Having read a few reviews was almost going to give this one a pass.
I'm glad we did not.
We visited for dinner on a Friday night. The restaurant was about a quarter full. We were greeted on arrival seated, presented with menus and had our drinks ordered and delivered within 5 minutes.
A good wine list with a nice range of prices. We selected a bottle of Whispering Hills Sparkling from the Yarra Valley for around $45.
Also a good range of wines by the glass.
The food; a small range to select from but there was something for everyone. For entree my partner and i shared a tasting platter for $22. The pate was magnificent even asked if they could do a take away.
For mains my partner opted for chicken I selected the crispy skin salmon. Both meals were excellent.
Dessert decided for a selection from the cake window and then coffee.
Service was attentive but not intrusive. Also what must be a first the bill came with out having to chase for it. In all a lovely evening, perfect for a couple wanting to finish the working week on a high note.
Cost, for two people having three courses with a bottle of wine $140 for the evening.
We will go again.

Not a great lunch. Chicken pie was small with no top. A pathetic salad to boot and very plain mash. One waitress was not appropriately dressed for a restaurant.

We ate at the Yarra Valley Herb Farm (which is listed here as Lilydale Herb Farm, making I hard to find on TA?) and were very pleased. Our group consisted of 2 vegetarians, 1 vegan and 1 other diner who needed disabled access. The restaurant was able to cater for all of us with a wide range of appetising and interesting menu choices, which we find very rare in Australian restaurants. The portions were generous and meals were delicious and arrived quickly. We got the impression that the new owners and staff are very capable and try hard to please. There is a ramp further up the drive if you need disabled access. We highly recommend it and would go again.

We visited this restaurant on and off for years, through new management and a change of location.
There are many changes taking place, all for the better. They have a great team that work well together. Our food was superb and very tasty and filling.
We will be back more often now and looking forward to bigger and better changes!

Our party of 7 had a wonderful meal, one saying the best steak his ever had, excellent gnocchi, 12 year old wanted to let the chef know he was a legend! Service was good considering the waitress was on her own. I hope they put more staff on as this will be their undoing.
We will be back and recommend it to our friends.
