Perfect spot for winter lunch!

Our friends wanted to make sure they took us to Bella Vedere before they leave Melbourne in a few months. It lived up to the high expectations! The share winter menu is very good. We tried the omelette, rabbit terrine, leek tartlets, duck, chicken, sirloin Mac & cheese and venison. Meals were not... read more

What a great spot! We had a fantastic lunch with really delicious food! Portion sizes are like a large entree and the idea is to order several and share - so good! The eel lasagne was brilliant! Deserts were super too! You can buy freshly baked bread there as well. I would recommend booking though!

My partner and I attended the cooking school and enjoyed lunch last week (the day was a gift from him for my birthday last year). We were disappointed by the school - we waited over 20 minutes after the start time before beginning, and although we had a great hour with the baker in the team learning about sourdough and...

We must congratulate the restaurant on its menus, which have a sensible print size which can be easily read! Great food and good service. The menu consts of a number of shared dishes so you can enjoy a number of tastes. We had local smoked trout pate and sardine pate served with rye toasts, followed by leek and smoked bacon... More

I was a little hesitant after reading some of the reviews but I needn't have worried. We were a table of 7 and from our arrival I could not fault the service, so friendly and accommodating throughout the entire 3 hours we were there. The food was excellent, we are a mix of vegetarian and meat eaters and all were... More

My husband and I travelled from Mount Macedon to Bella Vedere on the Saturday of Easter weekend for lunch and I'm disappointed to report it was one of the worst dining experiences we've had in a very long time. We've had many wonderful lunches at this restaurant before but it will take a lot for us to return. The entree... More

An experience to savour, spoil yourselves. Service superb and friendly, as well as enlightening. We loved it

We arrived here for breakfast with great anticipation. The outlook was beautiful but we were placed at a table which failed to maximise the view. The boss served us but was totally disinterested and messed up the orders. The food was nice but the chef in the kitchen apologised as the order was poorly communicated to him causing ingredients that... More

Had a big 60th the night before and was browsing the net for a place for lunch. Came across Bella Vedere, checked the menu and decided to give it a go. Are we glad we did. When we arrived, no reservation made, escorted to our table for four, with a glimpse of the surrounding vineyard through the window. Then our... More

We dined for the fifth or sixth time at Bella Vedere last weekend, testimony to the fact this restaurant never disappoints. We had a glass of champagne on the terrace overlooking the kitchen garden watching one of the best sunsets imaginable. A great start to an evening of fine foods and wines and great service. One of the favourites on... More
