Description: We are situated in the township of Warburton in the Upper Yarra Valley and enjoy a unique position on the edge of the Yarra river. Our facilities include a rear balcony and deck where you will see the foothills of Mt Donna Buang and listen to the river meandering through the valley.Our menu is changed seasonally and where possible local produce is sourced to bring you the very best the Yarra Valley can provide. The food is wholesome and fresh and servings are generous

This place has the worst food and worst service in Warburton.
i went there on a nice summers day with my partner and sat outside expecting a pleasant experience. the food took 2hrs to arrive, the staff were not apologetic and the burgers we ordered were completely burnt. the cutlery and glasses were dirty also.
save your time and money and stay away from this terrible place!!

The restaurant had a lovely outlook to the river and mountains. The menu included croque monsier which i love when done well. It was way after breakfast so the breakfast menu was off but the waitress was lovely and arranged it for me. It was fabulous as was the chicken schnitzel with chunky chips and homemade coleslaw that my friend had. The schnitzel was basically a small fillet, very tender and a lovely coating. All up a very enjoyable trip to the gorgeous town of Warburton and a fabulous lunch.

Ate lunch here a couple of weeks ago with my daughter, staff friendly but disorganised, sat out on back decking which was lovely on a sunny afternoon , ordered pita pizza and garlic bread, restaurant not busy, but after 45 mins had too ask where meal was and was told 2 min, food arrived nearly 10 mins later, very average food, probably would not eat here again, sorry

Tried this place a few times, initial visit was for breakfast. Food was burnt and cold by the time it got to us (which was ages). Assumed this was just a one off. Tried agIn, this time for dinner. Food was again sub par. Wine list appalling (especially given we are in the heart of wine country). New staff were equally disappointing. No need to come back here. Pity the outlook is great.

The food at this restaurant was fabulous. It looked great and tasted even better. They have several options for gluten free and vegetarian diners as well, although it's hard to go past the burger and chunky chips.
We have lunched there on several occasions and particularly enjoyed the view and ambience on the back balcony overlooking the river. I have seen other groups enjoying special occasions and they seemed very happy.
Staff have always been helpful and know the menu well. They can always alter things to your taste or offer alternatives.
The fresh juice bar is a healthy and tasty option too.
