A bit of country hospitality

Old-world charm, culinary innovation, and hyper-local produce...The Healesville Hotel in the heart of the Yarra Valley is always in tune with the seasons, making it a year-round fave for locals and tourists on the winery trail. Beyond the Edwardian building itself, the restaurant is a stunner when it comes to rustic and honest cooking.

While there’s traditional pub fare on offer in addition to some fancier dishes like roasted wandin quail and slow roasted berkshire pork. The menu rotates weekly, though you can count on just-plucked-from-the-garden herbs and produce making an appearance. Treat yourself to a hospitable and heavenly lunch or dinner at Healesville Hotel, it will be a dining experience to remember.

We had a fantastic time at the restaurant. The food was excellent , the small tasting platter was just enough as an entre ,my favourite was the pate. Main course we had beef cheeks ,they were cooked perfectly melting in the mouth and as for desert , the creme brûlée was a great way to finish the meal. We would highly recommend a visit to this restaurant, will definitely go again.

The wine list was underwhelming, fortunately we cottoned on to getting wine from their wine store next door. The server bringing the wine was reasonably knowledgeable and was able to provide a general guidance towards which wine to choose (or not to as was the case). The food was a bit mixed. Liver Parfait & Duck Croquettes were very enjoyable. The beef cheek delicious but the chilli pasta "oil" was terrible. Not chilli hot, nor was it oil, but just mashed up chilli drenching the lovely pasta. Such a waste. Our pannacotta and brulee were also enjoyable.
Such a contrast to our previous visit, there'll be no further visit.

Lovely food and friendly service - very quick service everything went very smoothly and the team on the floor worked seamlessly together, must be well trained. Dining room just a bit dark for reading the menu , had to use our iphone torch to read wine list ..print too small for we oldies- Overall a terrific dining experience - well done staff. Laura

Can’t fault the service - all the staff were attentive and our meals came out quickly.
Beef cheek - a little skimpy on the mash and sauce but very lovely.
Burger - yum.
Kids pasta - would be good to have an alternative option with a tomato based sauce.

Wonderful, friendly staff and a beautiful country pub atmosphere. The food was very tasty but far too small whereby we had to order chips and veg to top up the meal. $102 for two mains, 2 coffees and 2 beers. A little steep. We ended up at the bakery for something to eat afterwards.

I was very disappointed with the food as I got the whiting with chips and a cos lettuce for $28 but while the fish was breadcrumbed and not battered so nothing special the portion was extremely inappropriate for the price. It was more within a fish bite size than what you would expect for $28. Also my partner had the mushroom burger of which was undercooked and definitely not worth the price for that either. Our service was great though and we felt awkward having to tell our waitress that we were so disappointed.

The food was delicious, however thought the menu selection was rather limited, one of my group was looking forward to having a nice steak !
We were overcharged $13 for our bottle of wine, am sure this was a genuine error made by your staff, nevertheless these errors shouldn’t really occur.
Overall a great night with a beautifully decorated space.

My husband and I had the Beef Brisket and the Braised Lamb Shoulder for mains. The food was divine and just the right portion. The desserts were as equally scrummy! Service was great. Would come again.

Healesville Hotel is a very well remembered spot for special occasions. The dining room staff are prompt and attentive, without being intrusive. Food is of a very high standard. I enjoyed succulent slow cooked lamb shoulder and my dining partner was very pleased with the Barramundi. She commentd very favourably on her Creme Brulee as well. The small range of wines by the glass suited our meals well and there is a larger wine list as well - comprehensive without being intimidating!

Really beautiful old hotel and great food. The only downside was having to wait a very long time for our first drink while staff talked to each other instead - it wasn't busy. But, the staff that night were young so can't fault them too much, friendly and helpful otherwise.

A beautiful almost fine dining setting! Service was lovely... wine & beers good.
Food was tasty but menu was very small with the regular ‘pub grub’ items particularly as main course, which we found quite surprising - given the setting. A lovely hotel with great staff!

Nice lunch, delicious braised lamb and crab and coconut salad. Good service. The only negative was a very noisy group of women diners who screeched and ruined the ambience for us and the other tables. We couldn’t get out fast enough but will definitely go back!

We have eaten here before so it was lovely to get back. Shame it was so quiet as it did not make for an interesting ambience. The set lunch menu was okay but would prefer the option of an a la carte menu but understand why restaurants do this. The salmon was lovely but the radish salad was not that enjoyable. My husband had the lamb & it was delicious. The desserts were also delicious. Staff helpful & friendly.

Food was really good however the cheese platter was very disappointing. 2 very small (and tasteless) pieces of cheese with bread, jelly and 6 dried grapes for $24. Not value for money
