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 arrived and were greeted at the counter with a friendly smile and welcome. After being shown to our table we had the 3 course option. The complimentary bubbly was refreshing and a great way to get the taste buds going. The staff were very friendly, well dressed and helpful. You were not kept waiting. The potato and leek soup was creamy, hot and delicious after being poured directly into our bowl. I opted for the beef which was melt in your mouth and my wife for the pork belly which was also very tender. The potato medallions presented in a block were smooth and tasty and the side of greens plentiful and crunchy with a variety of flavours. We finished the meal with the 3 cheese platter accompanied by a vine of grapes. We opted for the Coombe Pinot Gris which was crisp and a perfect accompaniment for our meal choices. Well done Coome. We will definitely come again.

    Ridiculous waiting time for meals. Took 40 minutes just for the desert… One main and one desert course took totally 3 hours to finish because of the waiting time…

    Coombe Yarra ValleyResponded 2 days ago

    We are sorry that your dining experience was not up to standard. We have looked at our records and can see that you received three courses in two hours and twenty minutes, which is longer than our usual two hour sitting, and we do apologise for that delay. We try our utmost to deliver meals in a timely manner with everything prepared to order, though delays can arise due to unforeseen circumstances. We hope you will consider Coombe again for a more efficient dining experience.

    While the food was excellent and cooked beautifully there was very little of it and having to pay extra for vegetables (apart for the little provided with the meal) at the prices paid is a bit insulting. It is highly unlikely that we would be returning.

    Thank you for your review of Coombe Yarra Valley. Our kitchen team work hard to create delicious meals using highest quality ingredients and local produce and our pricing is a reflection of that. We are glad you enjoyed your meal, though we are sorry the serving size did not meet the standard you expected.

    Have dined at Coombe on a number of occasions. Food presentation and taste are usually very good. However, table service a little muddled this time, staff were not sure of table allocations as we had ordered then another staff member came to hand us menus and another tried to give us dessert’s. Wrong glasses were provided for red . Perhaps those training staff need to clarify what tables they are serving. Attention to detail for service was not there this time. However, will return.

    Thank you for your review Barry. We are glad that you were pleased with your lunch though we are sorry that the service did not meet expectations. We have taken your feedback on board for our training procedures and hope that you will join us for an improved dining experience soon!

    We enjoyed a lovely high tea with my 85 year old mother. Access with her walker was easy and we all appreciated the fresh and tasty offerings on our 3-tied platter, the sparkling wine and the beautifully brewed teas which were served. The noise level with all of the hard surfaces in the room was a little loud upon arrival (mum is hard of hearing) but, as the lunch crowd disappeared, the ambience became more calm and pleasant. The views across the gardens were delightful. The service was excellent - nothing was too much trouble, and mum's dietary requirements were treated with considered respect. We'll definitely be coming back again.

    The poor staff were run off their feet which mean we had to wait a really long time for our food, even for someone to take our drink order. The entree had liver in it, which wasn’t specified on the menu, perhaps something to include on the description as it’s something that a few wouldn’t eat. When a new one (sans liver) was brought out it was great but had a big piece of gristle in it. The main and dessert however was incredible. The wine, spectacular. And the atmosphere beautiful. We would definitely return.

    We booked the house tour and three course lunch. A friend was visiting from South Africa and we thought it would make an enjoyable day trip. Even though the weather was chilly and umbrella's required for the tour, we were glad we had booked the tour and even had a short walk around the garden. The lunch from service to the superb food and wine was without fault. And the dining room is so pleasant with views looking out to the garden. We all had a wonderful day, thank you!
