Possibly the best views in the Yarra Valley. Great food and not overly expensive. It was very hot when we visited and we sat outside and enjoyed the food, wine and watched the birds in the banksias. A charming environment. The service was OK. A little slow and laid-back, but not a deal-breaker.

We had a fantastic dinner here, the food was very good value for money and the staff were so attentive and made us feel very spoilt. What a shame it is closing in December as I would have spent many more visits here. The views are spectacular!

The view from this restaurant is phenomenal. The food is amazing, however our waiter was a little awkward and clumsy - but overall lovely.

We had a fantastic lunch here. Staff were very friendly. The views are amazing and it's such a pity that they are closing in December. Get in quick!

Our group had lunch on a Sunday and were annoyed that when we booked, were not informed of the 10% surcharge. I can honestly say, that I felt like finding somewhere else to eat because of the unfriendly greeting we received upon entering. (We were on time). I agree, the host (or maybe the owner) in his late 40's was... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Mount Rael on 27th April 2013, the Zar room was perfect, with magnificent 180 degree view of the Healsville & surrounding mountains, that could be seen from the bedroom as well as a perfect size spa bath. I found the menu slightly confusing, but could not fault the food, wine list or the service... More

After we made our way up the roller coaster, unpaved, stone bouncing and chip causing driveway We were 'greeted' (i... More

Drive up a steep and winding unmade drive, walk through a simple entrance and come into an elevated restaurant with the most fantastic view over Healesville and valley, with mountainous backdrop. Stunning and envigorating. Food and service was excellent. The only shortcoming was that there was a $5 per head surcharge because we were a group of 16 (for Sunday... More
