Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We had a private party at Gallery. Great food and wine. Starting from the reservation (Dylan) up to the time we were leaving, the entire team was friendly and supportive.

We visited this excellent establishment in the Yarra valley to visit the gardens and enjoy lunch.
The gardens were beautiful, and the visit was well documented.
Lunch in the gorgeous converted stables was excellent. I enjoyed Kangaroo pastrami as an entree followed by perfectly cooked beef.
My wife had and scallops entree followed by the Barramundi. We followed this with an obligatory Peche Melba Tart and cheese cake.
The staff were first class, and we were well advised on the selection of local wines to accompany our meal.
My only very small criticism was having to pay for accompanying vegetables, which for a meal with a 100$ set price per person was a bit steep. Things, however, did not end well. Shortly after arriving home, i was violently ill and my entire meal, after several very
unpleasant hours, was deposited in the WC. Having spent 300$ on lunch, i did not expect this. My wife was fine... the next day i phoned the restaurant back to inform them and ask if anyone else had suffered. They told me they would get back but to date no contact at all. Clearly the subject is of no interest at all to the management.

We had lunch at Coombe - let’s start with atmosphere, the ground and restaurant looks amazing very nicely done. Food was also great we had the pork and beef, next time I would skip the pork as it was average but beef was amazing. Service was super efficient and very friendly. We also did tasting and overall I liked their Shiraz.
We had a great time and would be happy to return.

A lovely way to spend a winter day into Coldstream awashed with lush greenery peppered with golden hues of autumn.

A Melba Garden Walk & lunch for a belated milestone birthday - 7 acres of garden with captivating trees in their full glory as well as manicured gardens circumferenced with 600m of Cypress hedges!! A private swimming pool possibly a first for all the pool parties.

A peek into how a renowned Australian Dame called her home here is intriguing - fascinated with her bathtub enrobed by mirrored doors for privacy, together with lots of collectibles from different cultures reflecting her international life.

Part of the package included a 2 or 3 course lunch offering. We decided on the 3.

Starting off with House Smoked King salmon & Pea Soup with seared scallops - the soup was delicious.

Mains: Slow cooked Cape Grim beef rib was a little disappointing - it was certainly very tender but no distinguishing flavours, the roaring forties lamb loin was more flavoursome.

Desserts: Chocolate fondant was a bit too sweet for me, the Peach Melba Tart appealed more.

We enjoyed the complimentary white wine & sparkling mineral water. Latte & coffee completed a satisfying experience.

A well worth destination experience for a special occasion.

We were very impressed with our visit to the cellar door. Min the manager was knowledgeable and very down to earth and friendly. She made the visit a level above other wineries we have visited, and we have visited quite a few! The wines were excellent and we walked away with 6 bottles. We also enjoyed the Devonshire tea after the tasting. Definitely worth a visit.

We enjoyed a garden walk and lunch at the Coombes Estate last week. I enjoyed it even more than l thought I would. The garden tour was lovely and informative, great to learn about the life of Dame Nellie Melba, as we wandered through her beautiful estate. The lunch was mouthwatering and the wine excellent. Great acoustics in the converted garage, so although busy, we could all hear each order talk…highly recommend.

Very disappointing experience with high tea at Coombes in the Yarra Valley today . Scones were dry and hard. Sandwich bread was dry like they had been exposed to the air for a good while before being served. Cream served with the scones was whipped , not clotted as advertised in the brochure. Would not go there again. Better to go to Mary eats cake in Montrose where they serve a delicious high tea and an extensive range of teas

Thank you for taking the time to let us know about your experience at Coombe Yarra Valley. All the items for our high tea are prepared on the day, and we use double cream which is the closest you can get to true clotted cream in Australia. We have made sure that this is now reflected on our website and advertising. We are sorry that we didn’t meet your expectations on this occasion.

Our table had a great position and view, our selections were very appealing. Seasonal vegetables, peach Melba dessert with sparkling wines were highlights. Attentive wait staff and refined ambience add to the experience. We recommend.

We loved everything about our lunch at this very special place. The food was delicious and so were the wines - especially the Fullerton Pinot Noir and the Blanc de Blanc sparkling. Next time we would probably add on a salad to the main course. The service was lovely, the young lady who served us went out of her way to organise the last bottle of Fullerton Pinot Noir that day and entertained us with a story of her grandfather in Delhi - that personal touch topped off a beautiful meal. Thank you very much!
