Coombe The Melba Estate
Located within the restored motor house and historic clock tower and under the helm of Chef Neil Cunningham, our restaurant serves Contemporary Modern Australian a la carte menu options.
An inspiring selection of seasonal and predominantly estate grown produce will be on offer for breakfast, lunch and afternoon tea 6 days a week.
The restaurant is modern, spacious yet intimate and overlooks the landscaped market-style courtyard of the beautifully restored facilities. The view from the conservatory is of the Coombe cottage garden ‘avenue’ and gives glimpses of the oldest swimming pool in Victoria.
A lovely place for a high tea. Gorgeous surrounds and yummy scones and cakes.
This restaurant was on our list of dining experiences and we chose it to celebrate my husbands birthday. It was a brilliant decision. We were given a perfect corner table. The meal was was delicious matched with great wines. We will definitely return .
Loved it. Food was as good as anywhere we’ve ever been.
The most amazing spot. Absolutely stunning. Amazingly attentive staff. Will definitely become a favorite spot to visit
Lunch with friends after a garden tour. We seasonal delicacies for our two entrees. These we were happy with. We ordered the signature dessert of Peach Melba and were very disappointed. Not the real thing-a mousse!!! Delightful garden setting but we did not like being called'you guys 'constantly. Service was good otherwise but a bit slow.
We had been to Coombe Estate for High Tea, which was exceptional, but this was our first lunch - will not be our last! The food and the wine were divine, and even for the fact that the restaurant was flat chat, the service was fantastic and very friendly! Made my birthday lunch a very enjoyable day!
Quality of food very good and pairing suggestions worked very well
Delicious food in a relaxed environment at a beautiful location
A great ornament to the yarra valley.
Our waitress was very friendly and was very understanding and accommodating when I spilt a glass of wine.
I will return with overseas visitors in January.
Restaurant had a nice outlook into garden.
We appreciated the window view following our request when booking.
wait staff need more training. Waiter repeatedly reached across other diners to deliver meals. Plates were not cleared away promptly. It was not made clear where the bill was to be paid.There were big gaps between courses.
The beautiful garden setting and relaxed quiet atmosphere made Coombe a pleasure to enjoy high quality food and wine in relaxed surroundings. The perfect place for a special occasion meal.
Lovely, lovely setting. Waiters/waitresses were friendly, very helpful and we didn't have to wait long if we wanted to order additional drinks etc. In the words of my sister, it was so nice and fancy but without the toff. Just a genuinely lovely and special spot. The timing of food and drink was spot on and proportions were excellent.
It was our first time there. We totally enjoyed every minute of our time there , staff , food , surroundings. Would definitely recommend it
On arrival we felt very welcome, food was amazing, wine was very nice, View was beautiful and the room was bright and lovely .The waitress was just lovely and attentive to us. Can not wait to return for another amazing experience
What a great experience, the food, service wine ambiance and great value for money. I will definitely be going back and next time do the tour of the gardens and house. From what I saw I was very impressed.
The food was really lovely. We both enjoyed our entrees of Asparagus and Duck Breast and the Mains of Pork and Baramundi. It's a nice relaxed food in a winery seating. More of a casual dining experience, which is great for families. The views from the dining room are gorgeous.
However,don't come here for the service. We had a few issues. Wrong food being sent, tables being cleared when still eating, not being informed of a discount in the wine shop after eating at the restaraunt.
Gift voucher was used
Service from entering the venue was very attentive
Staff and waitresses very efficient , friendly and knowledgeable
Food very acceptable and enjoyed all we had
I was there last Friday for lunch with some visitors from Canberra.It was an amazing experience . Customer service was at the best. Food was delicious and a reasonable choice. Ambiance was breathtaking. Lovely sceneries. Would highly recommend.
The quality of my meal (fillet of beef) was superb.
as a friend of coombe I invited 4 guests for lunch. it was very well received by all.
Poor view. Just a normal resultant without any view to vineyard. The food is so-so. Doesn’t worth the money you spend.
Family’s favourite spot for a special occasion, never fails. Food is divine, staff are always friendly and accommodating and the grounds are beautiful to walk through.
Location, architecture, restaurant fit-out and setting superb; surrounds beautiful. Food quality and presentation first-class although daily fixed menu was fish for both courses and built around same sauce. The staff seemed to be straight out of training school - inattentive, fawning, unusually quick to remove everything not currently being used, including bread and butter plates
The service was great with friendly staff.Good menu and well presented meals.
We had the loveliest meal. Two or three courses of local produce prepared thoughtfully.
Combe Yarra Valley is a great choice for family groups and celebrating special occasions. The food is consistently good any time of year and the setting delightful.
I’m a regular here and come usually once a month. The Pork Scotch which is the most tender piece
Of Pork you could ever taste with amazing potatoes and salad on the side. For the first time we encountered average service however I’ve based my rating on the many times I’ve been there and always the service was impeccable. Thank you to Nami who took over from the first couple of waitresses we had a rectified what was turning out to be a disastrous service.
We were attending 'high tea' on the occasion of 'joint' birthday celebrations.it was lovely to attend a venue so local to home.thoroughly enjoyed by all.
Great Venue, great food. History of the place makes it extra special
The ambience, staff attention and food - all Great !
Celebrated a friends birthday - fitting venue, lovely Sunday lunch/afternoon - loved the pork dish with the black pudding
Lunch at historic Coombe is memorable for so many reasons. Wonderful food, excellent service, relaxing ambience and a lovely peaceful spot on the edge of the beautiful Yarra Valley. A lunch with friends and/or family ay Coombe is an event to savour.
Convenient excellent service $49 lunch (barramundi)not as good as last time(pork fillet which was10).
We had a wonderful experience with a high tea for a birthday celebration. The staff were welcoming and attentive, all the food delicious and the atmosphere had a good vibe.
The staff were attentive and friendly. They were very professional in serving food and wine. The Lamb shoulder serving for two was far to big for this day and age, almost all the tables where the shoulder was served plastic containers were supplied for patrons to take the leftover meat home with them. The Entree and sweets, as well as the lamb shoulder were delicious and beautifully presented.
Excellent service in a modern environment with beautiful surroundings.
The very best Devonshire Tea in Melbourne. There are scones and then there are Coombe scones! Delicious. This a beautiful restaurant with very attentive service. Highly recommended
Love the food and atmosphere
Whilst we enjoyed our high tea tower. We had almost finished eating when I assumed we were not going to receive any hot drinks so had to ask. We then had our order taken after a few minutes but then waited a good 10 minutes for the tea orders and 15 or more for the coffee. We alsohaf no idea what was on the tower. Usually it would be described on delivery. Wait staff not really very friendly either. We have certainly had many better high tea experiences and ones with better value.
