Magnificent food & wine for a romantic dinner

This restaurant is well worth a dinner visit. Beautifully laid out with the table spread enough that you're not listening to everyone elses conversations.

The dining staff & especially the sommelier were outstanding. He gave us an excellent recommendation for a Shiraz Viognier from a small local vineyard we had never heard of, & it was exceptional. The food was very good but not to the standard I had expected of a chef's hatted restaurant. The setting is beautiful but somewhat cheapened by the... More

Staff were good, lovely building and good food. Don't understand the chefs hat as.the food was pretty standard for this type of establishment. Good but not memorable.

My first visit the the Yarra Valley in ten years and all my '50 and Foodie' friends insisted I go to Eleonore's. So I did and here is my tale of woe. 1. Staff lacked experience and eye for service. Simple things such as getting the drinks order correct was unforgivable. 2. Food - menu limited with some food choices... More

Eleanore's is located in the Chateau Yering Estate and it is decorated in typical European style albeit a slightly 'poorer cousin'. Service was superb and the food befitting of a restaurant that had won awards. Our evening would have been perfect except for a very loud in-house Caucasian guest who is either deaf or just badly brought up. From pre... More

The most amazing and well preserved building from yesteryear. The food is exceptional with the perfect amount being dished out on your plate with a design of top chefs. You feel very special eating here and you do pay for it, is it worth it. Yes.

We found Eleonore's not as traditional as were expecting as the dishes were quite inventive. You can tell that the chef has tried to balance all the flavours carefully in the dishes as when eating you might find one ingredient overbearing but when you put them together it makes sense. Though this was interesting, I found some of the combinations... More

With food like this, why isn't this restaurant full every night? We had the restaurant practically to ourselves - what a surprise. As a result, the service was exceptional! Right from the amuse bouche of goats curd with truffle and sprinkled with ash, which sparked the evening off, through to the pre-desert hazlenut cheesecake, followed by cardamom panna cotta with...

Eleanore's is a must visit for a fine dining experience in the Yarra Valley near Melbourne. The food is excellent -the slow cooked lamb falls apart on the fork and is combined with vegetables that match perfectly. The desserts are also excellent. The lemon creme brûlée is combined with coconut, white chocolate and other delights that make each taste different... More

Our experience at Eleonores was just what we expected. The surroundings are sumptuous and beautifully set out. You are guided to your seat and have the choice of a set price two or three course menu. The food was indeed lovely, very well prepared and the flavours fresh and exciting. I would have liked a little more choice in each... More
