The food was very good and the house and gardens likewise. The waitress was rude to us when we didn't want to order alcohol and also when we asked for bread. The male waiter/ manager was also rude to us and there was a delay...between when each person received their meals. I would not go back.More

The food at a recent function I attended was exceptional. Service was great and as part of the function invitation we were able to advise of any food allergies or special dietary requests. The staff went well beyond when they had an unfortunate power outage...but being well prepared very few of the guests at the function were even aware of the problem. Zucchini flowers I highly recommend, the duck was succulent and there deserts tasty just to name a few. Loved the location, food and service. Well done. I will be back to sample the rest of the menu.More

Coonara Springs is a destination restaurant. The old world charm of the garden and wonderfully renovated cottage combine with the views to provide an unforgettable and unparalleled ambiance that transports diners into another realm. Cuisine is first class, as is the service. We have eaten...here many times with groups of varying sizes up to our wedding party of 34. The quality and presentation of meals is always a joy to behold. Staff go above and beyond and the wine list is one of the best anywhere. I reccomend Coonara Springs to folks looking for an unforgettable dining experience.More

Popped in, for a sneaky Friday lunch. Welcoming, friendly service. Really good food - did the midweek 2 course special - and a warm, relaxed atmosphere, with the restaurant set in beautiful grounds. I understand it gets busy at night, so book ahead.

A lovely spot for lunch in the Dandenongs, away from the busy village, a restored old home set amongst beautiful gardens. The food was ‘fine dining’, beautifully presented and delicious, the desserts are a must, especially the peanut butter and jelly sandwich, so generous and...creative. The huge quince tart equally delicious. A stroll in the gardens completed a wonderful lunch.More

This restaurant would have to be the best dining venue in the Dandenongs. The Dandenongs are a beautiful place to live with many excellent cafes in the villages around. Restaurant dining though, has always been a tad ordinary. Finally we decided to try Coonara Springs...and what a triumph ! Beautiful, fresh food prepared with skill and care in a contemporary setting. The wine list went beyond the usual & boring Yarra Valley offerings, Staff were knowledgeable, helpful and most importantly welcoming. Thank you Coonara Springs.More

Three generations booked lunch to celebrate birthdays. Excellent service, delicious food, including vegetarian options, a garden setting, comfortable seating and amenities. Everyone enjoyed the whole experience and we are planning to return with interstate and overseas visitors.

We had been married at Coonara Springs ten years earlier and went back to celebrate. On a cold winter's evening we arrived to find the restaurant had been renovated but still retained it's charm. Our table overlooked the lit garden and we started with the...pork,walnut and pear salad. Very tasty. Our mains were barrimundi and the cassolet. Both were delicious. We finished with tarte tartin and moose. It was a delightful meal. Wine was the Sangovasie. Overall a very good experience but you do pay for it.More

The space is very beautiful and the service is absolutely outstanding. Staff are very friendly and knowledgable. We went there for dinner so couldn't really see outside. However, we have driven past a few times during day time and the views look spectacular, cannot wait...to go back during day time! Food fell slightly short of expectations. Food was good but not above average.More
