We dined here whilst staying at the Yarra Valley Lodge, its great to have such an amazing restaurant within the Lodge. We both had the duck entree (yum!) and then shared the suckling pig main for 2 people (which came with the choice of 2 side dishes). The pig was amazing - crispy skinned on the outside but beautifully tender... More

We shared a lamp plate for two people, but really three people could share it. It came with two side dishes and they offered many bread rolls. So there is no need to have an entrée, in my opinion. The dish was delicious and perfectly cooked. The restaurant is great and the staff are lovely. So it is definitely worth... More

We had three course dinner, the menu was creative and lots of choice. I cant fault the food there were some lovely dishes overall its just was missing something so I would rate it 8/10. We had duck entree, and steak and wallaby for main, both very good but excellent. However, chocolate fondant and cheese plate they were perfect. Breakfast... More

Quality of food is excellent especially the breakfast. Close to those provided by the 5 star hotels. However, the price is a bit expensive.

We booked for dinner on a Saturday night and yes it was busy but the staff were quite attentive. We have had breakfast as part of the hotel stay but hadn't expected much from the dinner. We were wrong. The food was beautiful and the selection of wine was good. The service was efficient, overall exceeded our expectation.

A plentiful Breakfast Buffet, the fact you could order Barrister coffee was a pleasant surprise, and very welcome. Seating is in 3 sections, meaning there is a space for everyone - beside the food, in the adjacent dining room, or in the bright and airy conservatory overlooking the gardens. Complimentary newspapers too. Our children happily accomodated. The only downside was... More

Often, the restaurant at an hotel or resort is good but not great. Bella resaurant in the Yarra Valley Ldoge is way better than that. The food is innovative and based on local produce, the wine list features local wines at reasonable prices and the staff, although quite young, were well trained and very good at what they did. Warm... More

Very nice restaurant. Good choice for breakfast but the hot food unfortunately wasn't all that hot however the options provided would suit even the fussiest eater.

Dined here recently; had been advised if we wanted to eat we should make a booking.... so we booked in for 7pm, arriving to find only a few tables occupied! It was also a choice of a 2 or 3 course menu for either $60 or $70/head. I instantly just wanted to go back to our room and order room... More
