When the Tokar Estate label was launched, Rita and Leon Tokar served wine and food to customers in their home. Their hospitality continues today in our picturesque restaurant and cellar door. The Mediterranean inspired building was designed to both take in and enhance its incredible surroundings. It is the ideal location to soak up the beauty of the Yarra Valley, with sweeping views over the gardens and vineyards to the mountain ranges.
RESTAURANT & CELLAR DOOR
Wine and food can be enjoyed in a variety of ways – à la carte, set menu or more casual wine tasting and platter pairings.
Our menu changes seasonally and reflects the surrounding region, and modern Australia’s multicultural cuisine. Our aim is to provide you with an enjoyable meal and experience. To that end, the food is hearty & honest and we make you feel at home. Come and drink in the views while you linger over a meal in the restaurant or on the deck.
Menu Created by our Head Chef Maria Kabal
New Menu will be online towards the Middle of July

We recommend contacting us in advance to book as there may still be limitations in place. Please call or fill in your details below to request a table.
