Modern Australian
Once the home of Dame Nellie Melba, Coombe - The Melba Estate is a property with an unrivalled provenance. Seven acres of stunning gardens and beautifully appointed facilities in the restored motor house and clock tower offer a truly unique gourmet and cultural experience.

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 estate grown produce is on offer for morning tea, 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.

    We had the lamb shoulder - is was delicious but a very big meal. Probably would have liked to know ahead of time that we could take the left overs home. The greens accompanying the dish were also delicious but sparing. Side of potatoes was too big. Again, would like to have had a less of them and had another side dish. The dessert looked and tasted incredible.

    Quite an innovative menu with options for most palates. The wine list was very good and we recommend the Estate Pinot. The desert menu is uncomplicated and may be a little thin but with Peach Melba tart what else would you choose? The table had a great view out to the gardens and the noise was minimal with very enjoyable music in the background, I repeat in the background. The staff were very good and friendly, more importantly they didn't disappear into thin air. I can well recommend a visit and it is good value having the set price 2 courses or 3. It was our second visit and it won't be our last.

    Our lunch experience was outstanding - the waitresses were lovely, professional and the food was a spectacular treat - a special and rare afternoon following a second visit to your cellar door in one week! We havbe had a difficult past year in our family and our entire experience at Coombe Farm (restaurant and Cellar Door) has been just absolutely commendable. It truly was the well earned treated we have looked forward to all year! Both times this week visiting your cellar door for tastings, we were served by the charming Maggie/Margarite who is new to your venue and was just delightful! Such a warm and sparky personality, and she demonstrated personal experience and knowledge of the wines on offer for our tastings, as well as fond familiarity with her colleagues who were also lovely and happy to lend their thoughts on the wines. We have bought a nice little variety and will no doubt invest in several more of our favourites at our next visit! Thank you to all the staff for a wonderful afternoon - from groundskeepers, to waiters, chefs, sous chefs, Hosts, sommeliers, dishwashing staff, cleaners, winemakers, vineyard manager, and cellar door staff. Thank you! Nina & Nick Stefanac

    We had the Garden Tour and 3 Course Lunch package. First of all Rosemary the tour guide took us through the gardens and outside the cottage and she was so amazing. You can see and hear her passion as she shares the stories of Dame Melba and the property. Then we had a superb lunch starting with our entree, Terrine of Potato a magnificent dish. I had Beef Rib for main and my wife the Barramundi which we both loved. Our 10/10 lunch was completed with delicious desserts of Cheesecake and Peach Melba Tart accordingly. All the staff from start to finish were courteous and friendly which made the whole day perfect.

    A lovely morning tea with a charming atmosphere, Coombe Yarra Valley was a surprisingly affordable out amongst beautiful surroundings. The venue lets in plenty of light and great views. It was not busy when we were there, and we had the Devonshire tea with scones and the famous Melba jam. All excellent!

    While many dishes looked interesting and attractive, we found some were rather disappointing. The wines likewise, while quite drinkable, were not memorable, and not worth the prices.
