, celebrating its glorious history of entertaining since the 1920's. Enjoy the light filled restaurant floor overlooking the gardens, the lounge rooms next to open fires in winter or the private dining room for special events and weddings. Adrian the chef prides himself on both growing and making, follow a produce to plate philosophy, tending his veggies in our extensive growing areas which guests can walk around. Don't forget a visit to the spring if you feel like a longer walk, and book our outdoor dining tables during the summer months. Enjoy locally sourced wines, home made breads, butters and ice-cream! Amanda or one of our team look forward to welcoming you to Coonara Springs.
