We've been to this restaurant a few times now (including with the use of an Entertainment Book discount card) and the ambience, service and food are all very good. The steaks and barramundi were melt in the mouth and the wines that we have sampled have all been excellent. It's also a beautiful environment in which to take lunch (they don't do dinners) outside on a warm day.

Just outside Healsville you will find this and many other wines. I visited Tokar and the wines were excellent. I especially enjoyed the Chardonay wines as they are not so buttery and of course the reds are fantastic.
Get someone to drive you ar take a taxi so that you can take advantage of this excellent estate.

We went to Tokar Estate for lunch as part of our winery tour with Ever Green Tours. The Estate is so beautiful with amazing views. We were greeted warmly & taken to our table. They waitress explained the menu, took our order & then took us up for our wine tasting so we could select the wine a wanted with our lunch. All the staff were polite & very friendly. We did not wait long before our food arrived at the table. It was amazing! My husband had beef & I had fish. Both cooked beautifully. We also had dessert & coffee. We would definitely go back to Tokar Estate again

Lunch here came as part of our tour of the wineries with Grape Escape Wine Tours. We ate inside even though the sun was shining as it was very windy on the terrace. Even though we were seated away from the windows, we could still enjoy the magnificent view of the vinyard. The preliminary wine tasting was most informative and the lunch itself was delicious. The service was impecable.

Lunch today for 4 was $340 so not a cheap meal, but that was 3 courses + 2 bottles of wine + coffee over 3 hours.

Wine tasting at the table was a novel idea which helped us select a wine for lunch - we chose the Pinot Noir $28 per bottle.

Entrees were nice, 2 Halloumi and a Calamari, and I had the Rabbit Soup which was excellent. Main courses were a bit slow arriving, the Gnocchi was lukewarm, the Pork Belly was reportedly not marinated well enough, no complaints about the Duck, and my Beef was also excellent.

Deserts were Greek Custard very tasty and Chocolate Fondant which looked great and disappeared completely in short time, and I shared a Cheese Plate with 3 local cheeses, quince paste, fruit and biscuits.

Coffee was fine.

As I said, not cheap, but a really nice view, tasty food and attentive service. Plan to return in warmer months to sit outside and enjoy the view over a few glasses of wine.
