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.

The food was delicious but more important, they have half serves & full serves (priced differently) which means food doesn't go to waste. Specials board changes each week.

A warm ambiance with a delightful setting, this is a local gem. Good is delicious, with great flavour combinations and it is well priced. The owner/chef is lovely, and the front of house staff are friendly and accommodating. The gnocchi is seriously good. The wine...list isn’t extensive, but designed to match the food. The dessert I tried a homemade chocolate mousse - was exceptional. Highly recommended.More

Stopped in for a quick light lunch and was pleased I did so. The warm greeting from the staff and the efficient service was much appreciated. I enjoyed my melt-in-the-mouth croissant and the servings of the takeaway slices I ordered were very generous.

If you're looking for a decent meal in Yarra Glen look no further than this restaurant. We had 3 course meal here on Wednesday night, the Calamari Entree was perfectly cooked and delivered hot to the table, keeping the theme, we had Chicken Parmagiana (its...a simple dish, but so many under deliver - this establishment definately does not) chicken was moist, the house made napoili sauce tasty and the side salad fresh and light. For the third course we had sticky date pudding with butterscotch sauce, again a dessert that so many get wrong or deliver an average result, not here, It was the right temperature, right level of sweetness, had real dates and whipped cream and accompanied with what I suspect was house made icecream. Priced a bit more than your average pub meal, though not overly, but the quality and house made accompaniments make it worth every cent. We will definately be back to see what the Breakfast Menu offersMore

Our kids gave us 2 nights in the Yarra valley as a Christmas present, so early on a Tuesday morning we headed up, hoping to beat traffic. As we swung around the roundabout at the entrance to Town I spotted the open for breakfast sign...out of my left eye, and quickly pulled in. It was a nice morning so we sat out in the courtyard I had the big breakfast and a nice flat white, whilst my wife just had toast(and a bit of mine). Very pleasant, so off we went. Next evening we had arranged to catch up with golfing friends who lived locally, and they picked this place. We weren't disappointed the second time either. I had the Pork Belly, My wife had the porterhouse steak, our friends also had the steak, with the seafood sauce. All washed down with a local Sauvignon Blanc. Service was good and efficient, as we were the last to leave we also got to meet Wayne the owner chef, as he bade us farewell. All in all a good night with pleasant surroundings and a nice meal.More

We were immediately welcomed by friendly staff. Entering through the cottage garden courtyard gave us an indication of how great the inside was going to be. Posters, furniture, knick knacks all made the atmosphere interesting to peruse There are several areas/rooms to seat your group....The food was very tasty and there was a choice of dish sizes which are important to us as we often find the mains far too big. Great selection of local wines to choose from and the markup was reasonable . A great nightMore

Great Lunch We had a great lunch at this lovely Yarra Valley Restaurant. We had lunch with friends before Christmas and had a lovely relaxed experience. The food was delicious and generously sized. The owner and chef was friendly and attentive. This gem deserves to...be much busier than it was yesterday for lunch. While it doesn’t have the views of the wineries nearby the quality of the food made up for it.More
