Service was good, we were welcomed and seated immediately on arrival. Wait staff were always on top of clearing plates and replenishing drinks. They were more than happy to answer any queries and had good knowledge of menu. Food was nice, though very small portions, full of flavour and very enjoyable. Somewhat pricey considering meal size. Loved the cured meats... More

My family of 8 went out to the Giant Steps on a Friday night. We had a fabulous evening. The service was faultless. The pizza was absolutely devine. Everything tasted so fresh. Prices were very reasonable. Best place in Healesville. Will visit again.

We booked dinner here on a Tuesday night as we were driving to the Yarra Valley straight from an evening flight into Melbourne and weren't sure what would be open. Overall the good was great, all small plates for sharing. The building itself is interesting and their wine list was great.

In brief the food was average for the price, we waited for an eternity for lunch and the waitress was simply the rudest I have ever encountered.. Common Australia if you to compete on the world stage in hospitality you've got to train your staff to be the customers needs on every occasion. There is much better in the valley.....

Arrived in Healesville after flight from Perth and 45 min drive - quite exhausted. The welcoming staff at Giant Steps made it all better with their banter and smiles. Pizza with potato, blue cheese and walnuts was one of the best I've tasted anywhere in the world.

This a great spot to visit for a wine, a coffee or something to eat. In particular, the pizzas are creative and tasty. The Portugeuse tarts are a must with coffee

Had an awesome lunch here--with too many pizzas (in a good way). Our large group tried almost all of them, in addition to lovely salads, green beans and tapas. My personal favorite was the potato pizza, but they were all fantastic (one was spicy pork or something rather that went very well with the lush pinots). Wines are also fantastic.... More

Went to Healesville to enjoy an beautiful autumn day and stumbled upon this lovely cafe/resturant. We had our little dog with us so we could sit outside where we enjoyed coffee and brekky. Not alot of choices, but it was hard to decide. All yummy food, great service and very staff. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend. Go and find out for... More

Dropped in for a cheeky red, ended up sitting outside enjoying three tapas plates and a selection of cheeses. Nothing too much trouble for wait staff, my colleague from UK was super impressed. The relaxed friendly atmosphere makes this place a must for any trip to Yarra Valley.
