Description: Come and visit us at our home in Healesville (we call it IBHQ) for delicious wine, local produce, artisan pizza and tasty paella, or enjoy a non-wine option such as our real cider, local beers and spirits and great coffee. It’s an urban cellar door, restaurant, bar and your home away from home, so swing by relax and enjoy. We think our wines are best enjoyed with good company and great food, so we crafted our menu with sharing in mind. Created using fresh local Yarra Valley ingredients and inspired by classic dishes we love, our food matches our wines – delicious!

What a great find in the middle of Healesville. Easy menu with a few tasty alternatives for those who want something a bit different without being pretentious. Priced well, friendly service , good parking . We had lunch here on our way through to Warburton . We would have happily gone back but unfortunately were travelling on; maybe next time

This is a great restaurant for a very casual lunch. We went on a Sunday and despite being flat out the service was excellent. Food is consistently of high quality and we enjoy the local wines. My husband enjoyed the low-alcohol beer (surprise!). Wine tasting makes the venue a bit more special and adds another dimension to the dining experience. Prices were average. We will definitely be back.

We have had an amazing service at IB so much that when we visited Healesville for 4 nights, we spent 3 evenings dining at IB.

The staff are a real credit 👏 🙌 to IB , they all love working at IB and this really is reflected by their fabulous service.

We felt like part of the IB family, we always received a warm welcome and nothing was too much trouble

Big shout out especially to Jayden, Jenna , Harry , it was really nice to get to know you over the past 3 evenings you all made each visit fun.

Keep up the outstanding work.

Next time we are in Healesville we'll definitely be visiting you 😉
