The only way to get access to behind the towering, ancient hedgerow is to book yourself into the Melba Garden Tour. $25 for a slow meander around the well laid out, private garden. The guide was theatrically emotional about the scattering of horticulture anecdotes she embellished poetically. But, the family was in-the-house so she also took on a military vigilance... More

My wife and I went there to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Very pleasant venue. We began with Coombe fizz which went down very easily. My wife had the prosciutto platter and I had the wagyu beef - both washed down with Coombe pinot noir. We finished with Peach Melba and coffee. We can highly recommend this restaurant.

On our way home from Melbourne we decided to take a diversion into the Yarra Valley to visit Coombe. The surrounds are lovely. We did a morning tour of the garden and then had the morning tea. The tour guide was informative and enthusiastic about Nellie Melba and left us knowing more about Melba as a person than just a... More

It's really disappointing that the food or menu doesn't match the surrounds of this beautiful property. Don't be fooled by the beautiful food pictures. This is not what it looks like. Further the menu is very meat focused, lots of Wagyu meat with uninteresting sides. The potatoes were even wrong. This is a pricy place and it needs to lift... More

Ate there for lunch. It was for a charity function of over 100 people. They served alternate mains with one being a steak which was excellent considering how many they served. All the staff were really good and they handled the function with ease. Their standard menu looks really good and we will definately be back for lunch there in... More

On a recent wine tour in the Yarra Valley we were fortunate to visit Coombe Farm. One of the oldest and largest family estates in the Yarra Valley, this was the home of the world-famous opera singer Dame Nellie Melba. The estate is still owned and operated by her descendants. Do have a look at all the memorabilia on display... More

Quite busy the day we went but it didn't impact on the quality of food or service. Staff were attentive and knowledgeable about the menu and wines. The restaurant itself is stunning. Overall an enjoyable lunch. I'd encourage you to book to avoid disappointment.

The story of the house is cute (you'll have to visit to learn) but the wine and the experience were great. We had a wonderful wine guide that educated us on the wines from Coombe as well as the region. We may have talked too long but she was cordial and a complete pleasure. Will be back to purchase wine... More
