Our wine list includes Macs wines of current and back vintages, plus an extensive Friends List chosen by Mac, featuring wines from here and abroad.

Was a great little find in Healesville. Such a great way to break our iso-dining drought.

Our Should We/Shouldn't We? Review. So... I was a bit nervous as Covid numbers in Victoria started to spike - did I want to keep my booking for my son's birthday? After a frank discussion with Matt about our seating, the restaurants cleaning/distancing procedures and his kind patience and understanding, we kept our booking. We were given a private table in a separate upstairs area which is beautifully set out with a cozy wooden table (large enough for at least 10), maps of wine regions and a wall of wine racking. Our set menu had fresh Tassie Oysters with finger lime, an amazing mussel and Jerusalem artichoke salad, the most melt-in-your mouth pork loin with brussel sprouts and then a perfectly poached pear. Sounds simple, but the fresh bread and miso butter was so delicious, we could have just had that. All the staff there are knowledgeable and friendly and the food is pretty special.

Warm welcome made us feel right at home on a chilly Saturday afternoon. Atmosphere and service was great, food portions perfectly adequate for a lunchtime meal (be sure and try the meatballs - delicious), and the wine was enjoyable (try the house sparkling). Worth making the effort to come out for a casual lunch with friends or as a couple. Will be booking in for dinner in sometime to try out the dinner menu.

Delicious well prepared meals. The menu is limited in size but should please everyone. I had garfish expertly pan fried that reminded me of Italy. My wife had a delicious pork chop with cherries and pickled onions. We shared a fabulous heirloom tomato and ricotta salad. Will definitely be back

The limited (very) menu suggests that the restaurant intends to do those dishes very well, which is a legitimate strategy. However, you have to make sure the food presented is exceptional and, sadly, it wasn't. The beef option was basically tough and the vegetarian option (these were the only two mains on offer) simply wasn't appealing. Overall disappointing.

Incredible! The food, the wine, the service! All of the ingredients were from local farmers, seasonal and mostly organic too. Such a hidden little gem, but one that I doubt will be hidden for long.

Great little place, loved the simplicity of the food and how damn tasty it was. Jimmy was amazing :)
Just think of diners and the temp of the restaurant as it was really cold with the door wide open....

Small but interesting menu and extra good service. Good wine list and advice. Nice intimate atmosphere marred somewhat by the overly loud music, our table being underneath a speaker.

Great food! Between 4 we ordered everything on the menu (some even twice they were so good) . Wine list gets better and better the more you delve into it. Staff were lovely and helpful. We stayed for 4 hours and lost track of time we were enjoying ourselves so much. A gem of a find in beautiful Healesville! Will be back.
