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.

    Food was delicious, service was very good. The only issue we had was that the water drinking glasses had lipstick on them. We politely asked for them to be replaced and the service team were happy to do so. Great ambience and the tour of the house with Rosemary was very thorough. Rosemary was an excellent tour guide and very friendly.

    With 4 people the cost was over $450 I think the price was over the top. Especially having to purchase the sides and the relatively small surving.

    It was an OMG moment. I've heard so much about this place and decided to bring my overseas guests for lunch. We'd the 3 course lunch, ordering 3 different entree, mains and deserts. Without blinking an eye, our lovely waitress asked if we'd like share plates which is exactly what we wanted. All the food are absolutely divine but the slow cooked beef, that just simply melted in my mouth. When I think beef in the future, this is a dish that I'd always remember, recommend and return to. We had a great time there and thank you for the sumptuous food and great service.

    I sent an email on Sunday but have not had a response. I paid for house tour and 3 course lunch but only got 2 courses. Value for a couple of $110.00 for house tour was not good value.

    Coombe Yarra ValleyResponded 7 days agoThank you for your feedback Jenny. Our office hours are Wednesday to Saturday so unfortunately our emails are not manned on a Sunday, but our team is addressing the issue with your payment as a priority today. We apologise for any inconvenience, we hope you will consider a visit to Coombe in the future for a more seamless experience.

    Really enjoyed attending Coombe Estate. Also toured the home, well worth it. Meal was lovely, had the lamb which was cooked to perfection. Peach Melba for desert, nicely presented. Very funky venue and wasn’t too loud. Took my mother (64yo) who enjoyed it immensely.

    I booked for what i had thought was a high tea - after 1.5 hour road trip to you with my friend we found out upon arrival it was a devonshire tea. The scones were minimal in size although the coffee was great. The venue is beautiful & staff were lovely just the dining experience was poor. i would have rather booked a lunch if i had know there was no high tea

    Coombe Yarra ValleyResponded on 28 July 2022Thank you for taking the time to let us know about your experience at Coombe Yarra Valley. We offer high tea exclusively on Thursday and Sunday afternoons from 3:00pm, while Devonshire tea is available daily at 10:00am.

    We both had the 3 courses for $80 The food was so delicious and beautifully presented. I had the Ham hock terrine, pork belly main and the peach Melba for dessert. As I am “ gluten free” I am always a little concerned when dining out, but could not have asked for better choice. I will be recommending Coombe to all and sundry. A magnificent venue and dinning experience. We also visited the cellar door after lunch and, once again, the lady serving us, Shannon, was excellent. She certainly knew her wines and delivered an exceptional tasting experience.

    Coombe was great value for money! The food we had which was a 2 x course meal (main & dessert) and a locally made Pinot from Coombe. The slow cooked beef was the best we have ever eaten! The greens should have been steamed and not boiled! The Peach Melba dessert inventive and delicious. The staff were efficient and had happy smiles. We were totally relaxed in a glorious large dining area which was filled with happy and relaxed people. We will come again - Susan & Colin Harris.
